There are always those people that push the boundaries. Push the limits of what has been tried and what can be tried. Here are the Arteflame Family Members that make up "TeamArteflame".

However, it is live-fire cooking that truly brings her joy. Grilling on an Arteflame gives her a chance to have others join in the experience with her and this is her favorite part of owning one. Having used an Arteflame for over 4 years, she is proud to say, it is still one of her favorite grills and it is the focal point of her grill patio.
Tim and Rebecca O’Brien
Tim has always been an avid outdoorsman with an absolute love for hunting, fishing, clamming and just being out in our beautiful Pacific Northwest! He has shared that love with me and we have passed it on to our kids. Something about cooking over a campfire, watching those flames dance in the moonlight, talking and laughing with family and friends, just makes the food taste so much better!
I think this is why we are a perfect fit for Arteflame. They understand that barbequing is more than just one person at the grill cooking up great food. It’s about family, community, and sharing in the experience. The beautiful design of this product allows everyone to be involved in the cook or just socializing around the fire.
We are so excited to be a part of the Arteflame family and can’t wait to share and learn with all of you!
