Allumage_1Use of various fuels

Besides charcoal, other fuels can be used in the barbecue Verticook®, such as small tree branches or logs provided that they are small enough to enter easily in the firebox. Their calorific content should be high enough (coco nut briquettesare not convenient for example).

Flames that could appear in the firebox are not a problem since the fumes evacuate upwardly and vertically. Neither the flames nor the smoke they create will come in contact with the food.  Thus, there is no need to use high quality charcoal which is usually expensive.

The barbecue Verticook® is beneficial for the environment.

  • Complaints from your neighbours for the thick smoke (containing PAH) and invasive smell created by the combustion of fat falling on incandescent embers will vanish for ever.
  • Consumption of charcoal is minimized thanks to the narrow fire box and the possibility to organize the cooking phase by setting the fire to a slow burning mode.
