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 wood-fired 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 two split heat deflectors for indirect cooking and baking for truly versatile cooking. The patented Kontrol Tower top vent maintains a consistent air setting for precise temperature management, and it will not slip out of position as the lid is opened. The top vent is constructed with cast aluminum for superior resistance to rust. The dome lid and base feature a double thick, wire mesh fiberglass gasket which offers a superior air-tight seal and long lasting performance. The stainless steel lid latch self activates when you close the lid, ensuring heat does not leak through the seal. The fire grate is made of powder-coated cast iron for durability and superior heating performance, while the patented slide-out ash drawer makes cleanup easy. The air lift hinge reduces the dome weight by 96%, making it easy to lift the heavy ceramic lid with the high density polyethylene (HDPE) handle. The lid will also stay open at any desired position, allowing you to cook with the lid partially open if you choose to. 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, an ash tool for safely and easily removing ashes, a flexible cooking rack, an accessory rack, and a heat deflector.

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!

Will this bbq have to be shipped via 18 wheeler because i have had issues in the past getting deliveries from large trucks on my block.

Hey Adam! We have a guide for the freight delivery process. I will attach the link for you, as it should help you out. www.bbqguys.com/freight-delivery
If you have a Classic II, is it possible to purchase and install the Slo smoke roller insert separately? Or, do you have to but the more expensive model to get that feature?
Was This Helpful?
Hi Walt. The SlōRoller is sold with the Kamado Joe Classic III, it's not available for sale separately.
Can the freestanding Joe be converted to a freestanding grill later by adding the three feet or do you have to purchase the stand alone model if you want a stand alone grill later on?
Was This Helpful?
Hello. If you use the kamado feet, you can remove the grill from its cart and convert it into a Stand-Alone.
Will the joe classic handle 2 pork butts at a time about 7lbs each? How many beef /pork ribs can fit on the joe classic
Was This Helpful?
Great question! You should be able fit both pork butts without any issue at one time. As far as ribs go, you may be able to fit 3 racks of St. Louis style pork ribs cut in half at a time, but it would be tight. If you do plan on putting ribs on the Classic II, you may want to consider getting a rib rack, that way you ribs sit on their sides and can be placed closer together. Here's a link to the Kamado Joe rib rack: www.bbqguys.com/kamado-joe/rib-rack
What comes with the classic 2 Joe? Do i need charcoal?
Was This Helpful?
Great question! The grill comes with everything you need to cook except for charcoal!
Can a Turkey be smoked on this Kamado Joe and if so how large and what accessories are required?
Was This Helpful?
Hi, Beth! A 10-12 lb turkey would work on this grill with no accessories needed, just a good recipe!
