Re: Kamado choices in 2020

Hi Davo, Thanks for your reply and suggestions. Yep, already on the WSC facebook page, as well as the kamado one. Maybe I'll ask there, but the conversation seems to be mostly about actual cooking than purchasing. I asked this question on a US forum, and so far every reply has been about the poor cu...

Kamado choices in 2020

Hi all, So a few months after buying a lovely Weber gas BBQ I want to now get a charcoal one. Looking at a kamado style as they seem to do well with grilling and smoking. There are the obvious options of Kamado Joe, and Big Green Egg. As well as the Weber Summit Charcoal as a non ceramic contender. ...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

Hi wilsonj Davo's suggestion to get a seperate flat plate bbq is a very good one. I believe you can buy 2 burner fold up flat plate bbq's at bunnings for $200 new. Second hand should get one for $50 or less. You could use that for campinp too if you go. Best of both worlds then. Cheers hjl Hi hjl, ...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

Hi wilsonj I believe you would or should have got a flat plate with your genesis. So that should cover a lot of bases. Did you get a cookbook with your new bbq. ? That would guide you on using the new bbq. I think you have made a wise choice. Bbq is what Weber do. Enjoy. Cheers hjl Hi hjl, Yes, the...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

For those interested, I ended up with a Weber Genesis 415. Looked at quite a few, but the Weber seems to have the best support and warranty, was reasonably priced for the size and ticked most of the boxes. Went to BBQ Galore and was not impressed. Felt very "salesy". I'm sure each store is different...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

Thanks Titch I'm in country SA though, but I'll look around. General question about the Turbo elite RQT. It seems this is a very polarising product. It either gets a 1 out of 10 or 9 out of 10. QTF ? (little joke there) Generally though there is a severe lack of reviews for a product that has been a...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

So further research has lead me to a couple choices. WeberQ3200 or Genesis 2 E455 Ziegler and Brown Turbo classic 4 burner or elite 5 burner. Second option is a premium over the Weber I know. Is the RQT much better, or mostly different ? I read many bad reviews of BBQ Galore. Even with a 10ye warran...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

Thanks for the fast replies! I was thinking flat plates were better for cooking sausages ? Or is everyone cooking on these on grills ? Thanks also for the tip on the grillgate, looks interesting. So, does no one cook predominately on plates ? I really wanted something like 700mm+ of flat plate, and ...

BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

Hi all, I recently retired a beefeater 4 burner after about 22 years. And am now in need of a replacement. Turns out I probably need to do this this week. I have to admit to being a little lost right now, so any advice welcomed. Generally I find I am cooking snags, marinated steaks and kebabs, but a...
