A big advantage of a ceramic grill is versatility; the ability to grill, smoke and sear. Why, then, we ask, do other grill makers not give you what you need to grill, smoke and sear? Instead, they require that you buy the necessary accessories. What are they thinking?! At Kamado Joe, we give you everything you need to grill, smoke and sear. We think that only makes sense. Yes, a Kamado Joe comes with all that!
The grill grate. It's been around for years. It hasn't really changed much. Hasn't really changed at all. It just sits there and gets dirty. What if we gave it something to do besides just sitting there? What if we halved it and allowed it to function on different levels to create different heat zones? To create more grilling space. What if we made it interchangeable with specialty cooking surfaces. What if we made it versatile and useful?
There is far less ash to deal with on a Kamado Joe relative to traditional briquette grills because lump charcoal burns cleaner. That said, there is still some ash. To make dealing with this ash easier than ever we have included a handy slide-out ash drawer that will keep things clean and easy!
The clever and revolutionary Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System replaces the ordinary grill grate. The key is the “Half Rack Design,” the halving of all components to allow for multi-level flexibility and multi-surface versatility. The two- piece cooking grid and multi-level rack give you three big advantages over the standard grill grate!
The Flexible Cooking System allows you to cook on two different levels at the same time, effectively doubling your cooking space! With the optional Grill Expander (sold separately) you can even cook on three levels. This gives you 660 square inches of total cooking surface – more than any other standard 18" grill!
The halved Kamado Joe Heat Deflector (included) allows you to create different heat zones within the grill at the same time. For example, on one side, you install a half Heat Deflector on the lower level and a cooking grate on the upper level. Here you can cook veggies with indirect heat. At the same time, on the other side, you install a half grate on the lower level to cook your meat.
The Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System also allows you to add custom halved cooking surfaces for even more cooking versatility!
Flat out the best ceramic grill on the planet! That may be a bold statement, but we invite you to look under the hood and see for yourself! If you compare Kamado Joe Ceramic Grill with other ceramic grills on the market, you’ll soon recognize that Kamado Joe’s the best built grill on the market and that fit and finish are second to none! But there’s a lot more to a Kamado Joe grill than meets the eye…
We may call Kamado Joe a grill, but it's really that and a whole lot more! 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 temperature, and you get a grill that is extremely versatile.
