A great upgrade to my Classic Joe

I am slowly having to upgrade my original Classic Joe. The Kontrol Tower Top Vent was a needed and very functional upgrade to make. Fits perfectly. Highly recommend.

A great upgrade over the original top vent

I recently bought air vent to replace one from my Kamado Joe that I bought about 2 years ago. My old one was made out of cast iron, and it had a couple of rust spots on it. I also disliked how the vent shifted when I opened the lid. This new one is much better because it doesn't move, no matter what position you have it in. I also feel good about the cast aluminum design, and I don't think rust will be an issue.

Good product, fit is loose

Waited 6 weeks to receive. BBQ Guys did a great job communicating the delays. Once I received it was constructed well and looked great. Installation is simple, take off the old and put on the new. Fit was loose and I contacted Kamari Joe the same day I received. KJ promptly replied and sent out additional gasket to tighten up the fit. Have not received gasket yet but I feel it will fix the problem once I do.

Did not fit my KJ Classic

I ordered this here and got it quite quickly, was anxious to try it out as opposed to the "Daisey Wheel" that came with my classic. Unfortunately, I slid the original off and put this on but it was too large to fit properly, very loose on my JKC, I was afraid it wouldn't seal correctly and that it would fall off if I opened the top. KUDOS to the BBQ Guys though who promptly gave me a refund. I so wish it would have worked!

Paint coming off.

Like others, I have the same issue. I heard somewhere that the aluminum is power coated. Paint peeling should not happen if powder coating took place. Anyway, I am not impressed by flash, only function. As to the function, I have noted that the issue that I have is that the slide can stick. Not talking about the fine adjustment portion, but the open it up wide open part. Apparently smoke, water, and creosote can work itself between the parts causing it to stick. Not that huge of a problem since the top can be completely removed, and later the whole thing cleaned. I might opt for the old cast iron vent later on. Just bought my KJ and loving it. So far cooked several pizzas, Boston butt, chicken thighs, and a whole packers brisket all to perfection. I am just not completely impressed with this top.

Kamado Joe Classic Kontrol Tower Top Vent

I have this vent on a Kamado Joe Classic that I have had for about 3 months. Maybe used it 5-6 times, mostly long slow cooks. It is a pain to keep it from sticking shut on both the fine adjustment and the slide open part. I have tried a number of things like washing it, exercising it vigorously when hot etc, but looks like it is just going to be an annoyance no matter what. After it gets hot, it will usually break free, but I really need it to swing wide open to get the grill started. If you pull the whole thing off to clean it etc. then it gets loose and will never be able to adjust it.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.

$6.95 Flat-Rate Shipping

Anything under $49 ships at one low price. If your order increases, your shipping stays the same!

30-Day Returns

Return all new, unused, and unassembled items in their original packaging, and we'll give you a full refund minus the cost of the original AND return shipping.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
