The SlatGrill is a portable grill that breaks down into a small kit for camping, hiking, fishing, biking and all outdoor activities that require traveling light. In addition to familiar, portable compacts from big BBQ manufacturers, there exists a sub-genre of ultra-portable camping grills. Some are simply grates that hang from a tri-pod or rest on fold-out legs. SlatGrills unique, inter-laced design is based on balsa wood model airplanes.
Four thin pieces of slotted, anodized aluminum slide together to form a rectangular base and 304 stainless steel slats drop into notches to make a cooking grate. Disassembled, the whole system fits in an attractive green canvas roll that is 18.5″ x 5.25″ x 2″ and weighs between three to four pounds, depending on the number of slats you use. It can support up to 200 lbs.
It may be fueled by many sources including charcoal, wood, white gas, butane, alcohol, Sterno, Bunsen burner and the MSR WhisperLite Stove.
The basic anodized aluminum kit pictured above includes a canvas case, nine stainless slats and lifting chains to move the hot grill on and off the fire. Additional slat three packs may be added to fill all fifteen slots. SlatGrill is also offered in an ultra-lightweight titanium model and a small “Scout” model.
Every SlatGrill comes with a Lifetime Guarantee for workmanship, including the canvas bag.
