BBQ Guide: The Ceramic BBQ

The mother of all BBQs, this cooker is made of thick ceramic walls that concentrate and hold heat. Excellent for both barbecuing and smoking.
The Ceramic BBQ

The Ceramic BBQ

Nothing is more impressive in a backyard than a big ceramic BBQ. It’s the kind of BBQ that shows you know the best that BBQ and barbecuing has to offer and that you have mad BBQ skills. For high-heat barbecuing, the thick ceramic walls help focus the heat so you can get a restaurant-quality sear on steak and chops. Those thick walls also retain heat for hours, so you can smoke briskets and pork shoulders with little effort in terms of temperature control. For the very best in barbecuing and smoking, nothing beats a ceramic BBQ.

Important note

Many ceramic BBQ manufacturers recommend against using ordinary briquets. However, Kingsford makes two varieties of briquets that are ideal for ceramic cookers. Kingsford Professional Briquets, and Kingsford 100% Natural Lump Charcoal.
