The Arteflame cooktop is solid steel. There are no grates so it is virtually maintenance free. The flat cooktop is also easy to clean. All residue can simply be scraped into the fire. Cooking oil is all the cook top needs to be ready for grilling. Some of the oil is absorbed into the cook top with each use. This turns the cooktop a deep color black and improves it with each use. The Arteflame’s all steel construction will provide years of virtually maintenance free enjoyment. Special steel is used so that The Arteflame develops a natural, attractive patina. The patina will develop differently on each Arteflame making each one unique. The Arteflame does not need to be covered. It can be left outside year round. Its artful design will be the center of attention in any outdoor setting.

Grill safely with these tips from Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio

Outdoor grilling is a favorite all-American activityOutdoor grilling on a deck is a favorite pastime for many families and neighborhood gatherings, but it poses potential hazards. While decks aren’t always well suited for charcoal and gas grill usage, awareness and careful adherence to several safe practices are great ways to make sure you and your family are staying safe during outdoor cooking events. For an even safer option, Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio offers the Big Green Egg as it is safer to use in ANY outdoor living space.

We want everyone to enjoy the benefits of safely grilling in their outdoor living space, so we’d like to share a few grilling safety tips that you should definitely follow when grilling with charcoal or gas on a wooden deck.

  • Stay with your grill while in use – vigilance is key
  • Place the grill away from siding, deck railings and out from under eaves and overhanging branches
  • Xenia, OH grill area detail with pergolaPeriodically remove grease or fat buildup
  • For charcoal grills use only proper starter fluid and store the can away from heat sources
  • Do not move hot grills
  • Dispose of charcoal properly, keeping ash containers outside and away from combustible construction
  • For charcoal grills, ensure that you shut the top and bottom vents to eliminate air flow when done grilling
  • For charcoal grills, check the ash pan for dangerous ashes
  • For gas grills check propane cylinder hoses for leaks before use
  • For additional deck protection, use a grill pad to protect your wood or composite deck surfaces from spills, stains and sparks

** In addition, make sure to periodically empty and replace grease cans and pans on your gas grill. For Big Green Egg owners it is important to periodically check the nuts and bolts for tightness and alignment. If you roll or move your EGG frequently, check the casters, Nest and Handler bolts more often to maintain proper performance and alignment.

Without taking preventative measures, using a grill on a wooden deck can lead to unwanted fires. Sparks might ignite wood decking boards or railings. Windy conditions can increase the danger from stray sparks. If you grill on a wooden deck, have a fire extinguisher handy and keep your eyes on the grill and surrounding deck area at all times. The pictures below are an example of what can happen when a grill is left unattended, or hot, on a backyard deck: These images are the result of a recent deck fire in the Cincinnati area we were asked to rebuild.

2015-08-24 12.01.012015-08-24 12.01.19In contrast to traditional gas and charcoal grills The Big Green Egg is safer to use in ANY outdoor living space. It’s design is based upon an ancient Asian style clay cooker called a “kamado” but modernized with cast iron, stainless steel and space age ceramics. This proprietary ceramic material provides state of the art heat retention technology. Additional features of the Big Green Egg include lighter fluid not required, hardwood lump charcoal – no chemicals for its heat source and no need for constant tending because the enclosed cooking area eliminates grease flare-ups.
