Caliber Testimonials

“I love the range. The pure power of the burners is like a dream come true for a chef. The oven heats up so fast and has perfect even heat distribution.” Executive Chef Adrian Giese, Mastro’s LA

“I have two grills in my backyard – they’re both from Caliber and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The gas powered Caliber Rockwell with its ingenious disappearing lid is a work horse for when I require consistent heat for perfect grilling. And the Caliber Pro Kamado has been a complete game changer when it comes to anything charcoal.  It starts with the design allowing for a single pound of fuel to last longer in it than any other kamado-shaped grill in the industry. But the amazingness really gets going with its industry exclusive rotisserie and rear blaze basket. The proof is in the eating, and my chickens, roasts, lamb etc cook better on the Caliber Pro Kamado than on anything I’ve ever cooked on outside before.” Chef Sam Zien, Sam the Cooking Guy TV Show

“The food I get off the Caliber Pro Kamado is simply more moist than anything I was able to achieve with my old ‘Egg’ smoker – So good, I bought another for my dad” Adam R – Indianapolis, IN

Smoked Cedar Plank Salmon

Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it so you can access it. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 325ºF.

Remove any bones or skin from the salmon filet. Rinse the cedar plank and place it on the grill for 3-4 minutes to bring out the cedar aroma. Brush the plank with olive oil. Place the salmon filet on the plank and brush it with olive oil. Squeeze two lemon wedges over the salmon and sprinkle it with salt, pepper, and dill (optional). Put the plank with salmon on the grill and cook for 15-20 minutes. It is ready when the internal temperature of salmon reaches 135ºF. Enjoy this healthy and delicious entrée.

Ingredients :
Lump charcoal
1-2 cedar planks
2-3 pounds salmon
Olive oil
Fresh lemon wedges
Salt
Pepper
Dill (optional)

Rotisserie Chicken

Wash and brine your chicken with your favorite dry brine and place on the rotisserie rod. Truss the chicken once it’s on the rod and use pliers to tighten the fork screws. Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory 3/4 full of lump charcoal and a handful of apple chips at the top. Put a drip pan at the bottom of your grill to catch the juices for use as a baste after the chicken is cooked. Wear heat protective gloves when inserting the rotisserie rod and chicken. Let the rotisserie run for about an 75 to 90 minutes while basting with olive oil periodically. To check the doneness, turn rotisserie motor off and insert the thermometer into the thickest part of breast with temperature reaching 165 (+/- 5 degrees). Rotisserie chicken on the Caliber Crossflame Silver or Pro gas grill should be cooked on HI initially, and then MED once skin darkens. Cook time and doneness is similar to cooking on the Pro Kamado. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
One 8 lb. chicken or two 4.5 lb. chickens
Olive oil
Your favorite meat dry rub or just salt and pepper
