There is a learning curve, as it's certainly a different animal than most grills/smokers/BBQ's, but the quality of the meat that comes off is impressive once you get past it.


The low and slow was really easy to get down. The high heat is what has caused me the most problems. It's quite incredible how juicy most everything comes off the egg.
Thanks!

My buddy has a BGE, and says that he can go from low and slow to a blistering 700F in minutes, but it apparently does not work nearly as well in reverse. Definitely a learning curve there. I'm amazed at how efficient my little cast iron kamado is.

Sure that isn't a charred stump from a forest fire?

Re-did the gasket on my BGE and then moved a week later so I haven't lit it up in a while; but, will have to press it into service this week. Brisket sounds tasty if I can find one.

I think my next grill is going to be a black olive. It is a combination of kamado grill and pellet grill. About the same price as one of the higher end pellet grills.

My kamado hobby is branching into brewing... Hope to serve them up side by side.

I have a Kamado Joe. I love it. My previous smoker was a UDS I built. It worked just fine, but I wanted something nicer that I could use in the inter as well. Thea heat got sapped from the UDS really quickly in MN winters. Funny how -20 will make your smoker cold. It will probably do the same to the Kamado, hopefully not as extreme.

I love making pork butts in it. Pulled pork is my favorite bbq. Steaks are easy to make on it to. Simple to get them to the proper doneness as well.

Thanksgiving is going on there tomorrow. Smoked turkey breast. mmmmmmmm

Since I am already committed to a turkey dinner tomorrow I am smoking one on friday/sat. I just had a thought though. Has anyone tried smoking the dressing (stuffing)?
