Really enjoying the Kamado Joe. It is remarkably easy to use and as you can 'turn them off' when you finish cooking they use way less charcoal than I expected. Having read a few books on using Kamado ovens and how versatile they are I had been sceptical, but now, having baked and steamed food as well as 'low and slow smoking", roasting, braising and searing I am convinced. Just need a wok and I can stirfry too. Finally, the slide out ash drawer makes cleaning after use a very quick and easy job. Even though it is winter I am outside cooking 5 or 6 times a week.
