    Best Grill I've Ever Owned
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had the Kamado Joe Classic Joe Grill Series II For a little over a year now and it's the best grill I've ever owned. I only wish I had bought it years ago. My wife and I are amazed at the flavor that is imparted in the food from this cooking style and it has encouraged us to branch out and try different meals and even desserts on the grill. Highly recommend you get one!

      great all around grill/smoker combo
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] this was my first go at a charcoal grill. was a little bit of a learning curve, but once you get it boy do you get it. very efficient as far as fuel consumption. does great for smoking pork butts, brisket etc at low and slow. does great at hot and fast for grilling burgers. add a pizza stone and turns out great pizzas without having to. it a separate pizza oven. add a joetisserie and does great wings in a basket and even great al pastor. great all around grill/smoker that can do many things well.

        Works as advertised
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Can't really be too critical about The Classic Joe Series II. While cooks are a process, as they are with any Kamado style grill, the grill accessories and features are best in business. Can't be any happier with the product.

          Awesome - the only grill to get
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I originally bought a pellet grill and hated that I couldn’t sear anything. I changed to the KJ and absolutely love it - it can do everything!

            The Best Kamado Grill Out There!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve had my Big Joe for nearly 10 years now. It’s been a rock solid addition to my grilling setup. It dies everything-high temp searing to low and slow smoking. The best!

                Oldie But a Goodie
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love my Joe it is fearless and strong The only issue is that the heat deflectors fail frequently and the seal requires re-adhesion, but something that falls under maintenance so understood.

                  I'm in Love
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have studied and researched every Kamado out there for the past 8 years. I have a pellet smoker as well as a gravity smoker/grill. I was hesitant to lose that digital control. I thought it would be too much work and too unpredictable. I was so wrong. I love my Kamado Big Joe. It does it all and it does it better. No more replacing circuit boards or other small moving parts to keep my smoker/grill running. No more fighting to maintian temp during cold weather smoking and grilling. Once you get that temp dialed in my Big Joe holds it for hours and hours. I will never go back to anything that requires a power cord. Kamado Joe has me for life

                    Awesome unit
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had one for years and would not change for anything. Everyone is going to the pellet "grills" but Kamado is the way to go

                      LIke an outdoor oven!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Kamaod Joe grills are great for outdoor cooking. You can "season" your food with a little smoke, cook low and slow for hours, sear and bake. Want to cook breakfast? No problem.. just throw on a cast iron griddle flat side up and your read to cook. I really enjoy outdoor cooking and just hanging out while cookiing. Fantastic products!

                        Kamado Joe Grilling
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had my Kamado Joe for over a year now and just love cooking on it. The meat is tender, juicy and delicious! I would recommend this grill to anybody that wants the best tasting meat!

                          Classic Joe(R) Review
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve owned a Kamado Joe Grill for over 3 years now and it is simply my favorite way to cook. Its remarkably versatility, efficiency, and has exceptional heat retention. The Kamado Joe offers a unique cooking experience, enabling me to grill, smoke, bake, and roast with remarkable precision. The divided ceramic diffusion plates allows for different heat zones within the grill. This system enhances the grill's versatility, enabling me to cook different foods at various temperatures simultaneously. The multi-panel firebox reduces the risk of breakage and allows me to use it for use all year round, and even in the harshest conditions. And the top and bottom vent control system allows precise airflow and simplifies temperature control. Whether I'm smoking brisket at low temperatures for hours or searing steaks over high heat, the grill excels in delivering extremely consistent results.

                            WOW this grill changed my life
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I upgraded from and electric smoker to the Kamado Joe and I will never go back. This is not just a smoker, it is a complete kitchen. I have smoked, grilled and baked in it with great results. The fit and finish far exceeds the competition.

                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love my Kamado Joe. It maintains a great temperature throughout its surface area. It's easy to clean and my favorite grill!

                                Only one regret
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I only regret not getting the series 3. I have had a kamado joe 2 for three years now and use it close to three times a week. I've always enjoyed grilling but the Joe turned that into a love. I've used the warnty a few times. The process was easy and fast even though I moved to a different state.

                                    Better than I imagined!
                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have dreamed of owning one of these for years, my old grill failed last year, and my family gifted me the Classic II for Christmas this year. I cannot tell you how much I like this grill. The quality of the build is so far above what I have been using that I could not imagine it being made so well. I have been so impressed... my charcoal use has actually gone down, this thing is so efficient on fuel. I have already purchased additional accessories and although I have made some cooks already I have yet to fully explore the possibilities! The slow roller accessory really seems to impart a deeper, cleaner smoke finish to my cooks and the heavy charcoal basket is built like a tank! My old basket is wire mesh by comparison. Overall, I am very pleased with my new Joe and look forward to decades of fine eats produced by this very well made cooking machine!

                                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Success on my first Pork Chop, Chicken & steaks. I studied YouTube. Leaned how to start fire, place hand on outside shell for temperature control, used a meat thermometer with lid shut. Great product.

                                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this grill. From smoking meats to cooking pizza it does it all. Tried my brothers Treager and prefer the meat tenderness and favor from my Kamado Joe II

                                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received the Classic II as a gift and all I can say is WOW. I average 4-5 cooks per week. It awesome. You can cook any way on it, smoke, sear or just simply grill. Any meat, any seafood, any vegetable. It does I average

                                            Awesome grill / smoker
                                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Had the classic 2 before i moved. Learned how to smoke briskets, pork and beef ribs. Used it to make satay and grilled fish. Everything always turn out very delicious. Made new friends and existing friends closer. Everyone loved how all the food turned out. Cleaning was a breeze. Was very durable. Unfortunately it is very heavy. I miss my kamado :(

                                                Sweet Kamado Grill
                                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently purchased a Classic II. If I am being honest, the air lift hinge is what sold me. It is fantastic! Don’t even think about buying a different brand of a Kamado Grill. I have a different brand Kamado Grill that I am getting rid of because of the weight of the lid. I’m so happy to have a Kamado Joe with the air lift hinge. You will never have to worry about the lid ever coming down unexpectedly. Trust me, I know! Enough about that story. In addition to the air lift hinge, you have an awesome selection of “nice to have” options available. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!!!

                                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve had my big Joe for a couple years. When I moved house it came- it’s a pig to move but every smoke makes it worth it. I’ve done pig butts and ribs. Cow ribs. Burgers galore. Paella. And then the rotisserie is a whole other ballgame. Quality materials. It just keeps on grilling.

                                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Kamado Joe is hands down the best grill/smoker I’ve ever used. The versatility of this grill is unmatched. I’ve smoked everything from cheesesto briskets with excellent outcomes.

It cooks everything perfectly and evenly. Only downside is that it wasn’t delivered to the patio where it was going to be used and it is HEAVY! Also sometimes my husband gets stuck cooking in the dark and it would be great if there was some sort of grill light. These things are minor though given the quality of the grill and final product it can create!

Great as a smoker and for hot and fast cooks. Another advantage over gas or pellet grills is that the KJ self-cleans.
