I've only seen pictures of the Kamado Joe but that looks much more like a BGE build. This "Big Red" is more like the Steel Keg but I'm not sure if it is as heavy duty as the keg seems to be. It's made my Char-Griller Sea Island, GA.
I've decided to wait to put it together as our cabin is about an hour away and its nicely packed right now and I'm worried I'd end up banging it up if I put it together and then transport it. I'll post pictures in a month or so when its put together.
The funny thing is that I can't find one thing online about it. Not even the Char Griller website has it. The full name on the manual is King-Griller by Char-Griller "Big Red" Kamado Kooker Model 06619. The website they list for ordering the cover is www.chargriller.com
. It's a bit bigger than the BGE Large (I think 302 sq. inches).
