Default **Imperial Kamado** CL Score/Restoration Project

I just love it when things come together! I responded to a craigslist ad on Thursday, it said "ceramic hibachi, flowerpot or yard art $15." I talked the guy into holding it for me until Saturday and pulling the ad, it was over an hours drive away from me, but I was going to be in the area for my daughters Volleyball Tournament. Turns out it was 2 miles away from the school!

Imperial Kamado Modern Style Medium







Replacement parts are not available for these Japanese Imperial Kamados, but the stainless Steel draft door from BGE will fit and not rust out. The firebox will be a challenge but some refractory cement should do the job and I'm up to it! 16" grill and 24" tall, it should fit in nicely with my Modern Large.



IK in an old BGE trolley



Another Kamado rescued! $15

Daughter's team, Rain City Thunder won the Domino's Pizza 16U Divison I Volleyball Tournament- Priceless!

I've got a Large Modern and they were only made from 1974-1986 and discontinued. That's why I'm really excited about this one! The Large has the tapered bottom also. Or as Dr.BBQ once called it a "shaved tail"!

I'm still kind of kicking myself for walking away on 9" clay Kamado some time ago. It was a Traditional #0, similar in size of a Mini Big Green Egg. At the time I thought it was too much to pay $50, but I've yet to see another.

Yup! Way outta my CL retrieval range, but since I was going to be in Spanaway it wasn't out of the way. The pic in the posting was pretty poor and it was a gamble that paid off.

So thats what they look like. I just answered an ad for "an original Big green egg". But when I called the guy says it has a reddish color. Hmm. I think its one of these Kamados.

Default ***Let the Restoration Begin!***

Took it apart today and scraped off the crud and other than the firebox its in pretty decent shape.





Anybody like puzzles?



Tools of the trade, JB-Weld and Hercules Furnace Cement



Cut the bolt heads off to remove the slider







If it doesn't warm up I may have to work on it in the Family room, I won't make any points with the OL!

You da man, Brian!! Keep the pics coming.

I'm hoping the reddish egg listed on CL 2 hours away doesnt get bought before I get down there but if so, I'll keep looking for a BGE.
