CONGRATS! We say that because if you're on this page, you've bought yourself a Pig Bluey BBQ and you'd like to learn how to put it together. If that's not the case, maybe you're trying to read every page of the internet and you'll finally found yourself here. Or you are trying to build a Big Green Egg, in which case you're in the wrong place. Welcome to the latter two people. 

To help you assemble the blue beast, please either watch the video below, or download a copy of our BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS here. 





If you'd like to learn a bit more about the Pig Bluey, read on your gorgeous person

Built-in a Kamado style (that's Japanese for stove) you can literally grill, smoke, bake, cook, roast anything you need. Whether you want it raging hot or smokin' low you can adjust the temperature easily. The Pig Bluey is MEGA efficient and needs very little charcoal to get going.   

At a Piggin' Glance:

  • Bold & blue.
  • Fancy thermometer fitted to the outside lid.
  • Cast iron ventilation cap which helps to control the airflow and therefore the internal temperature.
  • Made of high temperature resistant ceramics. 
  • 16 inch cooking grid (perfect for a whole chicken, couple of ribs or some big ol' juicy steaks).
  • Stainless steel door at base for ash collection and airflow.
  • Weighs in at 43kg and 47cm wide, 57cm high.
  • 2 year warranty. 


    • This bad boy can be lit in any weather condition and be ready to cook on in less than 15 minutes. 
    • A bag of charcoal is going to last you a hell of a lot longer than it does on a normal BBQ. 
    • Grill / smoke / bake / cook / roast, the choice is yours. It's piggin' versatile.
    • The Pig Bluey Mini BBQ is an ideal size to either be plonked in the garden or lobbed into the boot and taken out and about. You whip this out and your mate will look pretty sheepish with their supermarket disposable barbie.  
    • Cleaning is a simple as setting the temperature to 200°C and leaving it for 20 minutes. 

      How to Use:

      • The quality of BBQ coals is seriously important so go for as good as you can.
      • Slip a bunch of coals into the base, light, close the lid and open the air vents. This puppy gets hot and fast. 
      • Control the temperature with the air vents and when you're happy, slide those ribs on, grab a beer, sit back and stare at your BBQ for you are a bloody legend.
