    Son of Hibachi

    My latest MCS acquisition is this vintage locally manufactured portable hibachi that I picked up at an estate sale for $3. It's my new Yakitori grill.

    Apparently it's designed to function as its own chimney too. Check out this goofy video from 1979. Plenty of lighter fluid was used but I watched another video where a guy used a fire starter instead which will be my method.

      Man that is a beauty of a grill. Cool lighting system too! Did you get a hat to wear with it like in the video?

          Good find on the grill and video, I only planned on watching the video for a minute or two but I couldn't stop. The video brought back memories of lighter fluid in a metal container, the sound when you squeezed it and the pop it would make after a little heat got to the metal.

            Can't believe I watched the whole thing.
            Long live BBQ and PBR too.

              Score!!

              I want one now, too. Worth *way* more than $3. Five bucks, at least.

              I like that it's realistic enough that on the fishing trip they ended up eating burgers.

                Good observation 😂 It was actually $6 but everything was half off because it was the last day of the sale. I also got a Weber rotisserie for $4 that I'm giving to my buddy across the street and a 1 pound propane tank for $2.

              Got one of these secondhand as well. Works not too bad. In reality, extinguishing and transporting isn’t at all fast. There are better options but this is fun to mess around with.

                Do you ever use it for Yakitori?

                I'm not sure what threw me most.....the space heater usage or the random Dracula shot.

                I will say, I don't think I could ski and whip out my PBC or Kettle with such flair as they did in the video.

                (And what was the kid doing with the tire?!)

                  Right? He was letting air out of two tires on the car, haha...

                So much to unpack in that video....so much lighter fluid...
                Not sure I'd trust the "snuff pack" to put it into my car right after using it
                I love the guy skiing with it.
                The clothes!!
                And, as commented above, what was the kid doing with the tire, and what was up with Dracula??

                    The real question is how did I miss this back in 1976?????
