I bought this grill to take on a camping trip. I was debating the smaller gold vs the jumbo joe and I am so very glad i got the jumbo. The extra space was well worth it. I find the heat plenty easy to control with the bottom damper and just like my 22" i use at home it just works great. I have used it quite a bit since my camping trip as well since its big enough for every day cooking. Once football season starts I'm sure this grill will be getting a tailgating workout.

Too much is always better than not enough
I've got one 22" and two 18"Weber Smokey Mountains, along with a Kamado ceramic grill and a Lodge cast iron hibachi, but for a quick grill of burgers and hotdogs, the Jumbo Joe can't be beat for versatility. All my 18" accessories work with it and if you want to double your grill space, just pick up a Weber Hinged Cooking grate and stack the Joe's grate on top of it upside down. Plenty of space for indirect cooking and three-zone smoking. With a charcoal chimney and some Weber paraffin tablets, you can take on anything from sausages to low-and-slow ribs. If you're stuck on a desert island, this is the grill to take with you.
