    Looks like an old Imperial Kamado, older ones were from Japan and were sometimes brought over to America by U.S. military after WWII and Korean War.  The Kamado in the picture looks as if it could be dated B.B.G.E.  (Before Big Green Egg)

    Still being made but I believe now from China.

  • Thats what it is.  An old girlfriend of mines dad had one that he did bring back from the war. but he only used like 5 charcole bricketes in the bottom and I swear  he cooked on that thing all night long.
  • And thats what impressed me about it till I found out about the BGE
