Warm weather really makes me want to get out of the kitchen, so thank goodness for portable grills that let me take my kitchen with me. When it comes to barbecuing outdoors, your choices range from cheap and disposable to expensive and luxurious, and all three of these grills cook up very tasty meat.
Good: When my friends and I gathered recently for a picnic in the park, one Weber grill devotee admitted that the sausages cooked on this Grill-N-Go Disposable Charcoal Grill ($8.99) tasted just as good as his. Plus, this version is lightweight and cleans up in a snap.
For two even better portable grills,
Better: Though I haven't had the pleasure of devouring food prepared on this barbecue, people are raving about the Fold Flat Grill (about $40.50), and the design is just too ingenious to ignore.
Best: Weber grill owners are fanatical about the company's products, including this Weber Q220 Gas Grill ($199). It's not something you'd want to schlep too far, but it is a well-constructed machine that makes excellent barbecue at home or on the go.
