7 Reasons For for Choosing the Weber Smokey Joe

Lid

The Weber Smokey Joe has a lid (as do the Cobb Pro, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini), but the Everdure FUSION does not have this feature. 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 has a cooking surface diameter of 370mm, but the tepro Crystal Mini is only a 290mm cooking surface diameter barbecue (80mm smaller). 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 Everdure FUSION, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini do not. 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 Everdure FUSION, the KAMADO Joe and the tepro Crystal Mini do not feature this benefit. 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 78, however the Cobb Pro scored 74, the Everdure FUSION scored only 60 and the KAMADO Joe scored only 60.

Cheaper by $53

The Weber Smokey Joe costs $172.89 less than the Cobb Pro, costs $1,271.90 less than the Everdure FUSION, costs $1,252.89 less than the KAMADO Joe and costs $52.90 less than the tepro Crystal Mini.

Better Brand

Weber barbecues have an average rating of 95%, whereas Cobb only has an average rating of 77.5%, Everdure only has an average rating of 59.7%, KAMADO only has an average rating of 52.4% and tepro only has an average rating of 71%.

1 Reason Against for Choosing the Weber Smokey Joe

Older by Over One Year

The Weber Smokey Joe is 15 months older than the Everdure FUSION. The Weber Smokey Joe is the same age as the KAMADO Joe.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Smokey Joe in the US is $27.10 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
