They mentioned in a FB post that they "are working on adapter kit".

I haven't seen one either, but they would be intriguing if I was in the market for a Kamado. As Babyback Maniac has pointed out it is basically a Kamado and works like one. It has the following benefits over a ceramic:

Superior ash management system
Easier to light charcoal
Lighter and easier to move
Won't crack
Comes with a built in cart and or table
Can move the charcoal grate up or down for searing or smoking
Comes with all of the accessories you need out of the box
If you over shoot your temps, it is easier to get them back down

All very solid points that I considered, and it's a beautiful unit for sure. I live in an area that wind and snow are an issue in the winter months and I just don't see the summit being as insulated as a ceramic cooker. Not to mention, and this is just me, I'm struggling with the idea of near 2k for stamped metal.
