I don’t know about where you live, but here in NYC, the dog days of summer are suddenly upon us. Like, it is OVER 90 DEGREES already. People are freaking out and getting all sorry that they ever wished for heat back in the days (the day before yesterday?) when it was sub 40 degrees and ice drizzling.
But I am looking on the bright side and starting to think about cooking outdoors. Maybe you’re like me and don’t have room to keep a grill in your apartment. Or maybe you want to cook on the beach, or in some campground someplace (where they allow cooking over open flame, of course).
In any of those instances, our German brothers and sisters over at Manufactum have you covered with this one-use alderwood grill. It’s designed to cook your meal to perfection, and then to cook itself into a pile of ash, which you can just sweep away. It doesn’t get much better than that, landfill wise.
You do need a pan or a little stainless steel metal rack to cook on (these can multitask as cooling racks for cookies or fruit pies, too!) But then you are good to go. And in the end, the whole grill burns down to almost nothing and you can sweep up and move on. The ash and carbon are great to add to compost, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Now all you have to do is figure out the menu. Manufactum One Way Grill made of Alder Wood. €11
