I am currently rolling with a Komodo Kamada 23" as pictured here:
This is basically what a big green egg wants to be when it grows up. You can check it out at http://www.komodokamado.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.
Here is what it did this past weekend for Memorial Day- Pork Butt, Spare Ribs, Chorizo, and some Bacon wrapped Jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and a grape tomato.
Finished the Butt with a little Eastern NC Q sauce, and glazed the ribs with a little raspberry chipotle BBQ sauce that I made. The hungry hoards rushed me, so I didn’t get any finished pics, but this is right before it all came off the grill.
It’s bigger. The grates also have a really cool design. The bottom rack is cut out on the front side about 4 inches which allows you to add wood and or charcoal while it’s cooking. The middle rack is actually hinged so that a 4 inch trap door swings up allowing access to anything on the bottom rack. The top rack has handles that let you very quickly aand easily lift it our. All ofthe metal is heavyduty stainless. You can easily throw a brisket, a couple pork butts and 6 or 8 racks of ribs on htis at the same time- enough to feed 30-40 easily, maybe more.
It’s freestanding and on wheels, and at 600 lbs, that makes it a bit easier to move.
It looks cool.
Probably a few more features I am missing. I am sure there is a list somewhere over on the komodokamado forums or webpage that lists the various features. I’ll try to assemble a more complete list later.
As far as cooking goes, it is the exact same concept as the Green Egg, this is just the luxury version of it.
