BBGrillCo’s Plancha is a flat top griddle and grill and fire pit all in one. It is a complete, wood-fired outdoor cooking solution designed for entertaining family and friends. It is designed to elevate your dining experience by including ingredients often missing in outdoor dining- the comfort of an open fire, an invitation to participate, and the bonus of tasty food. A wood-burning fire creates an ambiance second to none- think fire-pit with a purpose. 360-degree access to our free-standing units allows several people to use them at once. And our proprietary two-piece cooktop offers the heat control we often need but seldom get with other grills. Proteins and vegetables can be seared on the inner cooktop while breads and starches remain warm on the outer ring. From breakfast or
simply grilled cheese sandwiches to surf n turf and casseroles, we invite you
to play with fire.
The short answer is BBGrillCo Planchas are beautiful and practical. They are designed to elevate your cooking experience and make outdoor dining a truly social event. Like open concept kitchens that encourage conversation and involvement, our planchas are built to be the focal point of a party whether you are simply enjoying the fire or cooking for 12. They are also safer to use and create less smoke than single-wall designs. Our unique two-part fire bowl system also makes lighting the fire much easier.
All BBGrills are manufactured with pride in Tulsa, OK by a small team of highly experienced metal fabricators.
Griddles of all types are popular in the USA while wood-fired Planchas are popular in Europe and Latin America. We designed our planchas to be beautiful while addressing details that improved form and function. From the stainless-steel fire box and two-piece cooktop to our air flow system and ash dump, our planchas are
meant to deliver without sacrificing performance. The double-wall design
provides a safer cooking environment and is easy to light, the airflow
provides a cleaner burning fire and your BBGrillCo Plancha can serve as a fire
pit as well as a cooking surface.
We recommend starting your fire with charcoal, using a charcoal chimney or lighter fluid. Once the charcoal is burning, add your favorite smoking or grilling wood which is available from most hardware stores. Pecan, Cherry, Post Oak, Mesquite,
Maple all have unique flavor profiles and can enhance your fire and cooking experience. Like any other grill, avoid burning scrap wood and chemically treated lumber.

No. Your BBGrill is built to withstand outdoor weather year-round.
Pro-tip: Our optional stainless steel bistro top looks great and keeps debris and unwanted water out of the firebox, it also allows you to use the plancha as a table when not in use for cooking.

While our unique ash-dump system makes cleaning easier, deeper cleaning is occasionally needed. A garden hose and non-abrasive soap are usually all you need. Please remove the ash dump door before hosing out the firebox. Corten units can be hosed down and allowed to air dry. Powder-coated units can be cleaned with warm soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge or rag.
Much like cast iron and carbon steel cookware, we recommend cleaning and applying a thin coat of oil after use. If surface rust develops, it will be superficial and can be removed with a scouring pad or fine (180-240 grit) sandpaper and once again protected with a thin layer of cooking oil.
There is a slight chance that the weathering steel finish will leave a rust stain on the surface below it until the rust patina has fully set. The finish is pre-oxidized at our facility prior to shipping. The longer it is exposed to the weather, the tougher the finish becomes. If you are worried about staining, set the plancha base in an inexpensive aluminum pan to catch the rain runoff for a few months.
Not likely. Under normal use, the BBGrillCo Plancha Grill design allows for cooking oils to be consumed by the fire by allowing the oil to run into the fire box through the inner and outer rings. Avoid oiling the outer warming surface to keep the perimeter area free from staining.
Not really. With proper cleaning, your BBGrill is designed to last for generations.
