OAK'D Handcrafted BBQ Delivers on Central Texas Barbecue (And So Much More)


Category: New Restaurants

If we had to identify just one way the pandemic has hit us all, we'd guess it's the warping of our sense of time.

Days and weeks run together, months lurch onward, and we find the holidays just around the corner.  Back in the spring, we heard of OAK'D Handcrafted BBQ, a planned barbecue restaurant coming to Dallas. The best-laid plans were often foiled by COVID-19, and OAK'D was no exception; the planned summer opening date kept sliding further down the calendar.

Combined with our lack of temporal awareness (do you even quarantine if you don't ask Alexa what day it is once a week?), we'd lost track of OAK'D, until news came that the restaurant would finally open the first week of November. The official first day was Nov. 6, and shortly thereafter, we grabbed our masks and headed over for a look.

 

 

 

This broiler gets its name from the "show" it creates in fine restaurants everywhere. Most chefs agree that food cooked over a live fire is unparalleled in flavor and when the broiler is in customer view, appetites (and check averages) soar!


The Wood Show is legendary for durability, ease of use, and its ability to easily tame the intense flame temperatures produced by hardwood fuels. Its unique Chef Cool© design keeps the heat inside the grill, resulting in a cooler kitchen and a grateful chef. Plus, fuel loading is easy with the front fuel loading door. A simple turn of the wheel positions the cooking grate closer to or farther from the fire.

Easy to Use

Fuel loading is easy with the front fuel above the top of the firebox body.

Adjustable cooking surface

A turn of the wheel adjusts the grill to position the food closer or farther from the fire for total control of the cooking rate. Because the chef can lower the grill at the end of a shift to utilize every last ember of wood or charcoal, fuel efficiency is maximized. There are fewer interruptions during busy periods to add or tend fuel.

Safe, cool operation

Our unique Chef Cool© design keeps the heat inside the grill resulting in a cooler kitchen and a grateful chef.

Large selection

Easy to clean

The firebox surfaces are smooth and an ash drop in the firebox floor facilitates ash transfer to the removable ash drawer. Heavy duty casters allow easy mobility.

Rugged

These units are built like tanks to take the day-to-day abuse in busy kitchens.

Options

Side and rear splashes, ash carts, wood carts, rakes, removable plate shelves, sauce pan cut-outs, and oversized casters are available.
