    Lol.  I didn’t watch the video, but there is no way.  You could make an argument for KJ at least being as good, maybe better. Kamado Komodo is probably better, but it is 4 times more expensive.  I can’t imagine there are 5 more brands worth mentioning in the same breath as BGE.

    CR hates the BGE, they always have. Probably because the loser scum reviewing them cant afford to buy one for themselves. Are there better Kamados? Ehh... A KJ used to be a "better value" but now they are equal in price to a BGE with added accessories. At least where I live you can get a BGE with all the accessories that the KJ comes with for about $80 bucks more. That to me doesn't make the KJ that much better of a deal. The Costco knockoffs and the vision grills that I have personally looked at felt cheap. A KK in my opinion is a Bedazzled Egg that costs 3 times the price for not really any better "cooking" ability. The only one that I would say might be better is the Weber Summit.

    I never thought about this, but I think you're exactly right.  This explains why they always have Mercedes Benz at the bottom of their car ratings too.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Ya I know I just can't quite square it with the $1300 KJ coming out on top.  Something just isn't adding up.

    I was a victim of a pig attack on my foot. Actually felt his mouth on my toes as I pulled away. Pig (Walter) is a pet of a neighbor. He was crossing the street (at a pokey rate) as I was walking up. He had done his business and headed back to his owner. I stopped to let him cross, when he stopped and approached me. He sniffed my foot from about 8-10 inches away, and then lunged. No injury from the pig, but pulled my hamstring with my quick movement of my leg. I figure I had spilled / dropped something on my foot preparing eating dinner. You can’t make this $hit up.

    Yawn ...whatever. WRAL is a mere shadow of the station it once was. I know several of the past and present on air personalities, besides issues with facts they have major personnel issues. As fars as CR, do not even consider them as a source anymore.

    One of the problems with consumer reports is they don't always use criteria that is rational to the product.
    But I would like to see a side by side by side comparison of how a Vision Grill looks after 20 years. Ha Ha

    Lot's of people feel the KJ is a better deal. I personally don't. All in for my Large EGG(incl/ PS, Grid Gripper, Nest, Charcoal, and Starters)plus the CGS store PSWOO and Extension shelf I was around $1,350ish. Unless I've missed something the KJ doesnt cook any better than an egg. But the idea that a Chargriller Acorn is "better" than the Egg should tell anyone all they need to know about this CR Review.

    Well my brothers Vision Kamado has been under a Cover and sitting underneath a carport and started rusting after about 6months. So there is that one small sample.

    Does your neighbor know you are an owner of the worst kamado (according to CR) ever made and a purveyor of fine pork cuisine?

    Americas Test Kitchen / Cooks Illustrated has always trashed the BGE and lump charcoal. 

    Weber kettle and gasser always wins......gotta apparently to the people they want to sell magazine to I guess.
