Best design our there for small Kamado
I own one for 4 years now, and it's ideal. For Dutch standards it easily serves four. The dimensions are so smart. Whole chicken: fits. Two sizeable sea breams: fits. It's just the larger rib racks that need to be portioned and smoked sideways. The frame puts it high enough to operate by slightly bending over, and since mine is placed on a roof terrace accessed via a hatch, it's also low enough to be operated from within the hatch (half open) on a rainy low&slow cook. Light enough to be hoisted up 5 stairs. Heats up in no time. The only feature caveat is the absence of a weather proof vent. But I fixed that with a improv add on from the local hardware store. Recommended it to a colleague who then fell in love with the Classic II instead :-)

    Beyond amazing.
    Bought one of the JRs to put on a balcony since we have all of the bigger grills on the deck. Well, it’s the best grill you will ever have. Hands down. In fact, I immediately bought another one for the balcony to use for pizza and tailgate parties. . My next house I will absolutely get the biggest one they make. . The pizza iis freakin amazing. Had many many grills over the years and nothing compare to this one.

    Perfect for our needs
    I’ve had it a few weeks now, done several cooks, and love it so far. It’s a perfect size for the the two of us. It holds temperature very well and everything I’ve cooked on it has tasted great. It’s light enough for one or two people to move easily, but added a Grilla Cart, (it fit perfectly) which gets it up a bit higher. Highly recommended.

    First time Kamado Owner.
    I was very excited to receive my Kamado. I have always owned a charcoal grill but never this style. I thought it was a good price point to start my Kamado Journey. The first cook was some thick center cut chops done on direct. Amazing cook and flavor from the lump charcoal. I then moved onto a Whole chicken on indirect and it was amazing again. I have done Lamb Steaks, Burgers and steaks. I have not ventured into smoking yet but can't wait to try. It takes a short learning curve to get the charcoal lit properly and adjust the temperature but I am very happy so far. My next experiment will be Pizza , just waiting for my stone.

    A Great Cooker in A Small Package
    First cook was for Xmas Eve, smoked turkey breast, turned out great! Even used the box it came in as a temporary table. Looking forward to more cooks! Great size for the two of us.

    I have owned the large Big Green Egg for 8 plus years and now I own the large Joe as well. The green egg hands down is a awesome cooker! For me, I think the Joe is as good if not better of a cooker. Way more accessories you get for a lot less money. Looks much nicer too. With the egg you have to buy everything separate! If you are in the market for a ceramic cooker I would buy this over the egg hands down and I own both!

    The Best Christmas Gift Ever.
    Fantastic product. Easy to assemble and cooking/smoking is awesome. Got this for my fiancé as a Christmas present, he stated this is the best Christmas gift he has ever gotten since that one Christmas when he was 10 and got a Nintendo... lol! He now smokes everything. No complaints here!

    Fantastic Kamado! Everything you need to get started. Maintains temp like a champ! I would recommend shipping if buying from home depot. They dos not say it was crated and it just barely fit into my tahoe using a forklift. Getting it out, I had to break down the pallet inside the truck. Definitely a two man job unloading.

    Hands down the best charcoal grill on the market. Fully loaded with accessories and ready too use after very basic assembly that took less than 20 minutes and only requires a Phillip's screwdriver and a helper. A helper is a must as this grill has a shipping weight of 270 pounds and is over 150 pounds when empty. Once assembled it easy to move on the very sturdy stand and stays in place with excellent locking casters. While this is the basic "Classic I" model it is loaded with upgraded features found on the higher priced units. Mine came with the updated AMP firebox and the aluminum side shelves. Knowing that the biggest consumer complaint with the Classic I is the top vent, I added an aftermarket vent to mine. Within 30 minutes of delivery I was up and running and grilling steaks on a 775 degree fire 20 minutes later! If you're on the fence about a Kamado grill like I was, don't hesitate to grab one of these, you won't regret it.

      It's just fun
      I was already a charcoal guy and had enjoyed my Weber Kettle for about ten years when I decided to move to the Joe. I enjoy every minute of it. I've had it for about six weeks and have tried about everything but pizza. Smoking, roasting, searing, baking bread... as a newbie I've had to ease into hitting the right temps but the outcomes have been great. The build is excellent and the only complaint I have there is that the hinge spring seems to need adjusting frequently to make sure the lid stays where it's supposed to. The ash tray works perfectly and regulating temps is made easier with the top markings. I recommend getting a remote thermometer. It doesn't need to be fancy but it does keep you from having to lift the lid.

      I love my new classic. It does replace a classic that I bought about 13 years ago. This one is a much better quality and comes with more valuable accessories. I have been very pleased and love trying the new accessories. Thank you for such a great quality product!

        Amazing quality
        As soon as I unpackaged my Kamado Joe II Classic I realized how well made it is and how much quality all the pieces have. I am extremely happy with the product and I finally have a grill where I can maintain temperatures for long periods of time constant without having to worry about it. I trust this product and I believe it to be the best grilling solution out there for everyone that loves bbq.

          From Novice to Pro!
          I got my Big Joe for Christmas in 2018 and throughout 2019 I made it my mission to learn how to use it effectively. I must say, today I am producing brisket, pastrami, ribs, pulled pork, chicken, and pizza that blow people away and rival many restaurants. I continue to marvel at how my Big Joe allows me to create such amazing meals. I love the Kamado Joe Big Lump charcoal as well.

                Best grill In the world
                I’ve had my Kamado Joe Classic for years. I used to have four grills; gas, charcoal, a small and a large smoker. My wife was hesitant to let my buy my Joe because I already had so many. After the first cook, she said “Ok, I’m glad I let you buy that”. After cooking in the Joe for a while, I got rid of all the other grills. There was no need for me to keep them since the Joe does it all. I don’t even have to bake in the house anymore. No matter what’s cooked on it, it’s amazing!! P.S. Love John Setzler and the Kamado Joe Cooking channel.

                  Awesome Smoker/BBQ
                  I was initially reluctant to purchase the Kamado as the price point was pretty steep. However, my father in law convinced me as he was getting one too. End result, I’m very happy that we have this now. It’s very versatile and a sturdy product. I also like how many things you can do with this grill. I can’t wait to try all the things that are available. We have purchased the pizza stone so I’m excited to try that out. There are however a few things that could be a little better. I’m typically used to a larger cooking area, and with a circle there’s some space that’s missing. We have the middle size so there’s a good amount of space. The other thing is that it is pretty heavy but being a ceramic piece that’s understandable. Overall I would absolutely recommend this grill to friends/family. In fact last week I had a friend call me regarding the Kamado snd he was pretty sold on it. Thanks for a great durable product. Overall I would recommend this

                    all i've got is this the best grill i ever cooked on, and I've tried a few, the way this big guy keeps the temperature is unbelievable, outdoor cooking turned into a hobby and cooking on big joe is just a pleasure. low and slow, searing steaks, even pizzas, does everything incredibly well. add that beautiful charcoal flavor to anything you cook. I think you can tell how happy i am with my bigJoe : ) Happy cooking

                      Kamado Big Joe never disappoints
                      I did a lot of research on Kamado grills before making the decision on Kamado Joe and more specifically the BIG JOE! I have not been disappointed. I love the many options for add-ones you can get. The cooking space is amazing what you can fit on the standard grill surface. The flexible level cooking with the deflector plates makes great searing side and a deflected roasting area. I could keep going about why I love the Big Joe, it has make a great addition to the backyard.

                        I bought my Big Joe several years ago and built it into a cooking island shortly there after. All because of how versatile and fantastic it is. I even have a mini now for when its just my wife and I.
