    Full Description

    Kamado Joe Classic Ceramic Grill On Cart - Red: The versatile Classic from Kamado Joe is a grill, smoker and oven all in one, that can be ready to cook in 15 minutes. This kamado grill is constructed from 1 1/4-inch thick ceramic that holds heat, maintains temperature and is extremely porous to keep moisture in your meat, producing incredibly juicy, tender food with a true charcoal infused flavor. Cook for the whole family on the 304 stainless steel cooking grate that measures in at 254 square inches. Cook on two different levels at once using the Divide and Conquer Flexible Cooking System or use the included heat deflector for indirect cooking and baking for truly versatile cooking. Monitor the temperature with the built-in thermometer and control the airflow and temperature with the built-in draft door, which has its own ash screen, or adjust the top damper for even further temperature control. The fire grate is made of powder-coated cast iron for durability and superior heating performance, while the removable ash pan makes cleanup easy. The lid hinge is made of stainless steel and the counterbalanced design makes it easy to lift the heavy ceramic lid with the high density polyethylene (HDPE) handle. The heat-resistant ceramic coating is sure to keep your grill looking as good as it performs and the matching side shelves provide a workplace for your grilling essentials. The KJ23 Classic Kamado grill comes with a free grill gripper for handling hot cooking grates and an ash tool for safely and easily removing ashes.


    For the Kamado Joe warranty to apply, you must register your grill. All ceramic kamado parts are warranted to be free of defects in material and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the grill. All metal and cast iron parts are warranted for a period of five years. The thermometer and gaskets are warranted for a period of one year.

    • Q.

      could you sit this in an big tree stump that is cut out to the dimensions?

      • A.

        Good question! We not recommend doing that due to safety concerns. We recommend using this grill in one of the Kamado Joe carts/nests or built in to a non combustible island. This is directly from the Kamado Joe owner's manual: Do not remove your Kamado Joe grill from the cart or approved grill table and place it on a wooden deck, table or other surface.It can damage the surface or cause a fire.

    • Q.

      Can wood chips be used to flavor the smoke or only charcoal?

      • A.

        You can absolutely use wood chips or wood chunks to add smoke and flavor on this grill. Reply

    • Q.

      Is the Kamado Joe fully assembled when shipped, except for the nest?

      • A.

        While most of the grill is fully assembled, there are a few pieces to assemble. You will need to attach the two pieces that make up the cart together. Once they are together, then place the grill into the cart (I recommend two people due to the weight). Then open the grill and place the firebox inside, aligning it with the opening in the bottom vent. This will allow for good airflow. Next place the cast iron grate in the bottom of the firebox, and place the fire ring on top of the fire box with the "notches up". After that, place the cooking grate inside the grill and attach the side shelves (please note, the stainless bands grill does not include side shelves). Reply

    • Q.

      How large of a turkey, boston pork butt, and brisket can the Kamado Joe Classic accomodate?

      • A.

        The grill has an 18" diameter grate which can definitely hold a standard size turkey, pork butt, or brisket. The grill has plenty of overhead clearance for cooking a larger turkey. Brisket is the longer piece of meat, so it is best to make sure you have at least 1-inch of clearance around the edges of the meat on the grates. Reply

Great Grill Great Value

I spent lots of time shopping and reading reviews. Kamado Joe is the best combination of quality, features, value and warranty available. Big Green Egg is a fine product but Kamado Joe is every bit as good, if not better, with superior cooking and ash removal systems at a significantly lower price. Everything you need to start grilling is included in the price of the KJ. With the BGE you get the grill. That is it. The cart, side tables, ash tool, plate setter and heat defuser are extra $. It turns out incredible food. Buy it! You won't regret it!


I love this grill because it is of the highest quality materials, a great design (they've thought the whole thing through). The temperature is easily controlled and can be maintained. The accessories are super configurable.

So nice...great looking and works wonderful!

Got it set up in a matter of minutes, started cooking within an hour, never had anything so tasty! Some folks may need to google a video of the assembly, but not hard to figure out.
