NorCal Ovenworks announces a line of BBQ grills meant to be the ultimate wood burning grill pits for residential use. One of the most beautiful wood burning barbecue grill pits we have ever built, these Argentine barbecue grills feature heavy duty 3/16" steel construction, our signature wheel, and a traditional sloped Argentine style angle iron grill grate with drip pan to avoid flareups. No Brasero is included with these grills so that you can have the tasty smoke flavor on your grilled foods. In addition, our Argentine grills are designed to be lined with split firebricks (by customer to save on shipping) on the floor for a long lasting firebox. Most customers line the floor only with split fire bricks for an authentic Argentine look.

We don't build a lot of South African Braais, but we have built them. Very similar to an Argentine or Uruguayan grill, they are usually enclosed, have an ember maker, an adjustable grill, potjie hook for making pap, and often include a rotisserie. The photo shown included a rotisserie, and a box to keep the rotisserie motors out of the rain.
Completely custom, call to flesh your requirements out, and we'll happily build one to your specifications.
Our Uruguayan Grill Kit or Parrilla kit for residential home use is designed to bring real gaucho style meats or asado to your table. This grill is designed to cook grilled meats or asado, over red hot wood coals. The hearth and hearth grate is used to burn wood to red hot coals which are then pushed beneath the grill grate for the best tasting barbecue. The adjustable grill angle allows for total control of the grilling temperature, and different grill temperatures to be maintained simultaneously, allowing the grill to be used for beef, pork, chicken, sausage, and sweetbreads.
This grill can be used on top of our 63" X 36" Asado Catering Fire Table for the ultimate in flexibility. Photo courtesy of Alvaro Puga, Ocean City, NJ, one of my many friends in Asado!
