Ancient Inspiration, Modern Ingenuity: The Gather Grills Story
With the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown closing operations at Strange Farms, a family-run corporate and private retreat venue, Jed found himself with some extra time on his hands. He sat down and looked at his new fire pit. His goal of gathering people around it physically was put on hold, but the desire for connection remained.
No Shutdown for Creativity
Not wanting to limit his idea to just a simple fire pit grill, a new vision emerged. What began as a traditional fire pit evolved into a rotating grill, smoker, griddle, and fire pit with a table to seat guests right up at the cook table. With the world on pause, Jed ordered some custom grill grates and got to work with his welder to create the very first Gather Grills prototype. After much trial and error, improvements, and upgrades, he finally arrived at the perfect design.
By being a grill and a griddle, a smoker and a fire pit, Gather Grills takes ancestral inspiration and adds a modern twist. The rotating grill table makes it easy to use and simple to serve. The folding, removable shelves offer functionality to the cook for holding ingredients and tools as well as being a ‘round the grill table for up to eight guests. After dining at the grill, convert it to a fire pit by removing the grates and adding fire wood. The rest of the night is yours to kick back and enjoy each other’s company.
