Overview

The Kamado Joe BJ24RHCI-A Big Joe III 24-Inch Ceramic Grill includes the newest in kamado cooking innovation, the revolutionary SloRoller Hyperbolic Smoke Chamber insert. Harnessing the power of cyclonic airflow technology to control heat and smoke, the SloRoller insert is designed to perfect the taste and texture of the food on low-and-slow cooks up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and is easily swapped out for heat deflector plates when searing or grilling at higher temperatures. As with its predecessor, the Big Joe II, the Big Joe III also includes the Divide & Conquer cooking system which is composed of a 3-tiered rack setup (only on Big Joe III) that holds up to four additional half-moon grates and allows for a larger cooking area up to 864 sq. inches. It also allows varying height levels for different temperature ranges giving you the ability to grill whatever you want however you want. The Amp firebox is made of high-fire, heat-resistant ceramic plates that are capable of resisting damage and breakage from high heat and stress. Sitting atop of the firebox is the 304 stainless steel charcoal basket that allows for easy cleanup and conservation of unused charcoal by quickly sifting ash between the basket bars. Once the ash is sifted, the slide-out 304 stainless steel ash drawer gives a means of effortless removal. At the top of the Big Joe III is the powder-coated cast aluminum Kontrol Tower top vent that provides precise temperature control by controlling the airflow through the kamado and stays on its current setting even while opening and closing the lid. The Air Lift Hinge makes opening and closing the lid a breeze by reducing roughly 96 percent of the weight of the lid. The Big Joe III also comes equipped with powder-coated aluminum side shelves, an analog thermometer, a 304 stainless steel latch and firebox ring, a wire mesh fiberglass gasket, grate gripper, an ash cleaning tool, 3 tiered cooking rack, 2 half-moon cooking grids, and a SloRoller insert.

Reviews for Kamado Joe Big Joe III 24-Inch Charcoal Ceramic Kamado Grill

You'll never use a propane grill again, QUALITY!!!

"I spent a long time researching and saving for a forever BBQ. I was originally set on the Engelbrecht Braten, then I started to look into egg style grills. All roads pointed to Kamado Joe. When I went to go see this grill in person I couldn't believe the quality. This grill is like parking a Ferrari on your patio, it gets all the attention.Let's get on to bang for your buck, when you compare prices of all the Kamado style grills one thing missing from the price comparison is that the Kamado Joe comes with everything you need to smoke and grill. All the other Kamados you have to buy accessories, the Kamado Joe comes with everything you need to grill and smoke.Performance, this grill holds heat like no other grill. On other smokers I have had maintaining the firebox was a pain. This grill maintains temp on one load of charcoal and lasts for a long cook without having to add more coals. And when your done cooking just close all the dampers and the coals go out and you can reuse them next time.Even before I got the kamado joe I was using kamado big block charcoal in my other smoker and its the best lump charcoal you can get. These blocks are huge and long burning, just like everything Kamado Joe does they are quality.Lastly the attention to detail is another thing that sets this kamado apart from all other grills. When I went to pick up my grill I couldn't get past how well this grill was packaged. The cardboard is so thick you would think it is bulletproof.If your in the market for a new grill forget propane, you have an oven and gas grills dont impart the same flavors lump charcoal. As far shopping for a Kamado YouTube is your best reference, I watched hours worth of videos on comparisons and people cooking on all makes of Kamados and every time the Kamado Joe came out on top. Even after I was set on the Kamado Joe I have racked up several hours more worth of cooking videos, I have a long list of must cooks on this grill but everything I have done so far has been amazing. But so far my favorite 3 cooks I have done are a Tri Tip, St Louis Ribs and Octopus. My first upgrade to this grill will be the DoJoe as I do a lot of bread baking."

Finally I can cook!

For cooking certain foods you need specific tools. Pizza and smoked meats are some of them. After managing to cook Pizza for 20 years with different ovens, I am finally able to cook it the right way! Also, I always wanted to smoke meats and with my Kamado, I have done Brisket and few other meats few times. Although it has been a learning curve, but I am getting awesome results. One of the learning items for me was my charcoal, don't be trying to reinvent the wheel! For the price and quality, you can not beat Kamado Joe's bags of charcoal. They burn hot and clean. This is my great toy gift to myself and my family couldn't be happier!

"This thing is amazing and can do it all"

"I bought this late summer last year after a TON of research and consideration. I wanted something that could smoke a brisket, do high heat burgers and steaks, and even higher heat pizzas....and something that could rotissierie as well would be even better. The Big Joe does all of this.I wanted something that could run low and slow by itself for hours without fussing at building and relighting, like with a snake charcoal setup. My first cook was an overnight 18 hr brisket smoke. 230 before going to sleep, 231 next morning, no waking up, etc.Truly a great product. The biggest challenge in my mind is saving up the cash, but thankfully, you get what you pay for."

Amazing Grill

I bought mine 4 months ago and use it twice a week. I wasn't sure if I should get the Classic or Big Joe. I'm so glad I went with Big Joe. The size is perfect for a 18lb brisket and let's you easily reverse sear 4 big steaks at once.

Worth the Upgrade

I am new to kamado style grilling and it is awesome! I've been a charcoal griller for a long time and so the learning curve was not as steep as I thought it would be. Controlling the temp is easy, the food is wonderful and the features that persuaded me to buy the Joe instead of the egg have proved to be worth it. Spending 2K on a grill is steep for me and about four times more than I've spent before so I was hesitant to upgrade to the Big Joe III but I am so glad I did. The Big Joe allows me to cook multiple things at once and the upgraded features are well worth it. The sloroller is easy and does a great job at smoking. I love my Big Joe III and wouldn't trade it!

Big Joe lll Review

I bought the Big Joe lll in January 2020. What intrigued me the most was the addition of the SloRoller. The technology of the SloRoller was to distribute smoke and heat in recirculating waves resulting in enhanced smoke flavor. This new technology works as advertised. I had a previous ceramic grill/smoker and didn't feel the smoke flavor was as good as on my offset stick smoker. That is no longer the case. Also the new Big Joe lll requires very little assembly unlike many of the Kamado Joe competitors. Since purchasing the Big Joe Im haven't looked back and use it as may primary grill and smoker.

"This grill blows me away"

I'm a grill-oholic. I grill 3-4 times a week. I have several nice grills. I my my Big Joe III almost a year ago. It did cost a bit but well worth it. It's the best for grilling and smoking. It comes with all the stuff that other grills make you buy extra. The quality and heavy construction will allow this grill to last for ever. Easy to set and maintain temperatures whether you are doing a long slow cook or a high heat cook.I just did a 17 1/2 hour brisket cook. Had a good bit of charcoal left over and an unbelievable piece of meat. The slow roller, that comes with it, is fantastic for long, slow cooks with great smoke. I could keep on about this cooker but gotta get ready for my next smoke.

Greatest Grill EVER

This grill is, without a remotely close second, the best grill I have ever owned.With as well built as it is, am likely to not likely to ever need to purchase another one. I can easily smoke a full brisket & a spatchcocked 20 lb turkey on this Bad Boy----need I say more. I recently did a Snake River Farms Wagoo Gold Briskett that I would have won The American Royal with had I been able to enter it!

Love My BJ III

I absolutely love my Kamado Joe!! It is a great smoker and grill compared to Big Green Egg. (which I have owned two over the years). I bought my Big Joe III last year for my birthday. It is a superior grill in every way...from the one finger lifting of the top to the heavy duty seal it provides, I can't say enough good things about my KJ. IT ROCKS!

Good grill but I expected more for the price

I bought the grill a couple months ago and it works as expected. Temperature control is very easy and it is a jack of all trades. I expected some of the features to work better like the air hinge has needed tightening multiple times and the smoke roller is a pain to clean. That being said, I would buy the grill again.

Love the Big Joe

This is the 2nd Big Joe I have purchased in 2 years. We sold our house and the buyer requested my smoker so i decided to buy another once we moved. I absolutely love them. The ceramic is way better than metal smokers, and its simple assembly allows you to smoke day 1. Enjoy.

This Is The Greatest Grill and Smoker Ever

I never write reviews but I can't say enough about my Kamado Joe - Big Joe III. I spent a lot of time researching smokers before I purchased anything and nothing came close, it's even Comsumer Reports number one pick for a Kamado grill. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Best Culinary Purchase

Purchased a couple of months ago and averaged 4 to 5 cooks a week on it and it takes your cooking to another level of enjoyment and quality. I went from a Weber charcoal and never looked back, it has become an obsession and my family loves everything cooked on the Kamado Joe.

"definitely worth the price"

Have owned kamel joe jr for two years. definitely the best grill and smoker I have ever owned over 50 years. The flavor you get from smoked meats is incredible, something I could never get on my gas or regular charcoal grill. Definitely worth the price. Quality is excellent.
