A counter-balance hinge was created with stainless springs and hinge components. This made the lid easily liftable.
Our moulds went through various iterations – with some not-so-funny-moments.
Insulation and where to put it.
Types of refractory were numerous and where do we get them.
The wood-finish has been formulated in-house and now works.
A catch for the lid – after what seemed to be a never-ending quest – has been found.
Top-vents – don’t get me started on top-vents. The design had to have certain things. Rain-proof, removable for the table, left-and-right control, adjustable with bear-hands, leak-proof(smoke), leak-proof liquid – no ugly streaks on the beautiful oak top. non-corrosive. Build-able by us. Can’t afford to buy 1000s of these things.
Seals: we tested various materials – what I don’t know about ‘Shore hardness’ which I never knew existed.
Rotisserie: had to have one of these.
Flexible cooking options – well have to have these too.
Now we have a beautiful kamado fit to grace any residence.
Something unique and beautiful.
