Who doesn’t love to grill? In fact, some would do it twelve months of the year and incredibly, most of us choose the exact same food to grill. It definitely is a fact that the smell of a barbecue alone sets the mood of happiness and contentment, even if you have a small grill…A barbecue is a barbeque after all.
The word barbecue actually derives from a Taino word (native people of the Caribbean) which means ‘sacred fire pit.’ So how great would it be if you could take your own little sacred fire pit camping or on a picnic or even to a tailgating party? Well below are some of the very serviceable portable grills at a most attractive and affordable cost:
Premium Charcoal Grill for the Price
Weber 121020: This is the Go Anywhere charcoal grill which provides 160 square inches of grilling surface. Rectangular in shape, it has a steel plated cooking grate as well as plated steel legs which move to secure the lid for transport. The lid itself is a glass reinforced nylon handle. Even while cooking this handle stays cool.
With two adjustable dampers, the flow of air is evenly regulated and each damper has three vent holes. Additionally, the grill has a porcelain-enameled coating which will prevent it from fading or rusting.
This grill is solidly planned and built because believe it or not, it is constructed with no nuts or bolts. The legs pivot, which lock the glass lid in place and it’s so easy to put in storage until your next barbecue season. This little grill can go-anywhere. It’s a great partner for camping and tailgating and the grilling area is large enough to fit 4 steaks.
