Introducing the Monolith Kamado Barbecue Video Tutorials

They say a picture speaks 1000 words, whether it be to convey emotions or detailed instructions there is no better medium, so today we present Monolith’s first series of instructional videos. 


Why the video tutorials

First and foremost we want to show those of you interested in buying a Monolith how easy it is to use a kamado. We also want everyone to enjoy using a Monolith Kamado and what better way to improve your skills!

The video instructions

Learning some thing new is both fast and enjoyable with video instruction and the Monolith kamado is no different. Seeing “how to do it” provides a more comprehensive understanding and it’s easier to remember.

It all started with my passion for barbecue and cooking with fire. But I wanted something that went beyond the conventional product reserved for grilling at weekends and then put back in a corner. I wanted to make a versatile barbecue that could be used in different ways, every day, that is also a stylish accessory to be displayed with pride. In order to make this I thought about the kamado, but a new and modern kamado. It was from this thought Monolith was born. I developed a product that combined the tradition of a Japanese kamado with German design, quality and durability. A product that features several cooking systems together with the most advanced technology applied to ceramic grills. A unique device that would make Monolith the kamado brand par excellence.

On this basis our Monolith Kamado Grill was born and subsequently developed over the years. Universal devices that allow you to grill, barbecue and smoke, to have a charcoal oven, a bread and pizza oven, a system that allows you to cook anything; the possibility of having a complete outdoor kitchen not only for the enthusiast but also for the catering professional who needs a system built to withstand intensive use. From this versatility and multi functionality comes the Monolith slogan: Monolith is freedom. A simple concept, but one that embodies the essence of using Monolith today. In Monolith, innovation and technology come together to give everyone the opportunity to use our grill in a simple way whilst still respecting the tradition of cooking with fire. And thanks to this Monolith Kamado Grills have become international cooking devices because they are able to adapt to every culinary culture and so create the traditional recipes of every country.
