Black Olive pellet Kamado opinion?

Recommended Posts

Our local discount store has 2 used but in good condition Black Olive pellet Kamados. Anyone have any opinion on these grills and what they should be worth? They are both on sale for $199, which seems cheap to me.

I have no experience with them so don't know how they perform. The concept seems intriguing and for $200 it may be worth a shot. I have seen new ones in the store in the past and wasn't impressed but I want to say they wanted around $1000. For that price I felt there were better choices out there.

Walk away.  These things have been measured and found wanting.  Junk is junk no matter how cheap.  Get online and read some reviews.  Read the review at Meathead's site, AmazingRibs.com.  Save your money and get something better down the road.

Been a long time but irric  I read some bad reviews. For pennnies on the dollar you have to decide if a new review is worth it. 

 

If if I were you you would offer half and if they bite take it and post a review. But eve a t two handy might be a decent roll of the dice.

 

dk, is this a RJ creation...if so beware. But some have had good results.

My only concern is that the chip feeder/electric part of the grill is broken or doesn't work well, and that is why they were returned because cosmetically they look great with no breaks. They are very heavy with some solid genuine ceramic lining. If the electronics are broken, I bet the replacement parts are super expensive and you can't use it as a charcoal grill because there are no air vents in the bottom.
