This Kamado Joe Grill is nearly $200 off for Memorial Day weekend

·3-min read

Grilling is a sport for some, and with Memorial Day finally here, the season is just beginning. Making sure you have the best equipment is the key to success when you're out in the backyard flipping burgers. Of course, there are plenty of grills to shop from with an assortment of bells, whistles and fuel sources, but there's nothing like a good old charcoal grill — it's simple, easy to use and it gives your favorite foods the best flavor. Don't have one yet? Well, you're in luck! The Kamado Joe Jr. Portable Charcoal Grill is on sale for $299 (was $499). We've done the math and, well, that's $200 in savings — that's 40% off! And if you shop now, you can have it by Memorial Day.

Shoppers say this portable charcoal grill is the "best they've ever used." It cooks up delicious food in minutes!

The Joe Jr. sits 13.5 inches high on a cast iron stand which holds it securely. It's crafted with thick walls and a heat-resistant shell that keeps smoke and moisture contained so that food cooks evenly. There's even a cast-iron air vent that regulates temperature and a built-in temp gauge so you can easily heat the grill up. It also includes a handy stainless steel cooking grate that props your food up while your roast it over the coals. And if you really want to deck your new grill out, you can grab a few accessories from Kamado.

Aside from the grill's impressive cooking abilities, shoppers love that it's portable. It weighs just over 75 pounds, versus some that weigh anywhere from 120 to over 800 pounds for some gas models. Not exactly ideal for taking on the road.

Joe, Jr., however, is an ideal traveling companion. Just ask this guy: "Bought this to take camping 'cause I use a Kamado Big Joe at the house. Wound up using Jr. at the house for smaller meal cooks. All the benefits of Kamado Joe, but in a smaller package. Comes to temp quickly and easy heat control."

"Most magnificent grill I've ever cooked on!" another grillmaster said.

"First Kamodo, and I love it," raved this newbie. "So much nicer than regular BBQ. like a Weber. I never was much for the big grills, so the small size is ideal for me. Can do everything for my small family I need to do."

The grill is easy to transport and take anywhere — from camping to the beach.

Said this family man: : "Everything tastes better when cooked with this grill. Doesn't need to refill charcoals for hours cooking at 400 degrees. Temperature control is precise. It's the right size for two adults and two kids. It's light enough to be moved around, which is necessary from time to time."
