I recommend you run, not walk to Lowes and grab one of these.

I'm going to do a packer on it tomorrow and will report back.
I'm really glad to hear that from someone who has cooked on an egg. I have seen a lot of kamados up close but never cooked on one and when I saw this one I felt like it would be better than the rest. I'm thinking this is a good choice if you don't want to fork out for an egg.

I'm glad that I came across you post today. I just heard about this Kamado 2 days ago. I went to the local Lowe's last night to take a look at one, but they did not have any. Nobody has said, and their ad does not say, is the Char Griller Kamado insulated, or just an inner and outer layer of metal ? Looking forward to seeing how your low and slow cook turned out. Thanks for all the info !

  • Cooking space is 306-inch and a warm rack of 165-inch
  • Insulated design means more heat uses less charcoal and less airflow means insulated heat for juicy meat
  • Cooking surface is cast iron and will hold up to 23 burgers; body is constructed of 22 gauge steel; exterior finish is powder coated steel; interior finish is porcelain coated steel; easy to assemble
  • Cart is constructed of tubular steel with rubber wheels, locking caster on front; indexed damper is numbered so you can note the position of the damper when you cook your favorite meals - this adds to the consistence of your cooking experience
  • Features locking lid, 2 folding wood shelves; easy dump ash pan; double wall insulation, heat gauge

The tables on the Lowes model are metal and not wood.

I'm really surprised to hear that temps respond rather quickly. I'm wondering if your initial higher heat or the fact that you lit your lump at the bottom has anything to do with that? Or maybe your maverick is more sensitive than stem therms..

I'm curious what the footprint LxW is with the tables folded down? Is it heavy to load it in back of a pickup? I have no intentions of getting rid of my kegs, but this is why I ask..

If I may answer.....my estimate is that it weighs 40-50 pounds. Very easy to move around. Overall, a fairly small foorprint.

I measured the footprint at 30" wide and about 25" deep with the tables folded up.

I think it's a bit heavier. A similar cooker is listed on Amazon at 90 lbs. It's another flavor of this same cooker so the weight should be give or take 5lbs.

My butt cook is finished. I ended up pulling it off at 195 degrees internal and the temp stayed parked between 265 and 275 for the entire cook, which ran for 7 hours and 45 minutes. The next time I do a low and slow cook, I'll be using a different lump charcoal and I'll see if I can get the temp to park at 250 or below. As far as I'm concerned, anything under 300 degrees qualifies as low and slow so I'm quite happy with the results today. I'll have the new video up late tonight. I'm waiting until I cut into the meat to make the last brief segment of this review. I think leaving that out would be short-changing the process :)

Wow! My wife is much stronger than I thought! Can't wait to see part three of your video series.
