Shokunin kamado grill
Unlike any other Kamado grill.
So many people are passionate about the flavors and gentle, even heat of a traditional Japanese Kamado-style grill. Still, we saw an opportunity to innovate. The result: a new style of Kamado aptly named the Shokunin, after the Japanese word for artisan.
The Shokunin Kamado Grill is taller, so it’s more versatile—fire can be built further below the food, on the lowest of three levels. We dialed up the insulation, redesigned the cross-flow ventilation, and made multi-zone cooking easier. The construction has been likened to that of a luxury Swiss watch; incredible precision and attention to detail, all of it purpose-driven. The design is finished with ipe wood, a perfect complement to the sleek look of stainless steel.
Two full inches of insulation between two layers of stainless steel.
Heavy insulation makes the Shokunin wildly efficient—twelve pounds of charcoal can maintain 225° for 65 hours. And still the grill's exterior stays cool to the touch.
Versatility from three levels of fire.
With your food on the top level, you can build your fire at three different levels below—depending which position you choose, the Shokunin Kamado Grill can be a smoker for barbecue, an oven for roasting, or a grill to sear steak. Our Shokunin encourages endless experimentation.
Control fire, heat and smoke.
Our cross-ventilation system lets you feed oxygen to the fire on one side, while drawing heat and smoke over food. With two vents at top and two vents at the bottom, this innovative Kamado design allows for precise control while cooking.
Heavy-duty stainless steel. built to last.
Rigorous testing. Harsh environments. Everything we build—grills, cabinetry, everything—is made for the long run using 304 grade stainless steel. And if you live near saltwater, you can have your Shokunin Kamado Grill built with marine-grade stainless steel.
The Shokunin “outperforms any traditional ceramic kamado cooker in every way.”
“This is hands down the best Kamado I have ever had the pleasure of cooking on.”
“Just when we thought we’d seen everything in the world of kamados, Kalamazoo unveils their striking Shokunin Kamado Grill.”
