The hand crafted Bayou Classic grill makes every grill have a unique design.
It comes with a pre-assembled lid and this saves on assembling time.
Other features are the folding side tables, sty cool handles and build in thermometer.
This grill comes with an included cover and that is a nice extra since we always recommend the use of a quality cover.

Customer Reviews of the Bayou classic cypress grill

(Back to Top)

“I never leave reviews but thought it might be useful in this case. I purchased this grill over a year ago for approx $699. At that time I compared to the Big Green Egg and Primo. The reviews at that time were mixed with several people noting that the quality of the Cypress was not in the same league as the Primo/BGE products. This is simply NOT THE CASE. Of the three brands, I felt like the Big Green Egg had a slightly better fit and finish with the Primo and Cypress being comparable…(read more here: Bayu Classic Review)”

“I have had my grill for 2 months now. LOVE the way it cooks. Best pizza ever. I have to say it puts any restaurants pizza to shame. I am a baker and did my first bread tonight. INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!! More to follow. as I do more. I only wish it were a little bigger. This is the same size as the large big green egg.
If anything ever happened to this, I would go straight out and buy another….(read more here: Bayou Classic Review)”

    Summary of what we think of the Bayou Classic Cypress Ceramic grill

    (Back to Top)
    Click here to find the price on Amazon The Bayou Classic grill review took a lot of reading and digging to make up our mind about this grill
    The remarks and opinions about this ceramic Kamado type grill are mixed, but there are some thing we found that came back in a lot of customer experience.
    The grill performs well after most users did some modifications like making it better air-tight.
    There are 2 ways of looking at this grill and it depend on how you like to use it and how demanding you are in your grilling.
    For the average user this is a nice grill and it will perform well.
    For the more serious and experienced griller there are thing that have to be fixed first.
    Things like making it more air tight including the vents.
    The quality can not be compared with the big green egg or other Kamado grills in that price range.
    This is maybe a lesser quality, but the price is also a lot less.
    Overall this grill performs good after the mentioned modifications.
    There were remarks about cracks in the wall or lid and I don’t know if this grill cracks more than others, but it looks like it.
    With a five year warranty and the great customer service a replacement part or refund have not been a problem is what we read.
    Personally I think, after reading a lot about the Bayou Classic that a 4.1 rating is a little low for this grill.
