Live Grass Bistro Oklahoma

I get to work with all sorts of good people in my position as BBQ Engineer at NorCal Ovenworks Inc. In this case, a ranch is bringing Grass Fed Beef to Edmonds, OK. I hope to visit them when they are far enough along.

For want of a better term, these are the "victims".

The Chef seems happy.

Unfortunately, these grills are real heavy.

This was prior to shipping, from the shop.

El Nido Santa Fe Grill

This morning, I received a call from Chef Randy Tapia because his predecessor lost the bushings for the rotisseries that attach to this grill. He has been helped, and should have his parts in a few days. He shared some of the things he has on his specials, cooked on this grill, and I gave him my spatchcocked chicken recipe. Always nice to talk to customers about how they use these grills.

Nice to hear from a long time customer!

"Thought you might like this photo – we purchased our first Argentine Grill from you about 8-10 years ago and have enjoyed many memorable meals with family and friends!  Everyone claims to have had his/her “best ribeye steak ever” cooked on this grill – and the grilling process itself has become a cherished ritual!

Now that we’ve moved, we just purchased our second grill from you for installation in an outdoor kitchen area at our new home.  Nice to see how your business has grown – congratulations!

Mark & Karen"

They must have purchased the first grill 8 years ago, because we have only been in business 8 years.

The Argentine grill will normally be positioned with the wheel in front of the hood while in use.

This is very large for a residential grill, but the difference between men, and boys, is the size and cost of their toys.
