To all whom it may concern:
Be it known'that l, IIERM'AN i'oimck, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Norfolk, in the county of Norfolk, State of Virginia, have, invented a Icertain new and useful Broiler, of which the following is a description.
My invention relates to improvements in broilers in which the. flame is directed at the same time from above and below toward the food to be broiled, and inwhich the grate and the lower bank of jets may. be readily raised toward or lowta-ed'from the upper bank of gas jets; and the objects of my: imprm'ement are- To provide a broiler using gas fuel, broiling from above and below at one and the same time, without turning the meat' to be broiled, and in addition to these advantages attained by my earlier invention, embodied in a prior application, lil'ed March 21., 1911, Serial. No. (315,963, admits (it-adjusting the broiler easily and quickly to all sizes and thicknesses of meat to be broiled, without removing or handling the hot grate, and without stopping or interfering with the operation ofbroiling.
Other. objects will appear from the here; inafter description.
l attain these objects by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which'- Figure 1 is a front view of myimproved ln'oiler: Fi 2 is a side View: Fi 3 is a h 7 h plan view oiithe lower perforated burner pipes, the frame on which they are carried, and the adjacent pipe connections, and Fig. 4 is a sectional View. 1
Similar letters refer to similar parts in the several views.
A is the body of my improved broiler, comprising'an outer case, a warming oven flue. and standards for upholding the whole.
B is one of the upperpertorated burner pipes, and B is mne of the lower perforated burner pipes. i
C and-O are burner cocks; D is a drip trough; l) is a lower drip trough, and (l isan outlet pipe therefrom for conducting grease to a receptacle not shown.
E the inlet gas supply pipe connected directly with the upper burner pipes B and Specification of Letters Patent. Patnted NOV. 28, 1 91 l Application filed June 13, 1911. Serial No. 632,945.
l') istlie lower gas supply pipe for the lower bank of burners.
I is a flexible metallic gas pipe coil eonneeting the upper gas supply pipe E with the lower gas supply plpc' E.
(i is the upper member of the grate, crnsisting of a .plurality oi grate bars, g, each convex upward and each separated from itsadjzu-ent bar by a narrow longitudinal spare, g. 7
ll is the lower member of the grate, comprising a plurality of grate bars, h, concave upward, each separated from the adjacent grate bar by a narrow longitlu'linal space, It. l is the frame, carrying the grate G---Il, and the gas supply pipe E and the lower perforated burner pipes B, which may be raised and lowered in the guides I by the upright support K, having a lower threaded portion turning in the nut L, which is also a beveltoothed gear wheel meshing with the companion bevel toothed gear wheel L on the shaft M, operated by the crank N. The nut and bevel gear L has integral with it. a collar resting upon the plate 0, within which the upright support K is raised and lowered.
P and P are grooves in the sides of the frame I carrying the grate Gl l, giving'a plurality of adjustments of the grate G-H to the lower bank of burner pipes as may be required for the length of flame used.
The doors, pipe connections and stopcocks do not require special mention here,
as their uses are all apparent from the drawings.
The, operationof my improved broiler is as follows: The grate and the lower bank of gas burners beirfgadjusted in the frame, and being in fixed position with relation to each other, may be lowered or raised. I have an adjustable broiling space between the top bank of-burners B and the grate, which may be altered to aecommo'date the thickness of any meat or other food to be broiled. I may place a st'eak upon the grate G-IT, turning the crank N to raise the broiler to within four inches ofthe top bank of burners B, then turning on the gas an'c lighting the flames, the broiling proceeds from below and from above, without turning the steak when broiled. I may broil a thick piece of roast beef by simply lowering the frame I with the grate and lower bank my invention,
of burners, by turning the crank N the other way, and I am enabled to make these adjustments by having the flexible metallic gas pipe coil F.
Changes and variations of form may be made without departing from the spirit of for T accomplish'in my improved broiler rapid and eflicient broiling from above and below without turning the meat; and I may effect all the nice adjustments of the gas flames to the meat, whatever the thickness of the meat may be, without the annoying hand-work of withdrawing the hot grate from a slide and adjusting it in another slide.
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. In a broiler, an oven containing a grate,
and gas jets, a grate, means for supplying gas to the gas ets, a lower bank of gas ets adapted to project the flames upward, means for raising and lowering the grate and lower without removing bank of gas jets together,
bank of the same from the even, an upper gas jets adapted to project the flames down- L ward toward the yratc, means for connecting the gas-supp y of the upper bank of gas jets with the lower bankof gas jets in various relative positions.
2'. In a broiler, an oven containing a grate and gas jets, a double grate, the lower memher'of which comprises grooved grate bars concaved upward. in combination with an upper grat'e'member, whose bars inv cross section are convex upward, each arranged. over one of the spaces between the bars of the lower grate, a lower bank of "as jets adapted to project the flames upwar means for raising and lowering the grate and lower bank of gas jets together without removing the same from the oven, an upper bank of gas jets adaptedto project the flames downward, means for supplying gas to both banks of gas ets, and means for connectingdt-he movable bank of gas jets in its various relative positions with the gas supply.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand at the city, county and State of New York, this 5th day of June, 1911.
