Without the ability to control heat, grills can be unpredictable and cooks can vary each time. A kamado overcomes these challenges with the thick ceramic walls that hold heat much better than its metal counterparts. Also, food is cooked from every direction as the shape of the grill is round. The ceramics can also do a great job of holding flavor in and developing it further. Proper seals between the lid and base of the kamado and the top damper are imperative to create a more dependable cooking environment. The Grill Dome is designed to provide the ultimate control. Two dampers on the bottom base and the top neck control the airflow in the cooker. The draft is created when the top damper (1) and the bottom damper (2) are both open. Air comes in from the bottom damper (2) to fuel fire and top damper (1) allows for an exhaust. To reduce the heat, simply choke the fire by close the bottom damper (2), or to ignite more charcoal open up the bottom damper to desired level. When both vents are completely open a draft is created in the kamado and this air can be used to start the fire very quickly and also achieve high temperatures. Simply cut the dampers down to hold lower temperatures and this allows control for lower temperatures for baking or smoking.
