WARMINSTER, Pa., June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BBQ Guru, the company that invented the first technology of its kind to control cooking temperatures for charcoal or wood-burning cookers, today announced the release of its cooker, The Onyx Oven. This easy-to-use charcoal oven is extremely fuel efficient, with the ability to run for over 20 hours on seven pounds of charcoal. The Onyx Oven is the first cooker to come with a custom made DigiQ temperature control, making it the most accurate and reliable on the market.
"The engineering and cooking teams at The BBQ Guru have been working hard on the design and function of the new Onyx Oven," said Director of Marketing, Bob Trudnak. "We wanted a cooker that was extremely efficient and rugged, yet lightweight and versatile. After building many prototypes and cooking on them week after week at BBQ competitions around the country, we are ready to release the Onyx Oven. No other cooker available on the market today offers the quality of this design with the accuracy that comes with a DigiQ temperature control. This oven makes great BBQ every time."
The 90 lb. Onyx Oven holds four 13"x22" shelves with an ideal capacity for backyard BBQ enthusiasts and competition BBQers alike. Any outdoor cook can use the Onyx Oven for:
- Jerky drying
- Cold smoking cheese, fish, etc.
- Slow cooked barbeque (pulled pork, brisket, ribs, etc.)
- Baking breads
- Baking casseroles, beans, stews and desserts
- Roasting meats and vegetables
- Grilling steaks, burgers, brats and more
The Onyx Oven's insulated, double wall construction makes it very fuel efficient, allowing for long burn times with very low charcoal consumption. The stainless steel catering pan can be used as a removable water/drip pan. This gives the Onyx Oven the ability to be used as a water smoker, a dry smoker, a grill or even a warming oven. The Onyx Oven is currently available on the company's website, packaged with a DigiQ control system for $1175. Customers that already own a control can purchase it for $995.
