I love my Komodo Kamado, as I do all of the little members of my grill and smoker family.

Thanks Silverfinger - Dennis the owner sells them factory direct and the only way you can buy one is thru him. Just enamored with his product and will have either a 23 inch or 32 inch model soon and looking forward to seeing the factory and an awesome vacation.

Take care,

Mark

Yes - he keeps ready stock there. If you order one that he doesn't have there takes about two months as 40 days on a ship and then has to clear customs.

You see them for sell on Craig's list every now and then in this area for real cheap prices.

Exorbitantly priced for what they are - for the same money, buy an Egg or a Joe AND nice vertical smoker. Don't get 'em. Never will.

23" has 82 lbs of stainless steel and 32" has 128 lbs.

304 Stainless

Anyone priced stainless lately? I went to Ace Hardware the other day and they wanted $2.50 for a single stainless acorn nut.

The BGE compared to to a Komodo Kamado is like comparing a Fred Flinstone car to a Ferrari.

No bands to replace or adjust

Gasket won't burn up or need replaced

Simply pointing out that I think Liberace would prefer the Kamado. Fred would just stick with the egg.

My old kamado might not be able to reach temps that high without blowing up. It is all original. Not bad for being over 50 years old. Paid 240.00 for it.
What I've cooked out of it? Priceless!!
