Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet introduces the Shokunin (show-koo-neen) Kamado Grill. The company will launch its new kamado – meaning stove – style grill called the Shokunin later this summer. This is the first completely new grill design from Kalamazoo since it introduced its award-winning Gaucho Grill in 2014.

Kamado-style grills date back 3,000 years, but it wasn’t until after World War II that this style of grill was introduced to the United States. The design of the Shokunin is like no other kamado grill on the market. It features an 18-by-24-in. rectangular grilling area that expands the size of the cooking surface and makes cooking with an offset fire much easier. Its rectangular shape and stainless-steel exterior also creates a seamless design with other outdoor cooking appliances. The grill is accented with an ipe wood frame and handles, giving it a furniture-like quality. Accessory shelves and trays clip onto the frame for convenience.
