What is a Kamado Joe Grill?

A Kamado Joe Grill is a ceramic-style charcoal grill similar to the popular Big Green Egg. In fact, there’s a slight rivalry among Big Green Egg and Kamado Joe owners over which grill is the best! While these recipes will work for any ceramic-style grill, I am definitely team Kamado Joe here!

It is designed to mimic the traditional Japanese Kamado style of cooking, which involves using a large, clay pot heated by charcoal to create a unique, smoky flavor. Kamado Joe grills are made from high-quality ceramic materials and are known for their durability, heat retention, and versatility. I can definitely attest to their ability to retain heat as we grill year-round including in sub-zero temperatures!

Brand New Kamado Joe

Kamado Joe recipes are created for grilling, smoking, roasting, and baking a wide range of foods, making them a popular choice for outdoor cooking enthusiasts. The grills are available in various sizes and configurations, allowing users to choose the model that best fits their cooking needs.

Many people opt for the Kamado Joe because of the wide range of Kamado Joe accessories available. Unlike the Big Green Egg, the Kamado Joe allows you to customize your grilling experience with an array of add-ons. This gives you the opportunity to experiment with different cooking methods and techniques, making your outdoor cooking adventure even more thrilling. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a novice cook, the Kamado Joe has something to offer for everyone.
