Thanks! 

Don’t fret about missing Costco at your local Costco. I think Costco will be at your local Costco today, and probably tomorrow, too.  If not, Costco’s website probably has a store locator, so you can

The Classic 3 is not available at roadshows.. Just the 2.  Atlanta Grill Company sells the 3 and they have a flat rate $99 delivery fee.

Before entering non profit work, my last job was in Logistics (moving frieght around the world) twenty years ago. $99 for delivery for not only the weight but also bulk of the shipping crate of the KJ's would have been outrageous even then. That represents a spectacular rate.

Would anyone one know what models of the Kamado Joe they have at the Costco road show?  I was looking at getting the Classic III as a Father’s Day present for my husband.  Also, given their size how do you get it home?  Do they deliver or do we need to borrow a truck & my son’s friends?

 

When we bought our KJ Classic II last year from the road show the KJ rep was kind enough to unbox everything from the palette and fit it in our SUV. It was tight - the ceramic top was wedged against the ceiling - but it worked and was a pretty easy 2 person assembly once we got it home. It turned out to be fortuitous because the first one he unboxed had a big crack in the ceramic so he just went back and grabbed another. I believe there is also an option to order it and have it shipped it but I don't know how much that would cost or how long it would take.

As a rule Costco will not ship the grills from the roadshows (i suppose there are always exceptions to be found). That said, Costco briefly ran a sale last month where the KJ grills were available online with included shipping charges. The price was more than cash-and-carry at a warehouse, but still not a bad deal. But it was only for April.

So if I've got this right Costco only has gen 2 not 3; and a big Joe is being offered at what price 1699?

 

Was planning on going to get a Joe 3.  But now I've got some head scratching to do.  

PS- anyone know Maryland's sales tax rate?

 

Thanks-Alex

 

 

Alex, right now Atlanta Grill Company is having a pre-Father's Day Sale which runs to June 15. 


Classic II - 799.00

Classic III - 1369.00

 

Big Joe II - 1299.00

Big Joe III - 1999.00

 

$99 Flat rate drop shipping to the 48 contiguous United States.

 

At these prices the Costco advantage is greatly reduced. In the warehouse you would get a box of fire starters and grill cover included in the price of the grill and the opportunity to take it home immediately and start cooking. No matter from whom you buy the KJ warranty still applies. 

Good luck!

Darn I missed the sale any idea If they're going to have another one like maybe for July 4th ? I'd love to get a big Joe II at that price point.

Just purchased the KJ Big Joe 24 last night...via Costco online. Will advise of any issues. I'd been hunting for a kamado for a few months, and this just hit at the right time. Probably $250-$300 cheaper than I can snag that same one anywhere within 100 miles of where I am. Ordered at 9:45 PM last night...got shipping notification at 11 am today already. 

 

Already enjoying the charcoal discussions...I'm in the market obviously. Really want to try out the DoJoe pizza accessory....even if it's pricey as hell.

      Hello There!
       
      Texan, currently living in Seattle, finally got a backyard to do some grilling in this summer!
       
      I'm currently grilling on a Weber performer, while I restore a Big Joe that I got off fb marketplace.  I have a thread in the DIY section with some photos if anyone is interested or has some good recommendations.  
       
      Can't wait to get cooking on the Kamado once it is up and running.  Most looking forward to cooking some pizzas and of course brisket, being a Texan!
       
      Thanks,
      Cameron Spencer

      Hello there!  
       
      I'm new to the world of Kamado cooking and to this forum, so I'm looking forward to some dialogue.
       
      So I recently found a Big Joe for sale on fb marketplace for the irresistible price of $100!  The main body is in not terrible shape, but it's missing quite a few items, and will need some cleaning/repair.  I'm hoping the combined expertise hear can help me get this thing in good working order for the least amount of extra $ possible, and more importantly without damaging the integrity of the grill.
       
      Condition Report:
      The ceramic body itself is in good shape with no major cracks or chips.  There are a few issues that need to be addressed however:
      The upper part of the interior has some green staining.  I assume this is from algae/moss since I live in the PNW.  Any tips on how to gently clean this, or should I just do a burnout when I get the rest set up?  The felt gaskets are in pretty bad shape and will need to be replaced (tips on cleaning and removing gunk would be welcome too).  The wire mesh gasket is mostly intact but has come loose.  Does anyone know of an adhesive that would be safe to use to re-attach it?   I'm not sure what to call this, but the hole that helps align the hinge on the back side of the band has been worn quite a bit.  Making the hole about 1 1/2" long and the ceramic a bit crumbly there (see pic).  Does anyone know of any substance I could safely patch this with, and how best to reattach the bands?  
      Missing parts:
      At that low of a price I wasn't too concerned about replacing a few parts, but after price checking I found I need approx $400-$450 in replacement parts.  I can get most of these from BBQ Guys, but I figured I would reach out to the community here and see if people had recommendations for third party replacements, custom ideas, or (fingers crossed) extra parts that they need to get rid of.  Here is a list of what I need:
      Firebox Deflector Grill Grates Flex cooking rack (is this necessary or is there another way to grill/smoke without it?) Replacement Gasket kit Missing the upper half of the cart, not sure if I will try and purchase that, or make a custom table I will be focusing on grilling and smoking with this grill, so I don't really need some of the specialty items.
       
      I know this is a lot of information/questions, so don't feel like you have to address everything, but if you have some advice on any of the subjects, I'd greatly appreciate it.
       
      Thanks and happy grilling!

      hey guys,
       
      Ive had a few pizza sessions on my kj classic 2. Although the last time i warped the steel firebox ring so not sure that should count as successful! I thought it aould be good to ask a kj specific question.  
       
      My set up is deflectors on the grill in top position. Spacers on top of that with pizza stone then on top.
       
      So my question/s is when doing high heat cooks:
      1. How long do u let the kj heat sink for? I have just opened the vents and let it ride. When up to 650/700 put pizzas on.
      2. Where do people set their vents? How open is the bottom and top? As above i nlrmally just open them up and stick the pizza on at above the 650/700 mark.
      3. How long should this sort of temp last or is safe for the kj? If i had a pizza party how long could this keep up for eg.
       
      Any advice or thoughts is welcome?
       
      Cheers
      Nathan

      Morning Kamado Warriors, 
       
      First time poster and an all round amateur "cooker" in all honesty. Been using cheap hardware store Charcoal BBQs for about 10 years but decided that if i am going to be stuck at home for months then i am going to do it with a beer in my hand and a decent plate of food in front of me. I have just purchased a Big Joe 3 and it's on it's way ... Here comes the concern.
       
      I live in the UK and have no access to my garden, i have to go through the house. UK Standard door width is 29" (74cms) ... is the dam thing actually going to fit through the door? Due to COVID, its me and my wife and we can't ask people for help due to the restriction in the UK. I can lift / shift a 100Kg washer dryer on my own but it almost kills me. My wife is fairly strong but i am worried that we will not be able to move the BBQ into the house to wait for reinforcements.   
      I should thought of these things before buying a ceramic hulk but all the pictures of you guys enjoying a veritable conucopia of meat dishes made me hasty!

      I have been seeing whole fish at Costco for some time now so I decided to give it a go. I bought some snapper for diner last night and was blown away by the results.
       
      I watched Mr. Setzler's video on grilling a whole fish as a guide along with some recipes I found on the interwebs.
       
      2 snappers gutted and cleaned (got mine from Costco as I said previously) Cut crosshatch slits on both sides of the fish (next time I will just do horizontal slits for easier removal of skin) Seasoned with garlic rosemary seasoning Salted with a few pinches of kosher salt Spritzed with olive oil generously on each side Stuffed cavity with fresh rosemary, thyme and dill from the garden Sprinkled lime juice to finish off  
      Using the Big Joe, I lit just one side and set the fish for direct at the highest level grate. I used a fish\veggie tray to keep the fish from falling apart.
      I had the temp at around 300-325 and grilled each side for 9 minutes until the inter temp as around 140.
       
      The flavor was amazing! I don't think I would have the intense herb flavors if I had just cooked fillets but I will be trying that in the future.
       
      I served the fish with some leftover bulgur pilaf and a spinach berry salad.
       
      I have never had snapper before that I can remember but I am now a huge fan!!
