    Worried about fire

    At the last minute my wife said she wants my kamado joe in our outdoor bar. It's framed with wood will have concrete counter ontop plywood base. In the cabinet can I use cedar around inside of cabinet or do I need to use something else? I'm worried about the heat not so much sparks. And thoughts would be great

    Should be ok. I have a primo which I know they sell a teak table for. The outside does get hot, but not hot enough to start a fire. Just be careful on the framing. These things are heavy!!

    Is it a ceramic one or a metal one? I've seen some metal ones recently which i would be leery about. But, a ceramic smoker should be fine. I agree that the outside of Primo doesn't get that hot either. +1 on HEAVY!

    Re: Worried about fire

    My concern would be the occasional sparks or backfire, you should have some non-flammable surface under/in-front of your bottom vent.

    If you google Primo Oval Stand primo sells a real version that is very nice. In the few years and hundreds of pounds of charcoal I don't believe I have ever got an ember out the bottom vent.

    Re: Worried about fire

    Agreed, that is not how the airflow goes, air goes in the bottom and out the top. So, if there is an ember to be had theoretically it will come out the top. But, if you don't let the coals cool fully you could pull some hot coals out with the cleaning tool. I've seen people put a piece of sheet metal in front of the lower vent on the primo forum.

    Re: Worried about fire

    If the worry is when removing ash. Lazy pays here. Just wait. If you don't want to wait you could just have a piece of HD foil or aluminum that you put then when you remove the ash. Personally I find that the removal tool is very messy. I use it to scoop the ash to the front then use a small dry vac to suck it out.
