My new grill! lol

Picked up this little Cutie Sunday from Lowes. A whopping $25 bucks!

I think it could fit inside my other grills. lol

I broke it in with some extra thick pork chops with an Applejack glaze. Cooked over lump charchoal and a wee bit of Hickory. YUM!

That looks like a nice portable grill. You didn't use to see them with a lid that attached and a raised shelf.

I bought it so I don't have to heat up the big smoker to cook 2 pork chops. It's pretty nice, the chops just about fit on it. lol They had another one a tad smaller and a few different propane models. It should get quite a bit of use.

Cooks darn good, too.

I like the fact that it has a latching lid...helps keep nosey people out while you're trying to cook.

lol A couple drops of water into some hot oil works too.

That is a good idea Jinks... I have a small Weber, but even then it is too big at times to grill one steak. (Usually one steak can feed the both of us.) But I have adjusted to using only half the grill, so it works out. But I do like the compact nature of your little cutie! May have to check into one!

I'm going shopping at Lowe's today! I USED to have a little one that opened up and you could grill on both sides or just one - son borrowed it - we all know the rest of THAT story!

Very cool, Jeeks. Can you use it indoors? (Looks like two little holes for maybe a plug-in?) Reminds me a bit of the old hibachis - 'cept with a lid. How do you light it up? Had a little portabe grille I took everywhere - beach, park, camping etc. Have fun with it.

No, it's outdoor only. It's basically a small outdoor charcoal grill.

I had one of those $100 Char-broil gas grills that I should never have parted with. The large grills and smokers are nice, but not for everyday use. i.e. Hurry Up After Work Meals. I love the larger ones for cooking on weekends or if I have guests. This is a good size to cook for 2 on. It heats up in no time and saves on fuel (charcoal).

I use lump charchoal that gets lit in a chimney first. The small box on the bottom is an ash trap.

I want to try to smoke something on it this weekend.
