    The Skinny:
    Arguably the best-looking kamado around; good hinge system; dual-disc vent system means precise temperature control; versatile cooking with the flexible cooking rack and split heat deflector; great warranty.

    Things To Love:
    Kamado Joe is all about the spirit of innovation and passion for cooking outdoors, and it shows in their products. Their reputation allows customers to shop with peace of mind, knowing that the company is here to listen. For example, shortly after the Classic was introduced, customers asked the company to build one with a larger cooking surface. They listened, and the BigJoe was born. Customers asked for more versatile cooking, so they invented the "Divide and Conquer" flexible cooking rack and split deflector plate, allowing for simultaneous direct and indirect cooking, and smoking at three different levels. Kamado Joe strives for value and a reasonable price point but doesn't cut corners on quality. Their grills are visually striking, from the eye catching logo on the top vent down to the stainless steel bottom vent. The red color looks sharp, and you can choose either black or stainless steel bands, which is a nice accent. Kamado Joe's cart also has a great design and the powder-coated cast iron holds the grill securely.

    All of the uncoated metal parts on the grill are made with 304 stainless steel, and most of the other metal parts are powder-coated cast iron. The hinge assembly is well-made, and we found the Kamado Joe to have one of the easiest-lifting lids among kamado brands.

    Kamado Joe grills have two half stainless steel cooking grids that allow for cooking on different levels. We also like the top vent, which has a dial control, giving you finer control over the air flow. (Just like other kamados, you can also pivot the entire top vent to let the air flow wide open.) Another nice extra that Kamado Joe has is an included ash tool and cooking grate gripper. Most brands don’t include these accessories and the ash tool really makes cleanup a whole lot easier. One nice addition to the BigJoe series is the included firebox separator which allows you to cook on only half of the grill for smaller meals.

    Full Description

    Kamado Joe BigJoe Ceramic Grill On Cart - Red: The versatile BigJoe from Kamado Joe is a grill, smoker and oven all in one, that can be ready to cook in 15 minutes. This kamado grill is constructed from 1 1/4-inch thick ceramic that holds heat, maintains temperature and is extremely porous to keep moisture in your meat, producing incredibly juicy, tender food with a true charcoal infused flavor. With a 304 stainless steel cooking grate that measures in at 452 square inches, the BigJoe has one of the largest kamado cooking surfaces in the industry. Cook on two different levels at once using the flexible cooking system or use the included split heat deflector for indirect cooking and baking for truly versatile cooking. The split fire box allows you to create two separate heat zones or only use one side of the grill for smaller meals. Monitor the temperature with the built-in thermometer and control the airflow and temperature with the built-in draft door, which has its own ash screen, or adjust the top damper for even further temperature control. The fire grate is made of powder-coated cast iron for durability and superior heating performance, while the removable ash pan makes cleanup easy. The lid hinge is made of stainless steel and the counterbalanced design makes it easy to lift the heavy ceramic lid with the high density polyethylene (HDPE) handle. The heat-resistant ceramic coating is sure to keep your grill looking as good as it performs and the matching side shelves provide a workplace for your grilling essentials. The BJ24 BigJoe Kamado grill comes with a free grill gripper for handling hot cooking grates and an ash tool for safely and easily removing ashes.


    For the Kamado Joe warranty to apply, you must register your grill. All ceramic kamado parts are warranted to be free of defects in material and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the grill. All metal and cast iron parts are warranted for a period of five years. The thermometer and gaskets are warranted for a period of one year.

    • Q.

      could you sit this in an big tree stump that is cut out to the dimensions?

      • A.

        Good question! We not recommend doing that due to safety concerns. We recommend using this grill in one of the Kamado Joe carts/nests or built in to a non combustible island. This is directly from the Kamado Joe owner's manual: Do not remove your Kamado Joe grill from the cart or approved grill table and place it on a wooden deck, table or other surface.It can damage the surface or cause a fire.

Why did I wait this long?

Delicious. That's the kind of food my Kamado Big Joe makes. The construction is great and this thing is beefy. My brother has a Big Green Egg and this is equally the same quality of grill -- but with better included accessories. Cooking on it is simple ... and the results are stellar!

Great Kamado Great Service

The KJ Big Joe is awesome, great choice for me and my cooking style. Buying online from was awesome, prompt, fast shipment with a price match to a competing online price, and awesome after delivery service when an accessories didn't quite survive shipping... First class operation, first class service.

Best value for Kamado Grills with larger food surface

What it comes with: Divide and Conquer rack, which holds grates at two levels and diffuser at a lower level than the bottom grate. Two half-moon diffuser stones are included. Two half-moon 304 stainless cooking grates are shipped with it. The X-Rack which can hold the diffuser, or a pizza stone at a higher level than the Divide and Conquer rack places it at. Firebox divider, which splits the firebox into two separate zones for differing amounts of coals. Grate lifting tool works well at lifting hot grates. An ash scraper tool is included, but the innovative slide-out ash tray makes the scraper less critical than on most other kamado grills, which requires the scraper for removing ashes. Optional items purchased were the cast iron grate (for searing), reversible cast iron griddle and the grill extender, which provides a third level for cooking. Total grill space with all the optional grates in place exceeds 1100 square inches, which is important for people who smoke food. Overall impression, this grill is huge; the pictures do not do it justice. The 304 stainless grills are very solid with thick bars. The lid, which has an adjustable amount of lift assist, closes solidly and provides an excellent seal, with felt gasket on the top and bottom of the mating surface. Current models ship with High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) tables and handles, instead of the teak handles and tables shown. The integral removable ash tray has spark arresting plate built into it, instead of a sliding panel on the lower damper, as may be seen in some older videos. The thermometer is a highly accurate Tel-True model with a custom bezel which bears the Kamado Joe logo. The cradle appears to be cold-rolled steel which has been powder coated for corrosion resistance and arrives at a two-part assembly. There were some alignment issues mating the two parts together. One of my few gripes was the limited use of packing materials for shipping, but Shoppers Choice was excellent at shipping parts as needed within one week. Temperature control and setting is similar to most of the major brands of kamado style grills. Coal consumption is in line with other ceramic Kamado cookers as well. What makes the Big Joe such a value, is all the included items, which are typically optional on other brands, such as Primo and Big Green Egg. If you price one of these other brands with cradle, side tables, split level cooking system, diffusers, scrapers and grate lifter,; you will realize their price rockets well beyond the cost of the Big Joe. But how does it cook? In a word, great! The Divide and Conquer system provides the user the ability to adjust the "type" of heat they wish. Keep in mind with a closed lid, the temperature variation between the left and right side will be quite small, even with the firebox divider and a diffuser plate on one side. The big difference relies on one side which will have direct radiant heat from the coals, where the diffused side will only have convective heat. The diffused side will cook evenly, top and bottom from the convective heat, where as the direct radiant side will cook faster from the bottom, which is better for browning meat and getting grill lines cooked into the meat. The lifetime warranty on the ceramic parts ensures the grill will be enjoyed for years to come. I am a huge fan of the value and function this grill offers!
