A Rocket Stove cooks outside the flue. A Cobb cooks inside the dome. Two totally different kinds of cookers. The only similarity is both use a burning fuel.

Saving money isn't a bad thing, but it's not the only reason a person would want to boondock. I personally have little interest in staying in campgrounds, parked right next to and in the midst of who knows how many others. I want to boondock as a way to get away from "it all" and to park right next to and in the midst of nature. We'll save money, no doubt, but that's not the reason we'll do it.

Wasn't busting on ya, just saying we all have different reasons and agendas.

I was wondering about price and where to buy

It had a rubber foot missing and no box. I figured, if nothing else, it could be a parts grill. Ended up getting a foot for free and use it when I want to cook additional food, using a different accessory.

Use it at home all the time.
I've found them on Amazon but there doesn't seem to be any reviews so I was suspicious of the quality and source. I know that a lot of these types of things can be the subject of foreign knock-offs and then you get junk. Amazon has three colors of the Pro Cobb size (red, blue, and white) and a slightly shorter one they're calling Cobb Compact. The footprint of the compact is the same but the base is half the height for space saving. Some of these are reported as discontinued by the manufacturer. Any recommendations?

I got mine from Amazon when the USA distributor was going out of business. I bought all the accessories, thinking I might never be able to get them again. Yes, it was expensive - but I was looking for a way to cook outside without carrying those little disposable propane canisters. The Cobb works as advertised and has been fun to use. The only downside for us is when there's a burn ban that extends to charcoal.

Footnote: Of course, there's a new USA distributor now and all the accessories are readily available.

Yes. You must pack it carefully, but they all fit.

I just got my first accessory, the fenced roasting rack. I think it looks like something that should be included in the base package.

I've finally been able to take the time to access the COBB North American web page to see the videos as well as a few of the You Tube videos and we're sold on this deal. I've sent Cobb an email requesting a date for the entire kit. We'll see how they are to respond.

Well, they haven't responded yet and I found the Kitchen-in-a-Bag available for the same price with free shipping at Two Brothers Grillin' located in Jackson, TN so I ordered it just now. They also have most of the accessories available. You might want to check them out here: Home - Two Brothers Grillin'

Do any of you Cobb owners find it hard to clean?
It is a pain to clean, but you do not have to clean some of the parts after every use. I try to use it all day for my meals and then clean. Eggs/sausage/toast in am and burgers/dogs or a roast in pm. Then clean.

Our new Kitchen-in-a-Bag just arrived: the complete Cobb Grill. I had it delivered to my work address for security reasons so I'm not going to open the box until I get home. It's like Christmas again!

Wowed by exceptional customer service

Well, our Cobb Grill arrived last week and I was thrilled to run home after work and unbox it. We bought our Cobb from Two Brothers BBQ in Tennessee and they shipped very fast.

I was unhappy to find my new toy was dented. It seems that the shipper man handled it in transit and the one of the handles on the wok/fry pan was pushed in and dented the pan where the handle attached. The damage wouldn't affect the functionality of the product but I was still upset because you expect perfect for that price.

I emailed 2Brothers late on Friday night and didn't expect to hear from them until Monday after the open of business. Shocked me outta my socks when I had a response to my email within 30 minutes requesting pictures of the damage. I sent them six shots of the dent as well as the cartons. 10 minutes later, Friday night at about 8:00 pm, my phone rang and a real person called to confirm that they intended to take care of everything. Seems that they check every single order before shipping to verify that the products are perfect before they leave their door. I will be receiving a new wok/fry pan as replacement. I'm a customer for life.

THAT is how exceptional customer service is achieved!

We found them to be extremely helpful, especially when we were trying to put together all the accessories, when the original company went out off business.

The rubs they sell are pretty good, too.
