The Gourmand's Natural Hardwood Grill.
Described by the late James Beard as "brilliantly thought out and well-constructed," this natural hardwood grill's design is inspired by the grills used to prepare asado--the renowned barbecue of Argentina. The grill's flywheel raises or lowers the grill grates by 16", allowing you to quickly adjust the height of the cooking surface as the flames rise and fall. The V-shaped grill grates have a 4º decline that channels juices and fat to the drip pan, reducing flare ups and providing a convenient apparatus for basting food. Its patented construction funnels air flow through the front of the unit and across the fire until it reaches the concave reflector that directs optimal heat to the grill's surface. This design creates high temperatures at the back of the grill (ideal for searing steaks), medium heat at the center, and low heat at the front (for slow cooking). The grill is handmade from brushed 304 stainless steel using 9 to 14 gauge parts. The grill has a rotisserie spit, two wheeled legs, and requires only a 15-minute assembly. Intended for use with hardwood, the grill also accommodates charcoal. Made in the U.S.
