Best Kamado Grills in 2019

  • Egg-shaped Grills are Versatile & Efficient

    If you want a do-it-all charcoal grill, a kamado is the way to go. Kamado style cookers have been around for centuries and originated in Asia. Modern kamado BBQs can be used for grilling, smoking, or baking – so you technically get three grills in one! You can sear steak, smoke a brisket, make pizza, bake bread, or cook virtually anything. Their insulating properties and egg-like shape allow for great heat retention and a delicious smoky flavor. Enhance the smoky flavor even more by adding real wood to the fire. Not all kamado grills are built the same, or offer the same benefits. The best kamados are incredibly fuel efficient, cooking for hours without the need for additional charcoal. With these top quality kamado grills, temperature maintenance is made easy with thick insulation and smartly designed air control vents. Here at BBQGuys, we’ve been testing kamado grills for over 20 years. To help you in your search, we've compiled this list of the best Kamado grills based on overall durability, cooking versatility, and available accessories.
