Which Kamado to buy?

The range of YAKINIKU Kamados is very diverse and there is plenty of choice. The question "Which Kamado should you buy?" is therefore a legitimate one. At YAKINIKU, we're here to help and tell you everything you need to know.

The kamado bbq

The YAKINIKU Kamado is a barbecue developed after the traditional Japanese model. The oval shape of the Kamado provides optimal hot-air circulation, which leads to achieving high temperatures. The supply of oxygen can be precisely controlled by two air vents. This combination ensures that you always set the desired temperature and are therefore always in charge of your ceramic Kamado. You easily sear a steak on the outside and then let it cook further at a lower temperature. The Kamado is made of 33-millimetre-thick ceramic in combination with cordierite so that the heat is optimally retained. The advantage of this is that the charcoal consumption is 50 to 70 percent lower compared to an open barbecue where oxygen has free rein.
