Fold and Go Portable Charcoal Grill

Bayou Classic's Fold and Go Portable Charcoal Grill is easy to carry, folding up into a compact attaché case size that weighs less than 7 pounds. Unfortunately the lightness is achieved by using thin flimsy construction. If you don't mind schlepping around something a little bigger and heavier you can do way better. Even a nice little grill like Weber's Smokey Joe costs less. Use our Equipment Search to find alternatives.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
