New kamado at bunnings similar to BSK

Post by Shane_H » Tue Jul 16, 2013 7:21 pm

On my wander around the bbq section at bunnings today I spoted a new kamado they are stocking. Nice to see the country getting more into there slow cooked meats :)

Was $499 too, guess there would be a market for ppl who don't want to spend $700+ on a ceramic one. Although the quality didn't seem there, lid felt light but I don't know wat to expect from a steel unit as I have a bear grills.

Can't upload a pic off my phone so ill do it from my computer tomorow if anyone is interested??

Cheers
Shane

That sounds like it might be the Chargriller Akorn?

The Acorn has a massive following in the US, good to see another option in the market.

If Brunnings ever special it I may be tempted, would be cool to have one I can take camping with ease!

Obviously Port Melbourne is not into BBQ, my bunnings doesn't have either the kamodo, or the offset... Lucky BBQ Plus is around the corner.

It doesn't look too bad, but for an extra $139, I would definitely move up to the Vision Kamado from Costco.

If they are $350usd on amazon, bunnings have them for $499

That's a pretty good price!
