Best ceramic charcoal wood grill
It is a great well made , engineered product. If you love grilling on charcoal and slow temp bbq cooking, this is the best ceramic grill you should have. You need some patience to become a master in grilling/bbq on it. However once you get a hang of it, you will gain fame of a master griller/bbq. Also it has a great following and good social media community (youtube, FB) to learn form peers and experts. Its been 3 years since I got it when I got my backyard kitchen done. I use it extensively to smoke ribs, rotisserie chicken, tandoori kebabs, salmon and steaks. My family swears never to eat any grilled meat from a restaurant anymore, because they got used to the best grilled/bbq food I cook for them on this grill.

Amazing grill and customer service
The team here at BBQ Guys is amazing. They were very helpful and most of all, patient for a first time Kamado Joe owner. I've cooked ribs, chicken, pork shoulder, and even pizzas on it so far. It is an amazing grill and I look forward to the weekend every week for another cook.

Best Grill
big joe classic --just the right size for 2-6 people Great grill especially for someone who does not like to babysit it. You must buy the Ikanmand (fan) makes a great Joe better holding the right temp When I put on the Boston butts @ 6 AM it was 40 outside by time noon hits it will be 70 --the IKamand let me go off and do other things and keep track with my phone Rotisserie is my next purchase Save on Lump Charcoal as when you are finished cooking -- close all the doors and it snuffs out the charcoal I use Coconut Charcoal for steaks --higher heat --better sear

Well worth the investmemt
I like several others commenting here, spent some considerable time and effort researching before making this investment. BGE has certainly marketed itself as the deFacto Leader in this space, don't buy in. The KJ and specifically the Big Joe is everything I was looking for in a ceramic kamado grill/smoker. It holds temps well, even for 10hr cooks, the surface space is fantastic and allows for voluminous amounts of food to be cooked at once. I did purchase an additional grate to stack on top, thereby expanding my capacity further for really big gatherings. It seasoned easily, turns shoe leather into scrumptious morsels that your guest will fight over for a second bite. I'd invite you over to try mine, but I think you should really get your own.

Had an Egg, now have a Kamado Joe
Had an Egg but it was destroyed in a wind storm. Was going to buy another Green Egg but saw the online comments about the Kamado Joe and decided to buy it instead. I bought the big one because the Egg wasn't really big enough when I had more than 8 guests dining. I really needed the extra cooking surface. The Kamado is better built and has more features. It is superior in virtually every way. The only warning I have for buyers is that the Big Joe takes a lot of charcoal to get the hot temps needed for steaks and pizza. A LOT.

Awesome grill from a great comoany
After much research, I chose the BJ. The BBQGUYS had a chipped unit at a reduced price. Although it arrived with a chipped firebox as well, KJ and the BBQGUYS excellent service replaced the box free. This has turned out to be the best purchase I ever made. Between pies, steaks, ribs, cheesecakes, you name it and I'm a popular guy at work. The grill is easy to get and keep at a constant temp. I've used KJ charcoal and think it's great as well. Little ash.

The Skinny:

  • Fastest growing name in kamado industry
  • "Divide and Conquer" cooking system
  • Wire mesh fiberglass gasket
  • Amp firebox
  • Air-lift hinge
  • Great warranty

Things We Love:

Kamado Joe is all about the spirit of innovation and passion for cooking outdoors, and it shows in their products. Kamado Joe strives for value and a reasonable price point but doesn't cut corners on quality. Their grills are visually striking, from the red color, the eye catching logo on the top vent, down to the stainless steel bottom vent. Kamado Joe grills feature a black steel band, and the freestanding models include a sturdy steel cradle and plastic side shelves that will stand up to the elements for years to come.

Kamado Joe grills are known for their "Divide and Conquer" cooking system which features split stainless steel cooking grids on a rack that allow for cooking different food at different levels, all at the same time! Another nice extra that Kamado Joe has is a set of included accessories with each grill, consisting of an ash tool, cooking grate gripper, and heat deflectors. Most brands don’t include these accessories and the ash tool and patented pull out ash drawer really make cleanup a lot easier. Ceramic heat deflectors are a must with any kamado grill and I like that they're included with every Kamado Joe grill, whereas they're an extra charge with most other brands. The new amp firebox, which comes in 6 pieces helps reduce breakage. One nice addition to the BigJoe is the firebox vertical divider which allows for increased versatility when piling your charcoal on one side of the grill only.

One of my favorite features is the air-lift hinge, which come on the Classic and BigJoe models. Kamado grills are notorious for having heavy lids, that can take some muscle to open and close. Heavy lids can also cause your ceramics to break by accidentally slamming the lid shut. Kamado Joe's air-lift hinge reduces the weight of the lid by 96%, making opening and closing your lid a breeze. The new cast aluminum kontrol tower top allows for consistent airflow, stays in position, & prevents rain from entering the grill. This takes the worry out of having to constantly adjust the airflow when you open and shut the lid.

Kamado Joe now has a durable wire mesh fiberglass gasket. This gasket offers a superior air-tight seal, and is 10x the life of normal industry gaskets. Kamado Joe has also added a new stainless steel latch that is self activating, giving it an ultra air-tight seal.

There are also many available optional accessories that increase the versatility of Kamado Joe’s grills. The chicken stand, grill expander, and pizza stone, are a few of the most popular. If you really want to get the most out of your Kamado Joe, you can’t go wrong with the Joetisserie. This rotisserie, allows you to roast a wide variety of meats while naturally basting them in their own juices.

Thing To Consider:

Kamado Joe’s bestselling size, the Classic, features a cooking grid that is only 18” in diameter, this may cause you to have to cook in batches vs all at the same time when cooking for larger groups of people. It might also present a challenge when trying to cook over-sized cuts of meat, such as a 14-15 pound brisket. These concerns are not really an issue with the BigJoe!

You'll Like This Grill If:

You want a high quality kamado style grill with more cooking versatility and easier clean up than any other round kamado on the market!

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
