The kamado was invented in China, spread to Korea, and eventually made its way to Japan.[1] The name kamado is the Japanese word for “stove” or “cooking range”. It means a “place for the cauldron”.

A kamado grill is a type of charcoal grill that is designed to cook food using indirect heat and smoke. It is made of thick ceramic walls, which help to retain heat and moisture, and has a vent at the top and bottom to control airflow and temperature.

It is versatile and can be used for grilling and smoking. Flat-bread, such as pizza, can be cooked on a flat ceramic or stone tray (pizza stone). This is by virtue of the heat retention properties of the ceramic shell with temperatures up to 750 °F (400 °C). Precise control of airflow (and thus temperature) afforded by the vent system means Kamado-style cookers  can be used to roast and bake.

Although Kamado grills originated in Japan and were traditionally made from clay, the modern versions are often made from ceramic. Due to their excellent heat retention and distribution, kamado grills are able to maintain consistent temperatures over long periods of time, making them ideal for slow-cooking meats or smoking foods as well as your quicker BBQ food such as Burgers, Sausages and fish.

What Makes the Famous Kamado Grill So Good?

Typical barbecue grills will dry food out, sucking all the moisture from them as it cooks them from the bottom up. The Kamado helps food retain moisture. Remember, the original design existed as a rice cooker, and rice cannot cook unless it has moisture that stays in it.

The Famous  Kamado grills can maintain temperatures as low as 250 degrees and reach temperatures as high as 750. This high temperature is maintained with extensive vent systems, perfect for Grilling all year round. Save on your gas and electric bill and Famous Kamado Grill it!
