4 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Smokey Joe

Smoke Function

The Weber Smokey Joe has a smoke function (as does the Big Green Egg Large), but the Cobb Pro, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini 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, and so does the Big Green Egg Large, but the Cobb Pro, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini 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 81, however the Big Green Egg Large scored only 68, the Cobb Pro scored 73, the KAMADO Joe scored only 59 and the tepro Crystal Mini scored 77.

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, whereas Big Green Egg only has an average rating of 68.9%, Cobb only has an average rating of 76.5%, KAMADO only has an average rating of 52.9% and tepro only has an average rating of 63.5%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Weber Smokey Joe

Smaller Cooking Surface Diameter

The Weber Smokey Joe is a 370 cooking surface diameter barbecue. That's 90mm smaller than the Big Green Egg Large (460mm) and 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.

Vastly Smaller Cooking Area

The Weber Smokey Joe is a 1 cooking area barbecue. That's 613cm² smaller than the Big Green Egg Large (1,688cm²) and 340cm² bigger than the Cobb Pro (735cm²). More ...

The usable cooking area on a barbecue is a measurement of the physical size of the grill that can be used for cooking food.

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

$649 More Expensive

The Weber Smokey Joe is more expensive than the Cobb Pro by $599 and more expensive than the tepro Crystal Mini by $649.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Smokey Joe in the US is $729.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Cobb Pro

Portable

The Cobb Pro is portable, whereas the Big Green Egg Large, the KAMADO Joe, the tepro Crystal Mini and the Weber Smokey Joe are not. More ...
