    Portable grill

    Saw this on Gizmag this morning, figured maybe someone might find it interesting.



    Still have to have charcoal with you, but if you are a grilling 'purist' and don't wanna use gas while on the go, this might be pretty cool for motocamping.

    I'm a gadget freak, so my opinion is biased, but I think that's pretty cool.

    Seems like an interesting idea, but I'm happy with my Weber Go-Anywhere grill.

    I like it but they aren't selling it any yet. I use this for most of our cooking. I also have a Jetboil but that goes for solo trips and Mountain House meals.

    Re: Portable grill

    While it may be 'interesting', I think it is too large to pack on a bike and wonder just how durable it would be seeing it is made out of material.

    I used to pack/use a Grilliput, but the cooking surface was just big enough to grill a decent sized meal for one, it was finicky to assemble and the SS cross pieces started to bend after a fair bit of use. Along with the veggie steamer required to hold the briquettes, it was starting to get a little bit on the bulky side.

    I then bought a folding portable grill off of G wizz, very similar to this one

    It folds fairly flat and has a good sized grill top, so you can cook a decent sized meal for two on it. It packs away in it's own bag and easily fits in a trunk, or most panniers.
    I also pack a fold flat charcoal chimney in with it to start the briquettes on fire quickly and easily.

    I bought a cheap version of this grill on Amazon. I used it a few times, but it just didn't fit back into the bag and the grills didn't sit right on the top. I tired of it and left it at a campground by the dumpster in case someone else needed a camp grill. Yours looks pretty good.

    Re: Portable grill

    Yah, I only posted the thing because I know a lot of people like to charcoal grill instead of gas. For a trailer tugger I don't think it's too big, and being self-contained like it is, even having the suspended coal rack like it does I thought it might appeal to some. Whether or not it even comes to market is a good question, seems like kickstarter ideas are all the rage nowadays.

    I am using something called Donk Grill A guy on one of the forums make it. You can see the steak on it. It folds flat so it's easy to transports. Only thing is it's made from iron so you have to keep it seasoned up good.
