Top 5 Kamado Grills

By , ShoppersChoice.com, LLC.

Our Top 5 recommended kamado charcoal grills represent the very best kamado ceramic grills. The ranking was based on a mix of ship time, quality, accessories, online customer reviews and remarks from previous customers. If you'd like to view our complete selection of kamado grills & accessories, please visit our Kamado Shop.


1. Primo Oval XL Ceramic Kamado Grill

Primo has one of the biggest cooking surfaces of all the kamado grills. Besides helping you cook more food, it also helps when you want to smoke ribs because it has more space for grilling racks. The grill also makes it more accommodating for pork loins, fish and other longer pieces of food, while still being big enough to do a pizza. All Kamados are very diverse allowing you to grill, smoke, and even bake, but Primo takes the cake with its multi-positioning cooking grids. The Primo also features a cast iron divider, which allows you to divide the kamado in half with separate cooking temperature zones. However, one thing to keep in mind about Primo is much of what makes the grill so versatile is not included and you will need to purchase those accessories separately. Best of all, all Primo Grills are made proudly in the USA!

4. Black Olive Pellet Kamado Grill

The Black Olive pellet kamado grill is the world's first ever kamado style pellet grill. The auger automatically feeds pellets into your fire box when you drop below your desired temperature, providing for consistent heat and high temperature. The hopper holds 11 pounds of pellets, providing for up to 40 hours of smoke time without needing to refill. Because your grill regulates temperature for you, there is no need to buy a separate controller for it, making this a truly all-in-one grill. Enjoy the ability to bake and smoke at low heat, or crank it up to grill and sear those perfect steaks.

5. Saffire Grill Kamado Style Charcoal Grill

The Saffire kamado grill prides itself on its stainless steel parts which outlasts other grills that use painted parts. The Saffire also gives you easier access through the cooking grid to add wood chips to your coal for smoking, unlike others that require you to remove several parts of the grill. The Saffire Grill may be installed in a masonry island so the cooking area is conveniently close to the counter top height and is aesthetically pleasing, while others require the grill to be elevated a few inches above the counter top to allow space for the hinge which pivot downward.

*Honorable Mention: (see below)

The following grill we listed as an honorable mention because it is a popular kamado grill but it's not available for online retail and in fact voids the warranty of the grill if it is purchased online. We decided that we would review this grill for those that simply looking for the difference between it and other types of Kamado Grills.

Big Green Egg
Honorable Mention:
Big Green Egg
The Big Green Egg used to be available for retail on our site for several years until it was pulled from online sales, and then Big Green Egg implemented a policy that voids the manufacturers warranty if the unit is purchased online. Just like any other kamado grill it has many great perks to it besides its cooking ability. This grill has tons of accessories that can be bought to cook anything and everything. These accessories make it a very versatile cooking unit that others cannot provide.
