Chargrilled or barbequed food is an increasingly popular al fresco option for diners. However it’s often not quite so popular with the kitchen staff who have to clean equipment at the end of a busy session. Lava rock, which is mistakenly thought by many to give food its distinctive chargrilled flavour, is both messy and makes equipment difficult to clean. Worse still it often provides inconsistent results.
But it is the igniting of fat and flaring which gives food a barbequed or chargrilled taste rather than the lava rock itself, which gives off no aroma. That’s why Lincat have eliminated the need for lava rock from our Opus 700 and Silverlink 600 chargrills.
In its place are specially designed heat transfer radiants. These are more controllable and consistent than lava rock, yet still ignite sufficient fat for optimum flaring to give a distinctive chargrilled taste. At the same time removable branding grids provide the characteristic ‘branding’ effect. These can be removed at the end of the cooking session, together with the radiants, fat collection tray and splashguard to facilitate cleaning.
There are four gas powered Lincat chargrills to choose from. The Silverlink 600 CG4 (450mm wide) and CG6 (600mm wide) chargrills incorporate independently controlled twin cooking areas, providing economic use of energy during quieter periods. The heavy-duty Opus 700 range includes the 20 kW OG7401 (700 mm wide) and the 900mm wide OG7402, which offers a 25kW output. All four can be operated by propane or natural gas, and are ideal for barbeque applications.
