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".
Melissa Reome aka Grill Momma is a food blogger, mother and pharmacist in upstate New York. She loves to grill on all different types of equipment ranging from live fire cooking over wood or charcoal to Kamado style cooking or grilling on gas or pellet grills.
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.
Joke and Bob Melis
HOUDVUUR (means woodfire as well as holding the fire in Dutch) is an open fire catering concept led by Bob. His wife Joke is the photographer and provides the beautiful images you see. Houdvuur modernizes the old way of cooking on an open fire. The food is as important as the cosiness around the fire, getting together with family and friends. A vision that only Arteflames fulfills; we lost our hearts the first time we saw these gorgeous grills. We hope that we can share this love in the future with everyone in Belgium and all over the world! We are so proud and honored to be part of the Arteflame family!

Salt & Fire BBQ
Nick is a bbq enthusiast with a passion for cooking outdoors. There is nothing better than taking fresh ingredients and using smoke and fire to transform them into delicious meals that can be enjoyed by friends and family. There is something special about food prepared with fire. It’s a simple method yet needs an attention to detail and a delicate hand to create something worth sharing. I felt the name Salt & Fire BBQ was the perfect way to exemplify my style of cooking. Simple ingredients, smoke and fire is all you need to make amazing food.
