The castings are from the West Midlands, the glass from Coventry and the removable beech wood door handles are hand turned from British Beech from Yorkshire. Our display model is in the beautiful new French Grey colour, which along with Soft Green is exclusive to the Bembridge. Black, Almond and Gunmetal are also available.

Camping holiday? Take an Ozpig with you …

Posted by on Jun 25, 2015 in Blog |

  If you’re planning a camping holiday, or just looking forward to spending as much time in the back garden as you can this summer, then an Ozpig makes an excellent companion! The Ozpig isn’t an open fire, it’s fully contained, raised off the ground, and has a spark arrestor on top of the chimney to reduce the risk of embers escaping. There’s also an air vent so the door can be kept closed. This means that although lots of campsites ban open fires, many will accept an Ozpig. If the back garden is as far as you’re venturing this summer, then the Ozpig is still really useful and lots of fun to use as an outdoor heater (and marshmallow toaster!), or for cooking a full meal on. We have an Ozpig on display in the showroom, along with the Classic and Junior Kamado Joe ceramic grills and a Fornetto wood fired oven. Check out the Ozpig YouTube channel to see it in...

Ceramic Grills from Kamado Joe. Wood Fire Flavour!

Posted by on Jun 20, 2015 in Blog |

We were really pleased to see the Kamado Joe Classic ceramic grill BBQ included in the Telegraph’s best BBQs to buy list recently. We have a smart red Kamado Joe Classic 18” on display, along with the smaller Joe Jr., which is perfect for taking on camping holidays. Unlike other ceramic grills a Kamado Joe comes with everything you’ll need to grill, sear and smoke as standard, and allows you to create different heat zones with its half rack design. So you can cook vegetables higher up on a half sized grill with a half sized heat deflector underneath, and at the same time, cook meat on the other half sized grill lower down and closer to the heat. There’s also the option of adding handy extras to create up to three levels of cooking ( a total of 660 sq. in.), and specialist cooking surfaces like a pizza stone, cast iron griddles, fish or veggie grates. There’s even a chicken stand you can fill with liquid (marinades, juices, beer etc.) to impart flavour and keep the meat moist. Kamado Joe ceramic grills are insulated so that the heat is stored, and the rounded shape allows heat to circulate so that the food is cooked more evenly. ‘Kamado Joe keeps the heat in the grill and the moisture in the meat’. Visit us in the showroom to take a closer look at the Kamado Joe Classic, or call us on 01227 787587 for more information. To see the Kamado Joe ceramic grills in action, visit their cooking channel for recipes and instructional videos!          ...
