About Product

The Gentlemen’s Hardware Portable BBQ is a larger model of the small suitcase portable BBQ that is manufactured by the same company.

This product is an optional two-colour (navy and black) stainless steel grill assembled with a coal tray. It is lightweight, weighing only 7 pounds and at one glance, it looks like your regular suitcase.

Perhaps one thing that’d draw your attention to the Gentlemen’s Hardware Portable BBQ is what is on the blue or black surface. What is written on it? You might wonder. Well, scrawled on the blue or black surface of the product is a conspicuous Gentlemen’s Hardware motto: ‘The Adventure Begins.

The product has a simple clasp system that makes it easy to open and close. Speaking about ‘open and close’, here are the dimensions: When opened, the grill measures 13.00″× 12.00″× 16.00″ inches in weight, height and length respectively ; and when closed, it measures 4.50″ × 17.50″× 12.75″ inches in weight, height and length respectively.

The Gentlemen’s Hardware Portable BBQ also comes hooked with some adjustable chrome clampers that stabilizes the grill when it’s being mounted and ensures it doesn’t topple over.


What’s The Product For?

The Gentlemen’s Hardware Portable BBQ is a compact product mainly used for the pleasure of an outdoor barbecue grilling experience during adventures such as camping or festivals.


Who Needs It And How Helpful Can It Be?

If you are a camper or just the outdoorsy type who enjoys taking picnic trips, or going on long journeys, then this product is for you.

It erases the difficulty of carrying your compound grill, as weighty and large as it is, to the beach, into the woods or the open greens.

Because of how portable and lightweight it is, you can easily fit it into the boot of your car and its high adjustability eases the process of mounting and dismounting.

With a tested and certified durable coated steel, you are assured of long-lasting barbecue stints with it even against the heat produced.


How Can It Be Installed In A Car

This product doesn’t require any special way to set up or install. You can just get it in and out of your car boot in a jiffy. Given it is essentially for external use, I recommend that the BBQ grill be put in your car boot as you prepare for camping.

Gentlemen's Hardware BBQ


For an item with such functions as this, this product is, as its name implies, is actually portable. It’s suitable for any outdoor event whether it is a festival, camping, picnic and small hangout at your home.

As much as I’d like to give it a full pass, there is an issue with the product that is worth pointing out incase you’re thinking of adding the product to your shopping list.

It will be important to point out the overwhelming coal consumption of the BBQ due to the distance between the coal tray and the grill, and because of this, it will take quite some time for your beef or shrimp to be fully prepared and ready.

Perhaps an adjustment to its structure will give this product the full pass mark it should have. We hope you found our Gentlemen’s Hardware Portable BBQ review helpful.
