A kamado is just the name of a ceramic grill. The BGE, or Big Green Egg, is the older and bigger name in kamado grills. The Kamado Joe started more recently and has been up and coming as the challenger.
The bright colors and styles of the BGE make it a recognizable brand for backyard barbecue parties. The Big Green Egg was founded in 1974. It’s backed by a lifetime warranty, and comes in sizes from 10 to 29”.
The Kamado Joe popped up around 2009 and is one of the faster-growing names in the ceramic grill space. It is also backed by a lifetime warranty, and comes in sizes from 16 to 24”.
