The Oven


The Oven


 

We wanted to provide a full Latin Chicken Experience. In order to do so we had to have a charcoal rotisserie. We looked all over the states and could not find any charcoal commercial size rotisseries. After extensive research we decided to order our oven directly from Lima, Peru. After contacting several manufacturers we finally decided on one. The rotisserie took 2 months to be fabricated. We made arrangements to have the oven imported from Peru. After 3 weeks of delays with U.S. customs the oven finally arrived.

The process was a hassle and it took nearly three months to get the oven into Portland, but we know it was worth it so we can provide the real experience of Latin Style Chicken.

Our rotisserie oven can cook 30 chickens at a time in a matter of 3 hours.
