Hot Pot BBQ

By: on June 29, 2014

Just as efficient and clever, and even more agreeable to look at than this balcony BBQ is this balcony BBQ, the Hot Pot grill from black+blum. A sizzler and herb garden rolled into one, the terra cotta pot's planted top lifts to reveal a small charcoal grilling surface underneath. The Hot Pot can add space-saving character to a small patio or balcony in the same breath it adds basil, rosemary, cilantro, or parsley to burgers and kebabs.

The Hot Pot's BBQing surface area measures about 11-1/2" in diameter and the grill stands 10-1/2" high. The stainless steel cooking structure is coated in insulating ceramic and accompanied by a pair of stainless steel tongs with a storage slot. Note that plants installed in the grill's lid should be housed in watertight containers.

black+blum also takes credit for the ironically heart-melting design of this polar bear ice tray.

The Hot Pot BBQ is a top Dude Gift for the Garden pick.
