Features and Benefits Guide

Sound reasons to invest in a BeefEater® Barbecue

 

Barbecue Frame:

Fully Welded Barbecue Frame

All BeefEater Barbecue frames are fully welded and not bolted together or even spot-welded like some appliances. Full welding means a more rigid frame and a longer lasting body that won’t fall apart. A fully welded frame won’t leak, which means barbecuing without the mess.

The front, side and rear frame panels of the barbecue frame are fabricated which includes bending and folding to ensure superior strength. The panels are then placed in welding jigs to ensure that each panel is correctly aligned with each other. The panels are then welded together using robotic welders. Robotic welders ensure an accurate and consistent weld every time.

 

Stainless Steel Barbecue Frame

We use a heavy gauge '304' grade Stainless Steel to build all of our Signature Stainless Steel barbecue frames. 304 Grade is the preferred grade to use for stainless steel cooking appliances. Stainless steel is well known for its corrosion resistant properties and good looks. Stainless Steel is a very hygienic material and is easy to clean.

Brushed finish stainless steel – looks good and is easy to maintain.

 

Porcelain Enamel Body

Porcelain enamel is one of the toughest and most durable appliance coatings available in the world. It is essentially glass bonded onto steel, just like in your kitchen oven. To apply porcelain enamel to our roasting hood frames: first we use a special grade of low carbon steel known as CV2S1. This steel has special qualities highly suitable for the application of porcelain enamel under extreme heat. The metal is thoroughly cleaned in preparation for the application of the base enamel coating. The cleaning process completely strips the metal clean to ensure superior adhesion of the enamel. Then we create a mixture of milled silica, along with special clay derivatives and oxides (color pigments) and water to form a sprayable solution. The mixture is then applied to the steel by highly skilled staff using spray guns. The coating is then heated and allowed to dry until all moisture has evaporated. The components are then placed in a furnace where temperatures reach a massive 860º C. It is here at this high temperature, where the porcelain enamel mixture and the steel are bonded together with the porcelain enamel forming a permanent glass coating over the steel.

Porcelain enamel is hygienic because it is a non-porous surface so there are no places for bacteria to hide. This non-porous quality also means that porcelain enamel is very easy to clean and maintain.

Porcelain enamel will not scorch, burn or discolor so your investment always will look good.

Porcelain enamel is scratch resistant, unlike paint, so it maintains its lustrous look year after year.

 

 

Core Features:

RF Technology – Rust Free Barbecuing

No more rust, mess or fuss with BeefEater’s ‘RF Technology’ cooking system. ‘RF Technology’ uses vitreous (porcelain) enamel, one of the toughest and most durable appliance coatings available in the world.

Hygienic and Easy to Clean -- Porcelain enamel is hygienic and easy to clean because it is a non-porous surface so there are no places for bacteria to hide. This non-porous quality also means that porcelain enamel is very easy to clean and maintain. Porcelain enamel will not scorch, burn or discolor so, with a little maintenance, your investment always will look good.
 

Quartz Start Technology

Our Quartz Start pilot ignition technology is designed to make starting easy and simple. The Quartz Start ignition system is built into the gas control of every burner, it’s not a separate component. To start the barbecue simply depress and turn the control knob to ‘start’, it’s that simple. Quartz Start Technology is safer and easier to use than other cumbersome push button systems and with Quartz Start Technology there are no batteries to replace, ever!

The Quartz Start ignition system cleverly conceals critical components away from the burners and shields them from the harsh environment of the barbecue burn chamber. As a result, barbecue ignition components last longer, saving you time, money and hassle.

Titanium coated ignition pins last longer and give a cleaner more positive spark – very important for hassle free starting every time.

 

Heavy Duty Cast Iron Plates & Grates

Cast iron has long been recognized as a superior cooking surface for outdoor cooking appliances. All BeefEater Signature barbecues come standard with our very own Heavy Duty Cast iron plates and grates.

BeefEater Cast Iron is thick and heavy so it will last longer and perform better.

We don’t use inferior quality cast iron for our burners or cooking surfaces. We don’t use thin castings that are likely to crack or warp when you use them. Some of our competitors even use lightweight thin gauge steel for their cooking surfaces. Before leaving the factory, each one of our cast iron plates and grills are checked to ensure that they sit level on the barbecue frame so that there is no annoying rocking of the cooking surfaces as you would expect with cheaper appliances.

Cast Iron is easy to use and with a little care, easy to maintain. If cared for correctly cast iron cooking surfaces will reward you with long life.

Our Cast Iron Plate is designed with dual cooking surfaces. The plate can used with the smooth flat side up which is great for cooking all sorts of foods like eggs & bacon, flap jacks or onions. Or use the ribbed side up which is great for searing steaks, sausages, chicken etc.

Optional Stainless Steel Griddles & Grates

Stainless Steel is the ultimate in material for high heat cooking applications. It is easy to use and with a little care, easy to maintain. If cared for correctly stainless steel cooking surfaces will reward you with long life.

Our stainless steel plate is designed with a smooth surface, which is great for cooking all sorts of foods like eggs & bacon, flap jacks or onions. Our stainless steel grates are available in 3 or 4 burner sizes.

BeefEater stainless steel grates are made 10mm thick stainless steel rod. Which is easy to clean and maintain.

 

Solid, High Output Cast Iron Rail Burners

Some of our competitors’ appliances might look good on the surface but when it comes to ‘under the hood’ performance, that’s where the race ends. BeefEater barbecues have high power burners that deliver serious cooking grunt. Compare our ‘per burner’ MJ outputs with that of our competitors and you will see why serious outdoor chefs choose BeefEater barbecues. All BeefEater barbecues come standard with solid Cast Iron rail burners that ensure fast start up and good heat distribution. Cast Iron Burners last longer than fabricated metal burners which saves you money in the long term.

  • 3 Burner Output 57MJ (54,000 BTU) per hour
  • 4 Burner Output 76MJ (72,000 BTU) per hour
  • 5 Burner Output 95MJ (90,000 BTU) per hour

Choice of Cast Stainless Steel Barbecue Burners Also Available

  • 4 Burner Output 76MJ (72,000 BTU) per hour
  • 5 Burner Output 95MJ (90,000 BTU) per hour

 

Stainless Steel Vaporizer Grid System

The BeefEater Vaporizer Grid System is designed to vaporize juices immediately as they fall though the grill. This vaporizing action helps to give the meat that real barbecue flavour without the need for messy volcanic rock. Flare ups are reduced and there is no messy rock falling into the grease management tray.

 

Stainless Steel Heat Reflectors

BeefEater’s unique heat reflector system reduces heat loss below the burners by directing heat from the burners, upwards to the cooking surfaces. This highly efficient system also increases fuel economy so it takes less gas to cook with. More heat at the cooking surface means faster and more economical barbecuing.

 

 

Optional Side Burner

BeefEater side burners are available in either trolley mounted or In-Built models. The Trolley mounted models are available in two finishes: 304 grade stainless steel or rich porcelain enamel. The In-built model is available in 304 grade stainless steel.

The side burner will add to your enjoyment and give you greater cooking versatility. The generous 12MJ output is designed to heat up fast which means the side burner is great for cooking sauces, soups and boiling or steaming vegetables.

The side burner comes complete with a removable cast iron pot trivet and removable burner assembly for easy cleaning and maintenance. All of our BeefEater side burners come complete with a stainless steel lid that folds back when the appliance is being used. We also use a heavy duty braided stainless steel gas hoses and brass fittings on all of our BeefEater side burners.

Stainless Steel Grease System

Our stainless steel grease management system is standard on all BeefEater Signature Barbecues. The large tray is designed to catch any remaining grease or solid matter that falls through the grill. The grease tray slides out of the appliance completely so it is easy to clean. The BeefEater grease management system ensures that there is no mess or hassle.

 

Precision Flame Control

You can feel the precision of our gas controls from the very first time you light up your BeefEater barbecue. Our precision engineered gas controls are built to the same exacting standards as the components used in fine kitchen appliances. These high precision valves are built to last and their precision gives you complete control over the flame. Precise control means a wider variety of food that can be cooked on a barbecue. More versatility means more barbecuing enjoyment.

 

Ergonomically Designed – Angled Fascia Panel

The control panel on the BeefEater Signature BBQs is inclined at 45º for better visibility and ease of use. The striking 'black on stainless' graphics are easy to read making operation simple and straightforward.

 

Ergonomically Designed – Gas Control knobs

The valve control knobs on the BeefEater Signature BBQs are designed to be easy to operate. Each knob is constructed from phenolic, which is cool to touch when the appliance is operating. The valve control knobs are large for easy, positive control.

 

Titanium-Coated Ignition Pin

We coat the ignition pin with a fine layer of extremely hard but ultra light Titanium, which protects the ignition pin which means it lasts longer and gives a cleaner, more positive spark – every time. A clean positive spark is very important for hassle free starting.

Roasting Hoods

The BeefEater roasting hoods are designed to complement any BeefEater Barbecue. All hoods feature the unique BeefEater rotating space saving design, with strategic ventilation and over-lift door to allow more work area when open. Each roasting hood incorporates a removable warming rack and built in stainless steel temperature thermometer.

The roasting hood may be easily removed for direct cooking situations where a substantial amount of food is being cooked on the barbecue, or greater access to both sides of the barbecue is required. It also facilitates ease of cleaning.

Available in stainless steel (with and without tempered glass viewing panel) and black porcelain enamel.

 

Innovative Space Efficient Hood Design

Open unlike rear hinged style hoods that when opened, take up excessive space behind the barbecue, the BeefEater Roasting hood is designed to take up minimal space. This is achieved by having the top of the hood pivot on a centrally located bearing that is fitted to each side of the roasting hood base.

Completely Removable Hood

The BeefEater Roasting hood is designed to be easily removed from the barbecue for cleaning and maintenance. The roasting hood can also be secured to the barbecue using the screw kit provided.

All-Weather Stainless Steel Handle

All BeefEater roasting hoods come standard with a stainless steel handle that will not deteriorate like timber or plastic handles will. The special design of the hood handle ensures that it remains safe to touch even when the hood is hot.

 

Hood Thermometer

Each BeefEater roasting hood comes complete with a temperature thermometer that ensures accurate temperature monitoring while cooking.

Unlike some barbecue hood temperature gauges, the BeefEater hood thermometer is carefully calibrated for use with all BeefEater roasting hoods.

The thermometer has a graduated temperature / color bar that makes monitoring of the hood temperature quick, easy and simple.

Temperatures are indicated in both °Celsius and °Fahrenheit.

 

Inbuilt Removable Warming Rack

We include a rear mounted warming rack inside the roasting hood. The warming rack is great for keeping food warm or for roasting vegetables like corn and potatoes. The warming rack is designed to be easily removed for cleaning and is totally washable.

Unit comes complete with adjustable, counter weight.

Heavy Gauge Steel Rotisserie Shaft & Prongs

The rotisserie set comes complete with two heavy duty adjustable rotisserie prongs. Additional prong sets are also available.

The rotisserie also comes complete with an adjustable counter balance. The counter balance is designed to balance the weight of the food mass on the rotisserie shaft giving a smooth rotation while cooking.

Rotisserie can be used without removing the griddles and grates.

With some barbecues you need to remove the cooking grills before you can cook even the smallest of roasts on the rotisserie. With a BeefEater, the grates and griddles do not need to be removed as our generous roasting area allows you to do all sorts of roasts that would not be possible with other appliances.

We coat the galvanized steel frames of our metal trolleys with a layer of highly durable (powder coat) to not only enhance the look but to further protect the metal as well. The powder coat finish is applied at the factory in a highly specialized process. This process starts with the metal components being sent through a special spray booth where the components and the paint particles are electrically charged. This makes the paint particles adhere to the steel. The finished components are then heated ensuring that the paint is baked onto the steel.
