The Platinum SE includes 640 square inches of cooking area right out of the box. The main cooking surface measures 430 square inches, and the included upper shelf adds in another 210. Up to two more shelves can be added to increase the total cooking area to over 1000 square inches. With that amount of area, the Platinum SE gives plenty of room to cook for parties of 6-8 people.
Durable powder coated black finish on the outside and a stainless steel lined firebox gives the Kuma grill excellent protection from heat and corrosion. Don’t settle for pellet grill that has a couple of stainless steel parts. The Platinum SE has over 60 pounds of high quality 304 stainless steel.
This slim design holds a whopping 18 lbs. of fuel and fits nicely behind the body of the grill giving the Kuma pellet grill a minimized sleek look. No buckets or boxes hanging off the side of this grill. Next to the hopper is a bonus warmer compartment to warm hamburger buns or bread. And the Hopper Stoppertm makes pellet flavor changes quick and easy.
You don’t have to stare at a bucket of old grease while cooking with the Kuma Grill. These easy to use but hidden drip trays collect all of your meat drippings into a disposable foil tray. When it is time to clean the grill, simply pull out the drawer and replace the tray. Or you can clean and reuse them many times.
Instantly activate direct flame grilling. Pellet BBQ’s have not been known for easy high temperature grilling but now with Kuma’s quick grilling zone, you can sear steaks and grill burgers to perfection with the quick slide of a handle. Cooking grids removed from this picture for detail.
The Kuma grill uses a temperature sensor near the cooking grids to read heat levels and automatically feed precise amounts of fuel to the grill. A combustion fan circulates air to provide even heat so you will not burn your food. You can also use pre-programmed smoke settings to give your food just the right amount of natural wood flavor.
With the Kuma’s indirect cooking, heat and natural wood smoke are constantly circulating around your meat keeping it juicy and evenly cooked. With Indirect cooking you do not have to baby sit your food, the can provide low even temperatures for hours of slow cooking. Cook large cuts of meat like pork shoulder, or brisket to a perfect temperature by using the included meat probe.
Now you can expand your outdoor cooking experience with temperature controlled convection cooking. Cook almost any recipe that you would cook in your oven using the Kuma pellet grill . Have fun with the family outside cooking fresh bread, chocolate chip cookies, stuffed southwest peppers, or a smoked cheesecake (seriously, try it!)
