Why is it so good?

  • Thick ceramic body of the barbecue is an insulator - meaning the barbecue holds its heat better and uses less fuel
  • Tight-fitting lid and felt gaskets means almost no heat escapes around the lid
  • Combination of insulation and tight seals make temperature control incredibly easy - just adjust air flow with the vents to raise or lower the temperature
  • Very quick and easy to light; once lit the barbecue can burn with minimal supervision for over 12 hours on a single batch of fuel - perfect for long, low and slow cooks
  • Better fuel efficiency means less draught through the barbecue, making for less drying out of meat - food cooked on the Kamado Joe is juicier
  • Kamado Joe's build quality and warranty service is second to none

What's so great about Kamado Joe Barbecues?

These are one of the most effective outdoor cooking tools - and one of the easiest to use. Made of clay, they have a high thermal mass which means they maintain a very even temperature. Their airtight seals and precise vents mean that you can control temperature very easily. And they are among the most fuel-efficient barbecues we have found: we have cooked for over 12 hours on a single batch of coal.

All this makes them fantastic for long low-and-slow cooking (did someone say brisket? Or pork shoulder?!), as well as fast grilling.
