Tradition, whether it happens to be hardwood smoked barbeque or Brazilian Churrasco grilling, is a part of the rich history of food preparation. One of the oldest and most popular traditions is Japanese Robata Grilling. This cooking style has been perfected over centuries and J&R has created a new chef-friendly grill to bring this venerable cooking style to the modern commercial kitchen.
Robatayaki refers to restaurants in which seafood and vegetables are cooked over an open charcoal grill. In the days of the Samurai, an open fireplace, or “robata,” was found in the middle of a Japanese house. This was the center of activity for cooking, eating, socializing, and (in the winter) simply keeping warm.
In today's robatayaki restaurants, grilling is done over high quality charcoal on the Robata Grill. One variety of charcoal is made from holm oak, a very hard wood used in kilns in the southern Kishu area of Japan. This charcoal, called Kishu binchotan, is prized for its measured heat and long, slow burn during which it emits far-infrared rays, infusing broiled foods with unmatched flavor. Although our Robata certainly works well with this traditional fuel, we have built it with adjustable grill heights to respond to oak charcoal or the wild heat trapped in the high quality mesquite charcoal of the American Southwest.
Three totally separate grilling zones give the chef enormous flexibility. Three built-in saucepans. Fuel loading is easy with the front fuel-loading door for the large zone and easily removable grill grates in the smaller zones.
Each grilling zone offers three easily adjustable grilling heights.
Our unique Chef Cool design keeps the heat inside the grill resulting in a cooler kitchen and a grateful chef.
The firebox surfaces are smooth and an ash drop in the firebox floor of each zone facilitates ash transfer to the removable ash drawers. Heavy-duty casters allow easy mobility for cleaning.
The chef can regulate the combustion air to the large zone to help control the burn rate.
These units are built like tanks to take the day-to-day abuse in busy kitchens.
