Did they do the bigger ones ? I know Aldi did but wasn’t sure Lidl did

The wife may be interested in one, so is it only available in a Lidl store or will we be able to order online??

ps....I've just had another look and there's no way of buying online that I can see,  looks like an early drive into Lemington Spa next Thur.....

Very interested in this little thing.

It doesn't look like it comes with any sort of deflector ? Is it fairly easy to get a third party insert for this ? Thanks.

p.s. Hello !

I saw this, but i assume due to its size, it will be less flexible than a normal size Kamado. OK for grilling but not really feasible for anything much else?

Am i wrong?

I don't know. That is what I wondered. I have seen people doing slower cooks on a Kamado Joe Jnr, and this is only a little bit smaller ?

But the price difference is huge.

yup no kind of heat deflector, so youll need to get creative to do any kind of low and slow with it

I manage to get one yesterday for the wife,  our local only had six on show not sure if that was their total stock?? I must admit it looks far better than I was expecting, I fixed the leg frame together and popped the body in and it looks a cracking job just for the two of us.
It'll be great for taking in the trailer tent or caravan, just the right size.....for £79 it's well worth the money.

Because of it's size there is not a lot of space inside, but I said that I may be able to fix a small plate just under the grill rack??

Yes, there were only 8 in mine at 8am. 

Agree on ease of assembly and quality. As mentioned previously it is the Landmann Grillchef. 

Will certainly suit two people, and I think a fairly sizable square chunk of meat for smoking should fit. 

From a bit of a measure and a comparison with the BGE Mini, it seems to be only marginally bigger inside. So I have ordered a ceramic "plate setter" that fits that.

Of course today it is pouring with rain :(

Yeah, gonna be a poor couple of days weather. 

I was initially tempted to get one of these, but in the end i decided not much point for me.

I already have a grill and a smoker. It isn't big enough to replace either one and it wont give me any additional techniques or opportunities.

I can see myself getting a large kamado style unit in the fullness of time, but this just doesn't offer the size or flexibility for me.

I went with the Big Green Egg one, which is quite pricey, but figured I can return it if it doesn't fit.

Grill riser/deflector set up in that first video looks great.

Second one looks like the one I linked, just ordered one of those ones.

Yes, I really like the extra height it gives.

This might also be worth buying, am going for one of these I think.
