Description

If you like cooking outdoors in summer, this pedestal barbecue really is the thing for you. You can simply use the fire bowl to warm you up, or also use the griddle to prepare all your meals. The unique design makes this versatile cooker a real eye-catcher on your patio.

The fire bowl and the pedestal are made of Corten (weathering) steel. This corrosion-resistant process protects the metal and it becomes even more beautiful when exposed to the elements. The fire bowl and pedestal are delivered “ready-rusted” and cannot rust further due to this Corten steel. You should be careful at the beginning, though, because rain can cause rust spots to form on the base.

This model has a diameter of 80 cm. This size will make an immediate impression on your guests. With an 80 cm pedestal barbecue, as many as 6 to 10 people can stand around the fire bowl. You can use this cosy outdoor cooker for an intimate evening with a few friends or for a large family party. The 80 cm diameter model is suitable for preparing meals for up to around 30 people.

Burning wood in the fire bowl produces a cosy heat to warm up your guests. This means you can enjoy cooking outdoors even in winter. The fire bowl is very efficient because the maximum amount of heat is absorbed by the fire bowl rather than simply disappearing into the air. The fire bowl then radiates the heat into the surrounding area.

You can also use the pedestal, likewise made of Corten steel, without the fire bowl. You can put plants or statues on it as decoration for your garden, for example.

The plancha or griddle, made of 10 mm thick cast iron, allows you to prepare delicious food. It is important to rub oil all over the top and sides of this griddle before use. Fish, meat, potatoes, vegetables, fruit, eggs, mushrooms,… everything can be prepared on this plancha or griddle.

After the meal, you can put some wood in the fire bowl and continue to enjoy the warmth and flames rising from it.

Manual

Using for the first time:

When you make a fire for the first time, it is necessary to keep the fire small for the first 25 minutes before increasing it. Because the plate gets considerably hotter on the inside than on the outside, it will always be concave when heated. However, if the fire is too big the first time, the plate will be much more concave in the future compared with when the fire is built up gradually. The plate has to settle. This procedure is no longer necessary after the first fire.

The barbecue works best after it has been used once or twice and the oil has been burned into the plate. This simplifies the cooking process and protects the plate from rusting when it is not being used. If you do not use your griddle for a long time, it is advisable to rub vegetable oil over it evenly every 7 - 10 days.

Use:

Type of wood:
  • Choose very dry wood, because wet wood produces smoke
  • Opt for a slowburning hardwood variety, such as beech. This produces large coals when the wood burns.
  • Oak wood is not recommended because it burns completely to ash, making it less convenient for cleaning.
  • Make sure the wood logs are not too big, otherwise you won’t have enough oxygen in the fire bowl.
  • Do not use tropical hardwood because it produces too much heat, making cooking more difficult.
Protect the griddle against rust:
  • Use olive oil to grease the griddle the first few times: this will give the plate a nice brown/black colour.
  • After you’ve used the plate a few times, it is then better to use sunflower oil. This oil has a higher combustion rate.
  • Apply the oil to both the top and the sides.
  • If you do not use your plate for a long time, you should rub oil over it every 7 10 days.
  • Suffering from rust? This is easy to remove with fine steel wool. If the rust is persistent, you can always sand the plate.

Cleaning

  • Before putting your food on the griddle, first make sure it is clean. Fortunately, a pedestal barbecue is virtually maintenancefree. Food residues and excess oil end up in the fire.
  • The griddle is easy to clean with a damp cloth.

Using the griddle:

  • First make sure the griddle is clean.
  • Put the dry wood in the fire bowl and light a firelighter underneath. Wait for it to get nice and hot.
  • Once the fire is burning well in the fire bowl, it will take around 3045 minutes to reach the maximum temperature of 300 °C. The temperature will then be 300 °C in the centre of the plate and 200 °C at the edges.
  • During heating, the plate will become slightly concave. However, this will not affect the cooking process and when the plate cools down, it will straighten out again.
  • When the plate gets warm, scrape the griddle clean with a spatula. In this way, you can remove any oil or fat residues from previous use.
  • Once the plate is completely clean, you can rub it with oil. Put extra oil on the area you want to use for cooking. During cooking, you can always add more oil as needed.
  • TIP: to cook more slowly or give your ingredients a smoky flavour, you can always lay strips of cedar wood on the griddle.

After use:

  • Let the fire go out slowly. You can speed up this process by putting a lid on the fire bowl and removing the oxygen in this way.
  • Once the plate has cooled down to a lukewarm temperature, scrape it clean with the spatula and rub oil over it again. This will provide the plate with good protection against rust so it is ready to use again.
  • You can easily remove the ash from the fire bowl. Make sure the ash has cooled down completely before disposing of it.
