Viking cooks up a deal with Emeril Lagasse
RIDGELAND, Miss. — Viking Culinary Group announced that it has introduced a new line of branded outdoor grills from celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse.
Products in the Emeril grill line include:
The Emeril Charcoal Grill, constructed of porcelain-enameled heavy-gauge steel, features four sturdy legs instead of three, ensuring stability and safety. The hinged lid lifts and stays open and an integrated numerical thermometer displays approximate grill temperatures from 0 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The hinged grate provides easy and neat access to the charcoal, allowing the user to arrange briquettes for optimum heat placement. Other features include a more-than-ample 424 sq. inches of cooking surface, a sturdy storage shelf and a large-capacity, easily removable ash collector.
The Emeril Gas Grill, built from rugged stainless steel and heavy-duty cast aluminum components, is designed to withstand the elements and provide years of grilling enjoyment. Four powerful burners provide up to 48,000 BTUs of searing heat, evenly distributed over 589 sq. inches of cooking surface, dwarfing the competition. Seven stainless steel flavor generator plates catch drippings to create more smoke and smokier flavor, and also channel grease neatly into the removable drip tray for easier cleanup. Convenient extras like condiment and paper towel storage, accessory tool hooks, and locking rubber wheels combine to take backyard performance to the next level.
The Emeril Bam! B-Q, fully constructed of heavy duty stainless steel, uses indirect heat from an upper and lower charcoal ring to create a convection current that circulates within the cooking cylinder. This current causes meat to cook quickly and evenly within the cylinder. The unit comes with three cooking grates, which create 398 sq. inches of cooking surface; a rib hanger, which accommodates 6 racks of ribs; a poultry stand, which can hold a 24 lb. turkey; and a drip pan for easier cleanup.
"I have known Fred Carl and the folks at the Viking Culinary Group for a very long time and we've always shared a commitment to quality and passion for grilling," said Lagasse. "The design of these grills was something I was involved with every step of the way. These babies offer a grilling experience like you've never had before."
