A leader in producing finely constructed outdoor cooking equipment, Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet is once again raising the bar with their latest creation. Taking a page from the design of the ancient Kamado dating back 3,000 years, which is a Japanese cooking device that produces an intense level of heat insulation compared to standard grills, Kalamazoo has built the Shokunin.
The Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet Shokunin Grill is made from 304-grade stainless steel and has two inches of insulation, separating the interior and exterior of the cooking tool. According to Kalamazoo Gourmet, the insulation is so efficient that the exterior of the grill keeps cool even if the interior temperature reaches 1,200° F. Thanks to its rectangular design, which is uncommon for typically dome-shaped Kamado grills, the 200-pound cooking vessel provides more space for you to grill a steak feast. As with every Kalamazoo grill, the Shokunin is welded and assembled by hand in Michigan. There’s no price announced yet, but you can expect the grill to be available this summer.
