KnightOfTheFlax Posted April 21, 2022 Share Posted April 21, 2022 Hi all, I recently purchased the Aldi Kamado and have a couple of performance questions. 1. Despite using real high quality lump charcoal I cannot get the temp up above 350 degrees. I attempted a pyrolytic clean yesterday hoping to get it up to at least 450 but at 350 it seems to run out of steam and then the temp starts falling slowly. I lit it with a 3/4 full fire box, let it go for 10 mins with lid open, then ran it with bottom and top vents open full. Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong? 2. See attached pics. When it was at 350, smoke was pouring out of the seal between bowl and lid where there is this slight gap in the seal. This must be an error right? Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a returnable issue, or are there solutions I can apply to solve it? Thanks in advance. Ben. IMG_5370.pdf IMG_5371.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
