The upper grill functions as a warming rack but can also be used as a first stage primary grill by removing the lower grill pieces and lowering both the grills to their lowest position.
This means that the grill is suitable for three distinct applications. In cases where there is already a firebox, then only the upper grill mechanism is required. In cases where the grill will be recessed into a bench top, then the firebox and upper grill mechanism drop neatly into an 80cm x 50cm hole in the stone bench top. In cases where the grill needs to be free standing, then the trolley, firebox and upper grill mechanism form a complete, integrated, mobile system.
The grill is inclined gently towards the front of the unit to a light weight, deep dish removable drip tray.
The lower grill is also made of three separate grill sections seated next to each other in the grill frame. These sections lift straight out of the frame for cleaning and are small enough to fit in a dishwasher.
Two insulated sliding doors at the front of the firebox provide access for replenishing wood fuel and ventilation control.
A stainless steel lower shelf provides storage and adds rigidity to the construction.
Gaucho BBQ Grills represent a return to traditional barbecuing methods that utilise charcoal and wood to produce superior smoke-infused flavours. The Argentinian parilla is a South American style grill typically used with leaner, grass fed beef that requires slower cooking. However, the flexibility of the adjustable grill means the parilla can also be used for quickly searing juicy grain fed beef cuts.
The challenge with wood and charcoal fired BBQs was always controlling the heat. Our Argentinian parilla style grills utilise a cable and winch style system that allows the grill to be raised or lowered to adjust the heat intensity as required. The two tier grill also provides lots of flexibility and both of the grill tiers operate independently.
With its unique, modular design, the Gaucho wood fire BBQ Grill can be configured for three applications:
- Upper Grill Mechanism Only – bolt the two tier adjustable grill over your own fire pit.
- Firebox / Grill Combination – drop the firebox into your own stone bench top. Just make a hole 80cm x 50cm and the firebox drops straight in.
- Complete Mobile System – take the two tier adjustable grill assembly, insulated firebox and heavy duty trolley for maximum mobility.
