I bought the Esbit BBQ Box primarily for canoe camping trips with my fiancee. While we haven't taken it out in the canoe yet, I have had the opportunity to cook five meals with it. I love this grill. Set up is simple, there's enough space to cook a meal for two (a little creativity helps in arranging everything to fit), cleaning is super easy and it's smaller and lighter than my Cobb Grill. The packaging is efficient (although my folding legs got a tiny bit bent in shipping: not enough to even worry about straightening), and the added touches of a charcoal bag and spare thumb screw are nice. I might update this review when I've had a chance to try it with firewood as opposed to charcoal - I really like this idea as we can save on the amount of charcoal we pack in.
I have both this larger size and the smaller size which you can see on Esbit's website. Apparently, Esbit has chosen NOT to import the smaller version to the US, so I found one on eBay. The price for the smaller one is virtually the same that I paid for the larger one (which is why the importer told me over the phone that they didn't think it would sell too well in the US), but I'm a gadget guy, so I'm still satisfied. And the smaller one is really small, about 9"x6", barely enough for two burgers, but very portable. It's not a backpacker or minimalist unit though, due to weight. But the stainless steel construction is robust and the grill should last a long time if cared for. The unit is very cleverly designed, a virtual scaled up copy of the classic Esbit tablet stoves (water boilers, really) that are popular among campers. And the idea translates pretty well ... I've cooked mostly hot dogs and hamburgers on it, and it gets the job done with a small amount of charcoal. One...
This is an easy to setup and take down grill. It's just the right size to feed 2-3 people easily. It's compact enough to haul around in a backpack for beachbag. It's stainless so no corrosion to deal with. Does steaks with aplomb. Chicken thighs and or wings are no sweat. If you can locate this here on Amazon get it . These things come in 2 versions this is the larger of the two and are very hard to find. Buy it if you find it. Can't go wrong you'll enjoy it for years of beachgoing or hiking. or just a easy impromptu grill craving fix.
