A coastal hotel in Wales is hoping its investment in a Mibrasa charcoal oven for a new ‘beachside barbeque’ concept will bolster foodservice revenues this summer.
Saundersfoot-based St Brides Spa Hotel has installed the solid fuel oven in its eatery, The Beachside Barbecue, after owner Andrew Evans went in search of the perfect cooking platform for the site’s refurbished restaurant.
He introduced the Mibrasa HMB AB SB 75 after becoming convinced that it would “perform day in day out and produce the high volumes required during peak season”.
Mr Evans commented: ‘”The build quality, capacity and versatility of the Mibrasa was what made it stand out from the crowd. It has performed superbly from day one and continues to add the depth of flavour we desired when we started the project.”
The menu features a variety of different dishes from brisket and ribs, chicken, fresh fish and steak that are charcoal grilled from the Mibrasa oven.
The grill comprises a fully enclosed stainless steel cupboard, an HMB 75 sized oven and a versatile heating rack fitted to the top.
The oven cooks at temperatures between 200°C and 400°C, locking in and enhancing the natural flavours of the produce used by the restaurant.
