Argentine Grill Kit without Brasero Argentine Grill Kit for Santa Maria Firebox
Argentine Grill Kit without Brasero with Drip-pan, Cables, Side Rails, Ratchet Lock, and Wheel Argentine Grill Kit for Santa Maria Firebox with Drip-pan, Cables, Side Rails, Ratchet Lock, and Wheel
The Argentine Grill Kit without Brasero is available to fit a 36.5X24X12 firebox, a 42.5X24X12 firebox, or a 48.5X24X12 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.

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

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.
