Default New 22 yr old Imperial Kamado

Found this in my grandfather's shed last weekend. Restored it yesterday and am smoking pork today!

This thing had several hairline cracks. JB Weld did the trick.

High heat resistant paint. Even though this puppy will never see temps above 325F.

Very cool! Was the handle facing down like that? I think it faces up.

Thank you. I'm very pleased with it.

Yes, that's the original orientation- or at least thats how it was when i found it (as shown in the green photo). It swivels up and down, there are stops that allow it to go up to about 1/4" higher than horizontal.

1 hour in and the inside air temp is holding steady at 265-267. This is much easier than I expected.

Smile Gotta love Grandpa!!! He took good care of that!

Ive picked up a few of these over the past 2 years, and love them!!!!! I have learned a lot on this site about them too. If you have problems with the JB weld, then you will need to go get some of that furnace and fireplace adhesive. It really works super good. Here is my restore, it is a little outside the box for color, but it is what I like!!! I just ordered a official replacement cover for mine.
