It is not hard to cook with a kamado style grill. In fact, it’s very easy. Kamado style grills are very forgiving. But first, you must take some time to get used to your new grill. They are very different than conventional charcoal grills and gas grills. Since the ceramic style of the kamado style grill is very efficient in maintaining temperatures, you will not have to check on the grill as often. However, if the grill gets hotter than you want it to be, it can be difficult to lower the temperature because of the nature of ceramics. We are happy to talk you through this process in person.
