Our burning question: How do you design a gas grill that won’t burn the meat?
It all started when founder Peck Euwer pitched an idea to a friend. The concept was a gas grill based on a charcoal cooker owned by his neighbor, Toby. It was a 55 year old grill, called a Cue-Cart, an ingenious design with a height adjustable fire bed. Peck had the good fortune to cook on Toby's old Cue-Cart and immediately recognized the benefits it afforded the cook, unparalleled heat adjustment and it prevented flare-ups from reaching the food and burning it. The pitch was a success and Ferno was born.
The revelation: the firewheel
After searching everywhere for the latest and greatest grill innovations, we realized that the gas grill hadn’t changed much in 50 years. Sure there were new materials and a few interesting twists and turns but nothing really moved the needle in the world of gas grilling. Until we figured out a way to move the burners (not the grates) with a proprietary firewheel technology.
Our company: Ferno Grills
After four years of big-time engineering and hard-core grilling, the first Ferno Grill was introduced in 2018. Our team of passionate cooks and whip-smart engineers obsessed over every last detail—from the grates to the casters, the tank to the grease tray. The result: masters of the grill can finally master the flame.
