SlatGrills Summit Grill - Tool Of The MonthPosted in Product Reviews on September 1, 2013 0) (
The SlatGrills Summit grill isn't a wrench or a pair of pliers, yet it fits in the Tool of the Month category because staying happy on the trail involves staying fed, which is something that takes the proper tools to do right. Think about it. You could have an otherwise epic adventure, but if the food was bad (or scarce) then that's about all you'd remember about the trip.
SlatGrills offers a way to combine the authenticity of a home-cooked meal with the compact convenience of a backpacking stove. The shown Summit model is crafted in the USA from water-jet–cut titanium, breaks down to a compact 4x9-inch size, and is stored in a convenient pouch. Weight is a scant 23 ounces. For varying needs and budgets, SlatGrills also has models made from stainless steel and from aluminum.
Once assembled, you can use the Summit grill as a compact barbeque. Use any fuel you like, such as charcoal or wood, and place your meal ingredients directly on the slats. If you don't need a barbeque, you can use the Summit grill as a cook top because it will easily support fullsize pots and pans. Use Sterno fuel or a backpacking stove (MSR's Whisperlite works especially well) as a burner below the pan.
If you want a home-cooked meal without the home-sized cooking gear, take a closer look at the SlatGrills Summit grill. It's stash-able cooking convenience.
