The video simply shows the product in action. Listen to the great sound!
My favorite part was the cleanup. I like to grill, but I hate to have to deal with a bunch of hot coals. Shortly after it finishes burning, it is cool enough to touch and we just put it in the recycling. Really a great product! I'll never use charcoal again and this makes grilling the easiest way to make food away from home!
However -- I personally enjoy slow cooking over the BBQ, which usually involves getting the grill super hot with the chimney, burning off any leftovers and then allowing the coals to cool down to a nice even cooking temperature. Coals can be spread out nicely allowing you to use the entire cooking surface, or even split, so you can do indirect heat on food. Of course using the grill cover also allows you to cook both sides of the food evenly, minimizing the amount of time spent flipping, and thus losing juices to the fire.
This product is not designed to do any of that -- the grill plate is 10" in diameter, and that is your effective cooking diameter -- you must cook directly over the flame, and the instructions explicitly state not to use the grill cover. Of course I tried anyway, and aside from the strong fuel smell trapped under the cover, the platter went out fairly fast. I even tried different settings of airflow, but really you get only 2 settings, full blast or out. Full blast is very hot, and the flame is fairly tall, which licks around the food and burns it quickly. Make sure to set your timer, there is not much warning when this thing dies, and when its out, you have zero heat.
Is this a charcoal replacement? Not so much, BUT in a pinch it can save you a ton of time if you need to get some food cooked quickly. Think frozen burgers or maybe even a thin filet of fish -- anything that can be cooked over an intense sterno-like flame. I also saw a comment on here about possible emergency stash and I think thats a fantastic application.
The product is very easy to use.

These things are totally worthless. Nearly impossible to light, and the slightest breeze blows them out. How this made it to market is beyond me. AVOID!Published on May 22, 2010 by J. Duhon
