    You can remove the cooker from the rolling base.
    You can take out the fire ring and the firebox.
    If it is still too heavy, you can loosen the bands and actually take the top half off of the assembly.
    You might not need that step, but if you do, it can be done.

    That's assuming it's a before 2017 Classic.

    If it's a Classic II
    The firebox/fire ring are all one assembly that can still be dismantled.

    Most people are afraid to loosen the bands, right up until they need to replace either the top, the bottom or the bands themselves. Suddenly, they get the courage to do the deed.

    So, nothing to be afraid of, just be careful if you do the full dismantle. Take some pictures so you remember exactly how everything goes together.

    Best regards,
    Jim

    Thanks for the quick replies! Looks like a doable project and I will owe my buddy a case of beer and some ribs instead of my first born. I'll try and get a camera going for the action per request.

    This is a fantastic website, glad I stumbled on it.

    I have emptied mine out and can pick it up to move it, for the stairs you could strap it to a 2 wheel dolly and move it that way

    Welcome to the Pit! I don’t know anything about the KJ weights, but I had a friend get an XL BGE and he was able to get that upstairs (narrow staircase). He admitted it was NOT easy, but it is well worth it!

    I would think you could remove the lid and take out some internals to distribute the load among several trips.

    We need pics of the epic journey up the stairs! Video even of the spiral ascent!

    This will be awesome!

    The total weight of KJ classic is 188 lbs so I'm guessing the shell by itself will weight around 90/100 lbs. It will be a slow process but two healthy men should be able to handle it.

    started a topic Kamado Joe Weight ?

    Kamado Joe Weight ?

    I am looking to take the plunge into the world of Kamado grilling. I was looking at the Joe-Stand alone Classic - the 18 in model.
    Seems to check all the boxes. The kicker - it has to be hauled up to the 5th floor for install, with one spiral staircase along the way (unless it lives in a small outdoor alcove.

    For those of you with the Joe, how light can I get it by removing all the accessories non-essential parts to haul it up? Due to stair width, this has to be a 2 person job at most.

    Thanks!

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
