Char-Griller Kamado Akorn Grill



The new Char-Griller Kamado Akorn Grill, like its predecessor the King-Griller Kamado Kooker, is a double wall, insulated  steel egg that is much lighter, in some ways more durable, and way less expensive than ceramic Kamados. Char-Griller is well known for grills that are cheap to make and cheap to buy. Until now, they gave us what we paid for... Read More

Hōmdoor Charcoal Tandoor



The Homdoor Charcoal Tandoor is a traditional Indian clay oven which cooks meats and veggies on skewers, placed vertically into an open, upright cylindrical oven, and roasted at very high temperatures for a fairly short time. It has no cooking grate. Design, craftsmanship, and tradition have all come together in this tough, beautiful cooker... Read More

Kamado Joe's BigJoe is an extra-large, well-crafted ceramic cooker. The heft is impressive. Just lift the lid.

Bayou Classic Ceramic Cypress Grill



We heard a lot of bad news about Bayou Classic ceramics in the past. These cookers are outsourced to Chinese fabricators. Bayou Classic's parent company, Barbour International, claims they had quality problems with previous vendors, but have found new sources capable of producing much better product. Indeed, it appears satisfied owners are in the majority now... Read More

Grill Dome Infinity Series Large



This Kamado style cooker is Grill Dome's Large model, although not as large as their XL. Grill Dome's heavy construction is apparent. It would take a hefty shove to knock over one of these substantial grills, even without the stand... Read More
