The ‘Somerset Grill Company’ was started by brothers Ben and Tom, with the simple aim of designing and building high-quality, affordable Asado style grills and in the process converting people to the joys of Argentinian live-fire cooking.
The idea for ‘The Somerset Grill Company’ came about during Ben’s 10 years as a Navigation Officer in the British Merchant Navy. During his time onboard the 126m Motor Yacht Octopus, he learnt about live fire cooking in the shape of a custom-made Asado style Grill, rumoured to have cost around $30,000. Tasting the food from this grill blew Ben’s mind and after converting his brother Tom, an engineer, to the joys of ‘Asado’ cooking, the idea of ‘The Somerset Grill Company’ was born.
They set out to design an Asado grill that was in reach of all barbequers and would fit perfectly in anyone’s garden, providing a variety of live-fire cooking methods. Three prototypes and many designs later, ‘The Glastonbury Asado Grill’ was born.
