For many people, chicken that is carefully grilled or roasted in the oven is a delicacy that is hard to resist at the dinner table. Baking, grilling, or smoking is an art and you should master it like any other art out there.
One of the grills that can be used for various purposes for all three cooking styles is the kamado-style grill. If someone is tired of ordering pizza or grilled chicken, then how effective are they at using a ceramic grill to make sure it's served as long as possible?
First, ceramic grills and ceramic smokers receive manufacturer instructions on how to assemble various parts. It is very important to always read the manual and understand how these parts are assembled and how they work. If you make a mistake at this point, it could cause your device to malfunction.
Make sure to wash your new kamado grill in oil after assembly. Before preparing your first meal, apply the first layer of oil, preferably olive, vegetable, or peanut oil, to door handles and bumper blades to prevent corrosion of these parts and to ensure smooth operation. Start by running your ceramic grill at a lower temperature before it finally reaches a high temperature above 500 degrees. This means you can't use a new kamado pizza grill as it requires a high temperature above 500 degrees.
During the first twenty-four hours after using your new grill, work on the lower temperature limit, between 150 and 250 degrees. Refer to the manufacturer's manual for instructions on temperature regulation. This temperature range must be maintained continuously during the first cooking process. The next cooking session, perhaps five or more, should be held at a temperature of no more than 375 degrees. Typically, on a new ceramic oven or grill, you will see steam or moisture visible from the outside. To eliminate this problem, it is recommended to extend the session at low temperatures.
When you finally move to a higher temperature; said, when using a kamado as a ceramic pizza oven, be careful and avoid the "flashback" phenomenon. This condition is usually due to a lack of air to burn and can be very dangerous. Prevent this from happening by opening the current before the lid slowly opens. As a precaution, do this whenever you are on the kamado side.
