Our Extreme Duty Grills are just that. These grills are heavier and more rustic than our other grills. While not for everyone, they will appeal to those who want the heaviest grill that is practical. Have we gone overboard? You decide!

Do you need a hand wheel big? Do you really want 3/16" steel? Are you willing to leave with a beast that is this heavy?

Ideal homes for these grills include parks, fairgrounds, farms and ranches, wineries and wine tasting rooms, and the homeowner that just wants something distinctive.

NorCal Ovenworks is proud to sell our Extreme Duty Cali Grill Pit. Designed to sit out, in the weather, WITHOUT COVERING, this grill will last 15 or more years without any protection from the weather (the grill pictured is 10 years old), and minimal upkeep.

In its 64" X 48" configuration, this grill provides a grilling surface of 43" X 30" and is designed to sit on top of 48 customer supplied 8" X 8" X 16" split face cement blocks that have been dry stacked (without mortar) on a level surface.

Features:

  • 9" wide X 3/16" formed metal top which sits on top of the cement blocks, holds them in place, and provides a work surface
