New System for Asado

We are emphasizing a new system for Asado grilling. Our Asado line started like this:

Asado Fire Table (63X36X24) with Asado Grill (54X27X12).
Several options were added, for example, the Asado Grill can be replaced with the 54X27 Uruguayan Grill Kit:

Uruguayan Grill Kit (on aa slightly smaller Fire Table) The standard fire table makes the Uruguayan Grill Kit fit just like the Asado Grill.
Additionally, 2 60X24 Argentine Crosses with Adjustable Bases or 2 Criolla Crosses with Adjustable Bases can be fitted on the Asado Fire Table. (Shown in the shop before bricks were added.)

Even More Options are available, for Example, place a rod across the firetable at a height of 36" for 4 Brazilian Swords and a Hanging Grill:

Firetable with Central Rod for 4 Swords and Hanging Grill
The Swords and Grill are the same ones shown here, but the legs on the fire-table and welded center rod are a better, more stable platform.:

Old Method for Swords and hanging Grill. A Table and welded center support rod is more stable.

Additionally, Mallmann fans have been asking for a system to allow hanging chickens, ducks, and various meats above a portable fire-table. Here is what our solution is, and the hanging rack can be set either 48" or 36" above the firetable:

Solution for Hanging Poultry, Meats, and even Fish at 36" or 48" above the top of the firetable.

Another solution is a set-up that features 3 Cabrito Crosses clamped onto a Fire-table:

Really Cool Design

My customers are pushing me, and every day, I have to reach deeper and deeper into my bag of tricks. Here is a grill I designed yesterday. The main challenge is that I have very little room, and the customers functionality demands are intense. In this case, I used a few concepts from Extebarri in Spain, one of the best restaurants in the world. In my opinion, I fixed a few of the design flaws with Extebarri's grills. That's a 36" True Chef Base tucked below the grill. We'll cut holes for 1/9 hotel pans in the front shelf, for sauces, etc. I'm hoping my customer lets me use black glazed firebricks for this grill. BBQ grils should be black, in my opinion.

Grill for Hotel in Qatar

We were asked to make a gas grill for Qatar, in a somewhat elaborate style. This grill is 72X30, and features a brick lined firebox, 6 commercial cast iron burners, a rear burner for fire effects, and adjustable grill grates.

Hotel Grill for Qatar. Is it primitive, or modern?

This Parrilla, By NorCal Ovenworks Inc. is designed to put on a show.

Straight on, 6 Powerful Searing burners/

This view won't be seen normally, but here it is for completeness.

Most larger grills are shipped overseas in a steel box. Wooden crates, which must be certified to be free of insects and vermin are actually more expensive for us to use.

We do Custom Grills

I want to give an example of the type of custom grills we do. Say, for example, that you admired this grill from Latin America:

If you called NorCal Ovenworks, and asked for a similar grill, I would design one for you. I'm pretty sure the inspiration grill is 96" X 36", but here is one I have designed that is 72" X 30", a very practical size. The grill is constructed of 3/8" thick steel, quite rugged.

Little Things Our Smallest Grill

Here is a photo of the smallest Argentine Style Grill we have ever made.

This grill is installed in a home in Athens, Illinois, in the kitchen. While small, it is all that is needed for a small family to have grilled foods year round.
