B.B.Q. !

Fire up the grill! Memorial day has past and summer is just inches away. Not every home has the luxury of a large, beautiful grill outside. Small apartments, ideally those with access to an outdoor patio, balcony, etcetera, may have the enjoyable option of preparing food barbecue style! Small portable grills can be found at most major retailers such as Target, Linen's and Things, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, etcetera. Now here comes the Most Excellent idea...

Mike and Maaike have created the handy Baja BBQ Firepack for Lazzari/ Design Annex, a package of eco-friendly instant charcoal that avoids the need for lighter fluid and the resulting chemical residue. Two pounds of natural lump charcoal is packaged in recycled biodegradeable paper pulp with an integrated chimney. Simply place the entire package in the barbecue and light. The coals are ready in 15 – 20 minutes. No mess, nothing toxic. Click on the image above for a closer look.
