    Pulled the trigger on a Lifesmart Kamado Grill!

    Hello

    I've been going back and forth about what type of grill and smoker to get, and I finally went ahead and just ordered the Lifesmart Kamado-style grill from Sam's Club. https://www.samsclub.com/p/lifesmart...e/prod24510784

    I wasn't ready to pony up for a Big Green Egg or Kamado Joe, but I think this will be a fun entry into the ceramic grilling world.

    Size-wise it's quite alright for now, and maybe as I get better I can upgrade to something bigger, but I'm still cooking for 2 mostly. Looking forward to when it'll be easier to get people together for bigger cookouts.

    I think that from what I was reading, I need to reach out to Lifesmart to buy the heat deflector separately so I can use it as a smoker, but otherwise, any other recommendations are welcome on other accessories, recipes and general know-how videos on Youtube are greatly appreciated!

    (I'll be sure to post my first meal on it!)

    I went online and I couldn’t find that they sold the deflector separately. When I clicked on their link for the model it took me to SAMS and a plus bonus package for $599. The cooking grate is only 13” which is the same as the Char-Griller Acorn Junior which would be an inexpensive option to explore Kamado cooking. The Kamado Joe Jr is a good option which I have seen for less than $399 at the Ceramic Grill Store. My son-in-law has one and I really like the way it cooks. I have a BGE MiniMax which is more than adequate for cooking for my wife and me. If I had to do it all over again I would get the Kamado Joe jr.

      Thanks for sharing! The one I got wasn't the $599 one, but $299 -- I had read in the comments/reviews that some people didn't have a heat deflector in their's but I'm hoping that isn't the case!

      Cecile if you have trouble getting a diffuser from LifeSmart, the guy at The Ceramic Grill Store can probably put together something that would work.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
