WHAT IS A KAMADO?

The Kokko is a Kamado. A kamado is a ceramic egg-shaped barbecue of Japanese origin. It is becoming more and more popular with traditional barbecues thanks to its versatility, ease of use and maintenance. With a kamado, you can grill, smoke, roast and cook all your food, together or separately. The temperature control is very precise: the thick ceramic structure allows the heat to be efficiently retained, even for more than 12 hours. This barbecue also has the advantage of consuming little charcoal.

"Buying a kamado is like owning a barbecue, a smoking room and a roasting pan in one cooking appliance. Thanks to the accessories, you can even bake pizzas, cakes and use them as a plancha."

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COOKING

GRILLING

SMOKING

ROASTING

BAKING

Japanese kamado is used for direct and indirect cooking. You can cook everything with: meat, fish, vegetables, etc. In the shape of an egg, the Kamado reproduces the operation of a rotary heat furnace thanks to the flow of hot air that circulates uniformly throughout the tank. Unlike a metal barbecue, the Kokko requires very little charcoal thanks to the ceramic which allows perfect insulation and concentration of heat.

A metal barbecue requires a lot of charcoal to compensate for heat loss. The more coal you use, the more air you need to maintain constant temperatures. This air can also quickly dry out meat, often causing it to shrink.

With the Kokko ceramic barbecue, you will need little charcoal because there is a better concentration of heat. This means less air to dry food, which will make your dishes tender and tasty.

HOW DOES A KAMADO WORK?

The Japanese Kamado is extremely simple to operate. During cooking, air flows evenly from the bottom, passing through the coals and exiting through the chimney. The coals are getting warmer and warmer because they are constantly fanned by the passing air flow.

THE HIGH THICKNESS OF THE CERAMIC PREVENTS HEAT LOSS AND CONCENTRATES THE TEMPERATURE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE SO THAT THE COALS QUICKLY TURN RED AND GLOWING.

The Kamado is equipped with 2 ventilation sources to manage the air flow. These vents are positioned at the top and bottom of the Kamado and can be easily adjusted.

When you have finished cooking, the easiest way is to close the 2 vents and the lid. The oxygen no longer enters, the coals are no longer supplied, the fire goes out.
