This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Ceramic egg barbecues are modern versions of the Japanese kamado, a traditional earthenware cooking urn that dates back over 3,000 years. The reason they have been around so long is the amazing versatility they offer. You can grill, bake, and smoke inside them, allowing you to prepare a range of different dishes. Because they are well insulated, they are also more efficient than standard grills. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 08, 2018:

When finding the best ceramic grills we took a number of different properties into account. Since the majority of these will spend most of their time outdoors, we wanted to find models that can withstand exposure to the elements for years. We also made sure to include models capable of extremely hot temperatures, but that still offered convenient ways to control the heat and airflow for precise cooking.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
