The Kokko is quick and easy to start. It only takes about fifteen minutes to start cooking.
It is perfectly capable of maintaining a constant cooking temperature ranging between 100°C to 400°C.
It is also possible to keep a low temperature for more than 12 hours for smoking food.
This barbecue uses charcoal as a source of combustion, so it is 100% natural and economical.
Open the cover of the Kokko, remove the stainless-steel grid and place three to four sheets of newsprint folded into a ball at the bottom of the Kokko on the black cast iron plate. You can add one or two fire starters for greater efficiency.
Arrange your charcoal around the newspaper and fire starters . Light the newspaper with a match or gas lighter and let it burn for 40 to 60 seconds before closing the dome.
Now close the cover and gently open the chimney and trapdoor at the bottom of the Kokko. Due to the high air circulation, the coals will be ready in a few minutes.
Open the cover about five minutes after lighting and burning the fire starters . The charcoal starts to turn red, meaning it is glowing, and you can start cooking!
With the stainless-steel ash puller, you can stir your coals and distribute them in the Kokko if necessary.
You can now adjust the heat by limiting the air flow through the chimney and/or the bottom hatch. To sequence cooking, you can also add coal if necessary.
2. EASY TEMPERATURE CONTROL
For optimal cooking, the first thing to know is that you must reach a temperature higher than the desired one and then let the coal cool down. To reduce the temperature of the coal, it is enough to close the vents so that it is less supplied with oxygen.
In general, the opening at the bottom of the Kokko is the element that will have the most influence on the coal temperature. The type of charcoal and its quality can significantly affect the air control of the Kokko barbecue.
The Kokko ceramic barbecue is extremely easy to operate. During cooking, air flows evenly from the bottom, passing through the coals and exiting through the chimney. The coals get getting warmer and warmer because they are constantly fueled by the air.
To find the perfect temperature, simply adjust the air flow through the chimney and the trapdoor at the bottom of the barbecue. The more air you let into the Kokko, the more the coals will glow and the higher the temperature will get.
The cover of the Kokko is equipped with a thermometer for accurate measurements during cooking, providing easy temperature control.
