The Black Olive grill is a ceramic bodied Kamado grill automatically fired by wood pellets and produced by Sherwood Industries, makers of the respected Enviro stove line.The major advantages of the ceramic body are good heat retention, eliminating hot and cool spots in the cooking area often found in cookers with a metal carcase. Secondly, the ceramic parts are self - cleaning, needing no more than a brush down when the unit is cold. The Black Olive grill arrives securely packaged in a custom wooden crate, with a little assembly needed before it's ready for use. Due to its weight, and the fragile nature of the ceramic body until fully assembled, two people are required to put it together. The hopper capacity of eleven pounds is enough for twenty hours of as a smoker on low or two hours of searing at 600 degrees plus on high. The right hand shelf carries the analog controller and the pellet hopper, but if space is at a premium, the left hand shelf need not be fitted. A weatherproof grill cover is included as standard and the weight of the dome top is supported by a sprung hinge. It's worth checking out the list of useful accessories below.
