Argentine style outdoor cooking comes to the UK
Grill inspired by Argentine Gauchos and Californian cowboys

June, 2015.

With eating outdoors on the rise, and continued interest in different methods and styles of cooking, Ox Grills has launched a new grill for outdoor dining in the UK.

Similar in design to the grills used in London restaurants like Barbecoa and Ember Yard, the new Ox Grill allows foodies to experience Argentine style cooking in the comfort of their own garden patio.

The design of the grill is a firebox in which charcoal or wood is burned, above this is a frame that holds a v-shaped grilling surface. A handwheel on the side operates to raise and lower the whole grill over the fire, enabling the food to be cooked either on low temperatures furthest away from the fire, or very high temperatures close to the fire.

Set to be a talking point for those who love to entertain outside, the Ox Grill allows you to cook on wood as well as charcoal, giving the serious cooking enthusiast the ability to “hot smoke” food at the same time it’s being grilled.

The grilling surface is made up of a set of v-shape channels, common in Argentine “parrilla” grills, which drip fat away from the food to reduce flare-up from the fire below.

What’s more, the grill is made entirely of stainless steel, meaning the product can live happily outside all year round.

For those looking for a BBQ to impress friends and family, the Ox Grill is a welcome addition to the UK market: not only is it great to look at, it has serious outdoor cooking heritage, and genuine advantages over other available BBQ’s.

Steve Ollerenshaw from Ox Grills says: “We were inspired to set up Ox Grills after being unable to find a charcoal BBQ that worked well and looked good all year round on a patio, rather than being hidden in a shed when not in use. Because it is so adjustable it can toast bread one minute and sear steaks the next. The grill surface retains more heat compared to standard BBQ’s and gives the meat those classic searing stripes. Also the firebox is so large that it can be filled up to give a cooking time of over three hours. ”

The Ox Grill has been designed to appeal to the serious home BBQ enthusiast but is also strong enough for commercial applications, such as pubs and hotels.

With prices starting at £1850 plus delivery, the Ox Grill can be purchased as a built-in version, or with a stainless steel stand.

About Ox Grills and Design Heritage

Ox Grills set up in 2015 to bring a new style of outdoor grilling to the UK market.

The design of the Ox Grill can be traced back to Argentina, the spiritual home of cooking meat outdoors. A tradition of outdoor cooking, known as "asado", grew up there. “Parrilla" grills were set into brick chimneys and contained a wide grill that could be raised and lowered on a chain by the asador. They often had “v-shape” grilling surfaces rather than standard bars.

The design was then taken to the United States by ranchers settling in California and the frame and handwheel were added. Sometimes these grills were towed out by horse and cart to the cowboys working the cattle. In the US, this style of grill is referred to as a “Santa Maria” BBQ, but has not been widely available in the UK before now.

The company manufactures the product in the UK and is hopeful that the UK market will adopt this style of BBQ grill as an aspirational product in the sector
