BBQ BEAUTY: GIANT PINEAPPLE FIRE STACK GRATE

Concorde Group is one of Calgary’s most influential hospitality brands. They entered the scene back in 1987 with the opening of their club, Republik and since then they’ve grown to one of Canada’s largest and most diverse hospitality organizations. Now, with over 20 restaurants under their belt, they play an instrumental role in shaping Calgary’s dining experiences.

Only the best

Concorde Group wanted a show-stopping centerpiece that could travel between Calgary’s most prominent hospitality venues and exhibit the best local BBQ over open charcoal and flame.

WHAT WE DID

54blue rose to the challenge to design something strong yet lightweight, large yet portable and simple yet striking. This unique, high-quality fire stack grate works as a functional open flame grill and attracts attention wherever it goes.

DESIGN

Inspired by Concorde Groups’s iconic pineapple logo, this custom-built statement piece boldly stands out at food festivals, events and restaurants. It’s clean lines and clear-cut features are contrasted by large, industrial-style bolts, lending itself to the modern, industrial-chic aesthetic trend that has become so popular in recent years. Concorde Group’s fire stack grate is distinct and recognisable, acting like a visual beacon for guests. The pineapple is a symbol of hospitality, and this playful design inspires feelings of sharing and community connection, while promising a fun, food-filled experience.

BUILD

Large and in charge, the fire stack grate stands at 6ft tall (80 inches) to make an impact in crowded venues. It’s composed of two pieces that weigh under 100lbs each, so it’s manageable for transport and can be easily assembled by a single person in under 10 minutes. The grill components are solid steel, ideal for retaining heat while cooking, whereas the pineapple was laser cut from quarter-inch mild steel, chosen for its light weight, strength and weather resistance.

LEGACY

Our innovative design made it’s debut at the Brewery and the Beast food and beverage festival in Calgary 2022, where locals were able to sample some local BBQ and grilled meats. Concorde Group pride themselves on bringing remarkable dining and entertainment experiences to the city of Calgary. This one-of-a-kind fire stack grate is no exception, and is sure to uphold their legacy at events for years to come.
