    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?????

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


                      GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
