For finger lickin' summer feasts, there's nothing like a good ole charcoal grill — it's easy to use, easy to clean and infuses food with smoky goodness. The Kamado Joe Jr. Portable Charcoal Grill takes things to another level. It's made of super-heavy ceramic, so once you close that lid you'll get a steady temperature for consistent (and consistently delicious!) results, plus the oval shape allows hot air to evenly circulate. Right now you can grab it for $299 (from $499). We've done the math and, well, that's $200 in savings — a sweet 40% off! Time to pounce.
The Joe Jr. sits 13.5 inches high on a cast iron stand which holds it securely. It's crafted with thick walls and a heat-resistant shell that keeps smoke and moisture contained so that food cooks evenly. There's even a cast-iron air vent that regulates temperature and a built-in temp gauge so you can easily heat the grill up. It also includes a handy stainless steel cooking grate that props your food up while your roast it over the coals. And if you really want to deck your new grill out, you can grab a few accessories from Kamado.
Aside from the grill's impressive cooking abilities, shoppers love that it's portable. It weighs just over 75 pounds, versus some that weigh anywhere from 120 to over 800 pounds for some gas models. Not exactly ideal for taking on the road.
Joe, Jr., however, is an ideal traveling companion. Just ask this guy: "Bought this to take camping 'cause I use a Kamado Big Joe at the house. Wound up using Jr. at the house for smaller meal cooks. All the benefits of Kamado Joe, but in a smaller package. Comes to temp quickly and easy heat control."
"Most magnificent grill I've ever cooked on!" another grillmaster said.
"Honey, I shrunk the Joe,' said a fan. "Having used a full sized Joe for over a decade, I wanted to free up space. Out with the big! In with the small! Cooking quality still amazing!"
"First Kamado, and I love it," raved this newbie. "So much nicer than a regular BBQ, like a Weber. I never was much for big grills, so the small size is ideal for me. Can do everything for my small family I need to do."
Said this family man: "Everything tastes better when cooked with this grill. Doesn't need to refill charcoals for hours cooking at 400 degrees. Temperature control is precise. It's the right size for two adults and two kids. It's light enough to be moved around, which is necessary from time to time."
