Product Description

The Kamado Joe is unlike traditional barbecues in that the unique shape and natural ceramics retain heat efficiently yet controlling the temperature is easy with just a few simple airflow adjustments. Inside the ceramic egg, a ceramic bowl holds the charcoal. A draft opening in the lower side of the grill provides air to the charcoal and a controllable vent in the dome lid allows air to leave the cooker. Adjusting these two vents controls the internal temperature in the cooker. A hole in the lid allows the thermometer to be inserted for monitoring the temperature. All ceramic grills are not created equal. Kamado Joe cookers use the best refractory material for the cookers, fire boxes and fire rings. Each high fire ceramic piece has a minimum one inch thickness. You can actually smoke a brisket for 24-hour without adding charcoal every few-hour. The grill also acts as a self cleaning oven. After cooking simply open the vents and allow the grill to reach a temperature of 500-Degree for 15-minute. Beyond quality ceramics the Kamado Joe BBQ uses powder coating and materials like 304 stainless steel and thick finished bamboo for weather resistant qualities.

I even talked to the owner and founder of the company and he explained the legal battle he's in with this retailer.

The best thing to do is go to a BGE dealer and a Kamado Joe dealer and compare them for yourself.

EDIT: See WARNING below!

About a year ago (last memorial day), my wife and I decided we needed to get a backyard grill. I was all in favor of the idea but not a fan of the particulars -- meat cooked on gas grills always tastes like Butane to me, and I've never been a fan of the Weber charcoal grills, either, largely because of the rusted-out home for retired spiders that we had in our backyard when I was growing up.

So because I didn't like either of the alternatives, and because I was intrigued by everything I read about them, I decided what I really wanted was a ceramic grill. But they were too expensive. So a year later (this past memorial day), when I realized it'd been a year and I still wanted a ceramic cooker, I decided to pull the trigger after all. I considered a few different brands: the "killer app" of ceramic cookers is the Big Green Egg, and they have the widest range of accessories and the most active fan base (to the point of hosting regular "Eggfests") but they also have a policy of forbidding all online vendors, and that irritated me -- I prefer to do my shopping online, without a salesman trying to upsell me extended warranties or accessories or delivery charges or whatever else. There are a lot of other potential options out there in the world of ceramic cookers, many of which may be great, and I looked at most of them, but for a mix of reasons (not least among them simple aesthetics), decided on this particular cooker.

I've had this grill now for about a month and cooked on it multiple times, and I've been pleasantly surprised -- the results have completely lived up to the hype surrounding ceramic cookers.

After learning about the Kamado style grills, I started reading a lot about them and learning who the players are. I realized that the Kamado Joe was up there with the best of them. You can read about Kamado grills and cookers all over, so I won't write about that. I will tell you that the quality of this item is outstanding. It works exactly as they describe it. It's a gorgeous looking thing, but I admit there is a learning curve, especially if you've never use a charcoal grill. For example, little did I know that in order to attain the high temps (for example 600F or 800F plus) you must organize the charcoal with the big chunks at the bottom. It's all about ventilation. If you just dump the bag, forget about it. If they are all small pieces, forget about it. That said... there's nothing wrong with just dumping the bag if all you need is a "standard" grilling session for something like fish, chicken breasts or thin steaks.
I also purchased the heat deflector and pizza stone and was able to successfully bake a couple of 15" pizzas, they turned out outstanding. It was easy too!
However, for the bad news and a word of caution. As of this writing 7/12/11 there are ZERO online resellers available for the Kamado Joe grills. That includes this website you're reading on. I left the name out in hopes that this review is not censored. I love shopping for things here, heck I even have a Prime membership, but these guys are not allowed to sell these items and they do not care. What this means is that you're purchasing an item with no warranty!!
To me that was one of the big selling points. Amazing. Go to the kamado joe website and you'll see their own information, I'm not making this up. I even talked to the owner and founder of the company and he explained the legal battle he's in with this retailer. The bottom line is that they are not allowed to sell them online. Buyer beware.

I purchased this grill about two years ago from a local dealer and have been extremely pleased. It can reach temps of 600+ degrees for searing restaurant quality steaks or you can keep it low and slow at 225 for an all day or all night smoking. Smoking is my favorite. Get the bowl loaded up with lump charcoal, get the temp set, and go about your day. There is no need to watch this smoker all day. It will stay on temp until the end. Controlling the temp can be tricky at first, but after a few times you will get the hang of it. I was going to get a BGE originally, but I found the KJ at a local distributor for about $200 less. After closer inspection, it seems that the ceramic is almost twice as thick as the BGE. I don't know if that makes any difference while cooking with it, but it seems a little more sturdy, IMHO. The best thing to do is go to a BGE dealer and a Kamado Joe dealer and compare them for yourself. Then you can make your decision after putting your hands on both of them. The price and quality were the main reasons that I chose this grill and I haven't been disappointed once.

I bought this item earlier this year. Makes the best pizzas we have ever had, and we have some good pizza restaurants here. I would highly recommend this product. The support from the company has been great! Definitely join this group on Facebook. This has been a great help with all the tips on how to cook using the Kamado.

I don't really need to say much on this - this is a excellent product.
It's worth it's weight in gold!
We purchased ours 2 and a half years ago.. it took us a few months to get the hang of using it! But food comes our moist and delicious - I highly recommend if you like tandoori or Moroccan/middle eastern type food! You can not replicate the smokey charcoal and succulent-ness that a Komado Joe can do!
