As the purveyors of the finest braai, grilling and smoking equipment in South Africa, Firesmiths is proud to say that we’re launching something in the SA market that will blow your apron and braai tongs clean off, and long-lasting quality is at the heart.
If you’re in the market for a new braai, an upgrade or just want to invest in quality, then look no further than Portable Kitchen (PK) Grills. The brand made famous in the States for its hand-poured cast aluminium design and unique four-vent system is finally on our shores.
These grills have been satisfying customers since the 1950s when founder Hilton Meigs designed the grill as a ‘portable kitchen’ that he sold from the back of his car. Now, more than 60 years later, the simplicity of those early days is PK Grills’s greatest strength, with both the material and grill shape identical to Meigs’s design.
They continue to focus on what’s most important – not built-in thermometers, complicated grates and racks and trying to satisfy every colour preference under the sun. They focus on the fundamentals – fire and airflow.
They understand the struggles of having to use a makeshift fan to get your coals to crackle with that satisfying ember glow, or worse, blowing on them like your life (and rack of ribs) depends on it; they understand the struggles of leaching heat and not being able to reach an optimal temperature. PK Grills are designed with strategically placed vents for optimal airflow and are made from robust cast aluminium for superior quality, heat retention and rust resistance. Aluminium also conducts heat four times more efficiently than steel, leaving traditional braais out in the cold.
