Depressed
by the dreadful weather?! Hate snow? Stuck at home and can't wait for the summer to start to enjoy a nice bbq?! No need to wait! Costco has this 24" Kamado Grill for a fraction of the price of a Large green egg or Big Kamado joe! And it works all year round! A true bargain!! Why not enjoy a bbq on the snow and make all your neighbours jealous! It is £100 cheaper in store then delivered, but mind you will need a big car (or a sledge?) as the box is huge and weights 131kg.

Description:

If you like to entertain, the Pit Boss 24" Kamado Grill Ceramic BBQ is perfect with 61 cm of grilling surface, giving you space to cook plenty of burgers, sausages and rib-eye steaks. The Pit Boss 24" Kamado Grill Ceramic BBQ is the largest in its class and offers a high quality design, cooking versatility and that authentic charcoal flavour. Perfect for large groups or BBQ entertainment, the Pit Boss 24" Kamado Grill offers 0.43 m² (662 in²) of two-tiered, 304 grade stainless steel cooking surface, making the most of the heat and space. Offering a total cooking area of 37 m² (573 in²), the main rack is 0.19 m² (299 in²) and upper rack is 0.18 m² (274 in²). The heavy duty ceramic exterior body is finished with a glossy blue finish and cold rolled steel (CRS) trim, and the fire bowl is able to reach temperatures up to 371°C (700°F). This grill is fuelled by premium hardwood lump charcoal to achieve the authentic BBQ taste.

The grill features heavy duty hardware that keeps the ceramic body secure and provides a lasting product. The spring loaded hinge allows for smooth opening and closing of the lid, while the shock absorbing plunger offers added protection against slamming. The locking casters allow for easy mobility and locking the grill safely into position.

The Pit Boss 24" Kamado Grill Ceramic BBQ comes complete with blue composite side shelves with tool hooks for additional space which fold down for easy storage. There are four heavy duty swivel casters making this grill easy to manoeuvre and perfect for entertaining.

Due to the heat efficiency of lump charcoal in the thick ceramic fire bowl, the Pit Boss 24" Kamado Grill Ceramic BBQ gives you the flexibility to sear, roast, chargrill or smoke meats and vegetables, as well as bake pizzas and bread.

I'm quite happy buying a £50 BBQ, getting 2 years use out of it at a time, so this would need this is a 16 year investment!
Looks like NASA have lost something

Had one for 42 years going strong,produces moist well cooked food. Expensive to buy now though
I brought one just over a week ago. It’s not just a BBQ, it’s a smoker, pizza oven and much more. It’s about mastering the art of cooking cheaper cuts of meat the are marinated slowly for 12 hours plus. It’s an amazing bit of kit. So much negativity in this product when u don’t understand it’s potential

You had a Komado grill in 1976?
You must be joking

Chinese Kamado grills date back 3000 years! So having one since 1976 is hardly a surprise?!
Excellent price for one of these. Would I pay this much? No! But still, this is a great price for this particular model. It's for people who are more serious about their outdoor cooking. Pretty sure this size usually retails for around £800. Heat from me.
Have I missed something. Price is showing as £639.99?
These are absolutely awesome, my dad had 1 as I was growing up, yes they're expensive but these are the Aga of bbq's
Big green egg clone?

Kamado is a Japanese, with Korean origins, word that means "cooker” but interestingly never "grill" or "barbecue".
As I understand it the Kamado grill is a 1960s Californian invention based on a Japanese rice cooking pot but has only really evolved into this form quite recently. So I would be very interested to see a picture of your forty year old one to see what they used to be like.

Hot from me for the price and for the excellent value for money compared to other brands (Big Green, Kamado Joe, Monolith etc). Do I want one? Yes! Will I buy one? No as I will never use it enough to justify having it. Also, I remember last year Costco had dropped the price to £399 around April/May.

No chance. Big green egg are made in Mexico, these are Chinese.

No. Made in Mexico, these are from China.
The problem with these is there is no European distributor so if anything breaks (like the fire box) you can't get a replacement. Costco warranty is usually good so you would need to take the whole thing back for a refund /swap

Agree. All these kamados are are hardly any different though. I am quite sure that you can fit any other 24" Fire box on it or other parts, assuming you don't break the main body.

And you are right, big green egg is made in Mexico while pretty much all other kamados are made in China. Both countries should know well their ceramics so not concerned about quality as these are all pretty standard from what I read.

I was looking at a Monolith Junior as an addition to my usual summer bbq, and almost bought one until I saw this at Costco for a bit more and 4x the size (equivalent big green egg would cost a silly £1.3k). Thought of leaving a post here for future reference as I tried searching before deciding and there was little deals in this site.

I did some smoking today and this thing is a beast. Ran for 7+ hours on a bit of charcoal. We do bbq a lot at home, so having the ability to let it do his thing at 0C outside with little interaction is a great plus. Time will tell how the metal parts will last too, but they should as they look solid. A bit disappointed about the plastic table.

And yes, this is still expensive, but it much more than a grill if you make good use of it.

Not quite right I’m afraid. The modern kamado-style grill is based on ancient technology. The earliest cooking vessels were made of clay and found in China, dated to be over 3,000 years old. ... Eventually, it became known as a “kamado” which literally means “cooking range” or “stove” in Japanese. Source bbqguys

Isn't that pretty much what I said? Kamado means cooker, literally, it means "place for the cauldron." but not grill or barbecue.

Japanese barbecues are called Shichirin, which are often made of diatomaceous earth. I saw a program on NHK World about them and I was quite intrigued. Well I was until I saw how much they cost.

The term Kamado Grill is American. After WW2 GI's based in Japan brought home Mushikamado - which are portable charcoal rice steamers, but repurposed them as barbecue grills. Then in the 1960s entrepreneurs started importing Kamado grills, made to their specification, to sell as barbecue smokers to Americans in America. Then hinges were added, the ceramics were improved and over time they have evolved into things like the one in this deal.
