Always use high-quality charcoal in your Kamado. We recommend you to use 100% natural charcoal, such as BBQ Flavour Marabu. This charcoal not only lasts longer, but also produces less smoke. In addition, many types of charcoal contain chemical additives, which will cancel out the natural taste of your dish.
The length of your grilling session and the temperature at which you want to grill determines the desired amount of charcoal. When using the spit, it is best not to use too much charcoal to avoid high temperatures. When baking pizzas, it is necessary to fill the basket to the brim in order to get the Kamado up to a high temperature.
The ideal thing about a Kamado is that your charcoal goes out when you close the air vents, so you can easily reuse it. Don't forget to shake the charcoal basket before you start a new grilling session.
