I know you are all into the stick burners... but I really wanted to share my new setup!! I am so very pleased with the way that my Komodo Kamado 23" and 32" with custom stand turned out.

I have added this to my Kamado Joe Jr., Classic and Big Joe

I can't wait to get cooking on them!!

Thanks for looking

Put some stuff in bith grills to give a sense of the size of each grill. Somthing familiar like 6 packs, or basketballs. Those Komodo Kamados are beautiful.

Those things are BEAUTIFUL! As a BGE owner I love these kinds of cookers. They are super versatile and cook amazing BBQ. I'm just shocked at how big those cookers are are. I think my large BGE is about 19" internal diameter. Your smallest one is 23" :shock:

That big sucker must be able to hold two briskets at once... that's insane for a Kamodo style cooker.

Beautiful Beautiful cooker...

Dam, those things are huge. Please show us more!!

Just have to say I have one of the original kamados and love it! (Over 50yrs old)

You wouldn't happen to be a dealer or manufacturer of those beauties by chance, would ya?

They have three racks each, so three levels of grilling. You could easily do 5 or 6 in the 32"

silverfinger, I am just a enthusiast. If you are looking for info on them let me know. The owner is Dennis Linkletter. These are the most amazing kamado cooker to date!!!

Perspective pictures would be great. How many square inches of cooking space are available if all three racks are being used?

Did you get the rotisserie?

I'll get you spec shots tomorrow and the grilling size

Setup looks amazing!
But TOO CLEAN, it would scare me to cook for fear of getting it dirty...! (:

I woke up this morning and it must have rained last night. The new cover from KK worked perfect!!

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1386.jpg

I ran out of time last night and didnt get a chance to empty the KKs with all of their stuff.... man this was a lot of work. There is so much stuff packed inside.

here is the contents of the 23" the 32" is about the same

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1387.jpg

The grills are so bloody heavy... they are very well built and robust!!

Each KK came with three grilling racks, labeled lower, main and upper.... the 32 also came with a bonus half grill. The deflector stone on the 23" is a one piece and the 32" comes in 4 pieces. They are thick and heavy!! should do a great job deflecting heat!

each KK came with a little box of goodies, tools and extra pieces that you may lose along the way

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1391.jpg

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1392.jpg

the main grate is awesome!! and did I mention crazy heavy!!

Here is a picture of the 32" and 23" main cooking grate

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1401.jpg

Well I finally got to the bottom of the pit and wanted to get going on the burn in process.... I used about a half a bag of RO red to fill both the 23" and 32". I assume that I could have filled the basket higher

the 23" basket loaded up

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1403.jpg

and the 32" basket loaded up

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1402.jpg

The baking stones are one piece again super heavy and well built. The picture is a bit washed out but it is a little darker grey than this

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1404.jpg

the included drip pans with each KK

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1405.jpg

I ordered the rotisserie for only the 32". Its massive and seems well built

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1406.jpg

and concluded the unwrapping with the double bottom drip pans. These things are heavy!!! They may be the heaviest item next to the stones. They look great and will definitely act as a drip pan and deflector all in one!!

http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r179/bosco0633/Komodo%20Kamado/_DSC1407.jpg

Got the tel-tru installed and now we are slowly getting up in temp to complete the burn in.

It is a very exciting time, however, in all honesty... I am really tired out. This was a huge order and lots of work... the joints and muscles are paying for it a bit today!!

Inspiring setup. I was already googling before I even finished the thread. I was actually just thinking about getting a ceramic cooker. Now it's serious.

Stellar setup.

Komodo Kamado is the real deal. Dennis linkletter yet is the owner of the company and he will deal with you from beginning to end. It was a great purchase for me!!

Let me know if I can help

WOW. You are pretty much the Kamado King on this board with 5 cookers. Can't wait to see some cook threads on these...

Gorgeous pair to draw from! Dual vents are a very nice touch.
