I have no idea how I'm just discovering this site, this is awesome!

 

I'm in the market for a new Kamado.  I've narrowed it down to the Big Joe and a Summit Charcoal.  I'm leaning heavy towards the Big Joe, but am curious to know how deep the discount is at Costco.....  The roadshow schedule isn't coming to B'ham in the near future, but I'm willing to drive over to ATL.  Question:  For those what are near a costco, what are the current prices for the grills?  

Also, I read on kamadojoe.com that the warranty is not honored when purchased from a store like Costco.  I realize Costco might pick up the warranty, but wanted to verify other's experience.  

I appreciate the advice and look forward to the future discussions.

The next closest show to you will be in the Brookhaven warehouse, north of Atlanta, Feb 23 - March 4.

thanks for the reply, but am curious if anyone remembers the pricing at the roadshows?  I've got a price locally with free delivery, but needed to know if it's worth my time to drive to ATL.

Road show Joes come with a full warranty. I do not remember the prices off the top of my head. 

Thanks, this checks one of my concerns off the list.

Dude, don’t know if this is current. If not check the Costco website. Iirc the classic II was going for like $980 or something like that.  Only way to beat that is the roadshow demo deal...now that is like a felony larceny without the jail time if you can score it...get in early

Yes.  I've seen the schedule, what I'm trying to figure out is price for the grills.  I agree, $980 is a good price for the regular Joe.

In December the Classic II sold for $969. Big Joe for $1299. Both included a cover and a box of fire starters. I would expect 2018 pricing to be the same.

Thank you LargeRed Joe, this is what I was needing.  Looks like I'll be traveling to Georgia at the end of February.  That price is a a $500 swing compared to local pricing or anything I've seen online.  The big joe is selling around $1700-1850 around here....

Ask if they will price match Costco.  When I was going to buy one I called the local place and they said they would price match but of course, they were out of stock so off I went to Costco.  Worth a shot anyway.

Well to further complicate things, I got a great price on a Weber Summit today. $1350 for the standalone unit ($1799 for table version).....Hard decision now.  Both are great grills, just gotta make a call I suppose.

      Hi all
       
      After a very long time of reading reviews, comparing prices, and saving money, I've finally bought a KJ Classic (see picture).
      I am based in Switzerland, where upper grade meat cuts are very expensive, so I'd love to learn more about cooking cheaper cuts of meat. 
      Here's a random selection of thoughts I have so far:
       
      1. Some of my favourite meals ever included hot smoked razor clams and octopus. Would anyone have an idea where I could find more info on this forum about this?
      2. I do have some very specific questions, e.g.: when cooking burgers on a cast iron griddle, does the fire provide a significant amount of taste, as compared to a stovetop? How should I go about finding more information? Is it ok to start a new threat and ask directly?
       
      Looking forward to learning from this community

      This is the second year we have done beef wellington for Christmas Eve dinner. Not going to lie, this dish takes a lot of prep work.
       
      This year I decided to do everything but the puff pastry the night before. Prepped the mushroom duxelles and sauted it until completely dry. Shingled prosciutto and spread a thin layer of the mushroom duxelles over it. Quickly seared the center cut of a prime beef tenderloin and brushed it with dijon mustard. Used Oak Ridge BBQ’s Carne Crusta Steakhouse & Santa Maria rubs. Then wrapped it in the prosciutto/duxelles layer and put it in the fridge overnight. On Christmas Eve I wrapped it in a puff pastry and topped it with another layer of latticed pastry. Cooked on the Kamado Joe at +/- 400 degrees. Pulled the beef wellington when the internal temperature reached 127 degrees. Served it with salad, baked potatoes and a red wine reduction. I forgot got to get a picture while it was on the grill, and the money shot didn’t have the best lighting, but it was a perfect medium rare in the center. The wife and in-laws loved it and that’s what Christmas is all about!

      Hi everyone, I’m a bit obsessed with pizza’s so I’ve been knocking a few pizza dough recipes out. There are so many great doughs that I just want to share them. If you like pizza’s, it’s worth a watch. Cheers.

      Hi all,
       
      I will be firing up my big joe for the first time tomorrow for some baby back ribs.
       
      I have done ribs before on my Bradley smoker & weber gaser using the 3-2-0.5 (3 hours on the smoker, 2 hours wrapped on the Weber and 0.5 hours with sauce). I do the last two steps on the weber just because the ribs are more accessible for wrapping and sauce. Family usually loves these.
       
      Ribs on the Joe:
       
      I am planning on dry rub, no sugar ~5 hours @ 225-250 with no wrap, occasional spritzing and add sauce for last 30 minutes or so.
       
      Questions:
      1- Is a drop pan necessary? Dry or with liquid in it? Based on my reading so far, I think not necessary other than to keep the heat deflector clean... opinions?
      2- To wrap or not to wrap? It seems both are acceptable. preferences? impact?
      3- how do I know they are done? by temp? bones? probe?
       
      Any other suggestions?
       
      I'll post during and after pics tomorrow.
       
      Thanks
