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 tradition of cooking only with a wood fire is foremost in the repertoire of many chefs. Because of this, J&R offers the Emilio's Special Combo. It is an ideal rotisserie/grill for all wood cooked entrees.
Emilio’s Special Combo combines a generously proportioned grill with an easy to use display rotisserie which can cook 16 chickens at a time or any variety of other menu items. The rear and side stainless walls capture and direct the heat onto the rotisserie for fast cooking. All of this is compactly packaged in a 48 inch by 42 inch footprint!
Even with a small space, this rotisserie will deliver a punch that only wood can give.

The Emilio’s Special Combo is an all solid fuel fired (wood and/or charcoal) grill and rotisserie combination that features a generously-sized front grill combined with a four to eight spit rotisserie, depending on the size you select. It is a great unit to use where space is limited. Like the Milano Arosti, it blends tremendous flexibility with floor space economy. Meats on the slowly turning rotisserie are imbued with the flavor and aroma of the wood or charcoal. When placed in customer view, this makes the rotisserie items on your menu irresistible. Our solid fuel units are renowned in the industry (and loved by chefs) for their high grill surface temperatures. The secret is the incredible hot, live fuel fire contained in the lower body. Our unique Chef Cool design keeps this heat inside the grill, where it belongs.
There are many options available on the Emilio. While the standard size is 48 inches wide by 42 inches deep, we can customize the size to fit your needs. You have your choice for the front upper finish and many customers choose a colorful ceramic tile front (at no extra cost) to complement their decor. Another popular option, if your floorplan will permit it, is to add rear loading doors for the rotisserie.
