I-Grill Portable Charcoal Grill lets you bring the beach with you

The I-Grill's design makes it easy to tote around, with a carrying handle that doubles as the support stand.

If you don't want to share, tell them it's not a we-grill or even a wii-grill; it's an I-Grill.

At the grill is a good place to be. As the flames lick the food and the scent of cooking wafts through the air, those in nearby olfactory range are summoned to the scene as if they had no choice. Which of course, they do not; whether it is chicken, burgers, pork, or veggies, the combination of food, fire, and the great outdoors is very hard to resist. Depending on the company (bears?) this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Luckily, location can be anything you want it to be.

Bulky grills may be great on the patio, but they don't travel well. Getting a grill to where you want it to go can take a bit of coaxing. That doesn't mean it can't be done, of course; all that is needed is to get a handle on the situation. Perhaps an actual handle.

The I-Grill Portable Charcoal Grill ($89.95) is a folding grill designed for, obviously, portability.

The little grill that could features a handle that folds down to become support legs when opened. The sleek, easy-to-carry grill has 175 square inches of grilling area, which is enough to feed a crowd.

Then again, you don't want to feed a crowd -- so when they come around, just point at the name emblazoned on the grill's side.
