  1. Saw this grill at meijer for $299. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this bbq. It seemed sturdy and well made. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.

    The one I lifted the lid on seemed to look right but the lid was of some sort of hollow construction.
  3. I thought about getting one of these, but after some email with the guys at BBQguru, they said they hadn't been able to keep it below 360 degrees even with all the dampers closed, so I passed on it.

    There have been some pretty good reviews of it though.
  4. Thanks for they replies guys. I ended up getting the Big Red Kamado Kooker from Menards on sale for $279 pics coming soon. I seasoned it at 400 degrees for about 1.5 hours and then later that evening cooked some chicken at about 275 to 300. I have been told that my model is the newer version and that they have made some improvements on the older models. What the improvements are I do not know. But I will be posting some pics of the grill and food soon.
