19" Hi-Cap Table Top
The the Hi-Cap 19″ Table Top is the newest addition to the Komodo Kamado family . While 20% smaller than it's larger sibling the 23″ Ultimate, this table top makes up for it's smaller territory by adding huge capacity in the lid.This high capacity lid lets you throw a brisket on the main grill and then load up the upper grill with multiple pork butts/shoulders. The chimney in the rear gives you a uniform ceiling for browning and baking like an Italian wood oven, The hi-cap lid was inspired by the 32″ Big Bad KK which was designed to hold huge volumes of food for entertaining large groups or commerce. We will re-introduce the standing 19 with this new lid soon..

Some models use wifi to send both your grill and meat's temps to your smart phone. The two most popular ones are the BBQ Guru (theBbqGuru.com)and the Stoker (RocksBarbque.com) There is a special faceplate with a Guru inducer tube built into the body with a machined spring loaded plug that lets you easily install and remove the controller's fan. the controller's polder cables go thru a special tube in the body.
The Handle and Latch Mechanism
The grill has an interlocking lip with a collapsable silicone gasket. This latch has a roller bearing and a two position catch. When you close the grill it catches on the first position. Firmly press the paddle towards the grill and the bearing rolls up and over the cam pulling the grill snugly closed and making an absolutely airtight seal. Click on images to enlarge.
