Default Re: Harro's parrilla (bbq and box oven) build in Brisbane, Aust

Hola Guillermo,

Thanks for bumping this thread, I haven't visited it in a while! The parrilla still isn't 100% finished (just the outside stone cladding to go), but I have been able to cook a few asados on it. Here's a couple of pics.

I brought the grill back with me from Argentina as we visit the wife's family there every year or so. Bit difficult on the plane but I don't think anyone could make one like this here in Australia without costing an arm and a leg.

Cheers.

Hola,

Long time since I have visited this site / thread, lucky for the email notification!

I have found a few different butchers around town for various different cuts.

For vacio, matambre, asado, morcilla and sometimes mojella - rock-n-roll butcher at greenslopes - since we started going there they now know all the argentinean cuts by name and will cut to your liking.

chinchulines - you have to go to the asian butcher at Sunnybank, the big one next to the fruit shop, can't remember the name right now but its the only place in Brisbane we've found to sell them, they call them fatty runners.

Super butcher at eagle farm sells mojella but from lamb, frozen. and morcilla, infact quite a few butchers sell the morcilla, its all the same brand. At times they also sell picana (rump cap) on special, or if you're lucky will cut off the rump cap from a whole rump.

Chorizo can be bought from Coles, or Pennisi imported foods in Woolloongabba (they also sell provolone cheese, which you can sometimes get from Coles too).

For anyone interested, I'll attach a few more pics of the finished parrilla. Very happy with the result, gets lot of attention and comments.

Hey awesome.

How does it work exactly do you raise the meat into the cavity, or just up and down a little with the embers underneath. What do you use the oven on the side for?

That is exceptional! I have not seen anything like it and the stonework is excellent. Inspirational.

Thanks Greenman, a lot of work went into those stones!!

Thanks Brendan,

The meat stays on the grill (as shown on last pic), which can be raised or lowered by a handle on the right hand side (not shown). Hot coals are spread underneath, which are transferred from the firebox area to the left, and the whole cooking area heats up nicely for slow-grilling meat.

The little oven is heated by the fire below, but it takes a while to heat up and doesn't get too hot as the slab of firebrick is 50mm thick, and the door doesn't quite seal 100%. I usually just use it as a warming oven, would need some mods if it were to be used for anything requiring higher temps. Would be nice to roast vegies in there, but it only gets up to around 100deg C , I could get it up by putting coals in there too but its not usually the focus. That part was a bit of an experiment anyway!
