Our single crank Santa Maria Style BBQ grill showcases a four-sided, fully formed welded firebox, designed for longevity and ease of use. Tailor your grilling experience by choosing from three cooking grate options, whether you’re grilling top sirloin or a rack of ribs.

Our expanded steel cooking grate, is seasoned similar to a cast iron skillet, and is a perfect all-round grill grate. Alternatively, you can opt for stainless grate upgrades, providing impressive results, easy cleaning, and rust resistance. For those who want a grill grate that provides limited flare ups, Argentine V grates are the way to go. Our personal favorite is the Stainless Free Float Round rod grates. They are warp resistant easy to clean and give perfect grill marks. Plus, the height-adjustable cooking grate system ensures even cooking temperatures and hassle-free ash clean-out.

As proud American manufacturers, we uphold the highest quality standards, ensuring that each grill meets and exceeds expectations.

Operating a wood charcoal grill is a breeze. Simply build your wood or charcoal fire in the brick-lined grill firebox, directly on the heat-resistant firebrick surface. Once the logs are aglow, place your food on the grate. The grate is height is adjustable by turning the hand wheel on the side, allowing you to achieve the perfect temperature for any dish. If you need to add fuel, simply lift the grate and add some more wood, then use a poker to even out the coal bed.

The ingenious airflow system enters from the top of the open fire pit, circulating within the firebox to elevate the heat. Cleaning out the ash is as easy as lifting the grate and using a flathead hand shovel to scoop it away.

For those seeking an adventure in grilling, our height-adjustable rotisserie with an electric motor capable of turning loads up to 85 lbs. is a stellar add-on you’ll love. Experience the unparalleled flavors of wood fire, and you’ll never want to cook on your gas grill again.
