The best choice for barbecuing and smoking Convotherm 4 easyTouch March 15, 2017

The authentic taste and aroma of barbecued and smoked food:
That’s what you get from the optional “ConvoGrill” BBQ feature and the optional “ConvoSmoke” food-smoking feature of the Convotherm 4 easyTouch combi steamer*.

The proof is in the eating – get creative and give your food a unique taste with the endless possibilities of smoking. A wide variety of meals can be prepared to a consistently high standard: steaks, spare ribs, chicken wings, barbecued or smoked salmon and even vegetarian options such as cheese, butter or spices can all be cooked. Always with that unforgettable taste to meet the demands of your guests!
