Ñuke Puma- Santa Maria Grill
Hand-made by local artisans in Argentina, the Ñuke Puma features a heavy-duty brazier-style fire starter basket where real wood or natural lump charcoal is burnt to hot embers before they are slid onto heat refractory bricks under the grill. A quintessential Santa Maria-style control wheel raises or lowers the grill grate allowing asadors to cook from 4” to 23” from the coals. The distance from the coals controls the cooking temperature, allowing for high-heat searing of thinner cut steaks or vegetables or low-and-slow cooking of thicker roasts or racks of ribs. The Puma is also outfitted with traditional V-shaped grill grates to channel drippings away from the fire to avoid flare-ups. Made from a combination of high-grade stainless and heavy-gauge steel, the Puma is both extremely durable and an attractive centerpiece for any outdoor kitchen. The Puma comes with a cast iron plancha to overlay the brazier for flat-top cooking, a wheeled-cart featuring accessory hooks, as well as a fire poker and shovel for managing the coals and easy ash clean up.
