Setting & Controlling Your Kamado Grill Temperature

Icon Grills Kamado cooking temperatures are controlled by adjusting the calibrated top and bottom vents.

Increasing air flow through top and bottom air vents increases cooking temperature, while decreasing air flow lowers the cooking temperature. Closing both top and bottom vents starves the charcoal of oxygen and stifles down the fire.

Important Kamado Information

  • Caution – If you’re going to smoke, do not let the grill get too hot. Keep the temperature low, it takes hours to cool down.
  • Caution ­– Continuous grilling at extreme high temperatures may cause the felt to burn.
  • Prevent Flare-Up- If the lid is lifted too quickly, oxygen will rush inside the grill, causing a flare-up. To prevent a flare-up, lift the lid 1 inch/2.5 centimeter and count to five before slowly opening the lid wide open.

*Temperature Settings are approximate. Many varying factors may give you different results with controls, such as lump charcoal quality, altitude, wind, outside temperature, dew point, barometric pressure, humidity, etc.
