  • 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.
  • The Kamado Joe KJ23RHCI-A kamado grill is constructed from 1 1/4-inch thick ceramic that holds heat, maintain any temperature and is extremely porous to keep moisture in your meat, producing incredibly juicy, tender food with a true wood-fired flavor.
  • Divide and Conquer Flexible Cooking System 3-tiered rack setup (only on Classic Joe III) that holds up to four additional half-moon grates and allows for a larger cooking area up to 510 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 patented Kontrol Tower top vent maintains a consistent air setting for precise temperature management, and it will not slip out of position as the lid is opened. The top vent is constructed with cast aluminum for superior resistance to rust. The dome lid and base feature a double thick, wire mesh fiberglass gasket which offers a superior air-tight seal and long-lasting performance.
  • The airlift hinge reduces the dome weight by 96%, making it easy to lift the heavy ceramic lid with the high-density polyethylene (HDPE) handle. The lid will also stay open at any desired position, allowing you to cook with the lid partially open if you choose to.

Overview

The Kamado Joe KJ23RHCI-A Classic III 18-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 Classic II, the Classic Joe III also includes the Divide & Conquer cooking system which is composed of a 3-tiered rack setup (only on Classic Joe III) that holds up to four additional half-moon grates and allows for a larger cooking area up to 510 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 Classic 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 Classic 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.

Too Easy

I am new to grilling and I've smoked wings, ribs, whole chicken and at no point have I been disappointed. If you want maximum smoke flavor with the ease of a well thought out grill/smoker. Look no further.

Jack of all trades, master of all!

The Kamado Joe Classic 3 was my first purchase after moving into my new home. I've had the grill for one week and I've already cooked perfect steaks, a rotisserie chicken, and the juiciest brisket I've ever made. The grill comes with just enough of a learning curve to make it a fun hobby to engage with, but the thick ceramic holds the temp steadier than I could have imagined so it's nice not feeling like I have to baby sit it. I was on the fence between the classic and the big joe, but so far seems like the classic is a perfect size! Thrilled with my purchase, you will be too.

Fantastic grill

I bought this grill last year, and it is amazing. Everything that has come off the grill has exceptional taste. TOP OF THE LINE. However the top vent is flawed works great when it is new but eventually, it's almost impossible to open until the grill gets warm. Just the other day I tried cleaning the top vent with degreaser, and the paint has started to flake off. But the grill itself is fantastic

Seriously ruining restaurants for us!

This grill is amazing. So easy to get restaurant quality flavors right in our backyard. We have had it for about six weeks and are addicted. Everything we have made, chicken, fish, pork, cauliflower, even a whole turkey came out just amazing.

Wish I'd Gotten a KJ Years Ago

After many underwhelming cooks, I finally decided to ditch my mid-range pellet grill and step up to a Kamado-style cooker. Doing even a basic amount of research makes the Kamado Joe a no-brainer when compared to other brands in this style. The features, the construction, and quite honestly, the value, make this a great choice. I will say there is a learning curve to using this style of cooker, but once you figure it out, they are very easy to master. The results are considerably better than what you get on a pellet grill, and the versatility of being able to go from low & slow to fast & hot with the same cooker cannot be overstated. My ONLY disappointment is the size...the classic is just a bit small for my family. It can hold about two slabs of spare ribs, and maybe a brisket flat only (a full packer would be hard). I you have the means, definitely step up to the Big Joe, but either way, you won't be sorry about buying one of these great cookers.
