Kamado Joe® Classic Stand Alone

Part No. 53701.3105 | Kamado Joe® Part No. KJ23NRSH
This product is no longer available for sale.

With their bold cherry-red finish, Kamado Joe grills invite plenty of attention, but attractive stainless steel upgrades make the Kamado Joe Classic Stand-Alone a stand out from the crowd. An 18” ceramic grill, the Classic Joe can cook almost anything. Crank up the heat to 700°F to sear steaks or fire bake pizza; settle into a comfortable 350°F to roast a succulent turkey; or hold a steady 250°F to smoke a brisket. However, what truly makes it special is an attractive combination of upgrades and accessories. The Kamado Joe Classic Stand Alone comes standard with a stainless steel cooking grate, stainless steel top vent, stainless steel handle, bands, and hinge assembly, and a stainless steel slide-out ash drawer. If all that shine weren't enough, it also includes must-have accessories like a deflector plate, a necessity for smoking BBQ, as well as a grate gripper and ash tool .(Learn how Kamado Joe compares to Big Green Egg)

  • Multi-level cooking is easy with the Divide and Conquer Flexible Cooking system.
  • Cleanup is mess-free with the patented slide-out stainless steel ash drawer and included ash tool.
  • Handle hot grates with the included Grill Gripper.
  • Monitor cooking temperatures with the built-in dome thermometer.

Kamado grills are designed to use lump charcoal and we carry only high-quality all-natural lump. We also offer an extensive line of accessories that allow you to do even more with your Kamado Joe.



When it comes to grills, I like ones that look good and perform well. Even more than that, though, I like ones that continue to look good and perform well for years. With an attractive combination of stainless steel upgrades and desirable accessories this Joe is anything but ordinary.

Reasons to Buy

For someone like me, the glisten and gleam of the Kamado Joe Classic Joe Stand-Alone is irresistible. My appreciation is two-fold. First, it looks good. Second, it’s durable and easy to care for. Kamado Joe adds that durable beauty to its Classic Stand Alone. The 18” grill comes with some great stainless steel upgrades, including the cooking grate, top vent, handle, bands, hinge assembly, and slide-out ash drawer. As if all that shine wasn’t enough for me, the Classic Stand-Alone also comes standard with the Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System and 2 half-moon deflector plates, a necessity for cooking low-and-slow BBQ, an ash tool, and grate gripper. While the stainless steel upgrades and included accessories are available with other kamado grills, they come at an additional cost that, all totaled, exceeds Kamado Joe’s price.

With their bold cherry-red finish, Kamado Joe Grills already attract plenty of attention, but the Classic Stand-Alone takes it up a notch. When the stainless steel catches the sun just right, it’s almost like the grill is winking at you, inviting you to stick around for an afternoon of food and fun. Or maybe that’s just me. Still, this is a good-looking grill, worthy of being dropped in a table or being included in an outdoor kitchen.

Reasons to Keep Shopping

With a primary cooking grid of 18”, the Kamado Joe Classic can feed 2-5 people. If you have a big family or entertain often, I suggest investing in extra cooking racks or a larger grill. Also, if you prefer convenience to shine, I’d consider the Big Joe with Cart, which replaces the stainless steel upgrades with a cart and shelves. Finally, like all ceramic grills, the Classic heats up fast, but if it gets too hot it can be difficult to lower the temperature. Those who want better temperature control might want to consider an automatic temperature controller like the Flame Boss or opt instead for a pellet grill.
