I love cooking BBQ. I have been smoking meat for years. I even built my own smoker because I couldnít find one exactly like I wanted. Iím often ask to cook for gatherings and groups.
I really have been wanting to add a kamodo style cooker to my stable. I think there would be a place and time for me to need one, especially since my smoker is big and heavy and just takes a lot of time to get ready and clean up if I just want to do say, one brisket or a few racks of ribs.
Iím learning about these egg style grills. The Big Green Egg, Kamodo Joe and even Webber has one now.
I just want to hear from you guys anything you might want to pass on if you own one or cook on one.
Thanks

Is is a Kamodo Joe or another brand?
Do you use the charcoal they recommend or do you use something else?

They are all basically the same. The only real difference is size, shape and accessories. We have both a Primo and Big Green Egg and enjoy both of them.

Been smoking and grilling on 2 different sized Big Green Eggs for the past 12 years, 3-5 times a week for the patio cooking. Itís all about controlling the temp with the air flow. If you study each brandís air flow system, it is very apparent the BGE is sealed up better than the rest, by far. If I need 3 degrees temp change, I can get it with theBGE. I can load 15 lbís of lump charcoal in my XL BGE, get the temp set, throw on a 14 lb. brisket, and never open the BGE or add charcoal for a 250 degree, 12 hr. smoke, and have charcoal left over for a couple more grillings. I can start a brisket, go to bed, and 45 minutes per lb. later have as good of a brisket as you have ever eaten! There was a learning curve for sure, but once I figured it out my other conventional smokers were gone from the patio. Still use a conventional for competion, but only so I donít lose my man card!
BGE is the best of the ceramics, IMO!

How do you get a decent smoke ring on your brisket in a BGE?

Get just as good a smoke ring in the BGE as my wood burner. Sometimes, Iíll add 2-3 fist size chunks of mesquite, hickory, or pecan on top of my lump charcoal for some added flavor, if desired.
That price doesnít seem out of line, but I will say the basic BGE nest leaves something to be desired. I quickly upgraded my nests to custom built nests.

Yes, all the time when smoking, baking, and cooking pizza. Put the plate setter in legs up, and a foil drip pan fits nicely between the platesetter and under the grill rack to catch drippings. Legs down and slide a pizza stone on top when cooking pizza.
