OutdoorChef Ascona 570 G Barbecue
Characterized by high quality workmanship and innovative product technology, the OutdoorChef grill range is designed for easy outdoor cooking with ease. The Ascona 570 G gas barbecue features a 57cm diameter enamelled kettle bowl with hinged lid finished to the highest standards offering a 57cm diameter cooking area. Fitted with an ergonomic steel handle with an FSC wood grip the lid can be opened and shut safely without the need for mitts. The lid is also fitted with a thermometer so you can be in full control of your cooking temperatures for perfect results.
Designed with two separate stainless gas burners which are mounted central at the bottom of the cooking bowl and allow greater heat control and cooking at a lower heat. The burners are easily lit by a push button electronic ignition that is mounted next to the gas burner control knobs on the control panel. There are also some very useful cooking instructions printed onto the control panel advising you what funnel position and heat setting to use for certain foods. The patented funnel system inside the kettle eliminates flare-ups which protects the food from burning and distributes heat evenly to create a 'no burn' cooking system. Fats and juices from foods being grilled land on the funnels and evaporates to give that much loved BBQ flavour. Any juices which do not evaporate will run along the porcelain enamelled funnel into the collecting tray underneath for quick and easy cleaning.
The cooking bowl is mounted on a robust, epoxy coated tubular frame which is complemented by a small side shelf and larger lower shelf both made from FSC wood, most useful for storing your ingredients and condiments. 2 large wheels are fitted for easy movement around the garden. A 4 tool hanger is also provided to keep cooking utensils close when BBQing.
Indirect Grilling and Baking
For indirect barbecuing and roasting, the upper funnel is placed inside the kettle with the large opening pointing upwards. The heat from the gas burner rises up along the sides of the kettle, distributing an even, indirect heat from all sides. With the lid on, there's no need to turn the food at all throughout the cooking process.
Direct Cooking and Roasting
For grilling at very high temperatures or with the cast-iron griddle, the upper funnel is placed in the kettle with the small opening at the top. This creates high, concentrated heat in the middle of the cooking grid or griddle. The kettle lid is not absolutely necessary for this method of cooking.
