    Very helpful - when the original delivery date was not possible for me they changed it to another very easily. Would use them again ( indeed have already done so ) . Delivery driver extremely helpful - helped assemble it ( it is seriously heavy)

    Terrific piece of kit - weighs a ton so you need two people with some lifting ability to set it up - but that aside amazingly precise and controllable for a bbq equivalent. Looking forward to using it for smoking and the oven capability.

    I bought the Kamado Joe Classic 18" ceramic grill from Russums about a year ago now. it is probably one of the best things I have ever bought. It is absolutely awesome and I have used it through out the year, even clearing snow off it in the winter. If you love BBQ you can't go wrong with this, it is so versatile that I barely use my inside oven now. From smoking whole chickens, cooking the most amazing ribs ever, cooking/smokng bone in pork shoulder for 16 hours for pulled pork on just one lot of lumpwood charcoal (and then being able to re-use what charcoal was still left for 2 more bbq's!), 500 degrees for rib eye steak and also for home made pizza (using a pizza stone). The divide and conquer cooking system just opens up so many ways of setting it up with direct, indirect heat, half and half and even baking! Yep I read you could cook anything on it so to really challenge it I tried lemon meringue pie and a double chocolate lime cheesecake, and no word of a lie they both came out perfect!!! So now we try anything we can think of, from frozen chips and onion rings to go with homemade burgers to a full Sunday roast including roast veg and potatoes and even Yorkshire Puddings which came out spot on. I can't recommend this product enough, as I'm sure my friends and family would vouch for too. It may not be cheap (you won't find it any cheaper than Russums!) but it is worth every penny!. Meat is just so moist and tender from it, the heat is very easily controllable just using the side and top vents, from keeping at a steady 220 for 16 hours to a raging inferno of 500 degrees. It is nearly zero maintenance (just check the tightness of the bands a couple of times a year) at it looks fantastic. And as for Russum's you couldn't ask for better service. With it being such an investment I contacted them several times before buying, they were very helpful, even sending out pictures of the latest model (the specs had just changed) and their after sales is second to none (thanks Joanne, you are a star!!). As others have said, buy one you will not regret it!! Oh and also invest in a thermapen, the most accurate and speedy thermometer I have ever used, they remove any guess of knowing if something is cooked or not (also available from Russum's)

    I was under the impression the pallet was to be craned off and left on the drive way where I could unpack it to make the barbecue lighter so one could lift . What actually happened was it had to be lifted off the lorry from shoulder to head height on to the ground by myself and the delivery driver. When packaged together this egg is extremely heavy and I hurt my back in the process. This was not made clear in the phone call the day before or I would have got help . The product itself is great and very happy with it.

    Not only an amazing product but also an amazing company too!! Got my Kamado in August and must have used it in excess of 40 times since then, ranging from low and slow ribs smoked for 6 hours, pizzas in ten minutes, scotch eggs, lemon meringue pie yes you read right lemon meringue pie cooked pastry base, home made filling and meringue on top (best one I have ever cooked to be honest) cheese stuffed burgers smoked for 2 hours, pulled pork smoked for 12 hours, I could go on and on and on. Holds a stable temperature really well be it for low and slow 200f to a raging inferno of 550f for pizzas, even in subzero temperatures that we are having at the moment, just cooked some ribs this evening!! As for Russums, couldn't ask for better, firstly price alone, you will not find cheaper and not only that they stock the most up to date models unlike what some other sites advertise. Their staff are very helpful and informative and delivery was exactly as described, 10/10 for service. As with some of the other reviews I too had condensation in the thermometer but this seems completely natural depending on the conditions (I have even contacted Kamado Joe regarding the matter) it does clear on ts own but equally gets more condensation in colder damper weather but the temperature can still be seen. If you are thinking of getting one my advice would be go for it it's awesome!! And defiantly buy it from Russums!!!

    Prompt delivery, call from russums to let me know roughly how long delivery would be. Only slight niggle was that the delivery company was supposed to give me a call to let me know they'd be delivering but the driver said he didn't have my number. Not a major problem as I had a rough idea which day it was being delivered anyway. Driver was incredibly helpful and professional.

    Used it a couple of times now. Only issue stopping it getting an excellent rating is thermometer difficult to read due to condensation.

    I bought my Kamado Joe last year from Russums and have used it pretty much non stop since then, including through the winter! Firstly don't think of it as a BBQ, it's more like a versatile outdoor oven. It really is outdoor cooking as it should be, you get all the benefits of the charcoal and wood smoke flavour, but with the control of a normal oven. The heat is controlled by modifying the air flow through the grill by simply setting a sliding shutter at the base and adjusting the vents on the lid. We have achieved incredible searing temperatures of over 400 degrees, cooking steaks in seconds. The temperature gauge takes the guess work out of it, especially when cooking for long periods at a low constant temperature. Home made pizza takes just minutes and tastes fantastic. Joints of meat cooked long and slow are the most flavoursome and juicy we've ever had. The Kamado Joe is low maintenance and easy to use, it's a fantastic investment and worth every penny, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys cooking and food.

    If you are serious about BBQs then this is a must have. Yes it's an indulgence but it's the difference between buying a Ford Mondeo and a Rolls Royce. Its real charcoal BBQing but with the control. Build is superb. Its much more satisfying working with this than a tinny clapped out cheapo BBQ. Food tastes delicious. Heat deflector is a must for doing superb pizzas. Excellent service from Russums.

    Finally managed to save enough money to buy the Kamado and when searching for a supplier found Russums. Staff were great, knowledgeable and very helpful - I had one item missing from my order and they went out of their way to find and fulfill it. Top marks all round. Kamado came on the day they said it would and after a short build time had it up and running. Cannot rate this grill/oven/bbq enough, my only regret is that I had to wait so long to get one. Bite the bullet, get one now and you will not be disappointed, guaranteed!

    Just bought one of these-weather's finally improved so fired it up,absolutely fantastic! To anybody thinking about one of these,don't hesitate;they're a doddle to set-up and use,the food tastes stunning and so juicy unlike a trad barbecue which can dry things out sometimes,easy maintenance and doesn't need much charcoal either. Excellent service from Russums too so they come heartily recommended also!

    The title says it all. An amazing item - a proper 'boys toy'. If you're sick to death of gas bbq's and want to get back to the charcoal flame grilled taste of what bbq's should all be about then get one of these beauties. Easily controlled to get the heat right and a super bbq taste. It provides all the taste and none of the burnt outside / raw inside food. The heat deflector ensures even, less fierce cooking and pizzas cooked on the pizza stone are just amazing. Didn't think I could get so excited about a bbq but this is just something else. Russums are the cheapest out there and always provide a great service and quick delivery. Dig deep and buy one of these - you won't regret it.

    As the title says, very good. I am still getting used to different ways it can be used, but very easy to do. Make sure that you have somewhere sheltered if you want to use it in all weathers. Assembly wise I have dropped a star as it is damn heavy (try get 2x people). I knew about the weight in advance so this was expected - but you can't give 5 stars for ease. Great value from Russums, particularly with the heat deflector as part of the deal.
