I just got this weeks Menards sale flyer by email, the Big Red is on sale for $248. I fixed the ash pan seal problem by glueing some 5/8 stove door tape, not rope, around the top edge. Now it seals correctly. It was a design defect, the fire box was pop riveted through the gasket so there was no way it could seal, the rivet heads kept a gap open.

I was in Menards the other day and they also have an Avocado Kamado Cooker. It's ceramic and more of an olive drab than green. The dome is not as tall and it's much thinner ceramic.

The Avacado is $289 after rebate and has been for the last couple of weeks. I started with the Big Red Kamado Cooker, I added a felt type gasket at the ashpan and lid and still can not get low temps so I bought the Avacado. The stand is terrible, otherwise it seems like a bargain for under $300.

Bought one this spring. I had a char-griller with an offset firebox for six years previous. I love my big red. It can't grill as much, but I can light it up, get it at 250 and cook for ten hours without having to add fuel. I can control temp anywhere from 200 to 650 without much fuss. Everything I cook on it comes out professional.
