Hotter, Faster, Better, Stronger
OCTANE is A&O’s grilling supercharger that delivers high power output and associated temperatures. Designed for a kettle style BBQ and positioned in the center of the grill, when filled with lit charcoal this 8 sided cone increases the temperature by accelerating the flow of air from a wide opening to a smaller one at the top of the cone. Additionally there are graded machined holes along the axis of the Octane that deliver increased flow of air and thus increased temperature performance. The higher temperatures are great for cooking chicken wings around the circumference of the cooker or for searing at high temperatures. Wings, crispy thighs or BBQ Fried chicken all benefit from the high temperature created by the OCTANE.
Constructed from 1.5mm 304 stainless steel, full body welded this is a durable tool for all year round BBQ!

Haven't had a chance to use this yet but it's well made, heavy duty and feels impressive. Slightly sharp edges mean you have to be careful handling it but otherwise all good.
Great piece of well made kit, can’t wait to use it this weekend
Made Korean fried chicken as my first experience of the vortex and it didn't disappoint.
I used it in my Pro Q excel smoker and the guage was up at 550 f° once the coals got going. Used Weber charcoal and built up the coals in the vortex, fired open all the vents before lighting and once the coals were going the lid went on and the temperature shot up.
Can't wait to try more chicken with the vortex, next time thinking wings and steak using the vortex to sear after the wings are done.
