Kamado Joe Classic II Review

I love my Kamado Joe Classic II and if you enjoy outdoor cooking you will love it too. The Kamado Joe allows you grill, cold smoke, hot smoke, slow cook, sear, cook up to 800-degree wood-fire pizzas, rotisserie, and so much more. Yes, it’s a bit expensive, but it’s also worth it and the investment pays off in the quality of the food and the extra enjoyment you’ll experience as a result. Get yours today – you can find it on Amazon, Costco, Famous Tate, Pinch-a-Penny, and many other locations that sell higher-level outdoor grills.

Did You Know?

The Kamado Joe Classic II was featured as one of the top products in my 2018 Essential Guide to Awesomeness E-Book (click here to get a free copy).

BTW, if you are stuck deciding between a Kamado Joe and a Big Green Egg, I also wrote a separate post about why I chose the Kamado Joe over the Big Green Egg so be sure to check out that article too.
