48" Capital Culinarian Owners (Grill Question)

Posted by Rbaker (My Page) on

I'm close to ordering a 48" CC with 8 Burners. I don't want the griddle because I can simply put a griddle plate across 2 burners, and I wasn't going to order the grill because the majority of Viking and Wolf owners I know don't use it because of the smoke. I'm planing on using a Braun Elite 1200 CFM hood custom installed in a cabinet above the stove. It will be direct vented with no ducting at 90 degrees. Am I making a mistake by not ordering the Grill? Do you use yours? Does it smoke up your house?

Thanks for any help...

RE: 48" Capital Culinarian Owners (Grill Question)

As long as you have adequate make-up air (MUA) to go along with the 1200 CFM, you should have no issues. I have 1500 CFM with a passive MUA. 1200 should be more than enough. I have a friend who put in a Viking and a 1200 CFM and it smoked. After talking to him, it turns out that he didn't factor in MUA at all. I advised him to open his windows BEFORE grilling, while the grill was warming up. That made it much better, to the point where he could use the grill again.

I have a 48" CC with the 12" grill and I use it all the time, at least weekly. I even use it in the summer instead of my Weber outside. The CC's grill is a much better grill and I prefer cooking on it. If you do get the grill, your only regret might be that you didn't get the 24" grill. I only got the 12" and I wonder about that sometimes.
