At 24″, the Kong is a large charcoal ceramic kamado grill, truly one of a kind. 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.

Benefits Overview

  • Can maintain consistently low, or consistently high temperature
  • Tremendous flexibility, allows you to smoke, bake, sear, or grill
  • Convection heat allows for consistent cooking
  • Easy to move with swiveling casters
  • Over 600” square inches of cooking space
  • Heavy duty ceramic construction

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:

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.

  • Calibrated cast aluminum damper at the top along with the stainless steel adjustable slide plate at the base control airflow and provide precise temperature control
  • Exhaust is released through the calibrated cast aluminum damper at the top
  • Temperature range up to 700°F

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Kong Kamado Grill

  • How hard is it to assemble the Kong? You don’t need a giant manual or to be a mechanical engineer to assemble a Kong Kamado Smoker Grill. It’s only a matter of attaching some wheels and side tables. We have a video that walks you through how to assemble the Kong.
  • How do I season my Kong? The charcoal will heat up and should be allowed to remain red hot for at least 30 minutes before you use your Kong for the first time. Leave the coals in position once they are lit, don’t try to turn or stoke them; this will ensure a more uniform and efficient burn.
  • How do I remove the ash that’s in the bottom of the Kong? Open the grill’s bottom vent and use the ash tool to rake out the remaining ashes. If you’re using natural lump charcoal, you’ll need to do this after about 8 to 10 uses (a big buildup of ash will reduce airflow and impact the grill’s heating properties).
  • How do I start the Kong? Can I use lighter fluid? First, place a newspaper roll and either solid relighters or lighter cubes on the Kong’s charcoal plate. Next, put two to three handfuls of lump charcoal over the top of the newspaper. Open the bottom vent and use either a long-nosed lighter or safety matches to light the newspaper. Once the newspaper catches, build a small bed of hot embers by keeping the bottom vent and lid open for at least 10 minutes. IMPORTANT: Never use gasoline, lighter fluid, alcohol, or other flammable substance to light or relight your grill. Never overload the unit with fuel as intense heat may damage your grill.
  • How do I manage the temperature of the Kong? If you are cooking slowly and at low temperatures, close both vents before the thermometer reaches 220°F. For medium roasting, let the grill reach about 300°F then shut down the vents to halfway. For high heats, wait until the temperature reaches 500 to 550°F and then close the vents halfway
  • What’s the best way to cool down my Kong after a cook? Close both the bottom slide door and the top vent completely, and leave them like this until the desired cooking temperature is reached. Then, readjust the slide door and the top vent to regulate the temperature.

    The Kamado I didn't know I needed in my life

    What a great experience I had with my purchase. Picked up at the Holland, MI location. Staff was over the top helpful. The kamado is fantastic. Set-up was easy and all the bits and pieces are of great quality.

    Year One and Grilling Strong

    Now one year into the Kong experience - wow! For the first couple of months, I experimented with charcoal, closely watched the temp, and tinkered with the air controls to hit and maintain 250 degrees. Now, it is nearly an automatic setting. Everything, and I do mean everything, is better on the Kong than my other grills. Pizza, shrimp, pork, steaks, brisket, lamb and chicken are household favorites. Nothing like firing the Kong up to 600 degrees to sear a huge porterhouse. Kong looks brand new. Acquired several Grilla Grill accessories because of the Kong quality. Did have to replace the handle; Grilla's customer service had a box at my front door in four days - at no charge - again service excellence. My brother-in-law kicks himself because of the cost of the green thing - yes, he paid lots more for that green paint. Thanks, Grilla - looking forward to winter cooking.

    LOVE IT!!

    Ordered the Kong during the Black Friday deals. Shipping was quick and installation was a breeze. In just over two weeks we've done pizza twice, an 8# brisket, two chickens and pork shoulder. More in-store over the Christmas break.

    That's a great start David! Keep putting that grill to work, you're gonna have a lot of new favorites to try!
