A key advantage of Kamado Joe's ceramic vessel is its ability to insulate. Not only does this require less total heat for cooking, it also lets you cook at significantly higher temperatures, or at very low temperatures, for a significantly longer time. Combine this with the ability to not only control, but fine-tune the temperature, and you get a grill that is extremely versatile.
Kamado Joe can grill, sear and smoke!
- Grill - First and foremost, Kamado Joe is a grill. Its ceramic construction and unique shape, along with using lump charcoal, mean moister meats and wood-fire flavour.
- Sear - Thanks to the insulative properties of Kamado Joe and the ability of lump charcoal to generate significant heat, you'll be able to achieve temperatures up to 750° F. This means you can sear a steak. It will come off sizzling, just like it does at the high-end steak houses.
- Smoke - With Kamado Joe's ability to control temperature, and thanks to the long-burning stamina of lump charcoal, you'll be able to use your Kamado Joe as a smoker or a slow cooker (it will maintain high temperatures for up to 12 hours without adding lump charcoal).
Starts quickly; you'll be grilling in 15 minutes!
Lump charcoal lights more readily than briquettes. So, with a Kamado Joe fire starter or an electric starter, you'll be ready to grill in 15 minutes. That's about what it takes to get even the fastest-to-prepare meal ready to grill.
Dual-disc, cast-iron vent system lets you fine-tune temperatures
Kamado Joe features a unique, dual-disc top vent. The top disc (daisy wheel) is used for low-temperature cooking, while the bottom disc is used for grilling, baking, roasting and searing. This system gives you exceptional temperature control.
Less ash means easier cleaning
Because lump charcoal produces less ash than charcoal briquettes, you'll have considerably less cleaning with Kamado Joe. Plus, unburned lump charcoal can be re-ignited the next time you use your grill.
Compare fit and finish, stability
If you compare, you'll find Kamado Joe to be the best-built ceramic grill you can buy. The fit and finish are second to none, and the stability of the grill is unmatched, as well.
Minimal assembly required with Kamado Joe
You'll need to take your Kamado Joe out of the cardboard crate and do some basic assembly, but it's easy, and your Kamado Joe will be ready to go in minutes.
Kamado Joe comes nicely accessorised
Unlike other ceramic grills that come stripped down, Kamado Joe gives you everything you need to get started, including an extra-large built-in thermometer, finished folding bamboo side shelves, 304 stainless-steel grate with hinged door, a grill gripper, and a cart complete with oversized, locking caster wheels.
