Kamado Joe is giving home chefs who enjoy outdoor grilling a new cooking vessel with the debut of its pellet-fueled ceramic grill.
The Pellet Joe’s patented design is thermostatically controlled to maintain the desired temperature up to 600° Fahrenheit, higher than traditional pellet grills. Users can select from the three cooking zones: smoke (225° to 300° Fahrenheit), BBQ-roast (300° to 450° degrees Fahrenheit), or sear (450° to 600° degrees Fahrenheit). Temperature can be easily adjusted on the grill’s control knob or with the Kamado Joe app.
Grill users will use fewer pellets but maintain longer cooking times as a result of the ceramic chamber. Loading pellets into the grill is easy with the provided pellet scoop. The Pellet Joe’s stainless-steel hopper holds 10 pounds of pellets for up to 14 hours of burn time at smoking temperatures.
Engineered to solve for a common pellet grill frustration, the Pellet Joe was created with pellet agitators within the integrated hopper to significantly reduce pellet bridging and jams.
“Kamado Joe has been pushing the boundaries in the ceramic grill category for more than a decade, setting a new standard, and changing the way people think about kamado cooking,” said Cara Finger, Chief Marketing Officer at Kamado Joe. “While we remain committed to charcoal, we are proud to take another innovative step forward today moving into a new fuel category. No matter the skill level, users can achieve the unrivaled flavor, heat retention, and temperature flexibility of kamado cooking, while controlling it all with the push of a button.”
The Pellet Joe comes standard with an 18-inch cooking surface, aluminum side shelves, Air Lift Hinge, stainless steel latch, fiberglass gasket, smoke tower, drip bucket, two meat probes and one pit probe. The grill also accommodates most Kamado Joe Classic accessories.
The Pellet Joe was designed in partnership with Atlas Product Manufacturing Group and app was made possible by Desora, Inc. The Pellet Joe is available now for $1,999.99 at select independent retailers and will be available online at KamadoJoe.com in early 2021.
