Benefits of Ceramic Kamado Cooking


From Ancient History to Modernized Luxury.

Kamado; Japanese term for “stove” or “place for the cauldron”.
A Kamado is a traditional Japanese wood or charcoal fueled cook stove. Historically, Kamado-style cooking has been a household staple used by the Chinese and Japanese for over 3,000 years due to its amazing flavor infusing capabilities. After World War II, the grill came to the attention of Americans and started to evolve out of the Japanese Mushikamado; a moveable stove designed to steam rice and used by families for ceremonial occasions.

Today, a Kamado is more than just a grill. It’s a representation of history, enduring usefulness and durability.


Monolith; massive piece of stone, often put in position in ancient times.
German engineers took the centuries-old tradition and built upon that age-proven foundation to create the Monolith.  First introduced in Europe, the ceramic charcoal grill has established an international reputation for its precision, innovation, and remarkable craftsmanship. Years later, renowned German engineering united with American ingenuity to masterfully design and create the most advanced ceramic charcoal grill in the world—Monolith BBQ Guru Edition.

Benefits of Ceramic Kamado Cooking
Remarkable moisture retention: Since air movement is minimal and very little oxygen is required to maintain temperature, meats will retain more of their natural juices. Enjoy incredibly tender, moist, and juicy food.

Fuel efficient: Compared to other grills, the Monolith consumes up to 50% less charcoal. Cook low and slow for up to 24 hours with just 5.5 – 6.6lb of charcoal

Traditional smoky flavor: Using the unique wood chip feeder system, flavored wood chips are placed in a chute and get directly pushed over the charcoal without having to raise the lid. This premium detail avoids unwanted temperature swings while adding a delicate, smoky flavor to your delicious cooked foods.

Unparalleled craftsmanship: The Monolith perfectly blends aesthetics with functionality. The combination of sleek black exterior, signature bamboo side tables, and high heat ceramic ensures a reliable, durable, and long-lasting ceramic grill for years to come.
