Heat waves hopefully behind us, we’re finally in for great grilling weather! Instead of choosing between the vast number of full-sized grills we decided to focus on portable versions. Perfect for smaller patios, tailgating and travel, these are our favorites:

SON OF HIBACHI Combo with Snuff out Pouch
The “blast furnace” design enables you to be cooking in less than 10 minutes. 170 sq. in. of cooking surface and a convertible roasting oven. Patented Heavy Duty Snuff Out Pouch made with fire-retardant lining lets you pack up the grill while the coals are still hot. 19 lbs.
COBB Tabletop Premier Charcoal Grill
The Cobb’s patented design lets oxogen into the fire chamber from small holes below the coal. Heated air is then pushed upwards to the cooking surface, dispersing sideways creating an evenly heated cooking surface.
This circulation keeps the heat at an even throughout the grill and keeps moisture in the food while cooking.
