Argentine Grill Kit for Fireplace (Chimney) Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero Alternate Style
Argentine Grill Kit with Drip-pan, Cables, Side Rails, Ratchet Lock, and Wheel Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero, Drip-pan, Cables, Side Rails, Ratchet Lock, and Wheel

One of the most exciting projects a homeowner can undertake is a real Argentine Parrilla in it's own fireplace.
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.

Commercial Charcoal Grill with Adjustable Grill Grate South African Braai 1000 Contractor

Charcoal Grill with Adjustable Grill Grate South African Braai 1000 Contractor
We were approached by a chain of Latin American Grocery Stores in Texas with the requirements for a grill to charbroil very large quantities of split marinated chicken. The grill had to be specifically for charcoal, put a good sear on chicken, have a split grill for versatility, be adjustable to finish cooking the chicken without burning, and above all, be more rugged than their toughest employee!

Constructed of 3/8" thick steel, with a 3" X 2" "C" Channel" Grill Hoist frame instead of the standard 2" X 1" So far, we have built this grill in two sizes, 72" X 36" X 6" and 96" X 36" X 6". There is a 12" backsplash on the rear of the grill, 8 inch sides, and 6 inch front. The grill grates are our signature individually removable 3/8" square rods for the ultimate sear and grill marks.
