What is Kamado?
KAMADO is a Japanese word for “stove”, and KAMADO means “a place for a boiling pot”. 竈 is the kanji character for KAMADO. In the romaji writing system, which is based on the Latin script, the word KAMADO is written the same as in English – KAMADO. So now, the word KAMADO is referred to all similar types of ceramic barbecue grills.
Historians state that people were already using wooden vessels for cooking in ancient times. That’s why archaeologists discover remnants of this ancient dishware in every corner of the world. For example, some of the oldest clay pots, more than 3000 years old, were found in China. These round clay pots are believed to be ancestors of the modern KAMADO barbecue grill.
Throughout history, people have developed these simple clay pots and used them to cook various dishes in many different ways. Indians began to use clay ovens called a tandoor, while the Japanese called them mushikamado, a stove to steam rice in Japanese families during special ceremonies. Mushikamado is a round clay pot with a domed lid, and it was most common in Southern Japan. In ancient times Japanese developed it even further to regulate the evaporating temperature by perfecting the design of air dampers, and they began to use charcoal instead of wood. Mushikamado came to the attention of Americans after World War II.
