Unanticipated perk! During cooking, the user can talk with others standing around full-circle; instead of staring at a BBQ lid with your guests at your back
I have been cooking in restaurants for over 41 years, and have to say this is the best restaurant quality cooking you can own for your house. The coal or wood fired flavor it gives, is one of the first things your guest will notice. Searing, at its best, also rotisserie, pizza, and charcoal grill right up there as close or as is in any restaurant.
Grill of my dreams
From start to finish, everything about my purchase has been great. Shipping was only 2 days and packaging was very well done. The tools they give you to put together the Arteflame are so well thought out. The lifting gizmo for griddle plate made it so much easier. Even the food saver comes with a little tool to bend the fins into position. I’ve only had the 40” low European grill a few weeks, so I’m still experimenting with the best fire building technique. This grill is the combination I have been searching for and completes the “upfit” of my backyard plan. I can’t wait to surround it with friends.
