Very good.

If you're curious about charcoal barbecue but don't want to spend heaps before you've discovered you like it, this is the one.

I bought the bbq, chimney, charcoal, baskets, digital thermometer, gauntlets (heat proof gloves), made a vortex from a stainless steel bowl I cut the bottom out of, and bought a gasmate camping stove to light my chimney, and had change out of 200.

Cooks great, and didn't cost the world. I suggest some YouTube tutorials to get comfortable, and you'll be cooking roasts and such in no time.

I do plan on upgrading to a Weber or something more expensive in future, but I can't fault this barbecue.

Purchased in for $65.

I just love this kettle bbq

published

Assembly was quite straight forward. The price was great. It has moveable charcoal baskets and flip edges to the top rack which makes it easy to add charcoal if required. Ash tray was easy to manoeuvre.
Great budget choice

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse Retail Stores for $119.

Soo good

published

You can cook all types of food and it's cook evenly and perfectly .its easy to clean and easy to carry sometimes it doesn't cope with wind which makes cooking harder .with rain it copes well because it had a big lid.but because of windy weather i haven't used recently

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $58.

Life is good since i bought this.

Lamb BBQ is the best in this BBQ. It is very easy to clean this machine, just scrub and it goes. Rain doesnt effect the BBQ but the wind does blow away the bbq so better keep it in safe place.

Purchased in at Aidacare Physical store for $130.

Basic Barbeque does a good job

published

This is the 'poor mans' Weber kettle. It s a little thinner and more cheaply made but its a good compact size and works perfectly well once its seasoned in. Its the charcoal that does all the work with these so your first few attempts might not be ideal until you get the "feel" for the timing. The key is patience until the heat settles down nice and low. I have got some pretty excellent results with this and I am happy to recommend this but it probably wont last a lifetime.

Easy maintenance & does a solid job

published

We bought this at Bunnings and have had this for 4 years now. So handy and portable. Just the right size for a small group of friends. Can cook large fish and more so the size works. Ours hasn’t gotten rusty and keeps well. Low maintenance. I’d recommend this for those who are beginners at BBQing and those who regularly BBQ and can do it well even without all the bells and whistles.

A Real Charcoal BBQ

published

I prefer real barbecuing over gas. We did have a stock standard gas barbeque before this but you might as well just cook inside! This brings out the real flavour of seared meat and I love it. It was a bit of a puzzle to put together but it's quite strong once you get it up. Results are awesome. A good choice and good value too.

Love it

published

Bought as a Christmas gift last year for son and everyone loved it.
Would be great to come with a cook book and/or cooking ideas.
Are a bit tricky to get right when using for the first time.
Google is always there to help.
Value for money but the cover to buy seperate a bit expensive.

Basic & Decent BBQ

published

Chose this as the first BBQ for our family, as it was one of the cheaper options from Bunnings. Putting it together was quite fiddly and painful, as the instructions were not very clear. Also workmanship is not the best, as some of the holes for screws were somehow only half drilled, and I had to finish drilling them open myself.

However, once it was all put together, it seems quite solid and robust. The height is just right for us, and the grill surface is nice and large. Happy enough with it for a simple charcoal BBQ.

New purchase to replace Weber Q, as we are sick of gas and the meat coming out grey. Very easy to setup and lightweight. Comes with a stand which is very helpful. Has vents that can be opened and closed to assist with heating up the bqq. Spacious and cooks well.

Good budget starter kettle bbq

published

I bought this as a starter kettle bbq before I could get a Weber. At the price, you can't really go wrong, just don't expect it to last a lifetime. It is a little bit flimsy. Overall, I was quite happy with how it works, it's just a good cheap way to get started with charcoal bbq.

You have to jiggle it a bit each side to get it level then add bulldog clips underneath plate to keep it rigid.

Hi I just bought the 57cm Jumbuck Black Kettle BBQ and my 17yr old daughter put it together, she did a fantastic job even the some of the screw holes werent drilled properly originally, we soon remedied that issue. Im about to use it for the first time, do I need to 'season it' first before cooking anything on it AND if so, how do i do this?
Thanks
Trace & Lucy-Anne
