Review: Hero Charcoal Grill

Food cooked over charcoal tastes better—but when floating the river, or out of space in an overloaded vehicle, a gas stove is the only option, right? Wrong, says Fire & Flavor, whose HERO charcoal grill brings the best barbecue flavors to any outdoor cooksite. Compact and lightweight, with disposable charcoal pods, this portable grill can even be stashed in your pack, for a first-rate picnic on the shores of an alpine lake.

Available at area stores; $60.
