Been lusting after one of these for a while now. Rather expensive so looking at some cheaper ones that are available.

Aldi are about to sell their knock off version for £350. Apparently it's a rebadged version of a common cheap alternative at a lower than usual price.

 

I don't think it comes with all of the standard, nor is it compatible with the optional Joe accessories. But at £500 less than the normal price (and I've been monitoring Joe's for a couple of years and haven't seen any big discounts) it's a pretty tempting offer. I guess the quality will be lower but surely the concept and cooking properties will be more or less the same?

I have the aldi one, got it last year. Great for the price. I had a smaller on so had some experience with these types of BBQ, would recommend the aldi one if interested as outlay is much less.

I too have been pining after one of these for some time.

 

According to other forums the quality of the Aldi one is good and it is a sensible buy if your interested in going down the egg route...

Kit: Some coffee bashers for the beans and some water heater thingies for the brewing bit.

I was looking at this the other day. Felt like a really nice bit of kit, and was on sale for £540

in the shop. Very tempted.

So size for size how does the Aldi one compare size for size, the Costco one has all the dimensions available.

Hi Jon,

 

Aldi one is slightly smaller, 20 inch diameter, it also does not have as many extras, only comes with a high extender rack and upper rack, no deflector plate. But as I say for the price difference worth a punt, cooking one an egg is different to normal BBQso cooking style needs to change. I love them, temp control for long cooks is really easy.

My Daughter has just bought into the OZPIG system of outdoor cooking, From the images I've managed to see, an out of service gas cylinder will be a perfect donor part toward replicating one.

Do a Goooogle on it, quite a well built bit of kit, by what my Daughter tells me and it has spark guards as standard. After viewing it, it set me thinking, so I made a start....
