Two Insert Styles: Drop In Frame and Drop In Firebox

Drop In Frame

This style is designed for islands constructed of solid brick. A drop in frame comes without a metal firebox. The drop in frame is inserted into an existing countertop opening and the fire is lit on the existing built in brick firebox.

Our grills are built to last and impress!

With heavy-duty construction and superior craftsmanship our grills will outlast and outperform any other wood grill, charcoal grill, or gas grill on the market. We fully weld our grills, don't use rivets. We use thicker material and have perfected the design to virtually eliminate malfunction.  

Easy installation

Our inserts are designed to drop into a rectangular counter opening and rest in the opening on their four flanges. No bolting, gluing, or caulking required. Drop in firebox styles have 1.5" lips. Drop in frame styles have 2.5" lips. The lips cover most opening imperfections for a clean finish.

How do you clean a Santa Maria - Argentine grill?

Just wait until the ash is cool, raise up the grate and use our flathead hand scoop to empty the ash. Grates can be brushed with a bristle brush, pumice stone, or wood scraper.
