The Skinny:
  • Abundant 547 square inches of height-adjustable cooking space
  • Argentinian cooking style: move around the embers, not the food
  • Excellent heat retention and dispersal through refractory bricks
  • Perfect for the hands-on griller eager to feel completely in control
  • Includes rain cover, fire poker, and coal shovel

Do you love playing with fire? Then the Ñuke Delta is the perfect grill for you.

Necessity is so often the mother of invention, and the parilla (“pah-REE-ja”) is no exception. Think back to the 18th century, to the downward tip of South America. Famous throughout Uruguay, Paraguay, Brazil, and their Argentinian homelands were the gauchos — horse-mounted cattlemen not unlike American cowboys. Rustling cattle across South America is hungry work; the gauchos avoided eating too much of the merchandise by using every cut of their beef. To make the tough cuts tender, did they have large pots and endless water? No. But they had wood, and plenty of open space. Thus, the parilla was born: a simple, versatile cooking surface little more than a metal grill grate over a heat source of embers.

That’s exactly what makes this grill shine. Since Argentinian cuisine and grill designs are all about wood-fire cooking, the Ñuke Delta focuses on that experience with excellent results. From fuel stash to powered ash, you build a bed of embers — and this grill hands you the literal lever to the fire. Vent control and wireless apps are for other BBQ experiences; this one is about merging rustic satisfaction with modern sensibility. If a traditional parilla was simply an iron grate over a few bricks, why not raise or lower that grate to switch heat intensities? So long as the flames wind up under the grate, why not simply load your fuel in a firebox at the side and reposition the embers with an ash tool? With the Delta, you get direct coal access and maneuverability and a whole lot of fun.


The Delta hits high marks for solid construction and convenient design choices.
  • Built with 265 lbs of medium-gauge painted steel, the Ñuke Delta stands 37 inches tall (or, a little higher than counter-height) on heavy-duty casters made for maneuverability. Refractory bricks measuring 8 ¾ inches by 4 ½ inches (⅝ inches thick) line the entire cooking chamber, which is partly occupied by an 8-inch by 15-inch ribbed firebox. The ribbed firebox holds enough wood splits to create a full cook's worth of embers or detaches easily if you prefer to use charcoal.

    Of course, the real star here is the height adjustment lever. Parked on the left-hand side, the lever shifts between 5 locked positions; starting at roughly 3 ¾ inches above the firepit floor, the grill grates peak at 7 inches. While it’s easy to underestimate that range, this is a grill designed to excel at everything heat. In such a refractory environment, even a single inch can make a tide of difference.

  • throwing split wood onto the firebox of the Nuke Delta Argentinian Grill


The Ñuke Delta loves building powerful, controllable fire — and then handing you the keys.

Cooking on the Ñuke Delta almost flips the script on typical grilling. Instead of rearranging and repurposing the cooking environment, you’re adjusting the coal bed beneath. In fact, that’s one of the top things we hear from customers: how easy it is to get spectacular results when you can adjust the height or shift the heat source with a single hand. Not that you’ll have to, of course, unless you feel like really piloting this grill. With an interior lined with refractory brick and complete control over where those embers sit, the Ñuke Delta boasts great heat dispersal and control — and it never asks you to touch a cooking grate.

  • That’s what this grill is really all about: producing great heat, knowing what to do with it, and equipping you to steer the process however you see fit. (Hey, just like a gaucho!) If you’ve ever burned wood splits before, you’re already familiar with how the Ñuke Delta works. Every log-stacking method we threw at this grill gave us reasonable results, so it’s effectively your choice. Getting fully preheated might take between 30–45 minutes and half a dozen splits, but the real joy here is in the spectacle.

    Speaking of, this grill loves attention. While it can take a while to start grill-worthy embers, it can do a remarkable impersonation of a fire pit. All the while, those refractory bricks will soak up heat and prepare to get to work. However, bear in mind that ambient temperature is a factor here; this grill will certainly cook in cold climates, but it’ll chew through wood to get there. Gaucho-style grills can only do so much against physics. But once you get that wood crackling, those grill grates will power through whatever you throw on them — we found it delicate enough to brown spiral sausage nicely without cracking the casing, and a tomahawk steak 3 inches thick cooked like a dream.

  • Burning wood down to embers on the Nuke Delta Argentinian Grill


Forget jack-of-all-trades grills; the Delta picks a few key features and really shines.
  • This grill forgoes complications to excel at its intended target. While the grill might be lighter on features, they’re really not the point. But it does come packed with a few surprises.

    Underneath the main cooking area, the Delta supplies a convenient warming drawer. No longer will your breads and side dishes shiver while the steaks sizzle. When you need to work the embers, which will be often, the included 30-inch fire poker and 30-inch ash shovel are ample tools that are satisfying to wield.

At the end of the day, our favorite perk is Ñuke’s commitment to customer satisfaction. The warranty comes standard — that receipt protects you for one year from purchase for manufacturing defects — but what about that hefty transit from South America? Starting with the well-packed box, they slip in several spare bricks as a precaution; if the grill arrives damaged, they’ll outright replace components at no cost. We’ve even heard of some customers getting paint shipped for small scratches. That’s a level of support we don’t often see, and we’re pleased they stand so strongly behind their product.

What is the overall width of the firebox including the handle. I am looking for something to put in an island that has a 30 inch wide opening
Was This Helpful?
Hi Dan! This width of the grill including the handle is 33.5 inches.

Asked by DanAnswered by Tiffany

Is the lid stout enough to be closed during open flame?
Was This Helpful?
Hi Tg! Yes, the lid can be closed during cooking, though it's designed for direct heat of the coal/wood.

Asked by TgAnswered by Kyle

What is the best way to get a cover for this? It says not to get it wet or else it might rust. Their larger model comes with a cover for it. Why not this one? What is the solution? I would need to leave it outside.
Was This Helpful?
Hi, thanks for asking! While this grill doesn't come with a cover specifically, and we don't sell the cover through our site, you can call us at 877-743-2269 and we'll help you to get the cover ordered.

Asked by BeeBeeQerAnswered by Hunter

Hello, does this grill have a brasero, or a place where you can continually burn wood for coals similar to the Delta model?
Was This Helpful?
Hi Devon. You can remove sections of the cooking grids in order to create a zone for tending hot coals.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
