BBQ Guide: The Portable

A mini version of a kettle, it features a round domed lid and small cooking surface. Popular for tailgating and camping.

The Portable

The Portable

Scan any stadium parking lot on game day and you’ll find more than a few of these. The portable BBQ is the mini-me of kettle BBQs, with the classic round shape, domed lid and vents on the top and bottom. Because of its small cooking surface, it is best suited to high-heat barbecuing over direct heat. Ideal for flipping a few burgers, dogs and sausages, or for cooking a continuous supply of chicken wings for hungry campers and tailgaters. Look for a lightweight model for portability and easy-to-use vents to control heat.
