Grill Dome was founded by Tarsem Kohli in Atlanta, GA over 25 years ago. At that time ceramic cookers available in the market could only withstand very low cooking temperatures of only 300 to 350 degrees before cracking. As an engineer at heart, and an avid griller, Tarsem felt it would be a good challenge for him to research and develop ceramics that could not only withstand higher temperatures, but also actually improve your ability to cook more consistently. Fire is a phenomenon that is wild and therefore hard to control, but most grills designs do little to address this. Tarsem felt it was important to create a cooker that was built of better materials and also engineered to produce more consistent cooking results. In 1989, GRILL DOME set out to bring the best ceramic composition and best engineered design to market.
