Hello Newbie from the UK (introduced myself already) I am looking for an honest answer to my question please.
Here in the UK the Kamado Classic is cheaper than the Keg by about £60. I am not sure on the pricing in the US or Canada but would you still recommend the KEG over the Classic given the dearer price in the UK?

Welcome!

Do you have a link to the Kamado Classic?  I'm not familiar...

Both are great cookers.  That being said, the Keg gives you some things a ceramic can't.  Steel is much tougher than refractory material(ceramic), the Keg is vastly more portable and in my opinion anyway, much more versatile.  The Keg can handle higher temps much better, and it's insulation is superior, especially if you have children who will be around the hot grill.  The keg's exterior temps are much lower in use than ceramic.  Besides, we have this awesome forum with all this amazing knowledge!!

I've had the keg since it was Bubba Keg. Six or seven years I'd guess?  It's a fantastic grill and well worth the 60.  I've also used a ceramic Kamado Joe and prefer my Keg.  I've also used the hitch adapter on some camping trips and love it.
