This is a Ceramic Kamado grill similar to the Green Egg or Kamado Joe but for less than half the price. I believe it is fairly identical to the Vision B series sold at Sams Club but larger. This Grill normally sells at Costco for $599 and on Amazon for $799 [amazon.com]
. It is also available for $549 on Costco's website [costco.com]
as this includes shipping this fairly heavy item. This grill has an instant rebate of $200 and ended up costing me $432 out the door with Texas sales tax. The $399.99 price is good until 7/10. This is only $100 more than the very popular Char-Griller Acorn Kamado but instead has a Ceramic firebox! I went in this evening and there were no boxes out on the floor, however they had several on the top shelf. Here is a forum for owners of this grill with tons of information Kamado Guru [kamadoguru.com]
The Pit Boss Ceramic Series barbecue creates the ideal environment for cooking with lump charcoal. Thick ceramic walls capture heat and emit it evenly, immersing your food in an environment that seals in juices and enriches flavor. Using the calibrated top damper and bottom slide vent, you can control heat to slow smoke ribs, bake pizza, roast turkey, grill burgers, char vegetables, or sear steak. The Kamado dual-tier, stainless steel cooking grids offer 662 sq. inches of versatile cooking space. The grill features heavy-duty hardware that keeps the ceramic body secure and provides a lasting product: the spring-loaded hinge allows smooth opening and closing of the lid, shock absorbing plunger offers added protection against slamming, and the locking wheels allow you to position the grill safely. There's plenty of space for serving on the bamboo side shelves, which also fold-down for storage.
