The Medium is coming along fine, need to order a Stainless draft vent and a couple coats of Red enamel and this one hits the deck!

The firebox is one solid piece now.





Here she is waiting for the slider and a paint job. This is the trolley cart for my Large IK.

Brian:
Be sure to update your resume to reflect the Kamado restoration ability. I think you will move to the top of the line with those qualifications. Your work looks great. I think I'll search for some furnace cement and work on my fire ring. Keep up the good work.

A couple coats of BBQ Black and then I'll get down to a primary color.





What color should I go with? BGE Green or IK Red/Orange?

I may need to do a poll!

But the Chinese Kamado could also be an early BGE and I plan to sell it so I was thinking of going with either Green or Orange sponged into the Black like these Imperial Kamados

Rusty did his Sakura Kamado like this and it looks pretty sharp!

What do you think?

Default ***Finishing Touches to the Medium IK***

I picked up the bottom slide damper from my local BGE dealer.
(Sutters in Woodinville WA) $41 with the screen. Another very good reason to use BGE parts where applicable- the Stainless steel will not rust out like the original Kamado damper.



A small bead of Permatex RTV gasket silicone for the seal.



Band hinge back on.



Ready to rock!





I'm so proud! What do you think?
