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.

 

 

 

The Milano Arosti Grille has the rough good looks of an Italian hand-built unit. It is a combination rotisserie and grill which features a wood-fired grill and a 4-spit rotisserie that is equipped with infrared burners. An optional gas grill is available.


The grill consists of ½ inch square bar or ½ inch round bar spaced on 7/8 inch centers providing a distinctive grill mark on veal chops, steaks, kabobs, and seafood. A fuel loading door and an ash drawer are standard.


A “planetary” motion drive system provides even cooking of the food. Each spit revolves individually while the entire rotisserie wheel revolves as well. It is cooked with infrared rays which beam down from gas generators mounted in the ceiling of the rotisserie, offering a beautiful, rosy glow as it revolves. The rotisserie is equipped with (4) angle spits designed for chickens and with (4) straight hex rods complete with (8) 3-tine end forks and (12) middle forks. A removable stainless steel drip pan is included.
