Everything you need to start grilling comes with the Kamado Joe at Coastal. Plus, we carry lump charcoal that can add different types of flavor to your meals. The Kamado Joe Classic boasts a heat range of 225º to 750º F thanks to a thick-walled, heat resistant shell that locks in heat, moisture, and smoke.
Looking for a grill that smokes and sears? The Kamado Joe Classic can smoke at 225º for hours. Or crank up the heat to 750º for a perfect sear. Plus, the Kamado Joe comes with a 2-tier Divide & Conquer grill system that gives you even more cooking space beyond the 18-inch, round cooking surface.
Cooking a Margarita Pizza
For our classic margarita pizzas on the Kamado Joe Classic, we’ll need about an hour and a short list of ingredients.
1 envelope active dry yeast
2.5 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon salt
Fresh basil leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
Create your dough by mixing the yeast and sugar into warm water and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then mix in the flour, salt, and oil until all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly. After 5 minutes or so, you can add some flour to a cutting board and roll out the pizza dough.
Set your Kamado Joe to 650º F and place your pizza stone so it’s even with the opening of the grill. Then, place the pizza dough on a pizza peel. Be sure to add some cornmeal to the peel first so the dough slides off.
Add your sauce, mozzarella, and a dash of salt and pepper to taste.
Place the pizza into the Kamado Joe and cook for 18 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the toppings cooked. If you want to add basil leaves, put them on a few minutes before the pizza is done.
Remove and let it cool.
