When you see how well they regulate heat (the key, I'm told) you can see customers (He owns an ACE Hardware, btw) returning to buy one. People plan their Saturdays around these events, and call to find out what they are cooking that day. It's hilarious. Needless to say, people end up buying hardware while they are there, too.
We have been trying to find a dealer who has the new mini-max for sale. This is the perfect size for taking camping. My husband has contacted three dealers in our area. None had any idea what the mini-max is. They said they would check, but none have gotten back in touch with him. Does anyone carry them for purchase? Has your brother heard of them or carry them?

Check around and see if you can find a Kamado Joe dealer. Their version is the Joe Jr. which is what I have, you'll save some money and it comes will all the accessories you need.

My husband found a mini-max at a dealer in town, so we pick it up tomorrow. We will let you all know how we like it for camping.

A little jealous of the ceramic cookers, especially in the winter months coupled with the wind.I have been a tried and true Weber guy for a long time at home and on the road. Have 2 18" WSM's, Performer with Gas assist and the new jumbo joe for the road. I have added temp controllers for the long cooks and have gotten 16 hours out of one load of Kingsford on the smokey mountain. Been able to crank my Kettle up to 600 for pizzas and such but the allure of the Ceramic still creeps in.....

Do you brine the turkey? I was thinking about trying one for Easter.
