Argentine Grill Kit (Free Standing) Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero Alternate Style
Argentine Grill Kit (Free Standing) 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
The Free Standing Argentine Grill Kit is the alternative chosen by those who require portability. Often chosen with a front facing wheel, this grill can be used to turn your fireplace into a fabulous grill, or removed to allow the fireplace to be enjoyed without the grill.

The Argentine Grill Kit can be equipped with Argentine V-Grates, Cast Iron Grates, Round Rod Grates, Expanded Metal Grates, and Mesh Grates.
The Argentine Grill Kit with Side Brasero in A36 Steel 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.

South African Braai
Our Exhibition Charbroiler is designed to burn wood or charcoal below sloped, grease draining, flareup avoiding Argentine style grates or cast iron commercial grates. Precise temperature control is accomplished by a height adjustable fuel grate. Raise it to sear and drop to finish meats at a low temperature. The fuel grate is available in mesh, or can be fitted with firebricks depending on the cooking style preferred. Available with a discrete hidden crank to raise or lower the fuel grate or exhibit the workings of this grill with a large wheel in the open for everyone to see. Customers have even outfitted this grill with a rear brasero to allow them to exhibit the making of embers to all who wish to see. See the video below, for a view of the optional Brazilian Rotisserie.

Cooking temperature isn't the only temperature controlled on our exhibition charbroiler! This Exhibition Charbroiler is equipped with firebox insulation for a happy chef.

Available in a variety of sizes, from 26" to 36" deep, and 30", 36", 48", 60", and 72" wide.

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.
