Do you want to lower the temperature? Then make sure you close the daisy wheel (further). When lighting the best Kamado bbq, open the ventilation disk at the bottom and the daisy wheel at the top to the maximum. When the thermometer indicates the desired temperature (usually between 150 and 200 °C), you should reduce the ventilation.

After lighting, you can keep the coals “on low” or keep your dishes warm for a long time. To do this, close the daisy wheel completely and open the bottom draft door slightly. To keep food warm, the temperature of your Kamado bbq should be around 50°C.


When you work with higher temperatures on the best buy Kamado (from about 200°C) you should always let the lid “burp” carefully.

Best Kamado bbq | Low & slow

With the Kamados of the best brand Kamado, YAKINIKU, you can choose to grill low & slow. For this we would like to share some tips. View the full range of the best buy Kamado bbq here.

Low & slow

The most interesting pieces of beef or pork are usually also the toughest. A piece of pure fillet is very nice in structure, but has little flavour, because the muscle does not contain much fat and has been the least active. Entrecote or côte à l’os is much more interesting, because it contains much more fat. This gives flavour and protects the meat from drying out.

But for a real master griller, it becomes fun to prepare dishes with muscles that have been used intensively. These pieces are not edible raw or grilled for a short time, because they are much too tough. What do you do then? That is what you do. Very long cooking at low temperature in the best-tested Kamado. By remaining at low temperature for a long time, the tough fibrous structure and collagen in the meat slowly breaks down. The meat becomes super tender in this way. The advantage of cooking on the best Kamado bbq is that the added smoke will penetrate deep into the meat.

Best kamado bbq | smoking

The best Kamado grill from YAKINIKU is perfect for adding a smoke flavour to your preparations. View the full range of smoking wood and wood chips here.

Smoking | Wood chips

Add wood chips to your burning charcoal to add a smoke accent to your hot dishes on the best tested Kamado. You can use wood chips dry or wet:

Dry wood chips will ignite very quickly and give short, intense smoke. Use them to add a hint of flavour to your dishes on the best price-quality Kamado. Ideal for smoked oysters or thin pieces of meat with a short cooking time. There is no need to use a heat shield with dry wood chips. For short, intense cooking in the best Kamado bbq, you want to make full use of the radiant heat of the charcoal.

Wet wood chips ignite much slower and will therefore give off smoke for a longer time, but less intensely. Use wet wood chips for longer cooking at lower temperature, where you give a shot of smoke at regular intervals. Think of thick pieces of meat or a whole chicken or fish on the ceramic Kamado. With wet wood chips, a heat shield is necessary to protect your ingredient from the direct heat of the charcoal.

Mastertip YAKINIKU

Choose your smoking wood carefully, because each type of wood has its own taste, intensity and burning time.

Japanse tafelgrill Shichirin.

YAKINIKU® Shichirin
“Beefing up the people”, the motto of the Japanese. Bringing people together with food and simply grilling on a traditional Japanese grill. A beautiful summer evening with family and friends together. The table is filled with good food and then it’s time to grill. A delicious evening programme in which your guests can enjoy a konro grill. A Shichirin is a compact and versatile table grill that you can easily take with you or move around at any time. With this grill, we can enjoy and create cosiness on and around the dining table. 
The special thing about grilling with the Shichirin is the cosy sitting together around the fire. Comparable to gourmets, the delicious food is presented on the table in small portions. You will search in vain for the grill master who is in charge. When using a Japanese bbq grill, friends and family take place around the grill. Everyone prepares his or her own food as desired on the Japanese konro grill. 
The Shichirin table bbq is made of ceramic with quartz, cordierite and fired at high temperature. This makes this Shichirin a real powerhouse. The Japanese konro grill is easy to clean because of the glazed exterior. The appliance can only be used outdoors with briquettes, self-igniting briquettes or charcoal. The Japanese use binchotan charcoal, the black gold of Japan, which enables extremely high temperatures to be reached. A real Japanese table grill reaches a temperature of 900+ degrees.

Are you ready to grill real Japanese on the Shichirin bbq? YAKINIKU has both a round and rectangular Shichirin.

Japanese grill | History
The influence of Japan is an integral part of our post-war gastronomic history. And the YAKINIKU Shichirin is also inspired by Japan. But what is it with Japan? Time and again, Japan confirms its status as an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Japan is a high culture. For more than 2500 years an empire with a central government and a central organisation. Moreover, Japan closed itself off from the outside world for centuries. As a result, it has created a world all of its own. Japan is a country in stark contrast to us. People in today’s Japan find the focus and dedication to spend 20 years or more specialising in something. There is the opportunity to perfect, to become a shokunin. And that is what we at YAKINIKU usually admire so much about Japan. We know the Shichirin table barbecue from the history of Japan’s Edo period in 1603. Shichirin is a compound word that simply means ‘7 wheels’ or ‘7 rings’. It has to do with the fact that during the Edo period, the rin (from the end of the word Shichirin) was a currency. During this period, these konro grills became very popular and were used daily as kitchen appliances. At first, the use of this grill was reserved for the Samurai, people of nobility and the wealthier citizens. Later, this changed and the Japanese grill was used by all sections of society. The versatile Japanese charcoal grill was widely used on festive occasions such as outdoor folk festivals, even in the cold season. A classic Japanese autumn dish is Pacific Jackfish, for example. But the Japanese table grill is also used to this day at tea ceremonies, which are very popular in Japan.
In the past, most Japanese grills were made of river clay.

Nowadays, the composition is slightly more complex. A Shichirin bbq has to be more and more a powerhouse nowadays. For this reason, the konro grill is made of ceramic, quartz and cordierite. This composition is baked at a very high temperature. After this, it becomes a complete kitchen-in-one and virtually indestructible. The Japanese bbq grill has a glazed layer so it is easy to maintain. By adjusting the ventilation slides, you create the perfect air circulation. The Japanese charcoal grill is also perfect for use in the winter. The glazed ceramic also protects against rain and snow and is perfectly weatherproof. Please note that the konro grill is open at the top. So for use in times of rain and winter weather, it is wise to do this under a roof in the garden.

The tweezer can also be used as BBQ tongs for the Kamado. Curved tweezers are used according to Japanese tradition. You use them to remove cooked meat, fish or vegetables from the konro grill. These tweezers are very suitable for small ingredients on the Shichirin. The tweezer can also be used as BBQ tongs for the Kamado.
