I got this beast last year in and i have no regrets , absolutely amazing piece of kit , you wanna smoke it does the job , you wanna sear some steak or cook a pizza you can do this no problems , its huge so you can fit a large chicken and a huge joint of beef both cooking at the same time , if you are used to smoking meats you pick this up no problem , if you are a newbie it might take a little practice but i can imagine worse thing to practise over and over again. One tip i do have for anyone buying is open the box and check all bits have arrived undamaged, a friend of mine had one arrive broke and as they sell out so quick it took a very long time for him to get a replacement, and lastly anyone saying its overpriced or you can do the same on a £20 BBQ you are both wrong and this kit isn't really designed for you

You can grill burgers ‘12 for 1£’ from poundland or iceland as well
Had mine for a year now, can't recommend it highly enough. Excellent value for this kind of thing.
A rebadged version of this

If you're tempted go for it.

Oh and it's an oven not a bbq in the traditional sense.
Am on mobile internet so not sure if aldi are showing all the details on that link as its pre release info anyway, but did it come with any extras when it was last sold? Afaik attachments to expand the range of capabilities like the divide and conquer on the kamado Joe can really make all the difference with versatility. I particularly like the Joe-rotisserie attachment and if it fitted the Aldi kamado it would be a perfect solution particularly with their warranty

I got the morrisons one last year and it is fantastic. They are selling it in a different colour at the garden centres for around £900. It is the large one
Comparison on price alone is insignificant. Many of the cheap Chinese imports don't even come with basic grill plates and designs. Some of the bespoke accessories can soon mount up to well over £100

Oh I see, we've already got an oven
So here is last years advert with a list of all the grilling accessories included which doesn't look half bad at all assuming it's replicated in this offer.

aldi.co.uk/kam…000

  • Includes 2 cooking grills
  • First level cooking grill approx. 41cm
  • Grill elevator
  • Grill lifter
  • Ceramic heat deflector
  • Ash cleaning tool

It looks like the dimensions included on the model from last year (if the same), it will be equivalent to the 21"

Haha you thought they meant it.
I would never BBQ in those trousers, what is he thinking?
Oh, and best thing it does?.... Pizza, homemade base etc. Amazing.
I’m Glad they are doing these again as the ceramic ring that the grill sits on has cracked on mine so I’ll be giving them a call and requesting a new one under warranty. Other than that a fantastic product that I’d recommend to anyone.

You will need a pizza stone which can be bought for around £20-25.

Bah! Missed out on this last year but was intrigued enough by the idea that I ended up buying an Akorn from somebody on eBay (basically, a slightly lighter metal version of a Kamado). Never actually found the time to put this together, however, after deciding to get a patio laid in the back garden! Buyers remorse with the Akorn which will be perfectly functional once I actually get the flipping thing set up but it doesn't quite have the cachet of a ceramic one which is only slightly more expensive from Aldi.

If you get one of these, lots of useful information about Kamado cooking on KamadoGuru. For pizza, it apparently helps if you raise the pizza stone a bit higher in the dome to get the ideal pizza temperatures. Some people even work out a set up so you have a pizza stone both above and below and then slot the pizza in between the two.

I got one of these eggs from Aldi last year after around 15 years of using gas! Much more fun just not as quick heating up.

Question for fellow owners though - I have struggled to get it up to really high temps so you can cook a pizza really quickly. Looking in to it people say it's either restricted airflow or the charcoal you are using. I'm pretty sure the airflow is OK which points towards the charcoal. What are people using with this? I've been using that CPL restaurant grade charcoal so I'm not sure if that's the culprit or not? Either that or I'm not using enough of it. I bought the Aldi chimney starter with the Egg so I just fill the chimney up and use that amount, is that too little do people think?

Appreciate any advice!

I have a pizza oven, and struggled for a long time to hit the 350/400 degrees Celsius need to quickly cook the pizza. It’s all about practice and having the vents right. Just keep practicing with the vents, and resist the temptation to open the bbq as it’ll cool down very quickly if you open.

Although I haven't yet started using my kamado, I understand that you need to raise the pizza higher in the dome. Hints and tips:

You could probably get some cheap fire/kiln bricks to put underneath your pizza stone to get it a bit higher up?

Couple of things to get the temp as high as you can first off all make sure all the vents are open as far as you can, also put a base of unlit charcoal down into the BBQ maybe 2-3 lumps high then fill your chimney starter to the top and light them , once hot pour the coal from the chimney started onto the coal in the BBQ and it should heat up loads in 10 mins or so , my friend actually did this and end up having flames coming though the top
Thanks guys, I'll take it all on board and experiment some more.

I'm going to use it this weekend for sure, not for pizza though as my pizza stone hasn't arrived yet!
Looks like this is now available on 28th April according to the website?

Thanks Updated
Can someone who has one already please let me know how heavy the lid is to open it, and whether/how it stays in place when open?
termite15/04/2019 16:50

Oh I see, we've already got an oven


Does your oven smoke a beef joint?
As people said before it sounds like this is a rebranded Al Hacienda. Someone mentioned this is the equivalent to the large model however when comparing the specs it matches the medium (smallest)

Can anyone clarify please. Thanks in advance.
how well packaged does it come? in a plywood box on a pallet?

If its the same as last year, its the medium la hacendia with a few of the accessories like the extra grill and heat deflector. Morrisons did one for the same money last year but it was a large model, without the additional accesories
I got one last year and love it. I have had no issues and I've not had to buy any accessories but I believe you can buy via Hacienda.
Just start off with forgiving food like chicken and burgers, then move onto pulled pork -brisket is a whole new skill, especially if you use British/Irish grass fed beef. It's very economical with charcoal but if you're going searing temps remember to fill the fire box.

I bought the Morrison’s one last year and it also came with the accessories. You are correct, if this is the same as last year this is the medium size. The Morrison’s was the large for the same money.

I'm currently trying to find out if Morrison’s are getting them in again this year as my parents want one. Not having much luck finding out at the moment. Anyone know
Cooking Grate 18" on this one?

I found this on youtube from someone who bought last years

Is there a big difference between this and this:
costco.co.uk/Gar…ill

I've seen the Costco one in the flesh and looks exactly the same as a Big Green Egg, but is it worth £250 more than the Aldi one?

I would love to see how good a job it'd do with a rib of beef.

Yep and put some wood chips in it and see how long you think it's a good idea when the house smells of a smokehouse for a week.
