Monolith kamado classic


Recommended Posts

So im looking at expanding the bbq's and fancy a deep dive into kamado's , now i found as entry levels a few contenders but im leaning to the monolith classic original, now ive been told "lifetime garentee" "made in the same place as kamado joe" "all kj parts accessory's are the same"Β 

So i thought id ask, does anyone have one, what are they like and how do they compare to the rest.Β 

Thank youΒ

I have a Monolith kamado and its great!

There is another post that I went into detail about my experience, thoughts, differences between monolith and kamado joe and what swayed me to get a Monolith in the endπŸ‘ Just have a look through, there are some pics aswell.

Hope this helps!😁

Yeah there are alot of accessories, I have been picking some up along the way. Good thing about the classic size is most accessories fit different makes and some third party ones are made to fit them aswell:th_INGardenbbq7:

@AdamGThey were saying in the shop that the top vent (chimney) from the kj fits , i like the kj vent type, they said they can sort something out for me.Β 

I had the exact same idea as you....but so far I have been happy with the standard one that I aint got round to getting one. I still prefer the kj one since it eliminates the chance of the vent opening/shutting when you open the lid (although if you remember to spin the whole top vent so that the 2 screws are inline then the problem is eliminated anyway, its just remembering to do this lol).

Had my monolith for 14 months so far and it still looks new on the outside🍻

Think my mind is made up tbh, just gotta tell the wife ive wonΒ πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚Β a kamado, and not to look at September's credit card billΒ πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜„

they are a great piece of kitπŸ‘. Are you going for the basic or the pro series?

I had loads of old dj music equipment collecting dust in the loft....not touched in 2 years and no desire to set them up again. So I sold it all and thats how I got my Monolith. Swapped one hobby for another....the wife wasnt too pleased but after a couple of months she came around after a few meals on it hahaπŸ€£πŸ˜‚

I still have all my vinyls up in the loft but everything else is gone. I dont think I could have just sold them without a new hobby to take their place πŸ˜†

You will have D-day (kamado landing/delivery) and judgement day (when the wife see's the bank statement) to look forward to πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ πŸ‘
