Lodge Sportsman's Grill

With sunny skies predicted this weekend all over the country, it's time to start grilling outdoors, no? If you don't have a grill already, perhaps it's time to start thinking about investing in one. For apartment living, we like the Lodge Sportman's Grill ($69.95).

This little unit is ideal for patio or stoop cooking (we know a guy in the neighborhood who grills right on the sidewalk, sipping his wine and offering nibbles of his special lamb burgers). It is a classic hibachi-style charcoal grill with a nice 17" x 9" grilling surface with two adjustable heights.

The Sportsman's Grill is made by Lodge, the world's largest and oldest manufacturer of cast iron products, in business since 1896, so you know you're getting quality.
