I recently was informed that there will be a XL Kamado Joe that should be in stores in about 8 weeks. It has the same size cooking grid as the BGE XL (24) but it is much taller.

MSRP should be $1199 for the XL Kamado Joe, Cart and Side Shelves.

In the picture below on the right is the standard size 18" KJ.

And that Kamado XL is a beast. Are they made in USA?

Nope. Primo is the last Ceramic Grill company that can say that. Kamado Joe is made in China.

I almost like the red.

Down here put an "A" on that red one and it will sell like hotcakes with the Bama fans

WOW... How much does THAT one weigh?

Chad, weight not out yet, that is an acutal photo from the factory...it was leaked out somehow...no details on the specs just yet. That being said, I must have one, or two.
