BioLite Portable Grill

We’ve featured the BioLite CampStove before. Now we’ve got the Grill attachment. The BioLite CampStove alone is great for boiling water or cooking 1 thing at a time. The Grill adds on more surface area to cook more items, as well as grill your food too. The compact design has stability legs which fold away for transport and storage. Easily restoke your fire by opening the Fuel Intake flap to give you direct control over the flame levels. Like I said before, I’m still amazed that this CampStove can recharge your USB devices while you cook food to recharge yourself.
