Grill Ideas from IBD Outdoor Rooms

At IBD Outdoor Rooms, we specialize in creating outdoor kitchens, and we take pride in designing unique spaces with features you will not find in the average outdoor kitchen. One of these features is our Kamado Kaddy or Kradle counters. Over the past few years, grills like the Kamado Joe and other brands have become more and more popular, but these appliances can be difficult to fit into the typical outdoor kitchen. This is why we started offering the Kamado Kaddy or Kradle counters, and we have had wonderful feedback from our customers about this option. We would like to tell you more about this feature and the grills that fit into these counters.

What kinds of Kamado Kaddy or Kradle options do you offer?

IBD Outdoor Rooms has designed four different styles of these Kaddy counters, which are all ready to finish with brick, stone, tile or stucco. You can also have your counter factory finished with our unique and low-maintenance Granitech finish with a base of pure granite granules. The San Juan model is the simplest counter and will fit large kamado-style grills of any brand. The Montego model and the Largo model also fit large kamados and offer generous counter space as well as a choice of doors, drawers, cooler pullouts, or storage bins. Our personal favorite model, the Kahuna, is an island that allows you to showcase your cooking skills. With a rounded raised dining ledge, you have space for four barstools for friends and family to sit around the kamado-style grill and watch you cook. This model also comes with an umbrella holder if you need extra shade.

What exactly is a kamado-style grill?

A thick-walled ceramic cooker, a kamado-style grill is similar to the ancient grills used in Asia. These grills give meats, fish, and vegetables a smoky and rich flavor from charcoal as air flows through the body of the cooker. You can use this type of cooker to grill, roast, smoke, and even bake. One of the most popular brands of kamado-style grills is The Kamado Joe. Available in four different sizes, the Kamado Joe is safe to use as its ceramic surface never gets as hot as a regular grill. You can adjust the air flow systems to get the exact temperature you need. One of our favorite features of the Kamado Joe is its patented Divide & Conquer Flexible Cooking System, which is a multi-level half rack design that allows you to cook different foods at different temperatures at the same time.
