  1. Where did ceramic cookers come from? 
    Who invented the kamado style barbecue cooker? It isn't who you think. A gentleman named Farhad Sazegar holds the only utility patent for a kamado-style barbecue cooker. Here is some very interesting information about patents and who has 'em and who doesn't! 

  2. Where did the word "kamado" really come from? 
    Where did the word "kamado" really come from? Well, considering the word is thousands of years old, we're pretty sure it wasn't invented in the sixties by a certain importer of clay cookers. Here are the results of our research into the origins of this word. 

  3. How do you pronounce the "kamado"? 
    Almost everyone pronounces the word incorrectly, if you consider it is a Japanese word. Here is an explanation of how to correctly pronounce "kamado". 

  4. How are ceramic cookers constructed? 
    Ceramic cookers are made of various materials and the use of the term "ceramic" is quite loose in the industry. Materials include "space age" ceramics, terra cotta, refractory materials and portland cement mixed with lava rock. The walls of ceramic cookers walls are heavy and thick with the thickness varying depending on the maker. The temperature tolerated by these materials varies, but most makes can easily withstand cooking temperatures up to 1000 degrees. However, you should follow the instructions that come with your particular cooker. But this allows you to sear your steaks at 700° or more, smoke your barbecue at 200° or less, and roast and bake at all temperatures in between. Ceramic cookers will maintain the temperature you set due to their good insulating characteristics, and perform well at high and low temperatures!

  5. How do you control temperature on ceramic cookers? 
    You control temperature by controlling the amount of air that enters and exits the cooker. Ceramic cookers have a vent at the bottom of the cooker and a vent at the top of the cooker. Both vents are adjustable in some way so that you can precisely control the airflow. By controlling the airflow, you can control the temperature to within a few degrees. More details about temperature control can be found by reading our web page on Temperature Control. 

  6. How hot can you sear meats on a cooker? 
    You can sear meats at very high temperatures on ceramic cookers due to the fact that you will be using lump charcoal, which burns hotter than briquettes, and due to the fact that ceramic cookers can be closed up except for vents at the bottom and the top. This creates a chimney effect which fans the fire and gets it much hotter than charcoal sitting in a typical open type of charcoal grill with no draft. More details with specific temperature information can be found by reading our web page on Searing Temperatures. 

  7. What range of temperatures can you use to cook on a ceramic cooker? 
    The range of temperatures you can use on a ceramic charcoal cooker is truly amazing. You can cold smoke cheese at 85 degrees, sear steaks at over 1200 degrees and do lots more at every temperature in between. A graphic representation along with recipes that demonstrate the range can be found by viewing our Ceramic Thermometer web page. 

  8. Can I use ceramic cookers in the rain? 
    Yes. Ceramic cookers work great in the rain. In a real downpour, you may need to fashion some sort of protection over the top vent to prevent water from entering the cooker, but rain shouldn't stop you from using a ceramic cooker. Below are a couple of photos of two owners' solution. Of course umbrellas, stove pipe caps, and any number of other methods could be used.
