Some people sacrifice home grilling space, foregoing their dreams of owning a honkin’ Godzilla-sized grill and outdoor kitchen, in order to live in a prime urban location. If this is you, the Fyrkat is an awesome choice for a small balcony. Cook and smoke things you’ve been missing out on, like roasted duck, chicken, cornish hens, ribs, steaks, corn on the cob, and pototoes…mmm. It’s pretty hard to duplicate the taste of things cooked on a charcoal grill. Granted, you don’t want to get overzealous and buy a 30-lb. turkey or an oversized chicken. A 6-lb. bird is recommended.
When it comes to dumping out the ashes, the bottom of the cone where the ashes fall is removable by use of the convenient handle. Less mess and hassle. The rotisserie feature is battery-operated so that meat gets cooked evenly and automatically. There is also a manual crank in case you want to turn it yourself, or if you have no choice because the battery died.
The grill’s overall look is quirky, modern and fun. If it were a car, it would be a VW. Best of all, you can choose from black, lime green, tangerine orange, or bright red. The Fyrkat Cone Charcoal Grill is available in all four colors at $179.95 at Amazon. CB2 has the red one in stock for $179.95.
