After seeing JM's review on this product, I just may be heading to Lowes shortly and picking on of these bad boys up myself!

Well with all the talk I had to stop by a lowes today and take a look for myself. Like some others have said whoever they had put it together did a poor ass job. There was a lot of play in the slide vent intake plate. Not sure if that is normal or lack of being put together as it should be.

I did take interest in some of the comparisons it had on the tag.
  • 40% lighter than other "ceramic grill""
  • 9% larger cooking area than the large "ceramic grill"

The sliding air vent comes pre-assembled on the ash pan. It does probably need a little work to seal it up tightly. I'm going to experiment on my next cook with some high heat tape that I have to seal it off around the edges. If that generates better air flow control I will remove the vent and seal it up with some high temp rtv silicone.

Just checked these out. OUT-FARKING-STANDING videos!

Great job John! Thanks so much. I will be getting one of these. I've been wanting a Kamado for years. I've looked at the Big Red Cooker (I think that's the name) and thought it was cheap.

BTW.....I'll be that the minor air leaks you found (not that they're that much of a problem it doesn't seem) seal up with a few good cooks. I had similar air leaks around my UDS lid but no more.


Thanks again!

Got one in the back of my car now. Heading home to put it together tonight. Supposed to be some nice weather the next few days so I can do a seasoning one day and a cook the next day. More to follow tomorrow!

I bought last years model in may or june of lsst year. Its nice still. I did end up burning thru the ashpan gasket within the first few cooks. So i bought a felt bge gasket and burned through a roll of that then finally nomex. That has been good. I dont have any issue with the stainless vent. Also ive been able to cook at around 225. I usually just light half a starter cube and then your ready to go. All in all this is a good cooker. Only issue i have is the wood split on the shelves and the color faded from being uncovered outside.

I was looking this morning on their website looking for info and some auto chat box came up asking if I needed help. Told him what I was looking for and the customer support chat guy named "Kevin" said they must be new cause he never heard of it Needless to say he told me to look at the Big Easy
