Going Beyond the Expected. The only brand created by kamado users, for kamado users. We’ve introduced a new standard in both quality and experience, letting our Joes focus on their craft.

The Story of Kamado Joe
Click to see the information

We’ve all been there: in the middle of something you love doing, only to be frustrated by the quality of a tool. Maybe it doesn’t break. But it doesn’t work like it could. That was our realization about grilling. We loved it. We did it all the time. But weekend after weekend, we’d find ourselves disappointed by our grills and tools. We knew there was a better way—which is what inspired us to design and develop a better grill. Kamado Joe® isn’t just a line of products. It’s what happens when two guys who love to grill get serious about creating the world’s best ceramic cooker. Better quality. Smarter features. More innovative accessories. That’s the story of Kamado Joe®.

Passion, Quality, Innovation
Click to see the information


The heart of our business isn’t a business. It’s a community of people who love the same thing everyone in our company loves: cooking outside with and for our friends and family. That passion is a fire that fuels us everyday in everything we do.


Crafted to perform better and last longer. That’s the simple, uncompromising quality standard that drives everything we do at Kamado Joe®—from design to production. Our goal is simple: that each product bearing our name becomes a trusted part of exceptional grilling experiences.


From our earliest days, our focus was on solving problems others hadn’t or couldn’t so that people could get more out of grilling. We don’t settle. It’s a commitment that’s clear in everything from the features of our flagship grills to the size of our massive lump charcoal.

Classic III

Our Kamado Joe® Classic III includes our newest innovation, the revolutionary SlōRoller Hyperbolic Smoke Chamber insert. Harnessing the power of cyclonic airflow technology to control heat and smoke, the SlōRoller insert is designed to perfect the taste and texture of food on low-and-slow cooks up to 500°F, and is easily swapped out for heat deflector plates when searing or grilling at higher temperatures. As with its predecessor, the Classic II, it also features a thick-walled, heat-resistant shell that locks in smoke and moisture at any temperature.

The Ceramic III Stand-Alone Grill is ideal for outdoor kitchen installation or use with any outdoor grilling table.

Grill Features

Kamado Joe Air Lift Hinge
  • Other kamado grills allow the dome to fall or slam during lifting or closing, but our breakthrough hinge significantly reduces dome weight - so you can lift it with a finger and stop it wherever you want.
3-Tier Divide & Conquer® Cooking System
  • Our patented Divide & Conquer® Flexible Cooking System transforms the humble grill grate into the most powerful cooking tool in your arsenal. The revolutionary multi-level, half-rack design frees you to cook different foods in different styles at different temperatures—all at the same time. You’ll end up with a perfect, well-rounded meal without ever leaving the grill.
Patented Slōroller Hyperbolic Smoke Chamber
  • The first of its kind, the revolutionary SlōRoller leverages patented, Harvard science that transforms a Kamado Joe® into one of the world’s most optimal smokers. By distributing smoke and heat in rolling, recirculating waves throughout the smoke chamber, the SlōRoller surrounds food in clouds of delicious smoke while evenly distributing heat—resulting in enhanced flavor and significantly reduced hot spots.

Optional Upgrades


    The durable cast aluminum JoeTisserie transforms the Kamado Joe® into a new kind of spit, harnessing the self-basting action of a rotisserie inside the signature Kamado Joe® high-fire ceramic body for meats that are smoky, juicy, and tender. With a quiet-but-powerful motor that can spin up to 50 pounds of chicken, prime rib or Boston butt, the innovative JoeTisserie features a distinctive wedge shape so cooks can seal off the kamado dome for optimal heat retention. The durable spit rod is easy to install and features quickly adjustable forks for excellent balance, and the constant, steady rotation preserves the meat’s natural juices for an even cook.

      Ikamand Smart Temperature Control and Monitoring Device

        Maintain automatic temperature control of your kamado ceramic grill with the iKamand smart grill feature and the Kamado Joe app. Simply attach the smart device to the bottom vent of your charcoal ceramic grill, and total control over heat, smoke, and the target temperature is in your hands.


            One of the latest innovations, the durable cast-aluminum DōJoe transforms your Kamado Joe into a best-in-class pizza oven. Ideal for beginners and expert chefs alike, the distinctive wedge shape of the DōJoe makes maintaining steady temperatures ranging from 400°F to 700°F effortless—even over the course of hours—while also allowing grillers to easily see and monitor their pizza or other baked goods as they cook. Dedicated supports for the Kamado Joe Heat Deflectors and Kamado Joe Pizza Stone ensure optimum distances between, guaranteeing perfect crust and crisp toppings.

              Fire Starters
              • Our grill fire starter cubes are designed for igniting lump charcoal and to burn clean and odorless.

              Electric Charcoal Starter
              • Quickly fire up your grill with 600 watts of electricity delivered right to the charcoal.
              • The three-loop design and angled stainless steel element ensure the best contact for safe, fast light.
              Lump Charcoal - 20 Lbs.

              Hickory Wood Chunks - 10 Lbs.
              • Kiln dried apple wood chunks have a very mild, subtle, sweet, fruity flavor.

              • Once I decided on buying this particular model, I did exhaustive research on several different vendors and settled on the Grill Collection, because of their amazing customer service, response time, and unbelievable price match. Jerome was absolutely amazing to work with, and I very much look forward to ordering the rest of my appliances and equipment for my outdoor kitchen space in the coming days. The customer service from Grill Collection is unmatched by any of the other companies I have spoken with. Someone is always right there to step in and answer a question for you. After sending an email inquiry, I received a response in less than two hours. The delivery process was flawless. Once I was notified the grill had shipped, I was immediately given my tracking number, and within days I was contacted by the carrier to set up delivery. The delivery process was incredibly smooth, they placed the grill exactly where I requested it, they inspected it with me, and I couldn't be happier. From shipping to arrival, it was less than a week before it arrived to ship cross country. If you are in need of anything for your backyard space, Grill Collection is the place to buy it!!!

              • The primary reason I chose Grill Collection is because they had the item I wanted in stock where other sites selling the same item wasn't available till the end of the year. I had already purchased the unit from another website and I really didn't want to go through the hassle of trying to get a refund and then waiting for the refund and then turning around and purchasing another unit somewhere else. I purchased the unit from the other website previously because their website said I would receive the unit by the end of July. When the transaction was completed and they finally received the notice from the manufacturer the shipping and receiving dates changed. It was now shipping by Nov 27th and receiving by Dec 2nd, basically I would be waiting half a year to receive my order so that wasn't going to work. By then summer is over!!! Second and most important reason I chose Grill Collection is because of Erica's awesome customer service, many many thanks to Erica for her service. She finalized my decision based on many factors besides the fact that I'm an Amazon Prime Member and paying through Amazon would work for me as well but also these reasons: 1. Prompted to serve customers need. 2. If I had problems with my order I know it wouldn't take hours to get s hold of customer service 3. Talking to a live representative vs machine 100% 4. Piece of mind knowing that I'm doing business with a company that's 100% behind my customer satisfaction with guaranteed product availability and delivery, makes me want to purchase only from them. 5. Lower price definitely!!! 6. 👍😇😉😆 Thank you Can't wait to get my grill!!

              • I had a fantastic experience with the Grill Collection. First when I was shopping online for the Napoleon Prestige 500 grill you had the lowest price online. I was shopping late on a Saturday night and was not expecting anyone to be available to chat to answer some questions but someone was available (I forget his name) and he answered my questions so I placed the order that day. Lastly I know most of these were taking 4 weeks to ship but you were able to ship mine in under 3 weeks, sooner than expected. Post order support was great as well. You should be very proud of the service you provide, few companies have people online available to chat at on the weekends and shipping sooner than expected is rare!
