    A Real Bastard!

    EA | 27 January 2019 | In the version: 4 people | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • High quality material
    • Size more than adequate for 4p
    • Finish and appearance
    • Delivery Coolblue
    • Still very heavy to move

    Bought Bastard compact to supplement other bbqs. All kamados extensively compared. Best kamados at the moment are BGE, Bastard and Kamado Joe. In particular due to the use of material (cordierite), thickness of the wall, finish and warranty. Format is personal to everyone. Compact does exactly the same as a medium or larger. Bastard chosen mainly by price difference BGE, finish (much better than BGE) and NL team is behind. Choice for Coolblue in particular because of great service, right to exist in the future (due to possible warranty mediation and vs other online providers). Good service and aftercare also emphasized by a card that was sent afterwards by the extremely helpful and professional deliverers.

    Really perfect, I should have bought sooner

    • bastard is well finished, complete with stand and can also withstand frost (so can be outside all year round)
    • all accessories are especially for this compact and fit exactly and here too a high quality
    • cooking or baking in wind or rain no problem
    • temperature control works fine according to Bastard's schedule
    • you still need some accessories

    I've had the Bastard for 3 weeks now and use it almost daily.
    It takes some getting used to in the beginning, because you don't see the coals and the meat.
    At my old barbecue I ran every 4-5 minutes to check and turn the meat. Actually, I was constantly busy.
    With a bastard it is much quieter.
    A bastard heats the meat all around, because it is an oven.
    Set the temperature according to the recipe and use the specified time, turn the meat after half the time. Then use a core temperature meter and as soon as the set temperature is reached, the thermometer will beep and your meat is really perfect.
    For good grilling you still need a cast iron grid and a grid lifter to place and remove the grid. Grid weighs over 3 kilos.
    A Plate-setter (heat shield) for indirect cooking/baking/grilling, such as grilling salmon on the skin.
    And another pizza stone for the pizza (also indirectly but at 300-350 degrees) and yes then the pizza also tastes like the real Italian stone oven pizza.

    A very big advantage is that while baking, you can just sit quietly at the table with a glass of wine and a good conversation.
    So no more stress and quietly wait for the beeping of your thermometer.
    Really perfect.

    should you still have doubts?
    Look in the book, hot coals.
    It explains the origin, use, accessories and possibilities of the kamado.

    Top product

    H Dammers | 16 August 2019 | In the version: 7 people - Underframe and side tables | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Can be used as an outdoor oven
    • Great if you like cooking
    • Prepare delicious recipes
    • Purchase price

    If you like cooking you can fulfill your wishes with this, if you are inexperienced and you are not sure if you should buy one I would say do it. You get excited with every use and you start experimenting automatically

    Beautiful, sturdy and sturdy.
    • Super beautiful
    • Like any kamado you have to learn to deal with it
    • firm
    • Price
    • Very heavy

    Delivered super fast. Well packed. Because it is so heavy, it is difficult to move. But this also means that it will not fall over. Results so far great!!!

    Beautiful BBQ with which your small portion can BBQ fun and
    • Quality of the material
    • Can BBQ beautifully with it
    • Nice to BBQ with
    • Small prepared surface (just enough for small portions of 4 people)
    • No accessories included
    • Accessories pricey
    • Stainless steel grill grate included instead of cast iron

    It's a different way of BBQing on a kamado. But after some research this can be done beautifully with this BBQ.

    Eclectic cooking machine that makes restaurant food pale.
    • When setting up you need friends, so immediately cause for a party!
    • Perfectly finished
    • Many accessories available
    • Many possible forms of cooking
    • An asset to any garden
    • Too heavy to lift yourself - so you should immediately invite friends to set it up and come over for dinner.
    • You keep baking and you are outside more than inside

    What a beast - neatly placed in the garden by Coolblue - comes in, say - phew! It is clear from the first moment that this is going to be fun. Unpacked of course and there it is (although still in the same place because the thing can't be lifted on your own): a great even black glossy cooking machine. Be it smoking, grilling or reverse sear, this machine doesn't give a shit. Your own creativity is your only limitation - and that is a must with the master grill masters.

    To doubt? Don't - just buy! Everything tastes better on a Bastard. Moreover, you never have to choose an expensive piece of meat in a restaurant. Just order a fried schnitzel there. Do you have something to eat for the form and you can bring the elitist fried cows and pigs (or vegetables - does it matter to you; the Bastard even less) to an unprecedented level at home.

    More control during bbq and the result is great.
    • Small compact
    • More control over doneness/grilling, so it tastes better
    • all-rounder. BBQ grilling baking yarn smoking pizza
    • Pretty pricey

    Bbqing is now much easier and the flavors are delicious.
