    I've had mine for going on 4 yrs now. It will last forever and is very versatile as stated. Once you learn where to set your vents you will never want to cook on anything else. Easy to clean too. Just run it as hot as you can for a couple of hours then use a stiff bristle brush and done.

    You made a great decision especially for that price!!

    It replaces the grate at the bottom of the grill. I am not sure it is nesseary for a kettle. It is more about airflow for kamados. They have so little airflow that plugging ash can kill a cook. Which is why the KAB is helpful. It replaces the grate and allows for more airflow. it does make clean up easier too. I'd say I would pass if you have the SNS basket already. Dr. Pepper

    Hey, Murdy , that's a different thread! (Rodney Dangerfield and Kamado, who knew? 🤷🏻‍♂️)

    efincoop Spinaker I just visited the Kichashbasket website. Question re: The 'Ring of Fire' for a 22" Weber kettle. How does that change anything, vs simply using the stock charcoal grate that comes with the kettle? Is it simply the ability to pick up the cold basket before the next cook and shake off the ash? Is there anything else I'm missing? (Especially if one already has a SNS basket)
    Thanks

    I just have 1 and only use it occasionally. Nice to have though.

    Attjack thanks...no rush. I'm thinking I may get the second rack in the near future.

    I could check for you later. You can definitely put big butts up there.

    Attjack that's an awesome deal as well! Any idea how much room is between the upper rack and the lid?

  • Attjack

    I felt the same way. I got my Primo with SS table, deflectors, expansion rack, extra firebox, cover, a fan, a controller, charcoal, and about 50 pounds of wood all for $500.

    Spinaker I really made out like a bandit. I almost felt guilty of committing robbery.

    My last observation is regarding the ceramics. This cooker preforms virtually identically in the winter as he summer. That’s bc once you heat soak the ceramic, cold weather won’t change how it cooks. Understand you need to give your cooker at least 45 mins to warm up. That allows you 365 days a year of cooking. 🎉🎉. One of the great benefits of ceramic is the heat bouncing off the top onto your food. Spatchcocked chicken is perfection around 400 degrees in 45 mins bc the skin gets crunchy.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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.

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


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.
