I am a newbie (from VIC) to the Kamado cooking and to the forum , just thought to share some info which may help another one in finding the compatible accessories from other brands.
- bought my first kamado ( Char-griller ceramic ) from bunnings ( was lucky to grab a display unit at Notting Hill bunnings for $500).
- after few unsuccessful attempts to get information about the compatible heat deflector for that model from bunnings I noted that I can order one online from their website ( around 60 AUD as per my memory).
But I wasn't happy with that and kept on scouring the web for more options ( even looked at a DYI solution but gave up due to the difficulty of bending steel etc ).
luckily I landed on the 'Kamado size confusion thread' on this forum and got to confirm my thought about the accessories must be driven by the diameter size ofthe kamado.
So I went ahead and bought a 'Egg-spander' basket which is a OEM part for Big Green Egg to be used as the cooking grid and heat defector ( 33 - 35 cm pizza stone) holder , and I can say it's miles ahead than the bunnings version of the heat deflector. (This is good value for money at 85 AUD compared to 60 AUD part from bunnings which is just a deflector)
In case of Char-griller ceramic ( 18 inch ) , almost all the accessories from Big Green Egg 'Large' and Kamado Joe 'Classic' are compatible with this model.
Thanks and hope the above info may be helpful to someone new :).
