Food Service Equipment & Supplies/Char broil grill and heating


What would you recommend as equipment if I were to be grilling previously cooked chicken and what could I use to keep rice warm without electricity. I'm doing a food stand not good cart so I am able to use  propane. And Ice

Hi Blake:
It's really just a question of quality and price as to which brand(s) of char broilers you should consider to use. On the lower end of the spectrum you can consider Cecilware or Rankin Delux. Higher end would be Imperial Range or Wolf range.
Rice is difficult to keep warm properly unless you use a rice warmer. Anything else will either burn or dry out the rice. You can find propane fired rice warmers from companies like Town Equipment or Thunder Group.
Best of luck!
