8 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Smokey Joe

Lid

The Weber Smokey Joe has a lid, and so do the Cobb Pro, the Sunbeam GR8210 and the tepro Crystal Mini, but the UCO GR1 does not. More ...

Some barbecues come with a lid which can be closed over the top of grill whilst it is cooking.

A lid on a BBQ is extremely helpful for stopping the spread of smoke, as well as keeping the heat contained, meaning the food cooks quicker, and there's less chance of an accident. It's absolutely essential for trapping the smoke for hot-smoking food as well.

Bigger Cooking Surface Diameter

The Weber Smokey Joe is a 370 cooking surface diameter barbecue. That's 80mm bigger than the tepro Crystal Mini (290mm). More ...

The cooking surface diameter of a barbecue refers to how large the usable cooking surface on the BBQ is, measures in millimetres.

A larger surface area means there is more space to cook food on, meaning more food can be cooked at once.

Smoke Function

The Weber Smokey Joe has a smoke function, but the Cobb Pro, the Sunbeam GR8210, the tepro Crystal Mini and the UCO GR1 do not have this feature. More ...

The denotes whether the BBQ has the ability to channel the smoke from the coals into (usually) a separate area, to allow for smoking foods rather than cooking them.

Smoking meat and fish, whether hot or cold smoking, normally requires specialist gear and a lot of work. Having a smoking function on your BBQ makes it far easier to create delicious hot-smoked salmon.

Cool-Touch Handle

The Weber Smokey Joe features cool-touch handle, but the Cobb Pro, the Sunbeam GR8210, the tepro Crystal Mini and the UCO GR1 do not. More ...

A barbecue with cool touch handles is specially designed to be always cool to the touch, even when the main body of the BBQ is extremely hot.

Cool touch handles mean that the BBQ is far easier to move around and handle, and there is less of a chance of you accidentally burning yourself on hot metal. Which hurts. A lot.

Better Kagoo Score

The Weber Smokey Joe has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Cobb Pro scored only 74, the Sunbeam GR8210 scored only 66, the tepro Crystal Mini scored only 77 and the UCO GR1 scored only 66.

$18 Cheaper

The Weber Smokey Joe costs $91.42 less than the Cobb Pro, costs $60 less than the tepro Crystal Mini and costs $18 less than the UCO GR1.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this barbecue and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, whereas Cobb only has an average rating of 75.3%, Sunbeam only has an average rating of 57.5%, tepro only has an average rating of 68.8% and UCO only has an average rating of 54.9%.

1 Reason Against for Choosing the Weber Smokey Joe

Over Two Years Older

The Weber Smokey Joe is older than the Sunbeam GR8210 by two years.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Smokey Joe in the US is $20.00 and in total we found 3 prices for it.
