Had the kamado for about 3 weeks now. After taking longer to get here than expected (no one’s fault, just the damn weather), setup was an absolute breeze and took me about 15 minutes, only needing help to put the grill in its stand. I’ve never had a charcoal grill AT ALL, so I took the first week slow, did a few dry runs just to learn this thing and see how it behaves in the bitter cold where I live. After I figured it out, we’ve had the best food I’ve ever churned out of a grill/smoker. I bought this as a complement to my pellet grill, and am surprised and delighted that it will be replacing the pellet grill altogether. The smoke flavor you can achieve on this is outstanding and it’s so easy to cook anything with the SnS or just as a traditional kamado. Would recommend to absolutely anyone.
I have only used this grill 3 times since receiving it, but I can tell I’m going to love this Kamado. Got rid of a pellet grill, kettle grill and this will be my only grill.
After a Year of Ownership
Hi - I wanted to return and give my impressions after a year of using my SnS Deluxe Kamado. My kamado is still in perfect condition after regular year-round use. I've cooked everything from pork shoulder at 225 to pizza at 700+. I haven't really used the slow-n-sear insert in it yet, as that seems to live in my kettle, but I'll be sure to give it a try at some point. I'm very happy with how easy it is to control temps with this kamado. In the past week, I cooked my Thanksgiving turkey in it at a steady 325 for just over 5 hours. It had plenty of room for an 18 pound bird under the dome. I then smoked some jerky my son made out of Canada Goose breast at 200 degrees for a couple of hours. Once you've familiarized yourself with the vent settings for various temperatures, the kamado just sets there and does its thing. I have a thermostatic fan controller that I've used for longer cooks, but I think I could get by without it. The longest cook I've done was an enormous pork shoulder that took 19 hours - I didn't wrap it and it took forever to get through the stall. I only had to add charcoal once during that whole cook. I'm very pleased with my purchase. Everything in the package is top quality. The stainless grills and accessories are still as new - so much better than the nickel-plated mild steel you get from some other manufacturers. I'm happy to recommend the kamado from SnS to anyone.
Great Customer Service!
I had a grill shipped and it was cracked at the bottom when I received it, most likely due to shipping. My wife emailed the company the second she saw it and they sent me a whole new grill! I did not expect the level of care and immediate attention that they exhibited! I don’t ever plan on getting another grill. But if I did I would buy from them again because I know that this company and products are high quality.
Hey! We are so sorry for the inconvenience you may have experienced. Thank you for your purchase and for taking the time to leave a review. We hope you enjoy your new cooker! Please let us know if you ever have any other concerns or questions. Thanks again!
Outstanding flavor and texture
I purchased the deluxe Kamado grill in August 2020 and picked it up at the shipping company instead of waiting for the white glove delivery after the Labor Day weekend. I have waited to post a review because I wanted to use the grill to ensure the product does what I expected before making a recommendation. I originally purchased the grill with the Maverick XR Pro thermometer and case, cherry picker and grill cover after listening to a good friend carry on about his Kamado Joe and extensive ribbing about the Traeger I purchase the previous year. I later purchased the ash basket bundle (ash basket, divider and ash can) based on his recommendation and subsequently the plancha along with a couple instant read thermometers. I want to preface this review with my opinion that a satisfying meal requires both flavor and texture and I could not achieve the latter with the Traeger which is why I purchased the SNS Kamado. I have cooked steaks, tri-tip, chicken wings, pork butt, chuck roast numerous times over the past year with various wood chips or chunks using both briquette and lump charcoal. I have to say that I am impressed with the flavor achieved with the turbo slow cooking method that produces a clean and distinctive wood flavor as a result of the higher temperatures in addition to the texture of the meat with the reverse sear using the cold grate method. I wasn’t not overly impressed with the ash basket fit in the SNS because it extends above the ceramic that holds the grate and the heat deflector. I initially contacted customer service and inquired about returning it for refund. I never sent the ash basket back but I didn’t foresee using it for cooking in the Kamado setup because the SNS configuration works perfect for my tastes as well as friends and family. The Ash Can works great and I highly recommend that product for quick clean out of the ashes using an old paint brush to sweep the ashes into the can after the coals are dead. The Maverick XR Pro thermometer range is outstanding and worked while I was 300 ft away at the barn during a low and slow cook of a pork butt. The ThermoPro thermometer I have lost communication before I even made it to the barn. The instant read thermometers have also worked very well. The plancha was seasoned with three coats of Blackstone griddle seasoning before first use and works great for preparing breakfast burritos and smash burgers with grilled onions. Placing the SNS basket with lit charcoal on one side allows for cooler areas on the opposite side to keep the cooked food warm until ready to serve. Using the plancha in a kamado setup with the fire directly below the plate heats the entire plate which is great for seasoning but not for cooking because there is no place to retreat if it is too hot.
We really appreciate you taking the time to get to know your SnS Kamado before leaving this great review. It means a lot to us! If you ever have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to reach out. We are always happy to help! Thanks again!
