Argentine style outdoor cooking comes to the UK
Grill inspired by Argentine Gauchos and Californian cowboys
With eating outdoors on the rise, and continued interest in different methods and styles of cooking, Ox Grill has launched a new grill for outdoor dining in the UK.
Similar in design to the grills used in London restaurants like Barbecoa and Ember Yard, the new Ox Grill allows foodies to experience Argentine style cooking in the comfort of their own garden patio.
The design of the grill is a firebox in which charcoal or wood is burned, above this is a frame that holds a v-shaped grilling surface. A handwheel on the side operates to raise and lower the whole grill over the fire, enabling the food to be cooked either on low temperatures furthest away from the fire, or very high temperatures close to the fire.
Set to be a talking point for those who love to entertain outside, the Ox Grill allows you to cook on wood as well as charcoal, giving the serious cooking enthusiast the ability to “hot smoke” food at the same time it’s being grilled.
The grilling surface is made up of a set of v-shape channels, common in Argentine “parrilla” grills, which drip fat away from the food to reduce flare-up from the fire below.
What’s more, the grill is made entirely of stainless steel, meaning the product can live happily outside all year round.
For those looking for a BBQ to impress friends and family, the Ox Grill is a welcome addition to the UK market: not only is it great to look at, it has serious outdoor cooking heritage, and genuine advantages over other available BBQ’s.
Steve Ollerenshaw from Ox Grills says: “We were inspired to set up Ox Grills after being unable to find a charcoal BBQ that worked well and looked good all year round on a patio, rather than being hidden in a shed when not in use. Because it is so adjustable it can toast bread one minute and sear steaks the next. The grill surface retains more heat compared to standard BBQ’s and gives the meat those classic searing stripes. Also the firebox is so large that it can be filled up to give a cooking time of over three hours. ”
The Ox Grill has been designed to appeal to the serious home BBQ enthusiast but is also strong enough for commercial applications, such as pubs and hotels.
With prices starting at £1850 plus delivery, the Ox Grill can be purchased as a built-in version, or with a stainless steel stand.
