Our newest grill models, the Kamado Kookers and Akorn, have been some of our most popular grills since their initial release in 2011. Since then, we’ve gotten countless requests for accessories to go with the Kamado. We have come out with several different products that work wonderfully in conjunction with this type of grill, but the most sought-after accessory by far is the Smokin’ Stone. This accessory is ideal for someone who wants to use their Kamado grill to smoke their food, or cook it indirectly. But once you have the stone, there are a few different ways you can use it.
1. First, you can place the Smokin’ Stone in the firebowl of the Kamado, underneath the cast iron cooking grate, without anything on top of it. To smoke a roast or ribs, place the cooking grate over the Smokin, Stone, then place your drip pan on top of the grate, with your U-rack or chicken rack on top of that.
2. Place the Smokin’ Stone in the firebowl of the Kamado, underneath the cast iron grate, but this time, put your drip pan on top of the stone. Above that, your meat, with or without a rack, will sit on top of your cooking grate.
3. Place the Smokin’ Stone in the firebowl of the Kamado, but do not place the cooking grate over it. Rest the drip pan and either U-rack or poultry rack on top of the stone. This configuration is useful for a large turkey.
4. To make a pizza in your Kamado, you can rest the pizza either directly on the Smokin’ Stone without using the cooking grate, or you can place the pizza on the cooking grate, depending on the recipe you use.
The Smokin’ Stone is probably the most versatile Kamado accessory that we offer, and it is well worth picking one up. It is available to order on our website or over the phone by calling (912) 638-4724. Our customer service hours are M-F 8:30-5 EST.
