Hello, folks! After about six months of online shopping/comparing/contrasting the benefits and detriments of various Kamado-style grills, I finally settled on the BKK. I almost bought the BKK5000 from Amazon, but saw there was a three week wait for shipping, and I didn't want to wait that long to play with my new toy. I couldn't find a BKK at any dealer in my area initially, but saw that a local Ace Hardware was offering a deal on a BKK 4000. I called the store, and was sent to another Ace location (Albertville, MN), where I was told they had two Kegs in stock. When I got to the store, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that they actually had a BKK5000, fully equipped. I brought my Keg home on June 14.

Since I got the Keg, it's been busy. I started by cooking four beer can chickens, then took my first foray into "low and slow" with a Boston butt. It turned out well, but the constant babysitting of the grill got me to order a Tip Top Temp unit, largely based on the previous recommendations of you fine folks. Last (July 4) weekend, the Keg was used for burgers, brats, steaks, and more chicken. This weekend, I'm picking up a few racks of ribs, which I'll cook at about 220 degrees overnight (thanks, TTT!). Looking forward to sharing with and learning from you all, new friends!

Thomas welcome to the forum - sounds like you are getting the hang of it

Just a tip ribs are not an overnight cook

at 220 St.Louis or Spares are 5-6 hours and babybacks are 3.5-4.5 hours - do the bend test to know when they are perfect

Have fun ask and post away
