Saffire pictures

Recommended Posts

...So there are as mentioned 3 levels and 3 sizes of Saffire...

 

the 19" and the XL 23" and new next year the 15"....

 

they come in two different colours, Jasper Red, Onyx Black....next year there is a special edition the Blue Platinum....which is a great colour

 

the bronze edition is where all metal parts are galvanised and then powder coated black - not just powder coated like some others

 

the silver edition is where all parts are 304 stainless but with a 202 cart and bamboo side shelves

 

platinum edition is all metal 304 plus cart plus side shelves in 304 but is the blue colour grill

 

a customer can order the silver and upgrade to the full 304

 

new also the stainless handles which are really great...so much I had to get one for my XL....

 

the stainless side shelves, stainless casters/wheels and stainless handle can all be ordered seperately to upgrade any existing grills...

here are some pictures of the XL 23" hinge system....it is sooo heavy duty...makes light work of the lid lifting and I guess I could tighten it so that it almost soft closes when let go....but I am too chicken to do it and rely on it ;)

Looks like a pretty sweet grill. What is the port in the side and the wand for? I've never seen that before.

 

 

that the chip feeder...lets you add smoke chips and chunks w/o taking the grill apart or smoking yourself adding them and putting all the deflector and stuff back in....

 

plus adding any extra coal at any stage...and the best I found after you have dished up a pizza and added another the escaped heat you can get back in 2 seconds by feeding small wood chips inot the running fire to stoke up the heat again for teh next pizza.....

 

it really is so cool, I cant believe that no-one else has got anything similar...despite many saying not needed I can say I woudl miss it so much if I didnt have it....

Saffires have been around for a while. I have seen them over the years at BBQ shows and they are a decent looking kamado. Saffire's V-Rack and Expander is almost identical to the original Kamado Joe's set-up before their Divide & Conquer upgrade;

 I am not big on the "chip feeder port" as (1) I don't like using chips, and (2) I never have to add wood chunks during a cook. That feature reminds me a lot like the hinge rack on the cooking grate that Kamado Joe use to feature. It looks good in the show room, but nobody ever used it. 

 

You can buy Saffires off of Amazon.

      For anyone interested, the Joetisserie fits and works perfectly on the 19" Saffire Kamado.
      Here are some pics of my last cook.
      Chicken doner recipe with homemade pita, turned out delicious.

      Hello, I have had my Saffire for about a year and a half now and wanted to be apart of a Kamado community where i can learn some new recipes and tips.
       
      I mostly have smoked turkeys (as you can see from my profile picture) and each time i amazed with how juicy a delicious the turkey is.  I never liked turkey before because every time i had turkey it was dry, but now i love it ever since i have been smoking it on my Saffire. That is my testimony on why i believe Ceramic Grills are the best and now I never want to have any meat unless it is done on a Ceramic Grill.

      So the #1 request I've had from the Mrs is pizza.  Well we finally found a night
      we could do it.
       
      Mrs. byg & the little one made up the pizzas while my oldest supervised the kamado as we brought the temp up.
       
      Fired up a couple of these to feed the family.  They were delicious.   I've never seen my girls eat like that before.
       
      The only thing missing was a big plate of wings to go with them.

      I'm new to this forum, but as I'm in the process of shopping for a kamado style grill, I've found the posts here to be invaluable in putting all the the different brands in perspective.  I'm considering the Saffire, but don't see any current posts regarding this grill.  Does anyone have updated info for me to digest?  I can plainly see the hardware is superior, but what I can't know is the quality of the ceramic.  So here is another question....is all ceramic created equal?  Is BGE ceramic the same as Saffire ceramic and Kamado Joe ceramic?  At this point I've narrowed the search down to BGE, Kamado Joe and Saffire.  However, this is still a wide open field for me.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      ...so it looks like the Pizza bug definitely set in 
       

       
      Tomato sauce prep....
       

       
      onions lightly browned off in Olive oil, with a little Vegeta (veg salt mix with very little salt), red wine added and lightly cooked off...then tomato, puree, pepper, worcester sauce for depth, a little balsamico and a little sugar to wake up the tomato flavour...
       

       
      ...taste test and done....
       

       
      ...prepped the toppings, goats cheese, figs, bacon, red onion, paprika (bell pepper), spanish salami, chorizo, serano dry aged bacon, prawns, salmon, anchovies, zucchini, mex chicken....and of course garlic....
       

       
      ...no not all of these on one Pizza!....4 Pizzas in plan...Fishy Pizza, Salami Pizza (not your ordinary Salami by the way), Meat feast....and after seeing the previous pizza posts here I had to try the goats cheese, bacon, fig kombo....!
       
      ....but which Saffire to use...?...
       

       
      yup has to be the XL...lots of room, larger Pizzas....so added firelighters (yes some will say how many fire lighters but I wanted a quick start and an even start on the whole coal surface)
       

       
      if you see my fire ring got a break!....never mind for this cook it wont matter a bit....but have spoken with Saffire and they are getting me a new ring sent out from the US...as always speaking with Steve is a pleasure and no issues getting a new part (my first service experience as yet, with my other Saffire I have never had to use their service as i had no problems in any way)
       
      but I also used the opportunity to order two extra cooking grids that way with the new rack system I can cook on three full levels and on top use the extender for the fourth level....this will come in handy with big parties and with my cold smoking that starts in Winter...(smoked suasage, fish, cheeses smoked without heat...over 14 hours using sawdust and herb mixes)
       
      let the firelighters burn out and closed the lid, opened up the daisy wheel and then the bottom vent leaving the spark guard closed to protect my decking
       


       
      fire is looking good and kicking off.....is great having the chip feeder hole you can spy on the fire w/o affecting the temp at any time....plus later there is another benefit if you read on...
       

       
      ...back to the kitchen....roll out the dough, and get the pizza's finished...
       
        
       
      all done...
       

       
      by the time I got to finishing them and after the telephone call to Steve (Saffire) it had got dark again...man Summer is disappearing fast over here  
       

       
      temp locked in good....
       

       
      first pizza in...
       

       
      5 mins, Pizza done to a tee....then one after the other
       
      ....each time I swapped the pizza out when I closed the lid i then used the sneaky feature on the Saffire and the new 2014 chip feeder....to add more coal or in this case some spare dry smoke chips that are used to boost the fire back up quick....
       
      what is cool is you can fit smoking chunks in the new feeder and smaller coals...and all w/o opening the lid or disturbing the temp inside
       
      ...at first I thought nice feature but if I add the chunks at the beginning then is no great deal
       
      ....but I now add the chunks and chips when i want, how I want and also means if I decide I want a short smoke at the end of a cook I can do it too
       
      ....found this great with pizza...last 2 mins adding wet chips to get a smoky top flavour....
       
      ....I now love the feature  ....I would like to swap my older saffire out for a new one just for this better smoking chip feeder too.....must speak with Steve see if he can do me a deal
       



       
      ...and the pizzas....as always a Kamado Pizza is the best...and the goats cheese, fig kombo....absolutely regal guys....thank god you guys showed me the way with that topping...real good
