        A year and a half from when that article described it, fairly accurately, the Kettle Joe is supposed to be shipping to retail this month. There have been a couple threads on here including a prototype/preproduction test done by Alphonse

      Thanks for the link tenphases, it is a very interesting article. The article linked says, "The SlōRoller ensures 85 percent of the cooking space in these grills remains within five degrees of each other."

      As Uncle Bob pointed out, I have done some cooks on the KJ Kettle Joe. Early on, I thought the concept of the SloRoller might have some merit but had doubts it could achieve as much as they claimed. So my first cooks on the KJ Kettle Joe were intended to test the SloRoller. I was a bit surprised at how well it works.

      Here are a couple photos of the very first cook. These wings were not moved from their initial placement on the grate and were flipped once. I remember thinking that the flip wasn't really necessary. To my surprise they were cooked consistently and evenly across the grate.

      Wings loaded:
