Introducing BBQube Kamado-Go Auto-Temp Portable Charcoal Grill

Recommended Posts

 Just spent two days with the manufacture testing out the new Kamado-Go grill and it worked like a champ. Maintaining 250 degrees within 2-3 degrees of deviation for more than 7 hours before we had to wrap up the test. Insulated top lid with latch, stainless 304, folding side tables and legs, total weight 30lb (side table also dubs as handles for easy carry), and best of all, comes with our new gen of controller - TempMaster Portable. Cooking area is 305 sq inch which is comparable to the Akorn's 315 and ours is square! Other feaurtes include ash tray drawer, heat-defector and charcoal divider. There will be more unique accessories developed for it so stay tuned!

Good looking portable grill, like the options that you include with the grill! :good:  I say options your's are included but most small grills are limited to what you can buy.

Doesn't look like a kamado to me.

 

That is a grill, isn't it?

ha, it is a grill and it doesn't look like an egg. and I call it "Kamado-Go", that is kamado grill w/ legs! Kamado for it's insulated lid and the ability to maintain low and slow, "Go" for its portability.

kamado means cooking stove in Japanese, if you go to a Japanese museum, that thing looks like a stew pot sitting on a regular concrete wood stove. and what we call Kamado nowadays is actually called "mushikamado", and was used to steam rice.

Let's just say the name is a little deceptive in today's world. Don't get me wrong, I like it, just the name doesn't really fit - IMO anyway. 

 

 

let's hope for the future :roll:

man you know in today's world you'd have to include every keywords in the title so the amazon customers can pull up your name in search results...and if they look for a low and slow cooker then i hope they find mine. but they ain't gonna type low and slow cooker...

Is the included controller also usable on the Akorn and/or other grills? What are the folded dimensions?

I'm interested in something portable, and have also been looking at a temp controller for my Akorn and Akorn Jr. Currently use the Jr on vacations, but this might be a good option too. One feature I'm looking for is 'clean' travel. The Jr buttons up pretty tight with no grease or ash messing up the van.

A related question would be - does that side port accept a pit viper fan and will there be a no controller option? (for people like me that already own a controller). I do realize there is no adjustable bottom vent so it does need some type of controller. 

 

Using this as an all around vacation grill it would need to be able to run at full searing temps in the 500*-600* range. With that in mind can the temperature probes and their cables stand that high of a temperature? 

 

Just exploring all options.

yes it'll work with any type of enclosed grills even all weber grills. it got the same fan and control like our pro line. 

The bottom ashtray drawer is lockable so no grease will leak. I camp a lot and loved my weber go-anywhere but wished it were bigger. now i got a bigger one :) i'll post more pics once i take it camping. the controller will come with a hardshell case that can hold a 12v battery and can go off-grid for 30+ hrs.

the side port is a standard 1" tubing so it should work with any fan w/ that size. but the PID controllers are not very good at control small grills.

there are adjustable bottom vent on both sides, kinda hard to see under the side tables. the probes can stand much higher temperatures, and they're responsive like steak probes. If i tell you i first spent a year making these probes and 7 prototypes of the wire wrap you'd think i'm nuts haha. but that's how i started, i wasn't happy w/ the iGrill probes and soldered one steak probe needle with the iGrill plug...now it's all history!

and to OC, here are the dimensions. 

side table unfolded 37"L x 14.4" W x 16" H

grill body 22" 

grate size 21" x 13", cooking area is 273 sq inch, a little smaller than i previously posted.

      Woke up this morning reading my news feed and saw an article titled "7 Best Upgrades for Your Weber Kettle". As a big weber fan I clicked on it and after the tried-and-true lid hinge, the pizza ring then boom! I saw my little gold/black stomp box on there. So stoked...4 years ago we started with a few bare PCB boards and a solder iron, now we're in smoking business!
      If it can control a tin metal grill's temperature rocksteady then you know how precise and stable it would be on a kamado

      Hi all, we made a little video about cooking frozen pizza from stores. It was a fun lunch at work. When I first made the pizza ring 2 years ago there weren't many frozen pizzas in the stores, most are thick crust. but now...wow, they got their own aisle. So we dust off the pizza ring and made pizza lunch at work. 
      We tested more than 8 different brands of pizzas, and Newman's thin crust cooked best in the Akorn Kamado, California kitchen's Sicily pizza had a perfect dough/topping ratio, and even the cauliflower dough tasted good from the stone. The stone was kept around 450 - 500, anything higher may burn the dough without full cook the toppings. So on thicker dough keep the stone under 400 will be a good idea.
      Talking bout the stone, we used Rockheat we bought from Amazon, I'd recommend it. simple but smart handle design. We're working on a pizza stone with a digital thermometer built in, then you won't need the Infrared gun to read the stone temperature. I can probably program our controller to keep the stone temperature consistent.

      The current temp probe for grill has not been changed for a long time. I didn't like the space it's taking and the position you have to put it at is often not a good spot to measure grill temp. If it's hot air cooking meat, then the probe should be collecting air temp at the meat surface, right? So this is what I came up with. It can be clipped onto a needle meat probe or the grill by itself. It's so small so you can clip it anywhere. It's compatible with iGrill and many other brands. I've been using it with Akorn Jr. for the last 2 months and absolutely loving it. (I know, I made it lol). It's very useful for smaller grills as cooking area is tight. Anyway, check it out.

      Hello everyone!
      Found this forum by googling Akorn grill and joined right away. I got into kamado cooking after buying an Akorn grill from Homedepot about a yr and half ago. I thought the grill was the key but failed miserably on the first cook out. I then went on google (of course) how to use the kamado properly and found Amazingribs.com. My life has been changed ever since! I succeeded on the first try of every recipe he had, from 6 hr ribs to 20 hr brisket. I'm now totally addicted to BBQ/Smoking and have made my own accessories to help me cooking. I now own about 10 grills, from weber smokey joe to a 25" ceramic kamado. what I use most often is Akorn Jr, it's super efficient and very portable (as a kamado). 
      Happy cooking!

      Saw this along the road today and I'm dreaming.  I don't have a bike, but I DO have a traveling kamado!!  Wouldn't that be great?
