Smoking: the Kamado is also good for smoking food using wood chips, giving it a subtle smoky flavour. Smoking is especially popular for meat and fish. In all Kamado models (except the mini), you can make good use of the Woodchipper for this purpose. This provides a double insulated access to add smoking wood without losing heat.Baking: the Kamado is also suitable for baking, such as bread and pizza. With its ceramic outer layer and the ability to accurately control the temperature, you can hold a certain temperature well and bake food evenly.
Braising: Due to the low temperature settings on a Kamado, you can braise food in a slow and gradual way. This is ideal for stews, goulash or pulled pork, for example. This way of cooking is also called low and slow because of the lower temperature and long cooking time. Many low and slow kamado recipes use this technique.
Sautéing: using a wok pan also allows for good sautéing. This is ideal for preparing stir-fries, potatoes and vegetables, for example.

To cook a nice piece of meat at the highest possible temperatures on a Kamado, it is important that the Kamado is well warm so that you can achieve an even temperature. When using plate setters, you can regulate this heat even better and prevent the meat from burning.
To prepare nice cuts of meat, such as ribeye or steak, sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper and let it come to room temperature before grilling it on the Kamado. Grill the meat at high temperature until it has a nice brown crust on both sides and has reached the right doneness.
Grilled vegetables are a delicious and healthy side dish on the Kamado. Cut the vegetables into large pieces and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill the vegetables over medium-high heat until tender and slightly caramelised.
Baking pizzas on a Kamado is a great way to make delicious crispy pizzas. For this Kamado pizza recipe, use a plate setter to regulate the temperature and place the pizza on it when the temperature is around 230 degrees.
