    Pros - Beautiful, durable glazed finish, more versatile than gas and other kettle-style charcoal grills, more efficient than offset smokers.
    Cons - Not many after 4 years of use. None stand out. HInges are a bit rusty, had to change the seals, but after 4 years, I consider that normal.
    I got this Bayou Classics Cypress Ceramic grill for Father's day in '07. I have used it to sear steaks at 700* dome temps(around 1100* at grill), but I use it most often for long slow cooks of pork shoulder and beef brisket. I have gone for 27 hours straight at 200-225* on a single charge of charcoal.

    This is soo much easier than feeding an offset smoker all night.

    I know some of the other kamados in the market can do this just as well as my Cypress but can you find them anywhere near this price? With this nice of a finish?

    I have also made pizza, blueberry cobbler, bread, sate's and many other varieties of food in this cooker. Whole chickens end up crispy skinned and juicy. Seafood comes out perfect, quickly.

    I guess the only real negative I can say about this cooker would apply to all the other kamado style cookers out there as well. This is not a quick, "fire it up and go" type cooking tool. It is much more convenient to throw things like hotdogs on the gas grill if that's the only thing you are cooking thaty night. However, if some are having steak, etc. then there's plenty of room on the side to get your dogs on there too.

    I have fit 2- huge 9 pound Boston Butts on the grill before, plenty of cook space. This was the cook that ran 27 hours, most go for 20-22 hours.

    Hope this helps some,

    Pros - Ease of use, temperature control
    Cons - None yet
    I am very satisfied with this smoker!  Have seared steaks and smoked beer can chicken with excellent results.  Lights very easy and also can maintain a fixed temperature.  Reaches up to 700 degrees which allows for well-seared, juicy steaks.  Highly recommend it!  [​IMG]

    Nice. I too got mine for Fathers Day in 07.
    I love mine. I've changed the gaskets probably 4 times now and replaced the firebox ceramic liner after 8 years.
    I know this; I'll never be without a kamodo ever again.

    I got one about 5 years ago. I love it as well! I've added the DigiQ setup to it to help it hold a constant temperature. Works well.

    Okay, that does it. I am a full blown Kamado convert. There are just too many positives and virtually no negatives to owning one of these that I can see. Saw one of the Bayou Classics at Lowes this past Sunday and fell in love with it. Guess it's Lowes gift cards on my wish list this year! Can't wait to get one and start cooking with it.
