Choosing a Kamado Joe BBQ

The story behind Kamado Joe BBQs

Each Kamado Joe BBQ has been designed for people that love to cook by people that love to cook. Tired of using charcoal barbecues with poor functionality, the makers of Kamado Joe grills were inspired to design and develop an all-round better barbecue. And, that’s exactly what they did. With smarter features and more innovative accessories, Kamado Joe BBQs have been crafted to perform better than your standard garden grill, with the hope of providing a truly exceptional barbecuing experience.

What are the key features of a Kamado Joe Grill?

One of the most eye-catching features of a Kamado Joe Grill is its egg-shaped design. Bright red in colour, the shape of the Kamado Joe BBQ was inspired by an ancient, Asian-style grill, which encourages air to flow through the ceramic body and out the vented dome. With this traditional method of cooking in mind, Kamado Joe were able to modernise the design with innovative functionality.

Aside from their bold exterior design, the technology behind Kamado Joe barbecues is what makes them really stand out against the crowd. Their patented Divide and Conquer Flexible Cooking System revolutionised the barbecue industry. With a multi-level, half rack design, Kamado Joe made it possible to cook different foods in different styles at different temperatures, all at the same time. Gone are the days of batch cooking or overcrowding your barbecue grill, as Kamado Joe’s tiered grates effectively double your cooking space.

With a flexible cooking system, heat-resistant shell and precision ventilation dial, outdoor cooking has never been easier than with a Kamado Joe grill.

What can you cook with a Kamado Joe BBQ?

With their innovative half rack design, Kamado Joe grills are more than capable of taking on your classic barbecue items, such as sausages, burgers, chicken wings and corn on the cobs. But, why stop there? At Kamado Joe, they’ve designed a huge range of additional features, enabling you to take your barbecue to the next level and really cook up a storm.

As one of their most popular accessories, the JoeTisserie transforms the Kamado Joe BBQ into a self-basting rotisserie. With a quiet but powerful motor, the JoeTisserie can spin up to 50 pounds of chicken or prime rib, turning your Kamado Joe grill into a must-have cooking appliance.

But that’s not all. Having quickly positioned themselves as one of the most versatile barbecue brands on the market, Kamado Joe set about creating the DoJoe. Ideal for both beginners and expert chefs alike, the DoJoe effectively transforms your Kamado Joe grill into a state-of-the-art pizza oven. With a high-quality ceramic pizza stone, the DoJoe provides the ultimate pizza cooking experience.

While your Kamado Joe Grill will have traditional stainless-steel grates included, Kamado Joe also supply a wide range of interchangeable cooking surfaces. With cast iron griddles, laser-cut stainless-steel surfaces and soapstone slabs, you can tailor your Kamado Joe BBQ around your cooking needs.

From fish and vegetables to ribs and rotisserie, the real question should be what can’t you cook with a Kamado Joe BBQ?
