    New toy...

    Got a new toy to play with...but haven’t had a chance to even open the box. Doh!
    Hopefully I’ll be able to put it together on Tuesday or so...

    Also picked up a couple of “Flame Tamers.”
    Depending on how I use it, I might get two more. Time will tell.

    Read a bunch o’ revues on the pizza oven accessory and think I might need to grab one. I already have pizza stones for my WSCGC & Summit gasser...but I really like the look of that Camp Chef pizza “doodad.” ;-)

      I was “considering” one after seeing it online...and then seeing several posts about them here...

      When looking again recently, I was told by Camp Chef that it’s been discontinued...with no replacement on the horizon. So that prompted me to get one while I still could. From all the “propaganda” it doesn’t really do anything that any of their other stoves can’t do...it just doesn’t look so “camp site”/temporary as their other offerings. That appealed to me...and portability is a non-issue.

      Hey, its another arrow in your quiver, just think of breakfasts prepared on the deck next
      weekend, from eggs right down to the toast or Pizza and not over heating your kitchen cooking inside.
      Again I'm jealous, mind you mine would be sitting in a snowbank right now but the idea of doing a complete meal on one unit....priceless.

    Congrats again. Those are so much fun to cook on. I got my eye on the pizza thingy too. So many appliances, so little cash...

      Yeah, every so often I go mad and then it’s like “welcome to the real world.” What do you mean I have a phone bill due?! LOL

      Glad you got one while you could. Your box looks to be in much better shape than mine was when delivered...…….a common complaint with these as you probably saw in your research. I don't remember if we discussed this on Kathryn's threads, but often the leg mounting stubs are a bit bent, to a lot bent. As good as your box looks yours may be on the moderate side. While sturdy enough when assembled, the steel moves fairly easily to straighten the stubs. I used a longish crescent wrench to lever them straight, piece of cake. The only parts I see that might be tough to fix would be the large stainless panels. I also mentioned on Kathryn's thread that the flame out, or refusal to light, is a product of the air adjustment disc on the burner stems (assuming the igniter is positioned correctly). I tried to adjust for max blue flame on the burner, but that didn't work. I had to tamp my OCD and accept a tad bit of yellow in the flame for smooth operation.

      Enjoy the heck out of that thing, it is so versatile.


        I have the double burner italia pizza oven attachment for mine. It works great a get HOT. As in maxes out my IR temp gun at over 750°! When the stars align and I get a good run on my part of the pizza, it cooks it phenomenally.


          Congrats! You're going to love it!

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

          Amazingribs.com temperature magnet

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

          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.
