KUDU Open Fire Cooking System + Fire Pit
The KUDU is THE most innovative portable, open-fire cooking and backyard campfire system on the market. With KUDU you can grill, bake, sear, sauté’, steam and fry, and when you’re finished cooking it easily converts to an elevated vertical fire pit. Our patented technology allows optimum versatility and engagement for the backyard entertainment enthusiast.
KUDU assembles in seconds out of the box; suitable for the first-timer, the seasoned griller and everyone in between. The ease of use for its robust and simple components along with KUDU’s versatility combine to create a unique entertainment platform for every occasion. And when you’re headed into the wild, KUDU is willing and able to join your safari and provide its one-of-a-kind experience wherever you choose to roam.
The KUDU’s base is made from a very sturdy, heavy gauge metal, while the grilling surface is made from a slightly lighter gauge; this helps you focus on the proper grilling technique of getting as much energy as possible from the fire up onto the food.
One of the most unconventional aspects about the KUDU is the elevated grate system, anchored by two metal bars on each side of the grill. That system is excellent at teaching the proper way to control heat when you’re cooking over a live fire.
“One thing that I find magical about the KUDU is that they’re really beautifully designed to ensure that even if you’re a novice, the baseline premise of grilling is all there,” says chef Kevin Gillespie.
The KUDU is intentionally simplistic in its form. People sometimes think that just because a grill looks robust and has a lot of moving parts, it must be capable of complex performance, but often that’s not the case. When it comes to the KUDU, simplicity of design gives way to a larger breadth of opportunity – we’ve removed all the superfluous parts, built a solid, sturdy, straightforward product, and we’re left with a unique and innovative grill that harnesses and refines all the best aspects of cooking over an open flame.
When you discuss the efficiency of one grill vs. another, you take away the humanistic quality of what’s happening – we’re doing something that links us to our inherent biology as humans. Which method of cooking brings you the most immediate connection to the food you’re cooking? The KUDU, hands down, because we know that efficiency should never trump quality – especially not when it comes to food and the opportunity to bring the ones we care for closer to us.
Due to KUDU’s unique modular system, we have created a multitude of accessories to expand its cooking potential. We offer Dutch ovens, rotisseries, bread makers, oyster roasters, chicken roasters, Himalayan salt blocks, cast iron skillets, steel skillets, woks, and more. We aim to provide you with the products you need to enjoy the KUDU the way you want to enjoy it.
