If you are comparing this to the Egg, deciding between the two, I would recommend this unit over the Egg. It has everything you need included to get started. The Egg is a great grill, virtually unchanged in 20 years, and practicing the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" principle. And of course, they have owned the market for some time. However, what this creates is an incentive for competitors to innovate in order to cut into that market. The Kamado Joe Classic II could not be a better representation of that principle. The lid assist mechanism literally makes open the grill a two finger job, and the lid "stays" wherever you let it go, not slamming down unless it's fully articulated like the egg. The removable ash tray is great, the side tables are more than suitable, and the aluminum rain/vent cap along with all stainless hardware gives you the confidence that this grill will last! The divide and conquer grill system is awesome, but as some may know, since this grill shares the same dimensions as the BGE large, you can purchase this system and use it on the Egg as well.
If I were buying my personal grill for the first time today, it would be the Kamado Joe like I got my father. I have nothing against the Egg, it has dominated the market for a long time and has made kamado grilling what it is today. But this unit is just far better thought out, I really can't find a place with the Egg outshines it. The dimensions are the same, warranties the same, but the Red is deep and to me has a better appeal than green too, not that it matters much.
Good luck, if you get this grill you will not regret it. It's also full assembled, comes packed expertly in a crate with everything styrofoamed and covered. Well done from tip to tail.

I got a chance to inspect the Kamado Joe at Costco and was very impressed. They took everything that's great about the BGE, and made improvements. The fittings are superior. The interior system is upgraded. The hinge is better. The nest is stronger. Stuff like that. But they didn't screw up anything of what is great about the Egg -- that's key.
I ended up buying from Amazon because having it delivered to my home, and the free assembly Amazon offered, was work forgoing $200 in savings from buying from Costco.
You cannot go wrong with a Big Green Egg. But you can, in my opinion, do a little better, with the Kamado Joe. If you are happy with your Egg, there is no reason to upgrade. But if you are buying your first, or need a replacement, I highly recommend the Joe.

I'm just as happy with the Joe. No problems at all, no rust (unlike my Big Green Egg). Highly recommend still.

We bought this because we wanted to do a better job of hosting summer parties in our garden. Now we can cook for 20+ at a time with much less stress, and people love the wonderful smoky flavours we produce. But we’ve discovered that this BBQ isn’t just for summer: I have no spent several Friday evenings outside with a hea torch and an umbrella: I think we may end up slow roasting the Xmas turkey too.
If you decide to treat yourself, invest in some good supporting literature. I recommend “Pitt Cue & Co”, “The Hang Fire Cookbook”, and “Berber & Q”.
Well, I have to say the Kamado Joe out ways the Egg on every level that I can think of other than a name with a longer history. The Joe's features are far superior - like the soft close hinge lid, the sealer than ages better, the built in ash tray, even the stand in come with is better and comes with shelves. I did think that quality may suffer with the lower price but please take my word for it. The Joe really is a winner!
Got this as a warehouse deal and was delighted with price.
