3 Portable Grills for Your Summer Cooking

It’s nearly time for barbecue season (or perhaps it always is, depending on where you live—lucky you.) But sometimes you don’t need to involve the behemoth model with multiple burners and collapsible side tables. It’s great for a crowd of 12, but can feel like overkill for dinner à deux. Enter tabletop, portable grills, a no muss/no fuss miniature grill that’s perfect for a few calamari kebabs or a pair of lamb burgers. You can even take these small wonders to the park or the beach!

Mon Oncle Tabletop BBQ from Lumens

So stylish with its briefcase-like design youll want to show it off. (It even has fabric and leather straps and handle.) It comes in blue, green, or gray so you can even match it to your outfit. Perforations let things get really hotbut prevent the shell from overheating.
