  1. I decided to add a Kamado grill to my collection. I currently own a Wilmington propane stainless grill. This is probably one of the best in the market at the $1,200 price range. I also own a Smokin-it smoker which is an awesome smoker and had many fantastic cooks on both. I have done lots of research on the Kamado grills and decided venture out and see what’s in the market. I wanted something small as I’m only cooking for two most of the time. I looked at the BGE MIniMax 13” ($600), Kamado Joe Jr. 13.5” ($400) and the Titan 10” ($150). I decided to give the Titan a shot knowing I was giving up 3” of grill space. On the flip side I was saving at least $250. Titan 10” : I purchased the grill on sale from https://www.titangreatoutdoors.com/outdoor-cooking-1/10-inch-ufo-kamado-grill-899169.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInrPisdKV5gIVS18NCh2lKQiIEAQYASABEgKetfD_BwE&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=1o1&lang=default&sc_intid=899169&scid=scplp899169&utm_source=google for $147.00 free shipping. I received the grill and put it together within a half hour. This grill is solid!. I found an aluminum pan that fit until the grill rack for indirect cooking. I also found an old iron chair and mounted the Titan on it for more height convenience. I fired it up numerous time using Cowboy lump charcoal. I cooked burgers, steaks and chicken to great satisfaction. Searing you say, 800 Degrees!!!! If that isn’t hot enough, wow. I decided to do a long cook this weekend putting four large pieces of lump in the chimney to desired appearance and then dropped them into the Titan. I placed a 5lb Boston Butt on a let it go for 7hrs. The weather conditions were 60 degrees, windy and raining. This kamado held 250 degrees for the duration with no fluctuation in temp. I was very impressed with this Titan. The Butt came out fantastic! The brisket will be next week. I checked on the Titan 4 hrs after the cook and it was still holding 300 degrees as I was trying to burn of the grill. Note: I never added and more lump charcoal to the grill. Overall, if anyone is looking for a great small Kamado grill this is the one for the price! I am very please with this purchase as I don’t normally take the time to write reviews. Cheers!
  2. I’m very pleased with final product. Made a little Eastern Carolina vinegar base BBQ sauce for the finish. Also, I just checked the Titan and its holding 300 degrees on hour 11. Cheers!
  3. Hour 7: Took the butt off the grill at 175 degrees. Foiled it, wrapped it and put it into the cooler. Going to let it rest for an hour or so. The lump could go for another 2 to 3hrs easy. I am very impressed with this 10” Titan. Held it’s Temp even during the heavy rain and wind throughout the day. Thought about buying the BGE MiniMax for $600, but i’m glad I didn’t. The Titan 10” small Kamado ($150 shipped) is the real deal. Will be buying a lot of Butts and Brisket for the $450 I saved.
  4. Going on hour 6 on Cowboy lump charcoal and still holding temp strong. Also, added some hickory chips a short time ago.
  5. Two hours in holding a solid 250 degrees. I forgot to mention I threw in four large pieces of Cowboy lump that I fired up in my Chimney. I will be adding some hickory chips in the next hour or so.
  6. I have cooked many butts over the years, but first time with a Kamado 10” Titan. Salted the 5lb butt over night and going to see how long 225 could sustain before adding more lump. I’ll keep you posted.
  7. I received my Titan 10” grill yesterday. I went shopping today and purchased an old iron chair for $10. I cut the back off and purchased a cedar dog ear fence post from Lowe’s for $3. I mounted the Titan grill frame onto the cedar and made me a functional stand. Cheers!
  8. I received my 10” Titan yesterday and did some scrape searching today. I found an old iron chair for $10 and cut the back off. I purchased one cedar dog ear fence post for $3 and built me a stand for this grill. I’m happy with the results. Cheers
  9. I’m waiting on delivery of a 10” Titan and saw titangreatoutdoors.com sells a deflector for this unit $25 free S&H. Being and amateur I didn’t order it, but will today. That said, I would love to see your stand as I was thinking of some ideas. Cheers, Ron
