Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Been looking at both grills and they appear to be about except for the price. Does any one have an experience with that may help me to make a choice. Additionall, are the accessories interchangeable? Any help would be appreciated.

  • i have cooked on both and can tell you there is no difference. i personally have three bge's . and if i was to start all over i would buy kamado.

  • yaslei, are you talking about the $3600 Komodo Kamado? I should think it would be obvious that the accessories don't swap between the two. Or are you talking about Kamado Joe? Imperial Kamado? The Primo Round Kamado?

    I bet he is talking about the Kamado Joe. It is the same size as the Lg BGE. KJ uses a double gasket on the top and bottom and also around the top. Draw your own conclusion. The air hole at the bottom of the fire box is smaller. otherwise there about the same

  • Komodo Kamado's make me drool.. Sure they cook the same as a BGE but they are piece of art.....

    However, If I spent $3600 on one, my wife would ensure my cohones were pieces of art hanging on the wall..

    On the other older forum we did not do ceramic product comparisons. Are there different rules now??

  • Yes, it will be interesting to see if that "tradition" continues.

  • I have both a large BGE and an old Kamado #4 (from the 60's). I got the Kamado #4 at a garage sale for 20 bucks, so the price was right. Since getting it, I added some BGE accessories to it (egg nest, top vent, and dome thermometer). They both work great, but the BGE has a lot more control and gets hotter with better fire box and lower vent. I am sure that the newer Kamado grills are much better than the one I have from the 60's. The old one seemed to be made from cement and re bar.
