They may be no other single item the enamors people more than the ceramic cookers. The fans are numerous and rabid.

Parts are available and you may find that rehabbing all of them, both satisfying and profitable if you do not need three.

Kamados are great! The old clay kamados don't have the range that the Big Green Egg and other ceramic cookers have. The old ones are really only good up to about 350* before they start cracking. Restoring them is worth it if you need a smoker.

I'd be very interested in buying one if you wanted to sell. I'd love to restore one and use it!

I would bling that thing out to the max. Put some nice graffiti or turn it into a large faberge egg.

Well I think 2 of them would be up for rehab
one has cracks that we sealed a long time ago but still works
and the old ones cant take the high heat .
maybe i will do a build with 2 side by side in a framed unit on wheels.
