How do you compare Kamado Grills

Robert Foster, who started Bad Boy Mowers in his garage in 1998, a company that has grown to a multi-million dollar manufacturer of mowers (www.BadBowmowers.com) and a leader in that industry today, loves to cook.  He purchased both a large and an extra large BGE and started grilling.  Being impressed with the outcome he started looking a possible ways to improve it.  The Gourmet Guru Grill was the result.  You can visit www.gourmetgurugrill.com and see featured improvements on the GGG.

Handles molded into the body of the grill provide ease of movement.  A heavy duty closure assembly is a plus.  It also features a hinged grate/mesh to allow adding wood chips when doing prolonged grilling on items like Pork Butts, large roasts or hams.

 

The GGG has been two years in the launching and is here for the long haul.  Robert and Becky Foster now own Intimidator UTV, Bad Dawg Accessories, and GGG.  They are also manufacturing UTV's for Mahindra Tractor.  GGG is just this year actually making an aggressive move toward the market place and there are other products in the planning stages.

 

The box weight of the GGG (packed for shipping) is 174 pounds.  The weight of a kamado can help you determine the density of the ceramic.  Ceramic holds the secret of kamado cooking.  Grills that have the shape of a kamado but without the ceramic will not produce the same results as ceramic. GGG is 100% ceramic.  All bands are coated to resist rust.  The grill mesh is stainless.

 

Also, as you look at construction how do the various parts compare. Are the parts made of aluminum alloy or steel.  Some kamado manufacturers have looked for ways to cut expenses and went to the market place to compete price wise.  The GGG is not in the market place to be a "cheaper" grill (however the price is very competitive), but to offer the very best grill at a fair price.  The GGG price is based on fair business costs and pricing to make our business partners a fair profit.  We believe in Free Enterprise!  

 

GGG offers the same or a better gurantee of any kamado grill manufacturer in the market place.  It is a "limited lifetime warranty."  Limited because it does not cover abuses that might occur that would cause breakage or damage to the grill or it's components.  GGG will replace any defective part or any part that breaks under normal use.  

 

The GGG cooking surface is 17 inches in diameter.  You can put three Boston Butts on it at a time.

 

GGG is new but those of us working with this project or sincerely wanting to answer any questions and we welcome your comments.

 

We are glad to partner with Eatcities.com and EatJackson.com along with others to get the word out on the Gourmet Guru Grill.  And, yes we are looking for more dealers.

Looks like a decent alternative.  Any Canadian distribution in the works?

I suspect this claim would be very difficult to back up...some of my best results have come off my Keg.  To be honest, I find very little difference between the two.

Cough BS cough

I have to agree with you on the Coughing. I have no shame in my game cooking on an insulated steel kamado.

I understand ceramic makes things easier but if you know what your doing the results are the same.
