    That’s great! My son and I went to their store here in Dallas and ogled and fondled the merchandise. My son has always wanted a Komodo, but really liked the silverbac, so he’s torn. I loved the Grilla. MCS.

    I plan on it! Double smoked ham for Easter will probably be next.

    Learning new cookers is a lot of fun. Sometimes frustrating but in the long run fun. Glad you are enjoying it.
    Now get busy!!

    Sorry for being gone from the forums for a bit. Life has been a little crazy between job, daughters' competition dance, and school. For some reason, I thought it a good idea for this old man to go get a graduate degree.

    But I digress!

    In short, the Kong has been awesome! I have mostly done shorter cooks but temperature management is a breeze with this thing! I have cooked a pork loin, some armadillo eggs, a pork butt, and several rounds of burgers, brats, and dogs in the past month. No issues, whatsoever.

    I did have a Vision kamado prior to owning this, so I probably have the technique down for building up temp slowly in kamados. However, I have found I prefer the adjustable intake on the Kamado to the Vision Pro Series. It is simpler and has fewer possibilities for air leakage. Additionally, this thing is pretty air-tight when I shut all of the vents after a cook. My lump lasts several cooks. I do still have some tinkering to do to get the smoke flavor profile where I want it, but that's just part of the fun.

    All in all, this has been an excellent buy. I'm looking forward to having a little more time in the near future to get more smoking in on this thing!

    Agreed! So happy I didn't find any damage. I will definitely be taking my time (with help!) to get this bad boy set up.

    Glad to see it has arrived an no mention of damage. Definitely wait for the friend you are in the home stretch now. No use in damaging the Kong and more importantly yourself.

    After some delays because of the weather, it finally arrived! -32 wind chill or not, I already have it unpacked and in the garage. I'll get it put together in the next couple of days when I can get some help from a buddy to lift it.
