Notebook Charcoal Grill

It's not a proper camping trip in my family unless there's a grill involved. But since we've added activities like hiking, kayaking, and swimming to the otherwise standard itinerary over the years, willing participants and subsequent sets of hands have dwindled. So to keep up with tradition, we decided to replace our clunky portable grill for this sleek, transportable model. Built for carrying with one hand, the fold-flat design ensures you'll barely notice your grill alongside other necessary outdoor items. And the surface area of the grill is pretty large, so four hungry campers can be fed in record timing. Plus, it's just as useful off the campsite — at the beach, the park, or on the back porch.
