Our super-portable Smokeless Charcoal BBQ Grill offers a degree of controllability and safety not found in other grills. Lump charcoal - about half a pound - is held securely inside a tip-proof stainless steel mesh basket at the center of the grill. A small variable speed fan, powered by 4 AA batteries, provides airflow up through the charcoal. This variable airflow not only allows the grill to be ready in just 3 minutes after lighting, its bellows-like action permits controlled, smoke-free burning - skipping the smoky smoldering stage entirely.
An inner polished stainless steel bowl reflects the radiant heat upwards towards the grilling surface while the food is protected from direct flame. This patented heat distribution system ensures that the BBQ produces high heat very quickly and distributes it evenly while requiring only 10 of the charcoal used in traditional charcoal grills. The outer bowl, which is made from powder-coated steel, never gets hot - it can be picked up and moved, or set right on the table. The inner bowl can be quickly removed for easy cleanup with soapy water, or placed in the dishwasher.
One fill of lump charcoal lasts between 40 and 90 minutes, depending on the heat setting. The grill, which comes in a convenient carrying bag, weighs 9-1/2 lbs. and the usable grilling surface is 12" diameter (enough for up to 4 people). 4 AA batteries included. Lump charcoal is recommended.
