If you’re looking for a grill that will last and impress, let us introduce you to a new member of our Argentine Gaucho line of grills. The distinctive material combination of stainless and Corten brings a contemporary feel to the age-old practice of wood fired cooking. The upper, functional components are still made from rust resistant, 304 grade stainless steel, but is combined with a stylized Corten weathering steel fully enclosed, brick lined firebox for an unparalleled aesthetic completely its own. This large commercial sized grill is equipped with dual height adjustable cooking grates, eliminating the need to transferring hot, messy embers from a brasero to a hearth. Simply build your fire and adjust the cooking surfaces by turning the large hand wheels on each side. We cut out unnecessary front doors or vents that add cost but no functional benefit. Airflow is abundant in an open pit style bbq and firebrick lining just drives up the heat further for the perfect sear. The massive upper grate perfect for offloading or resting finished cuts. You’ll be hard pressed to find a more attractive, higher quality, or more user-friendly alternative.
What is Corten weathering steel?
Corten steel is a group of steel alloys which were developed to obviate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years. It’s often used as an ornamental feature in modern architecture, notably on many Starbucks stores. It has increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion when compared to other steels. It resists the corrosive effects of rain, snow, ice, fog, and other meteorological conditions by forming a coating of dark brown oxidation over the metal, which inhibits deeper penetration and negates the need for painting and costly rust-prevention maintenance over the years. In simple terms the steel is allowed to rust and that rust forms a protective coating that slows the rate of future corrosion. Base color will change and develop over time.
