Meet a High-Tech Rocket-Stove From Brazil

It’s a Barbecue. And a Wood-Burning Pizza Oven. And a Fire Pit. And More.

By Hadley Tomicki ·

It isn’t going to be easy.

But you need to fire your grill.

In time, it will come to see your side of things.

And admit to its shortcomings.

Meanwhile, you’ll be running around town with your new Noori, a very versatile, very portable way to cook just about anything over real fire.

It’s a curvy concrete body on wheels with a flattop grill at its head and a wood-burning stove in its gut that is capable of reaching extreme temperatures.

So that you can...

Master the art of cooking. You can place casseroles, pans and potted dishes on the grill on top while igniting logs below. Using a “rocket system,” the Noori channels heat skyward to cook these things while you hang outdoors, talking grill talk and drinking beer. Or however that works.

Grill, baby, grill. This thing is made in Brazil where they know a thing or two about cooking meats. So naturally you can grill or smoke on top using charcoal or wood, too. Naturally.

Let it burn. When dinner is done, you just remove the top half of the stove and let it do its thing as a blazing, wood-burning fire pit. Hopefully someone will have a guitar.

Party. Pizza party. There’s a disk you can place over the grill to prepare pizzas. Then it’s just a matter of how hot you want it to get. With enough wood you can even cook a pizza in four minutes.

Not that there's a contest.
