If you're looking for a quality Kamado BBQ Smoker you can't go past this one! It's a sturdy ceramic fire box with 22 inches of pure, uninterrupted grilling space all mounted on top of a stainless steel stand with lockable heavy-duty wheels. Weighing in at a hefty 85kg, you know this sumo sizzler is da bizness.
The Kamado creates the ideal environment for efficiently burning charcoal. Superior heat retention from the ceramic construction ensures food cooks faster and heat is more evenly distributed than with traditional metal BBQ systems.
4 cooking modes allow you to sear, grill and smoke (even bake!) And you can use it as a pizza oven to get those truly mouth-watering wood-fired flavours. The aluminium alloy top vent gives total control over air flow allowing you to control and set the ideal cooking temperature which you can monitor with the built in thermometer.
Bamboo drop side-shelves are a great addition and handy spot to rest ingredients and utensils before and after cooking but also for that all-important beverage during!
General Kamado Tips:
Kamados are slow to heat up, so allow plenty of time.
When they reach the temperature - yep - the superior heat retention means it just keeps on 'keeping on'.
So... don't overheat it past your desired cooking temp because, you guessed it, it takes a while to cool down!
Use the air-vents to speed or slow the heating process and to maintain temperature. If you're serious about temperature control, we recommend sourcing your own high temp gasket tape. It's less fiddly than it sounds and you'll soon be playing that thing like a maestro.
Cook with direct heat for searing and trad barbies, or indirect heat for low and slow Texas-style smoking. (Heat Deflector sold separately.)
For safety reasons, don't remove the lid in one sudden movement. Open the top vent then crack the lid open gradually to prevent a wall of flame, heat or smoke leaping out at ya.

Warranty and Other Important Details:
1) Beware: kamado-cooking can be habit forming. Thankfully, your friends and family will be too busy eating to stage an intervention.
2) Crazing is a cosmetic spider-web-style pattern caused by the glaze and clay ceramic expanding at different rates in the heat. Don't worry, it's not a defect - in fact, all kamados have this.
3) The ceramic body is covered by an extended 6 year warranty but normal wear and tear, cosmetic scratches, chips, and dings are excluded. However, remember that we will always try to help you out if you have a problem. But if you run out of meat or brewskis thanks to the well-known "Kamado Popularity Effect", you will be on your own.
AND READ WHAT SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY:
Great BBQ, well constructed, looks and operates exactly like other BBQs I was looking at for twice the price. Totally recommend purchasing. Thanks Container Door! - Antony N
I am very happy with the Kamado grill I ordered through Container Door. Amazing price and top quality product. Man these bbqs are extremely efficient with charcoal and great at locking in moisture. - Christopher
This is the best bbq I have ever used. Temperature control is so great you can go from smoking mussels/cheeses/chickens etc to cooking pork roasts in about 10 minutes. The taste of the food is awesome and the range of things you can cook is limited by your mind - try google for recipes it's like going down the rabbit hole! - Michael
Awesome product, amazing quality at a fraction of same item retail. - Carl D
A fantastic price for a great value product. A very good option for those getting into charcoal bbq-ing when you don’t want to spend thousands for a big named product. I’ll be looking forward to picking up the matching heat deflector plate when available next to round out the cooking options. (Also worth grabbing the matching Kamado cover from Container Door as its a steal!) - Dave C
Love it, can't imagine bbq'ing without it - John
It is great. Easily controlled and cooks to perfection, either high heat for pizzas, (had up to 400 degrees c) and able to hold temp there and also great for low and slow (I am going to get some heat resistant felt and seal around lower vent as even when fully closed it still is letting air through (only minor issue). Was worried that as it was such a good price that quality might be an issue but have been pleasantly surprised as to the build and value for money this product is. - Brett K
ABSOLUTELY THRILLED!! Tried cooking all sorts of things and no muck ups yet. Doubt there will be now. So easy to regulate temp and good to be able to reuse charcoal lumps not burnt away. A top piece of gear. - Warwick
