The Engel Fire – the ultimate barbecue cooking experience

Everyone loves a barbecue, and as a nation who love their outdoor cooking, Kiwi standards are set pretty high. That’s why we have created the perfect barbecue for the ultimate cooking experience.


One fire to rule them all

The Engel Fire was born out of frustration.

There are too many outdoor cooking and heating devices available, with each of them responsible for different things.

If you want a range of cooking styles, for example – BBQ for grilling, pizza oven for pizza, smoker for smoking, and brazier for warmth - then you need separate equipment for each one.  There doesn’t appear to be anything available in the marketplace that could do all of these functionalities to any decent level.

That is until now.

Wanting it all – and getting it

We wanted a barbecue that did it all and looked great while doing it.

We wanted a barbecue we could cook a couple of rotisserie chickens on, while at the same time have some steaks, burgers and chops on the go, with the roast vegetables being cooked in the juices at the same time. 

We wanted to be able to cook 4 pizzas at once instead of cooking them individually, and to have a nice warming tray to keep things hot until ready to serve.

We wanted to grill, bake, fry and smoke, all at the same time. And after the meal, we wanted a roaring fire we could all sit in front of, enjoying conversation with a glass of wine or a cool beer.

We wanted the impossible, something that didn’t exist, so the only thing left to do was build it ourselves.


If you’re going to do something, do it right

Carl is an engineer, and engineers solve problems. This problem got him thinking that there had to be a way to integrate all these features into one, and so after a lot of designing, trial and error, he made the ‘Engel Fire’ dream into a reality.    

The Engel fire gives you the choice of grilling, baking, rotisserie, cooking pizza and smoking all within the one fire.

Designed by an engineer and built to last, the Engel fire is made from stainless steel and brass, giving the buyer peace of mind that this high-end barbecue is not going to rust out within a year of purchase like some store-bought, made-in-China equipment.

This is a high-quality fire that is going to bring delicious food and outdoor family enjoyment for years to come.


Make it your own

The icing on the cake of an Engel Fire is the personalisation. You can have your own individual name cut into the fire basket, whether it be your family name, your property name or a name you’re fondly known by. This simple touch brings it all together, making this remarkable barbecue yours and yours alone.
