Now that the spring sunshine has arrived, it’s a great time to start considering outdoor cooking options for the summer ahead.
Outdoor cooking equipment can transform your summer entertaining options as well as your garden and many people discover it opens a new door to a world of perfecting smoking and grilling techniques.
Morsø have a huge range of outdoor cooking options from barbecue grills to pizza ovens and gas BBQs all of which suit different needs. In this post we give you a rundown of the best Danish designed BBQ and outdoor ovens.
(1) Versatile outdoor pizza oven – Forno Outdoor Oven
It’s the idea of cooking pizzas that usually draws people to the Forno Outdoor Oven, but it’s the versatility of these amazing wood fired cast iron ovens that makes them stay. The built-in pizza stones are perfect for cooking crisp pizzas bases on directly, but you can also use the Tuscan Grill to cook meat or fish on. Cast iron casserole dishes can be used in the oven for long slow juicy dishes, or you can transform the Forno into a smoker. Simply add a door and a flue cap and really bring out the flavours of your cooking.
Though they aren’t a cheap purchase, the cast iron construction means these ovens can be left outside and will last for years. They can also easily be touched up once a season to quickly repair any small marks on the exterior and ensure the Forno looks like new year after year.
(2) The design that’s lasted for 50 years – Grill ’71 Table
If you want a charcoal bbq grill that has really stood the test of time you can’t go far wrong with the tabletop Morsø Grill ’71 cast iron barbecue. Originally designed by the Danish manufacturers in 1971 it has been in production ever since and in two years will celebrate its 50th birthday.
It’s easy to see why this grill has been so successful. It’s made from cast iron which means it is long lasting, won’t rust and if needed, can easily be touched up with a little sandpaper and spray paint. The table top design means its suitable for smaller families and couples and the simple Scandinavian lines makes it a design classic which will never go out of fashion.
(3) Speedy BBQ grills – Forno Gas BBQ Grill
For those who like their grilled steaks and burgers fast, the Morsø Forno Gas is the perfect option. It comes to temperature in just 10 seconds, allowing you to start barbecuing almost instantly. Echoing the iconic design of the wood fired Forno, this gas barbecue can be placed on an outdoor table or dedicated outdoor cooking surface.
The outer shell is made from moulded aluminium and the grilling grid is solid cast iron. The Forno Gas grill is easy to clean and easy to cook on.
Morsø will also be introducing two new sizes of the Forno Gas BBQ Grill this spring. The Morsø Forno Piccolo Grill is for smaller households and the Grande Grill is a larger capacity gas BBQ.
(4) The fire pit BBQ – Ignis Fire Pit
If you aren’t sure you really need an outdoor oven or bbq, but just want a fire pit that you can grill the occasional burger on, the Morsø Ignis is for you. It’s made of enamelled cast iron, so it can stand outside all year round and if you use it and care for it properly, it will never rust
Its simple functional design is inspired by traditional Nordic cooking methods and you can use it simply either to toast food over the flames on a skewer or with the addition of the Ignis grill you can barbecue over wood or charcoal. Its compact size means you can stick it in the back of the car and take it on trips to the beach or away camping.
(5) The small space outdoor oven with Scandi legs – Grill Forno II
If you like the idea of the Morsø Forno outdoor oven, but you haven’t got the outside space for one, or you only intend to cook for small numbers, it’s hard not to fall in love with the shapely lines of the Grill Forno II. The Grill Forno is a curved cast iron oven perched on top of slim wooden Scandi style legs. We have one in the main area of our West Sussex showroom and find new customers are often drawn towards it as it’s so visually appealing.
You can cook on charcoal or wood and the integrated barbecue grill is perfect for cooking meat, fish or vegetables. If you add the Vetro Pizza Plate you can cook delicious homemade pizzas inside the oven. Like the Forno Outdoor Oven, you can also use it as a smoking chamber.
