The design of the grill is a firebox in which charcoal or wood is burned, above this is a frame that holds a v-shaped grilling surface. A handwheel on the side operates to raise and lower the whole grill over the fire, enabling the food to be cooked either on low temperatures furthest away from the fire, or very high temperatures close to the fire.
The Ox Grill allows you to cook on wood as well as charcoal, and to "hot smoke" food at the same time it’s being grilled.
The grilling surface is made up of a set of v-shape channels, common in Argentine "parrilla" grills, which drip fat away from the food to reduce flare-up from the fire below.
The grill is made of stainless steel.
Steve Ollerenshaw from Ox Grills said: "We were inspired to set up Ox Grills after being unable to find a charcoal BBQ that worked well and looked good all year round on a patio, rather than being hidden in a shed when not in use. Because it is so adjustable it can toast bread one minute and sear steaks the next. The grill surface retains more heat compared to standard BBQ’s and gives the meat those classic searing stripes. Also the firebox is so large that it can be filled up to give a cooking time of over three hours."
The Ox Grill has been designed to appeal to the serious home BBQ enthusiast and for commercial applications, such as pubs and hotels.
