I can't find the Maverick remote thermometer at Sharper Image website or in their latest catalog. Help!!

Webmaster note:  Sharper Image apparently no longer carries the unit I have, but it seems to be available if you click here.

Great site! Your descriptions and recipes for the Kamados left me "slavering". You traveled on a plane with my wife to Atlanta in May and we have been looking at buying a Kamado grill since you introduced her to the concept. Maybe soon! Cheers, Ian & Karen Goddard

This is EXCELLENT info! Thanks for taking the time. I wish the manufacturers would provide more detailed info like this. Some of them have started putting their owner's manuals online, which is a start. Even this seems to be rare.

Thorough information on the remote thermometer. Is it made for outdoor cooking or have you adapted it? Last non-remote Polder I had got overheated on the grill even though I was careful. I had to order a new probe. I slow-cook my ribs and the temp wouldn't be a problem, but I wanted to get one for a friend who grills at higher temps and likes a hot fire. Would you recommend this product for him, based on your experience?

your site is the first I've found that describes the cornish game hen as a baby chicken. Have wanted to raise them here on the farm but didn't know they were just baby cornish rocks. Now I just need a source here in central Texas to buy the cornish rocks, maybe the hatchery in Cameron, TX has them.

Hello. Great review of the Remote Check by Maverick. I received one of these over a year ago, but there were no instructions in the box. I can only figure out how to work the transmitter, not the receiver. There is no phone number on the box so I couldn't contact them and my searches on the web have come up empty. Would you mind providing me with the customer service number you have? I really would love to learn how to use this properly. Thank you very much!

i'm sure you have found out by now that your recipe for "bulgoki" is actually a recipe for "kalbi". bulgoki is boneless beef, thinly sliced. :) Other than that, the recipe looks to be an excellent one for kalbi! have a great day!

I received my #7,along with many accessories, in September. So far, each meal from our cooker has been a homerun. The learning curve regarding temperature regulation requires much attention. My best analogy would be comparing sailing to powerboating, requiring more awareness and attention. By the way, I am a powerboater that has done some offshore sailing. Maybe you can help me to attain searing temperatures(650+degrees) on my #7. Seems to me that it shouldn't too complicated, the only variables being fuel and air. In case you are interested, my Kamado's new home is somewhat near to you. My address is 25 Cripple Creek Run, Milton, DE. This is 10 miles north of Rehoboth Beach, DE where my business is located. What do you think about arranging a mid-Atlantic Kamado event? I own an RV resort that could be a neat host-site. I very much appreciate your generosity in sharing your suggestions, experiences, and most importantly your enthusiasm. Please keep up the great work, it is utilized and appreciated!

We stop by often and check out your recipes since we had our Kamado delivered a couple of weeks ago. One request, we need some times ie. on the pork chops, steaks, burgers, etc. But so far everything has turned out great. Think its my husband that want to know how long, typical engineer.

Alan and Lauren, I found your sight from a search using "AllTheWeb". I started out looking for Carolina Pulled Pork Recipes. I wanted a couple of them for comparison purposes. Yours' was one of the sights. Armed with my gas Weber (for quick cooking--like when my family needs to eat today---and finishing) and a moderate sized smoker with separate fire-box, I always like to turn the cooking into an adventure. When I saw your recipes, tips and tricks, I felt I hit the mother load. I am planning trying some of them this weekend! Thanks and nicely done web-site! Dick Resh Downers Grove, IL

Dear Allan, I can only compliment you on this outstanding web site. I was so inspired by the documentation of your use of the Kamado that I have ordered and received a #7. The Johnsons are truly fortunate to have such an avid user as yourself chronicle the use of their product. Thank you, Craig Thomas By the way, drilling a 5/32" dia hole in the back of the unit makes the remote digital temperature probe more convenient and allows you to keep the analog thermometer on the front. A 5/32" dia. masonry drill is commonly used with 3/16 "tapcon" anchors if anyone has trouble finding a /32nd dia. drill on the shelf in a small town hardware store. Be sure and support the inside of the hole to prevent breakout when the bit comes through. Worked great on my BGE as well!

Going to do some baby backs today and plan on a slow smoke. I'm using Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning for the dry rub. You didn't indicate what your dry rub was made of, so since I'm from South Louisiana and am a Cajun, I think I'll use a BBQ sauce made from Ville Platte, La., John Miller's BBQ sauce. Great Web page with many interests that my husband and I share. Keep up the good work. We did like the ribs from Dreamland in Atlanta. Later...Barbara & Dave

The recipe you show for Bul Go Ki is actually for a Korean beef rib dish called, "Kal Bi". You will need to ask your butcher to cut the ribs across the grain, instead of the traditional western cut where the ribs are simply separated.

Mr. Z Man. Enjoy the site and all the knowledge packed into it. Just ordered my #7 and feel I'm in training in anticipation of my new culinary asset. I'm intrigued by all the discussions and creativity behind the use of the K. Have played around with "smoking" a few years back on my Weber using different woods for flavoring. I can't wait to fire up the K when it arrives. With the help of all the K-folk, I feel that I'm entering into this deal with more knowledge. It's great that one can start learning before the new toy arrives!!! Thanks to you and all the K-folks out there! Mark

what a crack-up! Loved the directions for Mac and cheese. The first time My husband made mac and cheese (he was in his late teens) He drained the noodles and left them in the colander. His explanation--"they didn't say put it back in the pot." Good Lord, this man operates on people these days! Just wanted to let you know I enjoyed the bit of levity.

Hi,

Just want to let you know I purchased my first Kamado in Japan in 1972 when my husband was transferred there by an American company. I had it shipped to the states when I left and continue to use it frequently. In fact I have coals getting hot to smoke a turkey for a going away party at 12:00 noon today. I have been thinking of getting a new one as mine is looking a bit tired--wow! have the prices climbed (like everything else, I guess).

Bye.

Thanks for the shrimp/garlic recipe. I found some unusually large shrimp also and couldn't resist. I got home and went straight to my computer and Google to find a recipe worthy of these beauties and after mulling over a bunch of everyones' secret recipes, decided to try yours. I wasn't disappointed and was anointed the big kahuna chef of the day by my family. The brining worked wonders and made the shrimp just as you said they'd be, like lobsters.

Thanks again,

Hi, We are seriously thinking of purchasing a Kamado and when checking out their website we checked out yours also. I am writing in hopes you have a cookbook out or know of one. Your website is great but I hate to have to print everything in it so please let us know if you have a cookbook. Thank You, Don Bastian PS By the way we had a Kamado cooker about 35 years ago and it was GREAT, unfortunately we have forgotten how to cook on one i.e. the timing etc.

I used manual exp. aperture was f8.5, ISO 100,speed was 8 seconds. Thank you for your advice. it worked great.

Hey Zen 'man', Been visiting for a while now, just have not signed your guest book. Love the website...best I've seen in a long time. I have not become a part of the k'n family but hope to soon , I hope. I want a #7 "fat boy" I call 'em, so bad I can't stand it. My wife just rolls her eyes and says "yah, I know that look... you'll have one soon." cause when I set my mind to something I'll either do it or get it, she's proof.  Ahh! Just a couple of quick ?'s Why won't Richard post the price of a #3 and #1? Is he skeert? and when will you post some more pic's of zoe? Oh and does anyone ever do deer or elk on the fat boy? what about a wildgame page? thanx Zen 'man' big b

{Webmaster's note:  The Kamado company had posted the revised price list earlier that same day... timing is everything <s>.  Because bib B didn't leave an email address, I figured I'd post the information here.  As for photos of Zoe, I'm working on it, and perhaps I'll post some sound file of her carrying on with Joshua.}

Nice cruiser pictures, thanks for sharing.

I have a R1200CI "Phoenix". Just got a Bagster cover and bag and the national cycle grab rail (same as in your pictures). I was curious if you had any tips on mounting the Bagster tank cover. Also, what hardware should I use to mount the grab rail? I currently don't have any back seat (small or large).

I'm in LA, so if you're ever in the area, let's go for a ride!

Found the Kamado.com site after searching for "Outdoor Cooking" devices in hopes of researching Camp Stoves. While we would have a hard time packing a "K" in and out of camp, we were interested none the less. After finally getting a home of our own, we are patiently awaiting our custom #7. Without the nice folks at Kamado, the owners Forum, and Excellent sites like yours we might still be slaves to a Weber!! Hope to share info with you for many years to come.

And Thanks So Much Now!!

Great web site, I will be passing this on to my father who has owned and cooked on a Kamado pot since the refuge airlift in the early 70's.

I really appreciate your sharing your Kamado tips and recipes with everyone. All I've tried have been delicious. I look forward to trying some of those using the indirect method if I ever get the lower bracket I ordered several months ago. Keep up the good work. I am sorry I was unable to see your demo at the cookoff.

Well, as a current Data Administrator and cyclist (but not a 'bent yet), I will also soon own (well, as my credit card has been debited I guess I now own, and will soon possess) a new K7, I would say that your web site should be required reading for new owners.

I have never seen a bbq like this before, they are stunning to look at. I have just bought a smoker and am beginning to explore the delights of food cooked this way. It is sometimes hard to guess what food looks like when it is cooked this way, pulled pork in particular, at least your site has some pictures for me to aim at. Thank you.

Alan,

I love your cooking pages, as I said in an earlier e-mail, a chance finding of these pages is what MADE me order my Kamado.

You are a great chef in my book, and photographer, and inventor, and engineer, and you love the arts that's good, and knives and knife making are phenomenal hobbies, and your computer skills are immense................but you lack completeness.......sell the BMW and get a Harley!!!!

Just one man's opinion!

Thanks for continuing with the recipes for the Kamado, I come here often.

Read your encounter with Hoboken Eddie. I cried when he closed his little hole of a restaurant down the block from me. The sauce business was just so much more promising than his tiny, mostly takeout restaurant. His pulled smoked turkey BBQ was killer. Don't see him around much any more, but I buy his sauces all the time. His base BBQ sauce is still the best I've ever had...

Your wasabi and garlic steak sounds very much like the way I do a prime Rib Roast

Mix a whole horseradish root or two pureed with a touch of vinigar with about twenty roasted garlic cloves

cover the prime rid with the mixture and roast in a preheated oven at 450 for 20 min then reduce the temp to 325 until done The result will be a hard flavorful crust protecting the roast and what falls of adds to the gravy.... enjoy

I also seem to share many of your interests--infatuated with knives, like digital cameras--like to cook (oops-I mean eat my wife`s cooking) and also happen to be Jewish. I'll try some of your recipes and let you know what we think

I will be shopping for a new outdoor cooker for this spring. I want a cooker that will slow cook, smoke, and sear the full gamut of foods. I presently use a Ducane gas grill, but it doesn't get hot enough for searing without overcooking delicate foods like fresh tuna steaks and wild game. I would prefer a cooker that is convenient to use and easy to maintain as I am self-employed and work outrageous hours during the summer season. I have only very briefly seen a Kamado cooker (in a store) and question if it has a large enough cooking surface for a small gathering of 6-8 people. Is it a disadvantage to not have a searing (hi-temp) area and a resting (low temp) area? I would appreciate any comments.

Many thanks for the advice. I'll call you back when I've done my homework on Act. My current e-mail is weinhaus@post.harvard.edu.

My very best,

I have a NU-Temp 700 remote thermometer, which has been a disaster. Had to send it back twice and it is very complicated to operate. However, it does have all the "bells and whistles," i.e. high and low temp settings, as well as temperature range setting, timer, calendar, back lit lcd. The remote can receive transmissions from 4 individual probes, but each probe has to have its own transmitter. The company (Wireless Alarm Products) said that a newer, less complicated model was in the works and should be out around 3-2001.

Since I have had such a miserable experience, I am leery of these things. It is a necessity to have two probes, otherwise, you are only getting half the information you need for "long" cooking (roasts, large birds, etc.). I use a "one touch" Weber and a large Big Green Egg.

You mentioned a problem with the probes, in that they would only take temps up to 410 (570 with new version). Is this the sensor end of the probe, only, or is this the max temp the wire going to the probe can be subjected to? If it is the latter, that really does present a problem -- or at least lets me know I must have the dome temp under these temps before using the probe.

Thank you for your comments and web site.

Enjoyed your site - one of the best personal sites I've run across. Found it by following the link on your post to the Cruisers BB. We seem to share many interests - motorcycles, photography, etc. I also have been experimenting w/digital and setting up home tabletop set-ups, but my first love is still B&W film & prints. Have been having lots of fun recently w/6x6 - Minolta Autocord, Rollei Automat and recently picked up a nice Zeiss Ikonta folder.

Anyway, thanks for the view - maybe we'll meet @ a NJC gathering (I'm new to the group, too - haven't officially joined yet but follow there posts and went on a great Fall Foliage run w/them at the end of last season. They're a real nice group of folks.) I'm ridding an '88 Honda Shadow bought last summer.

Alan,

I followed the link from the Kamado web site and used your recipe for the Prime Rib Roast.

I made the Prime Rib Roast on Saturday. It was excellent! I own a K #5 and to my surprise my cast iron skillet fit really well on my #5. The 5.4lb Prime Rib was tender and done to perfection in just over two hours at 270 degrees. A specialty grocery in my area had the Char-Crust rubs so I bought and used the Garlic Peppercorn. Wonderful stuff!

I am looking forward to trying more of your recipes on the K.

Thanks!

It is probably that the units work best together when both have the same orientation as then the antennae (which almost certainly run along the long axis of the units) are oriented the same way.I will bet that you had your transmitter lying down! In this orientation, it will be important that the units are pointing the same way, not at right angles to each other. Standing up removes this concern.
