Grilla Grills Kong is a ceramic kamado grill made of heavy-duty ceramic for grilling, smoking, baking, and roasting. The Kong uses lump charcoal for excellent flavor, something that your average gas grill can’t touch. The ancient design of kamado grills goes back at least 3,000 years. These grills, also sometimes referred to as “egg smokers” due to their shape, are able to retain heat and moisture for extended cooking. The Kong does an amazing job with grilled pizza, as the ceramic dome absorbs and radiates heat much like a professional pizza oven while reaching temperatures as high as 700 degrees. This ceramic kamado grill can do much more than pizza, however, it’s ideal for just about any BBQ meal as it does an excellent job of maintaining temperature and retaining moisture in your food. The grill includes a dome temperature gauge, adjustable vent, EZ glide wheels, a sure-latch lid and stainless-steel cooking grates. The attached, twin work surfaces fold down for easy storage.


Kong Charcoal Kamado Grill Features

The sky’s the limit on a Kong grill! In addition to the use of lump charcoal, which burns hotter than charcoal briquettes, you can add wood chips to add even more flavor to your meal.  Making this animal the more versatile choice.

Extra Large Interior

So you want to cook a feast? The Kong has enough space for you to feed an army. Check out the dimensions on this beast:

  • Main Cooking Area: 20.5" Diameter=329″
  • Upper Cooking Area: 20" Diameter=314″
  • Total Cooking Area: 643″
  • 304 Stainless steel grids

Heat Technology

The Kong is built to reach high temperatures but can also maintain temps for a low and slow cook. The calibrated cast aluminum damper at the top along with the stainless-steel adjustable slide plate at the base control airflow and provide precise grilling temperatures for amazing results. The Kong can reach temperatures up to 700°F, and the Kong’s exhaust is released through the calibrated cast aluminum damper at the top, which can be adjusted as needed.

Smart Construction For Better Results

Ever accidentally bump into a metal or steel grill? Ouch! One of the beautiful things about the Kong’s ceramic construction is that the ceramic surface stays cooler than standard grills. The high-temperature glossy black exterior finish is also designed to withstand the elements. While the Kong, like all kamado grills, is heavy, the heavy-duty swivel casters and wheels make it easy to move. Two locking brakes keep it steady when you decide on where you want your Kong. Additional helpful features include solid bamboo handles that stay cool to the touch along with two bamboo fold-down side trays for extra space. The included easy-read dome thermometer helps you maintain accurate cooking temperatures. When you buy a Kong you won’t need any additional accessories to get setup or start cooking, as the shock-absorber plunger and stainless steel stand are included.

The ceramic firebox on the Kong uses 100% organic lump charcoal and allows you to add your favorite flavored wood pellets so you can add extra flavor to every cook if you’d like.

    I have owned the Kong for 2 weeks now, and have used it 5 or 6 times. Most have been hot/fast cooks (wings, burgers, etc..), but also took a crack w/ ribs. Getting the grill to stabilize at 225 was challenging, but once I figured out where the vents should be, it leveled out at 226 and only waivered a degree or two over a few hours (used a Fireboard thermometer) which is pretty amazing. Flavor was incredible as the Kong imparts some new flavors that I don't get on my Silverback. I learned that minimizing opening the lid is crucial on this grill, as the temp will climb quite a bit even if opening for 10-20 seconds. Overall, VERY satisfied with the Kong and would recommend to anyone looking for a Kamado grill.

    Really glad you're enjoying it so far Matthew. Definitely takes a lot of practice to learn how to dial in those lower temperatures. Good luck getting to learn the grill, it's a lot of fun!

    Delivery, Unpacking and Assembly

    Delivered New Years Eve as scheduled. Delivery via a contracted shipper. Kong arrived on a wooden pallet encased in a very nice cardboard box (planning to reuse). Shipper will contact you for delivery. Kong is heavy ~260lbs., so ask shipper to drop at your garage as opposed to curb side. As implied, packaging is very good; internal materials were wrapped, boxed, or included in zip lock bags - somewhat impressive considering other products I received in 2020. Watch the assembly video on the website as a preview. It is slightly different and more logical instructions than the printed materials (e.g.: assemble cart prior to attaching wheels). Putting Kong on the cart is a two-person lift. Tray brackets took a couple of minutes to figure out which bracket went where because they were not stamped like video mentions - no issue though. Handle assembly was easy. Kong came with a screwdriver and two wrenches which would have worked, yet, I used my own tools when I discovered that the 10mm wrench wasn't sized properly (a little loose) and could have damaged the bolt caps when used. Total unpacking and assembly time = 41 minutes. Fahrenheit Technologies & Grilla Grills did an excellent job with the packaging. Now off to get charcoal. Let the grilling begin!

    Great product, great price, great customer support and the best BBQ I have ever made!!

    I received my Kong Kamado Ceramic Charcoal Grill as a Birthday present at 70 years of age. Wow, what a present it turned out to be. I only wished that I had this grill years ago! I have used it for Beer can chicken, pork steaks, and a Pork Rib Roast. Could not be more pleased. Once I figured out how much lump charcoal to use, with the diffuser, and a few hickory wood chips, I was making some of the best BBQ I have ever made. I'm still learning using brining, rubs , and can't wait till this spring when I plan on using it much of the time. Your company produces a quality product, has great support for any questions, and now I can retire my Weber Kettle, and metal upright smoker. What a wonderful 70th Birthday Present!!

    Wow, thanks for taking the time to leave us this review John. SO glad you're enjoying it. Hope you had a great birthday!

    Kong - Love it!!

    Owned about a month, have loved it!! Smoked chicken and meat balls, easy to use, maintains temperature well. All my cooking so far has been in the winter but it still maintains temp well. Highly recommend it!

    Grilla Grills

    Sounds like a great way to start using your Kong, start with some smaller cooks to get used to it! Thanks for sharing Mike.
