I gotta say, I’m not surprised a bit. I work at a place that sells gassers, traditional charcoal grills,electric smokers,pellet smokers, electric grills as well as ceramic and steel kamado’s and most folks have no interest in the kamado’s. Even when folks visit my house they always find the red twins to be a bit curious. I always get questioned about them, always explain the Swiss army type appeal...yet nobody ever goes out to buy one. Every once and a while we have a destination shopper who comes in with the specific goal of buying a kamado, but I can’t say I have ever heard of someone coming in with an open mind, browsing various types of cookers and deciding on a kamado. Truth be told, it also prob has a lot to due with the fact the sales people are not familiar with kamado’s beyond what they have heard from me.
