Seems like over kill to me. Kamados are already great bbqs, and hold temp well from what i have read. Wouldnt really think a pellet power one would be necessary.

I had a look at another video on YouTube which came up in the list and it was quite good. I don't doubt the product, just that the first video showed cooking lid up in all but one part, which is just crazy when you are trying to demonstrate what it can do. I hope you didn't think I was knocking the product or your post, quite the opposite, I'm a big kamado fan and I think a pellet version is really interesting. :)

Not at all. I have nothing to do with the product , it's interesting on another thread that questions the future of bbq and how technology is playing a part . I would have never thought a pellet kamado .it would be a fun gadget and something different , but I still prefer my Saffire .

Had a look at the video.Interesting hybrid.One question, how much does it cost to feed it with pellets as opposed to charcoal?

Charcoal in a kamado is about the cheapest bbq to run. The cost of pellets in the US is a lot less than here and hopefully that will change but pellets would be a lot more expensive than lump charcoal. I would imagine 2 or even 3 times as much but that's a guess, not based on any experience with a pellet kamado.

Yeah, at least 3 years that I am aware of Dave, we contacted them in late 2011 about a Performance Test. They wanted us to buy the unit, after I stopped laughing I said we would pass. A lot of Money for a small amount of cooking area!

Maybe but I'm thinking they would be much more efficient on pellet usage since ceramic would hold the heat better.
