Default I got lucky on the golf course . . .

and mentioned that I done a brisket on my Big Green Egg. The guy I was playing golf with said, "I have a Big Green Egg that I want to get rid of because I'm through cooking with charcoal. You can have it if you want it."

Nice guy that I am, I agreed to haul it away for him.

It is in pretty good shape. However, it is not a BGE. He bought the ceramic cooker when he was in Japan in 1988. It is a Kamado style cooker. Part of the tag is missing. It looks like it starts with Kinu. . . Most of the interior parts look like my BGE.

Here is what it looks like:

There is a deteriorated ring that sits atop the fire box. Three little blocks sit on this beveled piece. The fire ring sits on those.

I hope someone can answer some questions for me. Does anyone know the make of this unit? Where can I get parts? Is that ring, which is all but rotted away, really necessary? Could you just let the fire ring rest on the fire box like it does on a BGE?

I would sure appreciate any help here.

Thanks guys. (and gals.)

It looks like the Fire Ring is mortared into place, seems all the old Kamado's were done like this. I just chipped the Mortar away in mine and then repaired the Fire Ring and Box.

Rather than type a bunch, just click on my link in my signature line "Kamado Restoration".

You play golf with someone who is done cooking with charcoal? You should be ashamed of yourself.

Keep us posted on the restoration. Looks like it could be a great unit.

Nice score, one the Golf course I would say the odds are better of you scoring a hole in one than scoring a free Komando
