Thumbs up Just got My Kamado (Acorn)...let the game begin!

Well...I just pulled the plug on this grill after reading a lot of JMSetzler's thread about it here. Thanks again JMSetzler. I honestly could not make it past page 17 before running out and getting one just before Lowes closed.

I am not new to cooking on a grill...but new to all the stuff you guys do here. I love good que! I got the Char-Griller matching cover. Still need to find a good deal on a pizza stone and a ceramic dish or something. I'll be sealing it up good soon.

Also...I'm a sign guy...so I will be making a stencil for my champion football team and then painting it on my grill. Will any high temp engine paint do? If not, what's the right paint to get in colors? I also plan on doing my matching grill cover with my team also.

I am not ready for my burn in as of yet. I need to go through all the hardware and make sure it's put together tight and well.

Enough of the chit chat...here's the evidence!


In my basement for painting, checking the hardware, and just to admire.



Couldn't forget the Weber Charcoal Grate!


Anyways...yeah...I need to get my football team on this baby! Again...any tips on what colored paint to use would be great.

Finally, any tips for "burn in" on this thing? I read some people just washed the cast iron grate, sprayed some cooking oil (which kind?), and let it get nice and hot with some lumpwood charcoal. Is that all there is to it? I don't have any leftover BBQ to throw in there.
