    Summit Kamado E6/S6: charcoal loading for long burn?

    Thanks Darryl. We must have watched the same video :D The official owners guide is not a lot of use. I think it is misleading. As you say, the key is to start with a small fire. I must try a cheap hunk of meat to experiment. Pork shoulder or a chuck roast.

    Summit Kamado E6/S6: charcoal loading for long burn?

    Haven't tried low and low on my new E6 yet. Does the burn on the lower grate go in a particular direction? I saw a video where they started at the 10 o'clock edge position. I assumed it would burn evenly unless you are using an ATC with a fan. Does minion method work with a few lit coals...

    How good (or bad) is the Summit Kamado E6

    Already earning from the first cook on Sunday (indirect set up for half chicken) that it needs less fuel than kettle! Took a few briquettes out to help bring it back down. On kettles I've always had the top vent either fully Open or Closed and controlled the temp with the bottom vent. Had the...

    BBQGuru CyberQ WiFi - Retired

    I bought a CyberQ WiFi a few years ago to control my WSM. WSM has been sold as I stopped using it (I know that's terrible) Got the CyberQ out today to see if it still works. It does, but the Pit Pal app is not in the Apple App Store anymore. Are their any other compatible apps, or do I have to...

    How good (or bad) is the Summit Kamado E6

    Well I've bought one today. Now waiting for help to get it out of the car! Price dropped £100 to £895 ($1193) in a Black Friday offer. Cheapest I've ever seen it in the U.K. Surprised how heavy it is, but still half the weight of a ceramic.

    How good (or bad) is the Summit Kamado E6

    Thanks Mark, that definitely helps. I want to move away from briquettes. The Weber ones create a lot of ash which I've noticed covers everything in the new BBQ shelter, just from lighting them. We have good quality lumpwood here and I think it will work well with the E6. More space will also...

    How good (or bad) is the Summit Kamado E6

    T Thanks Grant. Only seem to have a few people in the UK that have bought one and they like it. The price for the E6 in the U.K. is currently £995 ($1335) so I agree it's expensive and there is never much of a discount available. I think they are deliberately keeping the price higher than it...

    Picked up one of the new Travelers

    Never thought I'd buy a gasser until I had to opportunity to buy a Traveler in an end of season sale back in August. £200 ($268) is half the UK recommended retail price. so too good to miss. One of the guys I follow on Twitter had taken one in his motor home (RV) and did several cooks which...

    Weber Master Touch Premium alternatives

    Don't bother with the charcoal ring and diffuser plate. Just doesn't work well in a 22" kettle. Everything gets too close to the cooking grate. A pain to top up fuel. I use a Fuse/Snake for long and low cooks on the kettle. Others use the Slow n Sear which gets very good reviews. I've had the...

    How good (or bad) is the Summit Kamado E6

    It's been a long time since I last posted on here. I'm still cooking outdoors, mostly on 22" Weber kettle(s) and now a UDS for low and slow. I need the space in my newly built BBQ shelter. Kids have left home so the cooks are smaller so the collection needs rationalising. The 22" WSM and a...
