Cold Water Deck Mounted Faucet with 18" Swing Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero
$149.00
Cold Water Deck Mounted Faucet with 18" Swing Nozzle Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero, Drip-pan, Cables, Side Rails, Ratchet Lock, and Wheel
This deck mounted single hole outdoor kitchen faucet features an 18" long swing nozzle that extends out and up for better clearance compared to straight nozzles, with a stream regulator outlet to provide you with faster water flow and minimal backsplash. To make installation easy, it also boasts a 1/2" NPSM male inlet which fits into compatible water connections. A simple lever handle design with color-coded index makes it easy to turn the water on and off as needed, and will stand up to plenty of use over time. Additionally, an Eterna compression cartridge provides excellent durability thanks to a solid brass spindle and body, and also makes this faucet great for a outdoor. This faucet also includes a 150A tailpiece set which allows it to be used with 1/4" NPT connections.

The Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero is available to fit a 48.5X25.75X12 firebox, a 54.5 X 25.75 X 12 firebox, or a 60.5 X 25.75 X 12 firebox as well as in custom sizes. Argentines use a brasero to create hot embers, which are raked under the grill to provide a clean, lightly smoky heat source. Americans, who appreciate a heavier smoke flavor, often purchase the Argentine Grill Kit without Brasero, giving them the flare-up reducing benefits of the Argentine style V-grate (cook chicken skin on, bone in without flare-ups) while still providing a smoky flavor. Buy the Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero for the most authentic Argentine grilling experience.

The Argentine Grill Kit can be equipped with Argentine V-Grates, Cast Iron Grates, Round Rod Grates, Expanded Metal Grates, and Mesh Grates.

We set out to make a charcoal grill for the unique requirements of a caterer who wants to cook over charcoal and specializes in chicken. The grill comes in 60" X 24", features an adjustable height grate, a shallow firebox, only 6" deep, and all of the components break down for easy storage inside the firebox. In addition, this grill can be flipped to roast the other side of a grill full of chickens. Haul a dozen of these in your pickup or trailer, set up quickly and easily, and when done, store in a compact space. We will not customize this grill.
