Bodum Fyrkat mini picnic charcoal grill

Standing just over 13 inches high, this portable grill is small and light enough to tote on a bike to your grilling destination. But it's not all smoke - sturdily built from enamel-coated steel and heat-resistant silicone, it boasts a wide mouth nearly a foot long in diameter that can fit plenty of good eats. Imagine the impromptu grilling parties at the park or on the patio that this stylish sizzler could ignite.
