Great for camping and at home
Received as a present but have wanted it for years. Initially for camping but have set it up in backyard. Good heat. Lovely bbq meats from it. Purchased from Snowys. Got the charcoal basket and grill plate and a cover for it. Love it!

Excellent bit of gear
Excellent cooker that can be used in many ways. Couldn’t be without my ozpig it comes camping, cooks roasts, smokes meat and can be used an a simple fire pit.
Purchased in August 2015 at Ozpig for $375.00.
Awesome product and quality build. Can't fault it. Gets nice and hot and is easy to cook on. Once you figure out how to burn in the chamber properly it will do everything you need
Purchased in April 2020 at Tentworld Physical store for $400.00.
Oz Pig is The Best
I have an ozpig at home and one at my holiday home. I travelled 17000km around Oz with my first pig. We cooked almost every night. Pizza, steaks, char veg, stir fry, big breakie. Everything tastes better on the pig. Now my kids have bought me the smoker oven last year, and the Big Pig for Chrissie this year. I am hooked. If you do not own an Ozpig, you are missing out, simple as that.
Cleaning the pig is easy, i use spray rice bran oil on plates and grills, a paint scraper and kitchen paper when the pig is hot. Easy.
Cannot reccomend the Pig etc highly enough.

Beautiful design, excellent functionality poor customer advice
My wife and I were excited with our recent big pig Ozpig model. The design itself is timeless, definitely a focal piece. Cooks great and radiates heat incredibly well. Unfortunately once we had purchased the unit, we needed the chimney offset extension only to find out that this model does not have an extension kit available. This is dissapointing as we use it 50% in our patio and 50% when camping. I contacted Ozpig support and this is the response I received " We are advising that if you need to offset the chimney out to go down to your local ...exhaust shop and they will be able to make something up for you" After paying $750 for the unit, to be told to pay for a custom fabricate chimney is absolutely ludicrous. If you are thinking of buying the big pig model - keep this in mind. Ozpig I suggest you are more tactful and understand the customers point of view. Be proactive and have solutions ready while you develop a permanent solution.
Purchased in May 2019 for $750.00.
Have a 9 year old ozpig and it has travelled with us around Australia..getting a bit old, so have bought the new large one for home, looking forward to it...

Overpriced Chinese rubbish
At the end of the day it’s just a metal cylinder so how the price can be more than twice as much as other similar products baffles me? Plus the fact it hardly works unless the top is open, the accessories are over priced as well. Would rather have bought a cheaper version as this one has rusted already and won’t ever get taken camping.
Great little cooker/heater that doesn't need a lot of practice to cook perfect roasts.
Packs away great
Fantastic additional features to purchase to keep the pig burning every night to cook something new each time
Very hardy and durable
Washes and cleans up quite easily
Easy to assemble and disassemble
I love how it packs away. A great camp stove/fire.
It all packs away into a handy carry bag, is easy to assemble (just screw the legs on, put the chimney pieces together, slot the plate in and you are away). With the charcoal basket it is even more flexible in places like caravan parks, etc. The rotisserie is brilliant and makes other campers envious. Brilliant. We use it when camping and also at home. There are lots of accessories that make it even more versatile. Not cheap, but will last a long time. We love it.
Cooking or heating. The pig is awesome
Have had the Ozpig for around 6 years now and it’s great. We go from cooking a roast, boiling the billy to using it for a fire place. It packs up small and uses only a small amount of wood compared to a fire pit. Take it camping everywhere and a lot of van parks permit you to have a fire in the pig
Best fire I have ever owned. Great for camping and cooking with the kids. We cook roasts on the spit to curry in the camp ovens and of course nice and contained for roasting marshmallows and boiling hot chocolate.
Very good range of accessories available and great price. highly recomend.
Great for camping & backyard parties
I've had my ozpig for around four years, and have enjoyed owning it.
I've used it many times in the backyard for parties to help everyone keep warm. It does look after the grass, and takes the flames higher off the grass than your typical firepit. However, if you run it very hot (by shoving timber down its throat) it will still dry out the grass beneath it. Not enough to kill it, I've given mine a big water the next day and in a week or so it's come good again. But definitely a dry patch for that time.
I've also taken it camping many times and have enjoyed many campfires around it. We've not done heaps of cooking on it, but have done some steaks on the hotplate as well as marshmallows of course!
Awesome for Cooking and Heating
When searching for a fire pit I came across the OzPig, the integration of the accessories is what finally sold me on one. Great for that open fire flavour to spit roasts and provides good area heating when stoked up a bit. Best when used with well seasoned timber to help prevent smoke
Best thing ever invented for camping
Couldn't live without it now. Been on many camping trips. Great little fire pit, cooking, spit roasting with coals or wood. Lots of accessories. Just brought a water tank to hang off side now have constant hot water with minimal fuss. Sorry just blabbering on because needed fifty words min. But we'll worth it.
The more I use it the better it is.
Great little versatile outdoor heater / bbq. Easy to transport and set up when travelling or st home. Have cooked some great meals on the bbq or using a camp oven. Cooks/ heats just as well with wood/ charcoal or heat beads. Active fb page with great suggestions and recipes. Accessories can be expensive.
Brilliant, a must have for camping
Love it. Wouldn't sell it for twice what I paid. Got all the extras. Love cooking on it and keeping warm by the little piggy. The kids love it too, perfect for roasting marshmallows. We even use it at home. Join the Ozpig Facebook group for tips on cooking and inspiration.
oink oink . best pig around
love it , take it camping all the time , when not camping we use it on our verandah, I often put casserole in pot in fridge and when hubby comes home , he lights the pig and cooks dinner. well and truly cooking when I come home. versatile and easy to clean . can use just as a small fire pit if you don't want to cook on it. haven't found anything negative about it .
Perfect Camping Companion.
Great compact cooker/heater. Sit it in under the awning in any weather with the offset flue. Cooks the best steak by far. Easy to use and many add on accessories to please all kinds of cooking methods. Nice warm heat or get a roaring fire going by removing the top plate and use as a fire pot.
Love my pig
Had mine for years best thing ever
Added a vented door and offset chimney and it’s mint
Can be smoky on startup but use small pieces and get it roaring
Extra leg kits a must tho heaps of accessories avail to suit anyone be good if a tad cheaper but overall I’d def buy another
Omg love my pig
Best investment ever love
