  1. I am up and running with the Goose. I couldn't be more happier and today have ordered the joetisserie which arrives this coming Monday
  2. 3 for 2 on Big K 15kg restaurant grade Coal @ Ocado Also have a Waitrose code you can use on Ocado VOU8227825 - min spend £100 £30 off So, 90kg for around £72 https://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Big-K-Restaurant-Grade-Barbecue-Charcoal/266898011
  3. Couriers have indicated that there is a large consignment arriving at their depot for my area, today or tomorrow, failing any development, i will go back to the Goose. btw, it has been sort of confirmed that the Aldi kamado is broadly the same as "thebastard" so it is with much elation that buyers of the Aldi/La Hacienda solution may just have found a 3rd party rotisserie solution. https://www.vuurenrook.nl/en/spit-on-fire-kamado-rotisserie-ring.html Good price considering opinion that the UK Joetisserie is extortion.
  4. They have been doing this for a while now but i have some good news for you! Goose does indeed take the stock Joetisserie This picture was taken from the Wild Goose Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1914574768821333/
  5. On the FB Group one of the new members today reported that when she decided to go ahead and order, the Aldi link was showing as Sold Out. Some 20 minutes later on a revisit, it was back on-sale again. Worries me if it does turn up finally and damaged whether they will have ample enough replacements if needed. There have been several instances of partial refunds for cosmetic damage (up to £100) and more importantly the 3 year warranty is left intact. The courier can be contacted via this number @MarkG 01724 897360‬ If it all goes tits up, i will have to go for the Goose again.
  6. MarkG, there have been numerous reports of both transit/courier damage and perhaps more worrying manufacture process enamel chips. Aldi policy is to replace however the majority of this FB user group dedicated to the Aldi Kamado who ordered on or around release date (28th April) are still awaiting delivery. https://www.facebook.com/groups/407489356750953/ https://www.woodsmokeforum.uk/topic/540-aldi-kamado/page/5/#comments The Aldi 3 year no quibble warranty should also be taken into consideration but i agree, the Goose is an outstanding deal for the size and as you say, the accessories included you have the perfect solution.
  7. Just in case anyone is interested, the Aldi Kamado goes on sale this morning. Ships 2nd May. https://www.aldi.co.uk/kamado-bbq-%26-ceramic-grill/p/011107254798500
  8. Up until a few days ago i was still waiting delivery so have now cancelled and am going for the Aldi 2019 version which goes on sale online on 28 April with guaranteed delivery the following few days saving a whopping £200 as a result. The three year no-quibble Aldi warranty is with La Hacienda hence it's safe to presume it's the Hacienda Medium Kamado. https://www.lahacienda.co.uk/product/kamado-ovens/ Not much info presently on the Aldi site but this is a re-release of the same 21" grill they sold out with last year. Reviews have been consistently good AND importantly if based on last years' contents, there is a good range of accessories included albeit no Divide and Conquer plate. This is the Ideal Home review of last years offer from Aldi and I expect it to sell-out in a day or two. https://www.idealhome.co.uk/news/aldi-kamodo-bbq-201111 And at £349.99 kerbside delivered it's not gonna break the bank. Divide and Conqueor universal for 21" in UK is competitively priced here at £110 delivered. (Not qualified yet that this one fits). https://www.gardenbox.co.uk/collections/kamado-barbecue/products/universal-divide-and-conquer-flexible-cooking-system-for-21-kamado-charcoal-bbq Finally, here is the link to the Aldi pre-sale promo https://www.aldi.co.uk/garden-shop/kamado-bbq ---------------------- more info pictures in this link https://www.woodsmokeforum.uk/topic/540-aldi-kamado/?tab=comments#comment-2257 )
  9. Would someone be able to measure the distance in CM between the two front castors/wheels. TIA
  10. Looking at the two different models, i can barely see any difference between the two. Makes me wonder if it's more just a question of The GreenHouse People having to keep Kamado Joe accessories unsupported for 3rd party makes. I am also wondering if the JoeTisserie would fit the Goose? I see The GreenHouse People have an event (UK) shortly on April 6th showcasing KJ products. Too far from me sadly but a good opportunity for anyone in the UK thinking of making the investment in the KJ range and sounds like an even better opportunity to see the Accessories and Chefs' in action. https://www.kamadoevents.com/
  11. I found the user guide in PDF format here which has some good info. https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/a71bb1_1c3eccc327114c3abd706fd52e24dcb8.pdf Also a good close up picture of the racking design
  12. Thanks guys. The Goose will be here this coming week all being well. Nice to be here.
  13. Since joining last week Ive spent a lot of time doing research taking into account the limited options we have in the UK for known name Kamado solutions. If you have an unlimited budget in the UK sure, then that's not a problem, sourcing all those attractive accessories that take the KJ range to the next level, it just leaves a bitter taste knowing the Joe-Tisserie is circa $300 in USA and £350 in the UK. That's of course if you can find stock of those accessories. The Pizza Porta is not even available in the UK. If i went for the KJ it would be like owning Taking into account the limited range of KJ accessories available in the UK and the ridiculous pricing when you can find them, Ive decided to opt for something that will hopefully do the job without having to break the bank and with the associated savings home-develop innovations and ideas to expand the cooking methods accordingly. All good fun! So in that vein, Ive decided to opt for the Wild Goose 18 Currently £549 minus £20 Newsletter Signup so £529 delivered. ($689) 4 months Paypal interest free credit as well
