Hubcap Grill ....

Used that little grill " thingee " that looks like a hubcap today . Seems to work just fine on the little butane stove .

Have to ask. How is this 'grill' an improvement over a fry pan?

Don't really think a grill is always an improvement over a frying pan , certainly wouldn't be using this thing at home- this was just to try out the thingee ..... But this does seem to work like a grill for outdoor cooking if one doesn't take a bbq along ....haven't seen anything smaller on which one could grill ...easy clean ceramic surface ....smokeless because there is water in the ring under the grill ...I can see using it for fish ,chicken ,bratwurst grilled veggies ...not sure about a big thick steak ....

I was wondering about the "smokeless" claim since smoke is where a lot of the flavour comes from when grilling or BBQ. I'm currently smoking out the neighbour ( ribs ).

The smokeless thing is for people who want to grill indoors ....on a range .... however if one where to use this thingee without the water in the ring it would likely become "uncleanable" drippings would burn to a crisp ...it does hot .

got to be less fattening since you are not cooking in oil with the frying pan.Looks delicious...
