What Makes The Grill Dome Kamado Different From Other Ceramic Barbecues?

Kamado barbecues are becoming more and more popular (and rightly so) but what make the Grill Dome kamado stand out from its rivals?

I’ve been cooking on a kamado for a number of years now and I have to say that the results are fantastic whether grilling or smoking.

What never ceases to amaze me is how economic it is on fuel and how quickly it comes up to temperature – in fact they’re so good that I don’t think I’ll ever go back to a gas grill.

The Grill Dome claim is that it’s ready to cook on in 5 minutes and only uses 30% of the charcoal compared to a traditional smoker or grill. Speaking from experience I think that the ready to cook claim should be about 15 minutes.

There are an increasing number of kamados on the market now and I guess the Big Green Egg is still the most widely known – and great if you want your grill colored green! It’s aggressively marketed and the distribution channels are tightly controlled resulting in only one thing – a poor deal for you and me.

The Primo kamado is another one worth looking at. To be fair it is close in price to the Big Green Egg but it does have a unique feature in being oval in shape and this is surprisingly handy when it comes to cooking large pieces of meat.

The simple beauty of the Grill Dome is not the multitude of colors (black, green, blue, red or pink), its fuel economy, the speed at which it heats up or indeed its shape, it’s the fact that you can buy direct on the internet and get the kamado that you’ve always dreamed of at a reasonable price.

Note:- When comparing prices between the various kamado manufacturers make double sure you are comparing apples with apples. Some manufacturers include and number of parts in the base price, others price them as extras and this can differentiate the price markedly. If you don't particularly want that piece of equipment then you're in luck and you will get a better price.

Grill Dome is a great entry level model to kamado cooking but if I had my money again (and could afford any kamado on the market) I would probably go for the extra versatility offered by the Primo XL Oval
