I’ve had many barbecues over the years (always charcoal I will add) – but they’ve never quite worked for me. And then I discovered Kadai Fire Bowls.
in 2017, I treated myself to a 80cm Recycled Kadai. These are a copy of the Original Kadai, made from recycled steel oil drums by the same caste of skilled craftsmen in Rajasthan.
I’ve not looked back!
Whilst in the process of purchasing, I was like a kid in a sweetshop… The choice of accessories was extensive to say the least – and I’ll be honest, I could have bought a shiny, new Smeg cooker for what I ended up spending but it has been worth it’s weight in gold.
So what’s so special about the Kadai Bowl?
First off it just holds heat so well – and because I bought the 80cm bowl, it’s so easy to light a small fire and have the option of direct, intense heat – or a lower warming heat all from the same grill.
One of the things that really appealed to me was the ability to cook over the fire – then throw a couple of logs on and sit around the fire after dinner. The Kadai is just perfect for this.
So what kit did I buy..?
- 80cm recycled Kadai Firebowl
- The Holi Grill – it’s a full size grill – but with a removable circular centre section which is perfect is when cooking with wood – or when you want to grill – and use a bowl
- Cooking Tripod with Chain
- Hanging Bowl
- Swing Grill
- Chapati Pan
- Zhara Roasting Pan
- Hot Plate
- The Kadai Glove
- Kadai Firebowl Shovel
I’ll get around to explaining more about each of the bits over the next few weeks – and get some videos shot – but if you’re interested – have a look at the KADAI website
