Kamado BBQ Grill and Smoker

A kamado is a traditional Japanese wood or charcoal fuelled cook stove. The name Kamado is, in fact, the Japanese word for “stove” or “cooking range”. Literally, it means “place for the cauldron”. A movable Kamado called “Mushikamado” came to the attention of Americans after the Second World War and is now found in the US as a Kamado BBQ style cooker or Barbecue grill. The Mushikamado is a round clay pot with a removable domed clay lid and was typically found in Southern Japan.
