Why Use a Charcoal Grate when on a Santa Maria Argentine BBQ Grill?
By Adding a BBQ Charcoal Grate to your Santa Maria Argentine Style grill will improve air circulation. This is especially critical when using charcoal or lump coal, as the fuel source is already broken into smaller pieces and burns quickly. By adding a charcoal grate under the coal, you allow the white powdery ash to fall to the bottom of the grill, while the smaller charcoal pieces stay above the ash bed and maintain a steady airflow above and below the coal, keeping the coal nice and hot for optimum cooking temperatures. This is essential for cooking with both types of fuel, as it can be difficult to maintain a consistent temperature without a BBQ Charcoal Grate. So, if you’re serious about grilling with charcoal, then a BBQ Charcoal Grate is a must-have piece of equipment.
