  • Removing top chimney vent

    I just replaced my Kamado Big Joe gasket. Wanted to replace my top chimney vent too. But it seems to be welded in place! Can't get it off.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Sounds like the gasket for the cap is fine. Don't touch it.

      It actually seems to leak a bit.

        It is most likely stuck from cooking residue. I would get it good and hot and see if you can get it off.

          Try to heat the metal via a torch and it should expand w/o the ceramic expanding as much. With a pair or welders gloves on try to pull it off.
