SoundOff – Char Broilers


Char Broilers
July 2013

Since we are in the dead heat of summer, everyone is pulling out their grills. This month we are going to highlight char broilers for those who might choose eating out over cooking out. We carry over 50 different char broilers from a variety of manufacturers. When purchasing a char broiler, there are a lot of different options that need to be taken into consideration.

Char Broiler

There are different heat options, char-rock, and radiant heat. Products will be heated evenly with radiant heat versus char-rock, which will provide more flavor, but has a higher chance of a flare-up. Char broilers can be placed directly on equipment stands or have legs added to them.
Here are some handy tips for char broiling:
1. Use the appropriate grate for the menu item.
2. Season the grates before the first use by preheating them to open the pores and brushing them with oil.
3. Pre-heat the grates before cooking to help reduce sticking.
4. Dip food in seasoned oil before grilling to reduce sticking and enhance flavor.
