View Full Version : Newbie from the Cajun corridor.

I signed up a few weeks ago, but I've finally made it back to begin checking things out.

So far I have only slow cooked on my #7 Kamado. You can see a picture of it in action in my avatar. The cobalt blue tile looks awesome in person. I'm 5'7" and the top of the Kamado is just about eye level (giving you a perspective on big it is).

I use a coal basket, a cross bracket to hold a cooking pot or usually a water pan, a 22" grill at the normal level, and a top level 18" grill. It holds heat extremely well. I can hold 225F with a couple of hand fulls of lump charcoal for at least 12-hours without touching anything. A few more hand fulls can get me through 24-hours with no problems.

My most frequent meats cooked in order are, pork butts, sausage, ribs, brisket, pork loins, leg of lamb, and ham.

Welcome Hammerhead, Jump on in and enjoy the fray.

Yankee alert

What the hell you guys talking about?


Does that have something to do with sucking heads of mud bugs

a Kamado!!! Wow. I forgot all about those cookers. Cooked on one many years ago. Friend of mine has a Kamodo K9, custom tiled in green and orange ceramic with Miami "canes" on the front. Those cookers are works of art, and holds heat like none i've seen(dont comapre them to the green egg either, aint no ugly steel legs on a kamado.). When they are closed, they blend in with the landscape like a piece of garden art. Most of us here have black steel cookers.... you got the beauty.. we got the beasts. Amazing cooker. Wish ya didnt remind of them :) Got no room for anymore.

anyway... Welcome to our humble abode. Sit back grab a beer and enjoy!!

Coonass = Cajun and it has everything to do with sucking the head and pinching the tail
