Design: Ceramic built

The grill is enclosed in egg-shaped ceramic casings that help in grilling and smoking the food perfectly. However, being made of the ceramic body, the hood isn’t incredibly difficult to lift as it has a spring-assisted hinge that does most of the job for you.

Cast iron chimney

The chimney is built on top of the hood to let the steam off and control the temperature within. It can be set at a particular position as you need, and the cooking process will continue unhindered.

The Gasket
