NuKe Delta - Fire it up!!

Recommended Posts

This is my new NuKe Delta Argentine style grill.  26" x 21" adjustable height main grate with a side Brasero (firebox). Here is the progression of the install. 













It came with a cover, ash shovel, coal rake and steel griddle that sits above the side Brasero (firebox). I also bought a porcelain coated CI pan for makeing fried provolone. 






To fire it up I have a bin of sticks from the yard for kindling and Post Oak sorted by size. 





I decided to fire the main area and the Brasero. I stacked the wood similar to what I do in the Wood Fired Oven. 





I fired the Brasero first immediately followed by the main area. I sit the MAPP torch down and let it go for 30 - 60 seconds. 







After a few minutes it's well underway. 






Up first was the fried provolone appetizer. Thick slice of provolone, black pepper (purple crack berries) and dried oregano with a drizzle of olive oil. Pulled some coals off to the side and cooked for 6 minutes. That was mighty tasty - Yum. An expensive little pan but it worked really well and is the perfect size. 









I guess we'll call these smash potatoes on the steel griddle. A flat iron steak. 







A nice md rare served with homemade chimichuri sauce. Mrs skreef really liked the chimichuri sauce. I slightly miss managed the fire in the end but still came out great. Awesome grill but a small learning curve for sure. Hope you enjoyed the ride.

Enjoyed it, shoot wish I was there but you did a fine job making us feel like we were Thanks.  I like more details on the fried provolone technique.

That small coated CI pan. 1/2" thick slice of provolone. Sprinkle with black pepper and oregano. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Cooked direct about 2" above hot coals for 6 minutes. Cool for a minute. Square cut it with a pizza cutter.

@ckreef Thanks this is on my menu for this week, we're on a staycation.


That small CI pan is 5 1/2" and a provolone slice 1/2" - 5/8" thick works. 


If you go bigger or smaller (with the CI pan) you would need to change the slice thickness accordingly.

Yup, more evidence, that you guys just clear and water a spot in the herb garden and another grill pops up. Great Cook and I enjoyed watching it come together. 


I can't seem to grow any herbs with my very brown thumb. Might as well grow some grills. B)



"Seriously Mrs skreef this is the last grill I'll ever want!!" - LOL
