Traditionally crafted from ceramics in a rounded, egg-like shape, Kamado grills are outstanding for their heat retention and versatility. Kalamazoo's Shokunin takes these same traits but uses a rectangular design rendered in thick 304-grade stainless steel. With two inches of insulation, it can support internal temps up to 1,200º F while still remaining cool to the touch and offers a multi-tiered fire grate. The bottom position is ideal for smoking, the middle for roasting, and the top lets it serve as a traditional charcoal grill, with its shape providing added cooking space and the ability to cook with an offset fire. Far from a casual griller, it weighs over 200 pounds and is built by hand in Michigan.
