Wood Chip Feeder System
The unique system of supplying wood chips, chunks, or pellets allows you to insert smoke chips directly over hot charcoal—without having to raise the lid. Using a specially designed aperture, flavored wood chips are placed onto the wood chip feeder tray. Push the wood chip feeder into the grill and pull out the handle to release wood chips directly into the fire area. Because you don’t have to lift the lid, you maintain more consistent low-and-slow cooking temperatures which are important for making great barbecue.
Dual-Disc Ventilation Cap
The dual disc ventilation cap allows for easy temperature and airflow control. By adjusting the ventilation cap, you can regulate the required temperatures. Opening the ventilation cap will increase airflow and oxygen intake, making the charcoal hotter and the temperature increase. By closing the ventilation cap, you reverse the process.
The cordierite ceramic pizza stone is perfect for grilling or baking authentic Italian crispy pizza, quiches, breads, and desserts. The open-pored surface heats efficiently and absorbs the moisture from the dough to ensure a crispy base. For best results, use in combination with the deflector stone to prevent the base of the pizza stone from getting too hot.
The robustly designed cart is made of high grade materials and easily supports the weight of the Monolith BBQ Guru Edition, giving you the freedom to move your ceramic grill around smoothly. The sturdy cart features locking castors for added safety, stability, and easy transportation.
Simplify cleaning your Monolith BBQ Guru Edition ceramic grill with the ash hook. The durable stainless steel tool will reach deep into the ceramic fire box to remove ashes for easy cleanup. After cooling down, simply lift up the charcoal basket out of the Monolith BBQ Guru Edition by the handles, then use the ash hook to remove the ashes out of the bottom of the chamber without the need to disassemble any parts of the grill. You can also use the ash hook to clean and scrape out the ashes in the ash compartment.
The sturdy grate lifter allows for safe and easy lifting and removal of hot grill grates. It features a bamboo handle and is made of polished stainless steel.
Two Bamboo Side Tables
The Monolith BBQ Guru Edition has two practical bamboo side tables for extra working surfaces. The supportive and durable bamboo tables make cooking convenient by providing more room for your grill tools, food, condiments, and spices. Fold down the tables when not in use. To use a BBQ Guru Temperature control unit with the ceramic grill, the control mount must be attached to the left bamboo side table.
The Monolith BBQ Guru Edition features a stylish bamboo handle for safe opening and closing of the ceramic lid. When in use, grab and securely place the handle in your hand to protect yourself from the hot lid. Easily open or close the lid by slowing moving it up or down. Assembly not required.
Charcoal Basket with Divider
The stainless steel charcoal basket significantly improves airflow within the grill and is ideal when using medium to high temperatures. The extra airflow enables the charcoal to reach higher temperatures faster and allows the ashes to fall through the bars to prevent both clogging and obstruction to the air supply. The charcoal baskets for the Monolith BBQ Guru Edition Classic and Monolith BBQ Guru Edition Le Chef can be divided, allowing you to use only half the area to create direct and indirect grilling zones.
Deflector Stone (halved) and Lift
The deflector stone protects your food from direct heat, creating a perfectly controllable convection oven. By placing the deflector stone over the hot coals you can cook large pieces of meat, whole fish, and poultry to perfection on low temperatures. This set up is ideal for low-and-slow barbecue cooking. The two half-moon shaped ceramic deflector stones, together with the charcoal basket, enable you to create different heat zones within the Monolith BBQ Guru Edition Classic and Monolith BBQ Guru Edition Le Chef. Place the deflector stones, or if desired just one deflector stone, on the stainless steel lift. This enables you to cook indirectly on one half while simultaneously directly grilling on the other half.
Stainless Steel Grill Grate
Grill like a professional directly over hot coals on the stainless steel grate. High heat directly from the coals gives your food those desired grill marks and true authentic barbecue flavor. The Monolith BBQ Guru Edition Classic has a steel grate diameter of 18in., making it the perfect choice for all your outdoor cooking needs. With a steel grate diameter of 21.5in., the Monolith BBQ Guru Edition Le Chef is great for cooking large amounts of meat or simultaneously cooking many different dishes.
Stainless Steel Extension Grate
Quickly expand your cooking area with the stainless steel extension grate. The specially formed legs allow the grate to be placed securely on top of the regular stainless steel grate or the 2nd level grate.
Second Level Stainless Steel Grate (Le Chef only) Create a greater cooking capacity and efficiency by elevating food to additional levels with the 2 half-moon second level stainless steel grate. The specially formed legs allow the grate to be placed securely on top of the regular stainless steel grate. Cook on up to three tiers by stacking the extension grate on top of the second level grate. For superior flexibility, use the half-moon grates to create an indirect cooking zone on the other half.
