Prefabricated Brick & Concrete Grills

In the section Types of Grills, I listed the various types that are popular for cooking an asado. Portable grills and flat table-type grills are easy to explain and visualize. The prefabricated grills that are found inside or outside of homes and restaurants can be visualized better through pictures.

This is an average-sized prefabricated parrilla for the home:

Parilla Full

Dimensions of above grill:

Total: 84″ height x 57″ width

Left Grill Surface: 14″ length x 22″ width
Right Grill Surface: 27″ length x 22″ width

Min. Lowered Grill Surface: 6″ from bottom
Max Raised Grill Surface: 18″ from bottom

Close up view of the racks:

Parrilla Close

As you can see there are two chains on each side of the racks. The racks are balanced by guides attached to the chains that run along L-shaped or T-shaped beams on each side.

View from the side:

Parrilla Side

A lockable hand crank on the side allows you to adjust the height of the left grill rack. A similar crank is on the opposite side to control the height of the right grill rack.

The fire is usually started and maintained under the left rack. When the coals are ready they are spread around below the right rack; the main grilling area. A small amount is usually leftover so that, if needed, extra wood or coals can be added to prepare for later use. Because of this, the left rack is seldom used by some for cooking purposes and serves more as a warming section.

  6. That link in comments above is the only one i’ve come across that appears to sell them. The mid-90′s retro web design might kill your eyes though.

    You could try building one like this guy or a good mason/chimney builder could probably set you up.

    How much was the shipping, how difficult was to assemble it and how resistant is it to the snow and rain?

  12. Hello,

    We can import parrillas from Argentina to the USA. Our prices will be FOB Argentina.

    Our models are in the following sizes:

    Portables:
    – 60cm x 45cm
    – 80cm x 45cm
    – 100cm x 45cm
    – 90cm x 60cm

    all these parrillas are easy to assemble and disassemble, with wheels, sturdy construction, grils in V-shape (that is ideal and typical of Argentine grills) in enamel and includes refracting bricks for increasing heat. They are easy to clean.

    We also have parrillas with an even more sturdy construction, with bricks in the sides as well that will allow for even higher heat. The sizes are the same the only variation will be the weight.

    You can also order an smaller, lightweight parrilla that can be folded with 95cm height and around 60cm in width. This is very practical for camping. There is a 50cm version as well but can’t be folded.

    We also have “fogonera” where you can built your fire with charcoal or wood and the “brasero uruguayo” that fits on the top of the fogonera so you can place your logs or charcoals on top and collect the hot coals at the bottom of the fogonera. We have the fogonera as stand alone or as a version that can hang on one side of the portable parrillas (recommended only for the 90cm and 100cm parrillas due to the added weight of logs or charcoal on one side).

    All our parrillas comes with the classical lever and chains for adjusting the grill height. All the construction is 100% Argentine.

    Please bear in mind we don’t hold inventory yet in the USA but we can work in a per order basis and we will ship it from Argentina to your home. The payment need to be 50% when ordering and 50% when the product is shipped (not received). You will be responsible of paying taxes when the courier deliver the parrilla to your home.

    If interested, then please send me an email with your interest and I will send you photos and details. We don’t have a website yet for the USA market as the demand is small for now and the main export is going to Europe.

    Thanks

    Regards

  13. Hello,

    We also have the grill mount system with the V-shaped grill, the mechanism , and optional modules for skewers (can make Brazilian’s rodizio with that) and other types of grills. The thing is that you will need somewhere to install the system. I do recommend you the parrillas we import from Argentina. We have bigger sizes of up to 1 meter in width and can fulfill the same function without having to pay over $1,000 as with the pre-fabricated concrete grills. Our grills are between USD $100 and $350 FOB Argentina depending on the size. If interested, please let me know by email. We import directly from the manufacturer and we don’t have stock or a showroom in the USA as yet.
