This small sized cooking grill from Fuego is proof that dynamite comes in small packages. It can get you cooking in just five minutes thanks to its quick heating feature and it has the ability to go up to 700 degrees.

Although it only has one burner, you can use it for up to 20 hours with only 20lb of grill gas. This is in stark contrast to larger grills which can run out of steam in just 15 hours or less.

The single burner also features dual zone cooking which means you can cook two different types of meat at once.

Some users prefer to cook roasts on the slow cooking zone, and burgers or steaks on the faster inner ring.

You can switch between the two cooking zones using the provided control valve, and you’ll find it easy to move around thanks to its compact circular design and tilt lock wheels.

It’s important to note here that this grill doesn’t come with features that you’d expect, like side shelves or a warming rack. However, it makes up for that with quick, high-heat cooking, and easy to use portability.
