Asadores (Those Roasting Crosses) Measurements

A few inquiries have landed landed in the inbox recently about specs or where to buy those crosses(asadores) that one can can use to roast a whole lamb, suckling pig, or ribs. I’ll cover the topic of cooking with one in detail at some point, but for now, here is a little info for those interested.

Here’s a site that sells them in Argentina but I don’t know if they’ll take international orders. They have some photos of the different types–too small for great detail–and height/width measurements.

You can see more photos and measurements on auction sites such as Deremate and MercadoLibre. (Those are vague asador searches but you can try adding criollo, cruz, and/or patagonico for refinement.)

In my opinion, have one built locally at a metal shop. You’ll be paying an arm and a leg to ship something that is quite simple in design. To create one at its simplest form, all you need to do is have a couple pieces of flat iron bars wielded together. For an adjustable one, they can figure something out.

Finally, I came across this site that has some great pics of a rectangular one in action.

  1. We have roasting crosses, roasting cross tables that hold 4 lambs, and grill tables for asado catering. See and look under Asado Catering Equipment.

    If you use it for Argentine Asado, then we will make it here in the US, if we can.
