Fire Pit Chefs


One rig to rule them all...

The Fire Pit is the ultimate playground for flame-licking chefs.

Bigger, better and even more bad ass than last year…this set-up is literally twice as big, featuring hanging fames, infiernillos, asado crosses, planchas, run-of-the-mill grills and a butcher’s block.

What can’t it do? There are no limits for this mother of all BBQs!
