  1. I understand what you are saying, we've got some "cheap" knives but also a Japanese Damascus forged knife that is a thing of beauty....as well as being razor sharp. I suppose it's like most things, whether it's watches, handbags, cars or clothes.... the divide between the low-cost end and the high end can be astronomical but they all do the same basic things.
  2. What a fantastic array of interests you all have I'm a semi-retired logistics manager with several interests that included squash, mountain biking, angling, photography, and cinematography to name few. My main hobbies are Human History (archaeology) and Natural History of which I'm actively involved. With regards to the archaeology interest, I work within a small team of 3 people and we have both a website and a Flickr account. The website gives a little detail about what we do and the Flickr site depicts some of the fruits of our labour. Our website can be found at https://www.recoveryofhistory.com/ For anyone who would like to see some Iron Age, Roman, and Medieval artefacts, high definition images can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/80501866@N00/sets/ 3D images of some of the above finds can be seen here: https://sketchfab.com/paulking/models This is a new aspect of my photographic interest called photogrammetry. It took me a while before I could say that too! You may find this bit quite interesting? Thank you for letting me part of your superb forum.
  3. Thanks for the advice. We'll use our IR laser on the next attempt. The Aldi came with a great set-up with regards to the upper grills. We can use these to place the deflector over the fire bowl and place the pizza stone above this higher up in the oven. The weather looks to be improving for the weekend so pizza and other great dishes will be on the menu....
  4. We've got a Kamado that was on offer through Aldi UK and has now sold out. The price was £350 which is great for such a large(ish) Kamado. The grill area itself is 16 inches across which is fine for two of us. We've already created a Jerk Chicken dish (with authentic Jamaican Pimento wood) on it along with; ribs, sirloin, and pizza. We added pit fried Plantain and Kamado roasted sweet potato to the Jerk Chicken washed down with Red Stripe beer! We just quite haven't mastered the pizza yet but we know where we went wrong so looking forward to furthering trials :D
  5. Hi everyone, I'm new to the world of Kamado cooking after looking for a traditional wood-fired pizza oven to replace our BBQ. Although we wanted a pizza oven, we didn't want to lose the ability to BBQ as before. I'd never heard of a Kamado oven before and the Kamado was the answer to our dreams! To think that it can Tandoor as well as smoke and slow cook too was a fantastic bonus. Looking forward to reading all the past and future posts to glean the experience of the forum members. Best wishes to all. Paul
