Charcoal Grills: This is the Best Charcoal Grill for Your Outdoor Kitchen
The debate over whether to get a charcoal versus gas grill is over. With a Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grill, you don’t have to choose. A Kalamazoo grill delivers the authentic flavor and cooking experience of a charcoal fire, plus it offers the convenience of starting that fire quickly and cleanly with gas. Kalamazoo charcoal grills feature a deep firebox design, which results in superior heat dynamics ideal for smoking, and direct, indirect and combination grilling. The hood vent can be opened and closed to raise and lower the temperature of a charcoal fire and to keep in smoke for barbecue.
Kalamazoo grills are charcoal grills unlike any other — offering the ultimate in outdoor cooking flexibility. A Kalamazoo grill can also cook with wood, in the same drawer used for charcoal. Use the three fuels interchangeably or at the same time. Compare all three barbecue fuels in your own backyard, with the Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grill.
Gas grills are convenient to fire up, maintain a more precise temperature and are typically easier to clean. But barbecuing with charcoal is a primal experience, giving you more interaction with the fire and creating a searing hot, dry heat – ideal for forming delicious caramelized crusts on food. And with the Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grill, charcoal grill cleanup is easy – just pull out our deep, stainless steel cleanout bin, which is large enough for several grilling sessions’ worth of ashes.
How to cook with a charcoal grill
The charcoal grill drawer is located directly above a series of powerful cast brass gas burners.
Load the charcoal grill drawer with lump charcoal or natural briquettes, and then fire up the gas burners underneath. Once the charcoal fire has started, you can turn the burners off and continue to cook using any charcoal grilling technique.
The pure flavor and dry heat of the charcoal fire create an authentic charcoal grill experience.
The ash from the charcoal fire drops through the perforations in the charcoal grill drawer, past the burners, and down the hopper into a convenient oversized cleanout bin large enough to handle multiple grilling sessions.
The burners are engineered to shed ash and feature a protective ledge above each of the burners. Burners are warranted for life.
