Son of Hibachi is two small Hibachi Grills connected with hinges that can be folded together then zipped up in a heat resistant carrying case for exceptional portability. Moreover, the unique design makes starting charcoal a snap. You just fill each side with charcoal and fold the trays up. Start the fire at the bottom in a slide out pan that doubles as an ash catcher. Flames shoot up and create a chimney effect. Within ten minutes the coals are red hot. When you’re done cooking, fold it back up and let all the gunk burn off. Ready to leave, but the SOH is still hot? No problem. Just pop it back in the flame-retardant lined carrying case and you’re on your way.
Hibachi Grills are great for searing steaks, burgers, shrimp and any thin foods that cook fast. SOH has some interesting tricks in their manual for roasting larger BBQ cuts. They also offer an optional rotisserie. It’s pricier than many Hibachi Grills, but the double grill, outstanding portability and ease of starting and stopping the fire are unique, value-added features. Fascinating design.
Son of Hibachi is one of a small selection of products offered by Mr. Flame. The rest of their catalog is fireplace equipment.

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.

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.
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!
