This Canadian company http://blackolivegrill.com has ceramic pit with automatic pellet burner. In its web site it says made in north American. Indeed the ceramic is made in Mexico, and all metal parts are made in China. It is ASSEMBLED in north American. This year China exports 3000 sets to Canada. 3000 pieces shall be a good enough market share if it is a family business.

I've been a pellethead for years, but I'm also an Egghead. I see no reason to try to adapt an external burner to an Egg. I have run my large Egg for over 20 hours at 240 degrees on one load of lump. When I do have to open the lid it recovers temperature within 10 minutes, 15 if it's very cold out side. Why add extra cost to something that works extremely well as it is.

I have to disagree here. Maybe Traeger has temperature swings, but my FEC-100 and Memphis Pro do not. Once they are up to temp they hold temp very well.

It seems that most are against automatic pellet ceramic pit.
On the other hand the Canadian company made 3000 pieces of pellet ceramic pit in 2012

Only time will tell if their product will sell. I find it doubtful though, especially since they are in Canada and the market here is considered tiny compared to the US. Most US based customers are not gonna want to pay duty on their cooker crossing the border.

It seems that most ceramic cooker users agree that a burner would not be necessary if you know what you are doing, in a sense its almost like adding an extra wheel to a car that already has 4 wheels, its not needed.

It is said that http://blackolivegrill.com plans to sell 7000 pieces of this auto feed Kamado in 2013. What do you think, about the auto-feed of fuel
