Let’s make a contrast here. When you’re out of doors, people naturally gather around the fire, facing each other and connecting in a natural way. Now think about a BBQ. There’s no way to gather around the BBQ. Instead, cooking the food becomes a solitary experience with one or maybe two (one person cooking and the other standing there in the way). Yet, food is a universal means of joining together. There has to be a way that you can join the community of a fire and of cooking, and Burch Barrel has developed that way with their Portable Suspended Barbecue.
The Burch Barrel is essentially a barbecue and a fire pit that is suspended from a tripod. This suspended design allows for the barrel to stay balanced and vertical at all times, regardless of the setting. Whether you’re on rocky ground, a slanted surface, or a perfectly flat campsite, the Burch Barrel will stay stable.
The idea was inspired by the telescopic legs of a camera, so you can adjust accordingly. The adjustable legs also feature a movable grip that you can slide up and down to lift and lower the grill’s lid, keeping your hands safely away from hot surfaces. In addition to the movable lid, the coal bed can also be raised and lowered.
The result of the two movements means you can perfect the space between the heat and your food to properly manage the thermal energy and to control the smokiness with which the food is cooked. You can switch from searing to char-grilling to roasting with ease. The Burch Barrel also has a redesigned venting system that helps to move the air through the fire, stoking the flame and helping to prevent the buildup of debris and oils. And when you’re not cooking, the Burch Barrel easily serves as a fire pit, providing that opportunity to gather together and connect.
As far as a portable barbecue goes, the Burch Barrel excels at the opportunities that it can provide for you to master the art of smoking, cooking, and searing. Beyond that, its high-grade steel and aluminium components will provide years of connecting with friends over the comfort of a fire and the joys of good food.
