Space-challenged grillers, listen up. Stop denying yourselves that summer smoky flavor, even if you don't have a backyard parking space for a grill.
We've been testing this charcoal bucket grill ($34.95) by Sagaform as featured in the June issue of Bon Appetit, and we like it.
We were wary at first. Out of the box, this fern green grill feels wimpy and looks more like something you'd trot down to the beach to build sandcastles.
But as we carried the bucket grill back and forth from our apartment to the roof, we came to appreciate how light it is. The bucket-style handle makes it easy to move and the grill handle folds in for easy storage.
It only works well if you're grilling for two or three, but it sure is better than missing out on grilling entirely. This tuna from Blue Moon Fish at the Grand Army Plaza farmer's market cooked up on our new grill was our favorite feast of the season so far. Happy Outdoor Home Month!
Note: Obviously, this grill is for outdoor use only. We keep an old wine bottle full of water at the ready right next to our grill, just in case.
