  1. Display models?

    Thanks, I'll try the bsk forum, the manufacturers response was pretty much a straight "don't know"
  2. Display models?

    Anybody happen to know where I can actually go poke a Broil King Keg 5000 in California? The only supplier i can find from the website near LA is Lowes and none of the stores have them on display, they seem to be special order only. :(
  3. Kamado Transporter

    I was reading yesterday on the keg forum and came across quite a few different posts of people having issues with temp control, I do however suspect that some of them might be new to kamado style grills in general and others were having issues with leaks. I'm pretty sure that after reading all the concerns about fragility (even though i'm still not convinced!) combined with the height of the cart/frame + grill when loaded in the truck (i need it to be lower than my rooftop tent frame) that I'll go the Keg route, IF I can actually find one in a store to poke around at before I shell out the cash to buy one. I saw a KJ Classic on craigslist today for $600 too so will probably end up with both :/

    Haven't seen these before! I'm assuming it's just as versitile and good for pizza \ smoking etc as a KJ?

    I'm assuming (possibly incorrectly!) that the cradle has some sort of locking mechanism to stop it swinging about when you're not moving it so would hope it'd be reasonably sturdy once it was strapped down. You're right, any sort of vehicular incident would still probably end up badly though! I'm looking at reasonably regularly cooking for 20-30 people though so the smaller grills just aren't going to cut it unless I bought about 10 of them!
  6. I've recently moved from Australia to an apartment in California that has no area to do any cooking (I had to leave my KJ classic behind). Before I go out and replace my KJ with another classic or big joe at the next Costco roadshow, I was hoping to find some way of loading a kamado onto the back of my truck single handed so I can transport it to the local sports club at the weekends and do some grilling. I don't want to invest in a new Kamado only to find I can't transport it, I know there's smaller more portable versions, but i'd like to be able to cook for more than just a few people. So , Has anyone here seen one of these in the flesh? http://heathauler.com/ This popped up in a google search but I've never seen or heard of it before so was hoping someone here has. It looks like an awesome idea but i'm just wondering how sturdy it is and whether i'm likely to end up underneath it when unloading!
  7. Hi

    I'm new to this forum but fortunately not new to Kamado grilling I've owned a KJ Classic for years but recently moved from Australia to California and had to leave it behind :( , I did however get a fairly decent price for selling an 8yr old KJ classic and recovered half my initial 8 yr investment! Looking forward to member input to my questions (which I'm about to post in the proper forum!) Cheers Peter
