David in Israel recommends the Pyromid Folding Grille. David notes: “I got mine at an outdoor gear shop closing sale. I was surprised by the high list price for a grille but that was before I used it. Made of stainless steel the infrared energy from the coals is all aimed upwards toward the food, after many seasons of use the once mirror shiny grille is a dull gold color where it was heated but there is no sign of corrosion. I follow the instruction to use a foil liner every time and this makes cleanup easy, just carefully remove the foil liner with the dying coals add a little water and once the grille is cool fold up and go. Newer grilles also include a super heat grate which is supposed to intensify the heat by holding briquettes sideways so the ash will fall off. Since the grille is only an inch deep and 12 inches wide when folded up in its bag it easily straps to the side of my bicycle rack for trips to the park or farther. I have burned everything form Sterno to charcoal to driftwood when touring and it has always been good to grill burgers, cook a chicken, or boil a pot of water.

Peterson Foundation which is devoted to warning the public about the looming bankruptcy of the government. I have just discovered that they have a movie, “I.O.U.S.A.” coming out in theaters in a few weeks. A movie trailer is available on their web site. “I.O.U.S.A“. may be to the US economy what “An Inconvenient Truth” was to the environment.
