On my way to pickup my 94 year old grandmother in law, turn the corner and in the trash pile is this...


Don't get me wrong it's in bad shape, the base is in good shape but the top and the firebox is messed up.


It has a 15 inch grid inside it, and like I said the firebox is in 4 pieces which I could fix.


Is it an Egg or a Kamando?

    Man that looks old but repairable.
    This is the greatest signature EVAR!

    Looks like one I bought in an estate sale a few years back. Mine was an Imperial Kamado. If it an old one the max temp is around 350-400F.

    It is either an Imperial Kamado Tradional style or a "Hibachi Pot" Kamado. If it has a 15" grate it is a Medium. If you are good with jigsaw puzzles and handy, you can easily refurbish it, but it will never be as versatile as a ceramic Egg.

    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.
