I have a steak house that prides itself on grilling steaks over live hickory coals and we have recently expanded. The charcoal pit that we currently use is about 75 years old and works like a charm. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble recreating this in our new restaurants. My major dilemma is that the cooking grates that came with my last two grills (Aztec, Montague) have warped within 6 months of use (the 3/4-inch iron grates on my original charcoal pit will probably outlive me!). I've gone so far as to call the engineers that designed these grills, but my woes continue. If anyone out there knows of a grill that could withstand an open flame for 12 hour periods, 7 days a week I would be forever indebted.
