Gear - Cast Iron Grille

I don't know why I was so enamored with the thought of having a cast iron grille, but I just had to have one. Well, my beautiful and talented wife got me the Lodge Grille:

And I have not been disappointed. It's a bit on the small side, like a hibachi, but there's only two of us so it's fine for a couple of steaks or hamburgers. This could easily cook four hamburgers or four medium chicken breasts. I season the grille with sprayed on olive oil and then scrub it with a bronze brush after we're done cooking and nothing ever sticks.

It's heavy but small and is a fine choice
for when you want to use charcoal. It is great table top cooker, perfect for setting on the end of a picnic table while you cook and chat with people sitting at the table. Just make sure to put a sheet of tinfoil down underneath it. The doors on the front allow you to move around coals without removing the grille and the grille itself can either be used as shown or upside down for hotter cooking.

    Oh, and this can grille up a mess of shrimp. Imagine a cook at the table party.

    That really looks like a great grill that would be perfect to take along on a camping trip. It is small but won't take up much room in your pickup. If you are interested in another small portable grill that would also be perfect for a camping trip try the Stansport, Stainless Steel Propane Keg Bargeque It is shaped like a keg, it looks really coo.
