Argentine Grill Kit for Santa Maria Firebox with Drip-pan, Cables, Side Rails, Ratchet Lock, and Wheel Asado Catering Cross Table for Patagonian Lamb Roast
The Argentine Grill Kit for a Santa Maria Firebox (a pit, which is enclosed on all 4 sides) is available to fit a 36.5 X 24.5 X 12-24 firebox, a 42.5 X 24.5 X 12-24 firebox, or a 48.5 X 24 X 12-24 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 for a Santa Maria Firebox, 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. Shown with more traditional 3/8" round rod grate, the Argentine Grill Kit for a Santa Maria Firebox is available with any of our grates. Note that there are 4 pieces of box channel holding the trim (simulating bricks) in the photo.

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