Why Choose Kamado Joe?
Kamado Joe cooks three ways, ignites quickly, requires almost no assembly, comes nicely accessorised and is guaranteed.
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 keeps the heat in the grill and the moisture in the meat!
The well-insulated ceramic body of a Kamado Joe grill keeps the heat in the grill. The unique circular shape of the vessel also circulates the heat for more uniform and effective cooking. Compare this with gas grills, which let heat escape and cook largely from below. This means they need a larger fire and more total heat to achieve the same temperature profile as a Kamado Joe. It’s this excessive heat that robs moisture from your meat. Kamado Joe keeps the heat in the grill and the moisture in the meat.
Kamado Joe uses lump charcoal which is real wood and gives you wood-fire flavour!
The amazing wood-fire flavour you get when grilling on a Kamado Joe grill comes from the lump charcoal that ceramic grills are designed to use. Lump charcoal, unlike charcoal briquettes, is made from pieces of real wood, so it imparts a wonderful wood-fire flavour to your grilled food, a flavour you just won’t get from a gas grill!
