Who doesn’t love the smell of grub on a grill? Especially with a lush mountainous backdrop. Or in the middle of a whole lot of drunk people proudly wearing your team’s jersey. Whether you’re venturing out camping in the backcountry or tailgating in the parking lot of a football stadium, you can take your outdoor kitchen with you. These portable stove tops and grills are sure to kick the experience up a notch.
