Why cast iron over ceramic?
Why is our cast iron kamado superior to ceramic? Read on.
Cooking with cast iron offers advantages over alternative ceramic kamados, such as increased durability and less moving parts. Additionally, cast iron’s radiant and thermal properties provide even heating and precise temperature control.

You may have noticed that ceramic kamados are “sold out” these days. Most import their ceramic from China and or Mexico, and that has proven difficult as foreign supply chains have been disrupted recently.
So why wait for “out of stock” ceramic kamados because fragile, foreign made ceramic parts are hard to come by these days? Shop our quality, genuine, American made Goldens’ Cast Iron kamados. They’re always in stock, because they’re built in America with materials made in America. Cookers come fully assembled and delivered right to your backyard, ready to grill! Plus they last for generations. Buy Goldens’ Cast Iron. Pouring iron since 1882.

Cast iron provides the highest levels of crack and shock resistance.
Superior Cooking Material:
Cast iron’s radiant and thermal properties provide even heating and precise temperature control. Everyone knows nothing tastes as good as food cooked in grandma’s cast iron skillet.
All-Weather High-Temperature Powder Coat Finish:
Weather resistant thermoset powder coat finish. Prevents rusting and weathering effects.
Precision hinge mechanism ensures top and bottom alignment. Precision cast integrated hinge offers bandless design, closing on a single axle for a perfect seal every time. Other cookers require band and hinge maintenance over time to correct lid misalignment.
Iron Top Vent Offers accurate temperature control – low and slow or sear.
Stainless Steel Intake:
Allows accurate temperature control. Makes ash removal and clean up easy.
Stainless steel full temp range thermometer ±1% accuracy.
The more pieces you have, the more problems you have. Our firebox is one piece, solid iron. Strong. Stable. Durable.
Trex® Composite Shelving:
Weather-resistant shelves are perfect for food prep. Eco-friendly blend of 95% recycled wood and plastic film. Stain resistant and durable.
Cast Iron Grates:
Variable height grates heat up quicker and retain heat better.
Two Tiered Cooking:
Reversible cast iron half grates give you the ability to choose both the distance to the fire as well as the width of the cooking surface. In the lower position, the grates provide a wide cooking surface for beautiful grill marks with each sear. The upper position is ideal for smoking and grilling. The purchase of two additional grates adds a tiered-cooking option to your Cooker – perfect for smoking multiple racks of ribs at a time!
Used as a flat grilling and searing surface or as a heat deflector for smoking.
Cast Iron Divider Plate:
Offers a variety of cooking configurations by separating your fuel on one side or the other to allow the control of heat to sections of food being grilled.
Heavy Duty Cart:
Very strong and durable steel stand, wielded for strength and portability.
Cast Iron Wheels:
Sturdy cast iron construction provides support and easy maneuvering.

Just got my Goldens’ Cast Iron Cooker about 10 days ago and it is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. Seriously. I have no doubt this is the last grill/smoker/cooker I’ll ever have to buy and my son already knows he’s getting it! I’ve already made whole chickens, butts and reverse seared Filet. I’ve been smoking for the last 6 years on a number of different setups and this cooker made the best of everything I’ve ever done. The filet was award winning, bringing it up low and slow, then searing it on the searing plate with bacon grease and drizzling some garlic cloves & rosemary sprig butter on it. Unbelievable.

The kitchen has been a dream plan for my porch for years. It all started when I first saw the Goldens’ Cast Iron cooker. I knew it would become the centerpiece for my kitchen. I finally bought one last year in Columbia, SC from Southern Vistas Landscape and Garden Center. I called you guys and ordered it without a cart for obvious reasons. I designed/drew up the plans, and bought the hardware and hired a contractor to build it. Anyway, I absolutely love this cooker. It keeps steady temps so easily!

I’ve had my Goldens’ Cast Iron cooker for almost 4 years now and it is Great! It is capable of cooking at nearly any temperature at which food is cooked while also being able to consistently hold a constant temperature. It’s efficient with your charcoal for those long cooks. Because it is heavy and well sealed it is much less likely to dry out your food. The durability can’t be beat. Unless you use your cooker for heavy target practice you will still have a strong and capable device providing delicious food for generations to come. You can certainly spend more to cook outdoors but you will not get more in terms of capability, durability, and flavor than the Goldens Cast Iron Cooker. I’m not being compensated to say these things, I just really like this All-American, Made in Georgia grill that has helped me provide delicious food for family and friends. I have even been able to successfully cook items that I would never try with other grills. Don’t merely take my word for it. When you are ready for some goodness find your local dealer and prepare to elevate your grilling to levels that you never thought possible. Join me and countless others in this new Iron Age made possible by the good folks of Goldens’ Cast Iron!
