Workers in the restaurant industry, from chefs to servers, all advise against going out to a restaurant on Mother’s Day. To anticipate the high number of patrons, restaurants often have rigid fixed price menus that leave little room for personalization. Furthermore, reservations often must be made weeks or months in advance, and without them wait times can easily waste away several hours of the night. To prevent any souring of your Mother’s Day, it’s better to treat your Mom at home.

Duluth Forge Ceramic Charcoal Kamado Grill and Smoker - Extra Large Model
Introducing the new Extra Large 24 Inch Duluth Forge Charcoal Kamado Ceramic Egg . Whether you are grilling, searing, or smoking meats or fish, the Duluth Forge Kamado Built-In Charcoal Grill is an ideal product for all your outdoor cooking needs.
Created with high-quality ceramic and commercial-grade stainless steel bands, hinges, springs, and hardware make it more resistant to rust. The one inch thick ceramic walls along with large fire bowl allow for better heat retention and even heat circulation. A kamado is a traditional ceramic Japanese wood or charcoal fueled cooking stove.
The ceramic construction for kamado's means there is no flavor contamination or metallic taste given to the food. Kamado's use lump wood charcoal which creates very little ash which can taint food and is manufactured in an environmentally sustainable manner. Regular charcoal briquettes contain many chemicals that contaminate the flavor of the food.
The round shape gives the best heat distribution, unlike rectangular grills which can create hot and cold spots. The heat retention properties of the ceramic shell can reach up to 1200 degrees F!
The Duluth Forge Ceramic Charcoal Kamado Grill and Smoker are made from the same materials used to make kilns and pizza ovens which are extremely good insulators that radiate heat effectively. The sides and domes absorb heat and radiate it back like a brick oven, so food cooks evenly from above.
