ISO Italian grill or grate in the GTA

itryalot Aug 12, 2013 10:25 AM

Family is coming to visit me and said they would pick up some things I needed. I am looking for an outdoor Italian grill (to use with wood fire) and an Italian cooking grate (not sure if that's what they are called). The grate is those kinds that old school Italians use with a propane tank to cook pasta outdoors at picnics or without the large pot to can tomatoes.

    Try a turkey deep fryer. I use them for tomatoes, crab boils, sweet corn and of course, turkeys. You can get them at Crappy Tire, Home Depot or a million other places.

      Yeah, they're sold out near me but I will get them to look near them. I tried; I am in a very small town.

      You could always try Ontario Gas BBQs.

        Also try Tap Phong.
        You can use a wok on them.

        not sure what area you are in but you could try bass pro shop ,princess auto, walmart, home hardware, home brewing supply stores etc

        If you do find what you are looking for make sure to get a unit that is one piece (meaning welded legs and body) not a unit that you have to bolt together since bolts can loosen, you dont want your pot tipping over while you are cooking. a good strong base, the kind you can jump up and down on without damaging it.

          I asked my parents, they said Nella should have them. Worth calling (re: burner for making sauce/etc). Also hardware shops along College.

            They have gone to Nella before so I'll have them check there or on College.
