How it works

with infrared innovation

10 years of research and development

Crossray BBQ

The design challenge was to create something “NEW” in the BBQ market: redefining a BBQ to perform like cooking over a bed of red hot coals; providing even heat without flare-ups and to be a true multi-functional outdoor cooking appliance, that produces tastier and juicier food, and so easy. 

This is achieved using patented infrared cooking technology and includes both gas and electric versions, in portable, in-built and outdoor kitchen options.

Even cooking

For the Gas BBQ range, CROSSRAY uses angled side burners that are built into the BBQ. They are surface combustion ceramic burners and located close to the grill, which enables a very high surface temperature to be achieved. Additionally, there are no large flames, which results in significantly less gas usage (up to 50% less). Also, the CROSSRAY burners provide complete and even coverage over the entire cooking surface, so you no longer need to worry about constantly moving the food around due to hot and cold spots. Please refer to the below heat maps for tested data.

Each BBQ is supplied as standard with grill plates. The unique and patented design of the grill plates provides protection to the burners from direct overhead fat drip and splatter, which results in less smoke and dangerous flare-ups. Hotplates are also available as an optional accessory. With less flare-ups, cooking with a CROSSRAY is much more enjoyable.

CROSSRAY gas BBQ’s are the only BBQ that can provide controllable, even heat from 140°C (4 burner models) to 350°C+, while using 50% less gas than a conventional BBQ. As it’s just like cooking over read hot coals, food cooks more evenly and stays moist and juicier.

For the Electric BBQ, these features are achieved using dual high-intensity infrared electric elements. These have a wound carbon-filament internal element and located close to the cooking surface for maximum output.

Award Design

Cooking with infrared technology is different to cooking with traditional BBQ’s. It may take a few cooks to perfect it, but once you experience it, you will never go back.

The ability to cook at higher temperatures does not mean that you burn your food. CROSSRAY cooks evenly from inside out, while traditional BBQ’s tend to burn the outside of the food, while leaving the inside uncooked. As it cooks food more evenly, it does so much quicker, leading to a faster cook, and using significantly less gas and electricity.

CROSSRAY Gas BBQ

CROSSRAY Electric BBQ

Temperatures are measured on the surface of the BBQ grill. All units were pre-heated on High for 15 minutes with the lid down, then tested, using a model xxxx temperature probe. Ambient temperature was approx. 18°C. The gas models tested are CROSSRAY TCS4PL and JACKEROO SS Series. The electric models tested were CROSSRAY TCE15F and Weber Pulse 1000.
