Let me start by saying I also own a Big Green Egg large. I bought this item from my dad for Father’s Day.

If you are comparing this to the Egg, deciding between the two, I would recommend this unit over the Egg. It has everything you need included to get started. The Egg is a great grill, virtually unchanged in 20 years, and practicing the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” principle. And of course, they have owned the market for some time. However, what this creates is an incentive for competitors to innovate in order to cut into that market. The Kamado Joe Classic II could not be a better representation of that principle. The lid assist mechanism literally makes open the grill a two finger job, and the lid “stays” wherever you let it go, not slamming down unless it’s fully articulated like the egg. The removable ash tray is great, the side tables are more than suitable, and the aluminum rain/vent cap along with all stainless hardware gives you the confidence that this grill will last! The divide and conquer grill system is awesome, but as some may know, since this grill shares the same dimensions as the BGE large, you can purchase this system and use it on the Egg as well.

If I were buying my personal grill for the first time today, it would be the Kamado Joe like I got my father. I have nothing against the Egg, it has dominated the market for a long time and has made kamado grilling what it is today. But this unit is just far better thought out, I really can’t find a place with the Egg outshines it. The dimensions are the same, warranties the same, but the Red is deep and to me has a better appeal than green too, not that it matters much.

Good luck, if you get this grill you will not regret it. It’s also full assembled, comes packed expertly in a crate with everything styrofoamed and covered. Well done from tip to tail.

We love the grill so far.
However the ceramic inserts came with chipped edges out of the package. For a product this expensive I expect any damaged parts to be replaced.
I sent pictures of the damaged parts to Kamado Joe the same day we received the grill. We have been ignored for weeks now.
Due to this I can’t recommend this brand. I would tell prospective buyers to go with the green competitor instead.
The performance of the green egg seems to be equal for about he same price. If they don’t ignore their customers, they might have an edge.
Thanks for nothing Kamado Joe customer service!

Customer Questions & Answers


Is there an affortable table to put the kamota jr on?
Answer: To low, so I got a small outdoor round table from Amazon,I think it’s 30″ pine. if you like it higher use concrete blocks, it’s small but for me & my wife, it’s perfect. Jeff

Why did the grill arrive with no carts? I am stuck with a non functioning grill that cost me close to 2k dollars.
Answer: Call Kamado Joe and they will fix your issue

When Will I be billed for this item, before shipping or once shipped
Answer: I was billed once shipped which was a few days after ordering
