I was dismayed with all the grills at the $200 price point. All of them were thin, wasting a lot of fuel. I almost went with the Home Depot Memorial Day special, but am so glad I didn't.
This Kamado rocks! I'll be able to smoke, bake, and grill in one efficient package. Also, it appears that recent builds have rectified some of the earlier gasket issues (and the build quality of the one I received is great.)
Add a filler item to use a $50 off $250 coupon (if you have one.)
