I live in a building without any common outdoor space, not even a patio. This makes having a bbq somewhat tricky. Recently, I have discovered disposable and portable bbqs. Essentially a tin tray filled with charcoal that sits on a wire rack. If you wander through Victoria Park on a warm evening, it is filled with people using these.
However, the disposable bbqs are not ideal. Yes, they’re cheap and conveniently sold everywhere. But, they’re slow to heat-up and take a long time to actually cook something through. It also just feels wasteful and slightly dangerous, as they sit very close to the grass. Given that I plan on doing a lot of barbecuing during the long and warm summer evenings, I am thinking of investing in a high quality portable barbecue.
I have my eye on this Lodge cast iron Hibachi grill. Although it maybe quite heavy to carry on my bike.
Other portable barbecues I’m considering:
Smokey Joe by Weber.
Bodum Fyrkat with charcoal or gas.
