Kamado cookers have been about for thousands of years in one form or another (it is an ancient Japanese word). Certainly they have been used in China (archaeologists have unearthed 3000 year old examples) and Indians still use Tandoor ovens today.
Kamados are made from thick Ceramic so they are really quite heavy and solid. As soon as you lift the lid you can sense the quality. Cooking inside ceramic Kamado brings a whole new dynamic to outdoor cooking. The ceramic tends to naturally absorb moisture which is released during cooking and this is just one reason why when you cook on a Kamado you will taste beautiful tender meats which aren’t dried out or burnt
Kamado grills are generally fuelled by traditional lumpwood charcoal. One of the benefits of the ceramic construction is that there are no flavour contamination (metallic taste) to the cooked food and for the same reason, lumpwood charcoal is the preferred choice for modern kamado cooking. Not only does lump charcoal create little ash, it is also made from natural wood. We strongly recommend that you only use proper lumpwood charcoal (often described as ‘Restaurant grade’) If you use alternative fuels such as charcoal briquettes or self-lighting charcoal, these can contain many additives that can contaminate the flavour of the food.
If you are a serious outdoor cooker and put a priority on taste, then a ceramic grill is likely your best choice.
The most common comment you will get from your guests is how moist the meat is. The second most common comment is that you have cooked it so well (without burning it!)
These grills use a combination of ceramic, natural lump charcoal and air flow to offer a superior charcoal taste and the ability to cook food at high temperatures and have it retain its moistness . You can cook as low as 100°C (for as long as 8 hours without refuelling) or well over 400°C, so you can use it as an oven, a grill or a smoker and even a hot pizza oven. Your Wild Goose Kamado can be ready to use in as little as 15 minutes.
The key to the temperature control is two things: firstly the top and bottom precision vents control the airflow into the Kamado and this enables you to control both the temperature and the flames. Secondly, you always cook with the lid down and the lid has a tight seal which means that the only air intake is through your vents (so that you can perfectly control it)
When you first get your new Wild Goose Kamado, you will need to learn all about the new cooking techniques, but we do include a comprehensive guide to this to help you get started. The thick ceramic is very durable but, of course you should try to avoid banging it (for example slamming down the lid) as it can break under such force. The ceramic will craze in time and occasionally chip, but this doesn’t affect the structural integrity and your cooking enjoyment.
When your Kamado is delivered it will be on a kerbside pallet delivery service, It weighs about 80kg altogether so you may need to enlist a helper to lift the Ceramic into the cart initially. (once in though it is easy to move on the good quality wheels)

Q. Does the charcoal come with the Joe? If it doesn't, where do we get the right kind of lump wood charcoal?
A. It does not come with Lump wood. A good quality lump wood charcoal is needed. we have hope to have some in stock soon.
Q. Can you fit any of the Kamado Joe accessories such as the cast iron half moon grate to this model?
A. No it is not possible to use Kamado Joe flexible cooking rack accessories like the Half moon cast iron griddle on a wild goose.
The Wild goose has a differently designed rack and KJ accessories will not fit it.
Q. Can the wild goose kamado be left outdoors over the winter? Will the cold weather cause the ceramic to crack?
A. Yes, the BBQ can be left outside it might be an idea to get a cover just for weather like snow or rain.
The cold will not affect the ceramic.
I hope that helps.
