Anyone got / seen these? Are they any good or just cheap materials.. debating a Weber kettle with cart but this is a whole lot cheaper!

Being porcelain coated means it's essentially the same construction as a weber...

Certainly the blurb implies to me it's a decent quality bit of kit.

My Pro Q is also porcelain coated and is actually holding up better to a decade outside without cover than my weber kettle...

I've ordered it, so will report back

Not very experienced with much more than basic grilling so it'll be a learning curve!

Is that for the BGE? If so where's it from?

I have a kamado Joe and the above is a Let’sQ rotisserie from Meat Smoke Fire. They sell ones for BGEs too.

Found another one that is a bit cheaper still which looks identical to mine: https://www.grdengrills.co.uk/products/rotisserie?...

The knock offs are formed from sheet metal whereas the real deal is, I believe, cast aluminium.

I also can’t get the thing for holding the deflector plates and grills in at the same time as this, I don’t know if the real one is the same or not.

How do you find the Kettle Joe? Seems like a great bbq and a lot nicer price than the ceramics.

Really like it so far. Holds heat really well. This is 2nd longer cook I have done on it.

Build quality seems spot on

Seems like perfect halfway house to me

It was a Christmas present that arrived in May.

My first homemade ribs of the year have gone on, aiming for about 7pm.
My initial thought is that I've packed the smokebox too tightly but we'll see

I have this very thermometer - it's OK for the price but does have an annoying tendency to drop connection briefly every now and then - pretty sure this is more like a 'normal' price and the 50% off is a bit of a red herring but it was bought as a present for me so not 100% sure.

Pretty good value but you do get what you pay for.

Way to piss on my bonfire bbq!

I'll see how it goes. £30 isn't much, but I want to see how I get on doing slow cooks. If I enjoy it, I'll spend a bit of dosh etc.

I have an IB-T2X and an IBT-4X and never had an issue with any of them.

edit to add: Not sure if you aware of the Inkbird support FB page but they are very proactive to any issues, I had a problem with an instant read breaking and they sorted out a replacement within 2 days.

The 2X normally sells for about £25 so if you got this for £30 I'd say that was a pretty good deal.

Hmm, any ideas?

I've been asked to do a bbq for our bootcamp fitness group. It'll be at the rugby club pavilion/bar we train at, so all good.

However, I only use charcoal. Will do a pork shoulder during the day to take there, and my aquaforno to grill kebabs there.

Any ideas for a quick/safe way of clearing and transporting the coals once I've finished cooking?

Quick bit of advice please chaps....

Bought an Onlyfire GBS cats sear grid ....

https://www.holydogwater.com/product/B087GFY5K7/

Is it likely to need seasoning before use ?

If so, best method ?

Cook at home, then double wrap the meat in tin foil and put in a cooler box, and take it to the event. It'll stay hot for hours.
