Hot Box

This Cube Will Cook Your Steak

None Labor Day is right around the corner, but your plans are still up in the air.

Right now, it’s a toss-up between Fiji and Jamaica. Either way, you’re going to want to barbecue. And either way, packing a bag of charcoal with your linen suit is not an option.

Luckily, there’s this: the Grillcube, a tiny yet powerful flame in the form of a small cardboard box, coming soon from Estonia.

Let’s talk about what this thing doesn’t need. It doesn’t need charcoal. It doesn’t need lighter fluid. It doesn’t need your brother-in-law to act as backseat grill master. All you’ll have to do (once it’s available from Estonia, mind you) is find a grill and place the box in the bottom. Light the box with a Zippo or a match, cover it with the grate and crack open a beer. Ten minutes later, you’ll throw your steaks over what is now a pile of flaming embers, which will burn for another 35 minutes.

But it gets even better. Because it’s chemical-free and burns clean, this box should help you taste your grass-fed beef a little bit more than with your usual lighter-fluid-drenched-briquettes system.

Or your usual go-to-a-restaurant system.
