HTG Trading group company, Taylor UK, is now supplying Josper’s range of specialist solid fuel cooking appliances in the UK, including the HJX line of charcoal broiler ovens.
Josper’s HJX range is designed to allow chefs to deliver an authentic smokey flame cooked taste throughout the year, with a filtration flue that allows it to be positioned underneath an extraction hood and sited indoors.
The HJX range combines oven and grill in one unit. The cooking chamber is fully enclosed, with smoke exhaust passing through a specially designed flue that filters particulate matter and cools the smoke down before it is released into the kitchen’s ventilation system.
The cooking chamber is separated from the exterior of the oven by a cavity. Vents draw in air from below and help to keep the appliance safe to touch as well as helping to keep the temperature in the kitchen down.
Grill racks in the oven can be put in different positions, allowing for different foods to be cooked simultaneously. Constructed from stainless steel, the HJX range is simple to clean and can be supplied with a selection of door colours allowing it to be matched to existing décor.
The HJX is available in a range of sizes. The HJX-20 is a compact countertop unit that has an average of 25kg per hour production capacity with a daily charcoal consumption of between 6 to 8kg.
The HJX-25 has an output of 60kg per hour and uses 10-12kg of charcoal a day. For larger locations, the HJX-45 has a maximum output of 90kg an hour at 12-16kg while the largest in the range, the HJX-50 can handle and average of 110kg an hour while requiring 16-20kg of charcoal.
David Rees, marketing manager of Taylor UK, said: “Josper has built an unparalleled reputation for the quality of its products, and Taylor is very excited to be offering them to UK businesses.
“The combination of advanced technology and ancient cooking techniques allow chefs to offer authentic flame cooked food inside a modern professional kitchen.”
