Kamado Joe is one of the newest but fastest growing Kamado cookers on the market. They were started buy a couple of guys that had been cooking on BGE's for a decade and they decided to create their own Kamado. They took everything they liked about the BGE's and added to it with everything they lacked.The ClassicJoe is comparable to the Large Egg at 18" of cooking grate. They also make a BigJoe with a 24" cooking grate. There are tons of accessories that enable you to convert them from amazing grills to excellent smokers even to an awesome pizza oven. When looking at a ceramic Kamado, they can feasibly last a life time and the warranty should reflect that. Most of the cheaper imitations out there that can be found at Costco, Lowes, Bass Pro Shops, Menards ect... only come with a one year warranty on the ceramic. Kamado Joe comes with a LIFE TIME WARRANTY on the ceramic parts. That is a company that stands behind it's product.The 18" ClassicJoe without stand usually runs around $659. With a stand and flip up side tables they are around $799.I can honestly say this is the best grill/smoker I have ever owned.
