Big Joe in a BMW X3?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about making a road trip to a Costco roadshow to pick up a Kamado Joe Big Joe.


Does anyone know if it would fit in my BMW X3 for a fact?

I can't give you a definitive to your question.  I wish I could.  When I was at a roadshow the rep asked me what I was driving and said that many SUVs have problems with the vertical dimension, not width or length.  Vans, mini-vans, Rav4s and other (covered) vehicles with a low (easy to steep in) door work best.  I borrowed a Rav4 and it could carry the Big Joe in the box minus the bottom skids.  Thankfully, the Costco people talked me into un-boxing it because I wouldn't have been able to handle it at home on my own.  If there is a thread somewhere that people could use to post vehicles and results then that might be useful.


You can probably find the unboxed dimensions on this site.  Keep in mind that the original packaging has LOTS of styrofoam.  The COSTCO people will help you and chances are that they have done it many times before.  Best of luck.

The actual kamado is much smaller than the box. If taken out of the box which I had to do--it can stand up easily in most SUVs. If not it can be unpacked and laid over. You just have make sure that it all is securely secured and no rolling before driving .
