We're Buying a Komodo Kamado....

Many of you may remember that we were given a damaged Komodo Kamado cooker back in mid-2006 and that we did a product review of it. Well, we decided it was high time that we purchased a new Komodo Kamado cooker and sell the cooker that appeared in the review. At press time, the tile choice we probably will make is shown in the photo where we have photoshopped a factory image into a picture of our deck.

So what brought us to this decision? A couple of things. First we wanted an undmaaged cooker with tile of our choosing to grace our back deck. It's been nice with the 2006 black textured 23-inch OTB supreme, but it would never have been our first choice of style or color. We have always wanted a tiled cooker and of course, to choose our own color. Second, there have been a number of significant improvements since 2006 such as interlocking base and dome, food grade silicone seal, and an elastomeric tile adhesive. We decided we wanted to have these improvements on our cooker. (Reason 3 is a secret, but it will be revealed all in good time!)

Some folks might be a bit wary of spending so much money on an item made so far from home. We have said it before and we'll say it again. Komodo Kamado is the real deal. From the very beginning they have shown that they are dedicated to superior products and superior service. Period. Cast your worries aside. Komodo Kamado will take care of you, no if's, no but's. So, we are excited about getting a new Komodo Kamado. About as excited as when we purchased our first Big Green Egg ten years ago. Keep an eye on the web page for an updated product review this fall or winter after we take delivery.  It's time we put our money where our mouth is and the time is now.

One final note. In the process of selling the black Komodo Kamado, we received several inquiries, one of which was most distressing. One person thought this cooker was made by Kamado, the infamous company that has acquired a reputation for taking deposits but not delivering cookers, and ignoring customer pleas for warranty service and replacement parts. Komodo Kamado is not Kamado. You can visit the Komodo Kamado website at

Ever since getting to cook on Chris Lilly's a few years ago, I have LOVED the Komodo Kamado. The craftsmanship on these is just amazing. I tried to steal his, but....well you know how heavy these are:)
