I've had this Kamado for a little over a year now and I really couldn't imagine it being any better than it is. I've cooked just about everything on it and used it in every possible configuration - rarely does anything that says it does it all do any of it very well, but this, it REALLY does excel at everything. I've had a several smokers (including a BGE, and a pellet) and neither of those even came close to what this kamado can do. My backyard has had a gasser, smoker and Weber for years and I now use this for almost everything except maybe something on the gasser when I'm in a hurry. The slow n sear insert gives me a much longer cook time than I anticipated and when I need to add some more lump it's only a few seconds of lid up time. I pretty much only use the full kamado set up with a very big load, full packer brisket, or to go turbo heat on a pizza. I live in central NY and have had no problem retaining heat in single digit temperatures. I do have an ultra Q paired up with this and would highly recommend for hands off perfect temp control, chart below is from an 18 hour cook that I got to sleep right through all night, never touched it, cranked it up after meat came off at about 3pm for side dish. It does have a healthy price tag, however if you are in the market you will not regret it. I've been fortunate to get to many of the great BBQ places in the country, and thanks to this smoker and the Amazing Ribs.com website (which from their review is where I got the recommendation for this grill) I am churning out meals that would challenge any of them. Thank you SNS for a fantastic product, I look forward to many more years of delicious outcomes.
This is my first Kamado grill. Had been using both a gas grill and a vertical smoker for years. I cooked two spatchcock chickens in a traditional kamado set up first and then did a reverse seared tri tip using the Slow 'N Sear basket attachment. Both came out fantastic! Loved the flavor using the coals with a piece of wood tossed in for some smoke. Family is giving it rave reviews as well. I don't see myself using the old gas grill for much going forward. Looking for any excuse I can to cook on the SnS Kamado now.
The Last One
This is the last grill I will ever buy. I ordered my Kamado deluxe on April 18 around 1030 pm. Three days later the grill arrived. The Fedx guys were able to get the grill up the steps with the help from my neighbor. This is around three hundred lbs. Myself and cousin and neighbor unboxed all of the contents. In about twenty minutes it was completely assembled and ready for its first cook. So I stepped back and washed off the grates and a general wipe down. So the first cook, starting less than two hours after delivery with two racks of baby back ribs. Total cook time was right at 5:30 minutes. I of course used a dry rub then finished them with some real sorgum molasses. After a couple of weeks watching cooking videos and techniques used, I must of graduated with SNS honors. The cook was a complete success. This grill is absolutely the best. I own three Weber performers, a Weber Ranch kettle (yes that is the big boy). I will never say anything negative about my Webers. Many delicious meals have been made using them. My SNS Deluxe Kamado will be tested today with chicken wings. I'll shoot a after summer review. Good grilling to all. This is the last one I'll ever buy!!
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.
