Buying a Grill Just Got Easy!!
So firstly, let’s discuss the two big players - the legendary (medium) Big Green Egg and Classy Kamado Joe Classic II.
The Big Green Egg has been around for quite a long time – about 30 years to be precise; and yet remains one of the reliable and popular grills of our time. Also, being one of the easiest to operate with its simplicity and versatility, you can cook anything from steaks, cakes to other delicacies. The shell setup brings out some of the best flavours and rich textures while being easy to clean and maintain. Owing to its popularity, you are sure to find a Big Green Egg for sale at a BBQ store near you.
The Kamado Joe Classic II is one of the latest and most innovative grills in the market, fast growing in popularity thanks to its excellent craftsmanship and advanced features.
Let’s discuss the similarities first as these are features you are guaranteed no matter which one you buy.
Both the legendary Green Egg and Classic Kamado Joe assure you a wonderful cooking environment without cutting corners when it comes to construction and material quality. The large charcoal grillcan bake, grill, barbeque and provide a smoking-hot, evenly cooked food. With their excellent heat preservation and distribution, either one could be easily called the best BBQ grill around.
They have inbuilt thermometers on top of the upper lid reading up to a temp of 400°C.
Both the grills are made of high-grade ceramic and have a glazed outer finish, and come with a lifetime warranty. The ceramic walls provide accurate temperature control allowing you to achieve best results even in spotty weathers.
1. Unboxing& Setting Up
The Kamado Joe Classic II comes with all the required set of accessories that you could ask for – trays, cart, shelves, heat deflectors, grill gate gripper and ash tool, etc. So, there is no need for additional cost or time to be spent looking to buy other accessories. Also, the average assembly of the grill clocks out at 20-25 minutes.
2. Lid Mechanism
One of the most innovative features of the Classic Kamado Joe is its lift mechanism: an airlift that produces excellent counterweight mechanism. You can easily lift the lid with a single hand, or even a single finger as the airlift reduces the weight of the lid by 90 percent. Also, when left open midway, the lid doesn’t come crashing down but stays in its position.
3. Lid Lining
When discussing the topic of the lid, the Kamado grill is equipped with a lock system and also lined with oven-grade wired mesh gasket, promising you a good sealed environment. It has a neat finish with both the lids perfectly lined with each other while closing.
4. Grill Options and Plate Setter
The Kamado BBQ grill has two half-moon grill sections that could be set at two different levels i.e. at one end, you could be cooking your steak at a higher temperature whereas,on the other end, you could be roasting your capsicums and tomatoes at a slightly lower temperature. Two hot dishes at the same time can save you a lot of time. The accompanied heat deflectors allow you to place water pan below the grills if you want an indirect heating setup. The plate setter could also be set for cooking pizza. With Kamado Joe, there is promised innovation!
5. Top Air Vent
The Kamado Joe has an aluminium air vent on the top which won’t be faltered by exposure to rain or rust. You can control the temperature by regulating air flow where you can also pivot itoff to the side to allow for more heat to escape. You can easily remove the chimneypieces by hand and clean it.
6. Bottom Draft Cleaning
Another innovative and a patented feature of the Kamado Joe is the stainless-steel bottom ash-drawer that sits on the bottom draft. You simply need to pull it out and throw out the ash and dust remains.Talk about easy and convenient cleaning!
7. Underlying Stand or Rack
The Kamado Joe has a welded stand offering great grip and stability; no chance of your wonderful food toppling over. Though the wheels of the stand are quite small, they are gripped with metallic locks.
The Kamado Joe comes in a fiery fire truck red colour. The handles and side shelves are made of sturdy and durable plastic coming in a shade of black.
There are those who swear by their Big Green Egg grills and wouldn’t trade it for anything else, while others who’ve tried the Kamado Joe Classic II appreciate for its fit, finish and thoughtful features which they say makes grilling easy and fun.
