Patented Apr. 16, 1918. Fig 2 o E. LINDROTH., BROILER.
APPLICATION FILED JUNE l2. 1911 entran eine osoiin EMIL Lnvnnotrn, on Los nivfentes,y CALIORNIA.
To all 107mm t may concern Be it known. that l, OSCAR EMIL LIND- no'rri, a subject of the King of Sweden, residing at Los Angeles, in the county .of Los Angeles and State 'of California, have invented new Y and useful improvements in Broilers, of which the followinO is a specification.
This invention relates to a. broiler adapted for use with gaseous fuel, and arranged for broiling from below. I Broilers using gaseous fuel have not heretofore. been successfully used to broil from below. The reason for the failure to suocessfully use a broiler ofthis type has been'v as follows i Y,
The grease and juices dripping from the article `being broiled fall upon the'orifices or openings in the burners clogging them. lf the burner orifices are protected by a shield, the juices drip upon the hot partsvof the burner and are consumed, causing the article being broiled to become smoked and givingV to it a burntflavor. n
itis an object of my invention to provide a broiler which will use gaseous fuel and Vbroil from below witlioutlthe disadvantages enumerated above.
A further obiect of my invention is to provide details .of structure, whereby a compact, simple an durable broiler is obtained.
I accomplish these objects by means of the embodiment of my invention illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a plan view of the broiler with some of the broiler bars broken away to clearly show the position of the burner orifices. Fig. 2 is a section as seen on the line 2--2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a section as seen on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1. Fig. t is I an isometric view of av cap which may be used with the bars.
Referring more particularly to the draw-4 ing, the broiler consists of a base indicated by A and a broiler grate indicated by B. The features of my invention reside more particularly in the base A, which carries the burner elements.
Referring particularly to the base A, it is preferably a cast metal .structure andy is shown of box shape and formed with a compartment 5. The compartment 5 serves as a cooling chamber through which cold water circulates. A pipe 6 enters the compartment 5 at one side and extends to a point close to the opposite side of the compart- ,l I Specification of LettersPatent. 'i PatntQdp1. 16, 1918.

ment. A nipple 7 for connectionto a source of coldwater supply isprovided on thev` outer end. of pipe 6. The water issues from an opening 8 which is provided with a nipple for connection with drain pipes.
The upper surface of the base A is provided 'with a'series of longitudinallyextendf ing ribs 9 which have bores extending the length thereof. rlhe ends of the bores are closed with plugs 10, this permittingcleaning of the bores. The other'ends of 'the bores are connected to `fittings which include air mixing devices, gas valves and a manifold. The iittings just described Vareof the usual type, well known vin the art, aud for that reason will not lbe further described. Theyl are indicated generally-by reference o numeral l1. ExtendingV along fthel length of theribs 9. are apertures-12 connecting with` the bores.. The apertures 12 may be replaced by slots extending the `length of.
thebores. 1t is merely essentialf-tha't there be openingsl through which 'the fuel may iissue. A trough-itis formed on thev base The "grate bars are formed with lugs 19 and 2O at the ends which are bored to receive bolts, so that the bars may bebolted to the cross bars 15 and 16. Corner posts 21 support the grate above the base. These posts are. threaded and are engaged with threaded apertures which are formed in the ends of cross bars 15 and 16. Kerfs are formed in the heads ofthe posts, so that by rotating the posts, the distance vof the grate above the base may be adjusted.
I have also provided caps, one ofwhich is shown particularly in Fig. l and indicated by 22. A cap may be 'placed over a grate bar and thereby add to its thickness also its heat conductivity, so that articles such as oysters, which do `not require as broiled is placed upon the grate bars 17, l
the juices vwhich drip therefrom during the broiling process will be deflected from the orifices, in the burner and will drop upon the spaces between the ribs 9. In this location the juices would burn, if it were not for the cooling produced by the water circulating in the base. The juices will drain from'the top of the base into trough 14 and will be conducted away.
It is obvious thatv l have provided a broiler which is simple in structure and therefore cheap to manufacture. There is no plate interposed between the article to be broiled and the fiame. The specific form of broiler that have shown in the drawing is merely for the purpose of illustration. Various changes may be made in the mechanical structure to accommodate the broiler to articles of various sizes and fuels of various character.
That I claim is Y l. A broiler comprising a base having a burner formed thereon and cooling means for said base, said burners having` jet ori-V fices for directing the Haines upwardly, and a grate for articles to be broiled, said grate spaced above said vbase and including bars disposed above the orifices in said burner to shield the same from drippings, said base arranged to catch the dripp'ings on its cooled portion.
2. A broiler comprising a base having a burner formed thereon and a water jacket for cooling said burner, said burners having jet orifices for directing the flames upwardly, and a grate for articles to be broiled, said grate being spaced above said base and including bars disposed over the orifices in said burner to shield the same from drippings, said base arranged to catch the drippings on its cooled portion.
3. A broiler comprising a base having a burner formed thereon and cooling means for said base, said burners having jet orifices for directing the flames upwardly, a grate for articles to-be broiled, said grate being spaced above said base and including bars disposed above the orifices in said burner to shield the same from drippings, and cap for said bars, said base arranged to catch the drippings on its cooled portion.
A. A broiler comprising a base havingva burner formed thereon and a Water jacket for cooling said burner, said burners having jet orifices for directing the flames upy wardly, a grate for articles to be broiled, said grate being spaced above said base and including bars disposed over the orifices in said burner to shield the same from drippings, and caps for said bars, said base arranged to catch the drippings on its cooled portion.
5. A broiler .comprising a hollow base provided with means for circulating water therethrough yto cool the same, burners formed on theupper wall of said base, said burners having et orifices for directing the flames upwardly, and a grate for articles to be broiled, said grate spaced above said base and including bars disposed above the oriiices in'said burners to shield the same from drippings, said base arranged to catch the drippings on its cooled portion.
