Doesn’t a deflector plate without an insert create cyclonics?
While the deflector plate does encourage airflow around the dome (which helps heat it up) it doesn’t promote even heat distribution at the grill plate. The hourglass shape of the insert, which is called a hyperboloid, manipulates and accelerates airflow so that when it reaches the dome, it spirals around the food on the grill. The chamber nature of hyperboloid form increases internal pressure, creating a true cyclonic airflow.
What are the recommended temperatures with the insert?
The insert was designed for low and slow temperature cooking between 150°F to 400°F.
You can use the insert at higher temperatures, up to 500°F and should still see some of the benefits i.e. cyclonic airflow and more even temperature in the dome.
Doesn’t my [insert other thing] cause spiral/cyclonic airflow?
Probably not. We modeled ~600 different design iterations to optimize for the most even temperature distribution and smoke spirals for flavorful food.
While some shapes may encourage spirals or improve evenness, the insert is the optimal design and structure for both these effects.
Does it retrofit my Classic Joe II, BGE etc.?
Yes. Each insert is designed for the common kamado grill plate sizes i.e. 18” and 24”.
It may not perform as well as in the Classic III and Big Joe III. The insert is optimized for these smoker shapes and sizes.
