The primal practice of wood fired cooking is easier than ever before with our contemporary design. After using and building thousands of wood and charcoal grills, we’ve focused on building grills that perform. We’ve learned that a fully enclosed brick lined firebox is the strongest and most functional design for wood and charcoal grills. Our Argentine grills eliminate the need for transferring hot, messy embers from a brasero to a hearth and cut out unnecessary front doors or vents that add cost but no functional benefit. Simply light your fire directly underneath the adjustable cooking grate and control temperatures by raising and lowering the cooking surface with a hand wheel. Ample airflow enters the grill from above and is retained by the brick lined firebox to drive up the heat. Stoke your fire with a poker and add fuel with the grates lifted and lower the grate over the embers to finish your cook. Built with rust resistant 304 grade stainless steel upper and weathering steel lower, this grill will eventually become a family heirloom. The large upper rack is perfect for offloading or resting finished cuts. It’s our most versatile grill yet.
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. Color will change and develop over time.
