  1. Not necessarily related to the Kamado, but I see Walmart has marked down the Hamilton Beach 3.5-Quart Stand Mixer ($65 for Black, $66 for Red). As far as I can tell, it is not a 'cyber week' deal, but I could be wrong about that. I read some reviews and the consensus is, it's a good budget stand mixer, especially at those prices.
