One of the most exciting projects a homeowner can undertake is a real Argentine Parrilla in it's own fireplace.
When designing a fireplace to hold a grill, there are few important issues to consider:
- It is important that the grill sits back a few inches from the front of the fireplace, otherwise, an attempt to heat the entire grill grate will result in embers falling on the ground, or worse yet, on bare toes!
- NorCal Ovenworks recommends 28 inches depth for a parrilla.
- Decide how wide the grill will be.
- Decide if a brasero will be used.
- If a brasero will be used, will a half wall be installed between the grill and the braser?
- How thick will the fireplace walls be?
Consult with NorCal Ovenworks before building your masonry fireplace. We've been involved in many fireplace projects, and our advice isn't cheap, it's free. A sample drawing of a fireplace is included here. We have the fireplace kit available, or you can use it as a template for your own design.
We have built Argentine Grill Kits in dimensions from 32" Wide X 20" Front to Back to 96" Wide X 36" Front to Back. We can split them in half, although we recommend a 60/40 split on sizes of 60" wide or more. We have front facing wheels, chain wheel operators, and many features that we are waiting for adventurers to ask for. Challenge us, we like nothing better than to make something cool!
The Argentine Grill Kit can be adapted to be:
- Free Standing
- Installed on a Masonry Firebox
- Installed in a Fireplace built by others
- Installed in a fireplace provided by NorCal Ovenworks
- Equipped with Argentine V-Grates, Cast Iron Grates, Round Rod Grates, Expanded Metal Grates, and Mesh Grates.
