EZ Grill Disposable Instant Grill
How we tested
Not even our favorite no-frills charcoal grill, the Weber One-Touch Gold, is compact enough to travel farther than the backyard. Fortunately, there’s another option for picnics and beach barbecues: the EZ Grill Disposable Instant Grill ($9.99 for party size). Inside the box is an all-in-one grill—-essentially an aluminum pan (perforated for airflow) fitted with a metal grate on top and wire legs on the -bottom—plus two packages of “easy to light” charcoal. We had our doubts—the whole kit looked pretty flimsy—but once we struck a match, we were cooking. The spacious cooking surface accommodated three steaks at a time with room to spare, and the heat held steady enough for us to follow up with three chicken breasts—a total of more than 45 minutes of cooking time. Once cool, the grill can be thrown away or recycled. We wouldn’t use the EZ Grill for a big backyard barbecue, but it’s ideal for a movable feast.
