It's hard to have a decent barbecue in Japan: in the cities, most people live in very small apartments without gardens. So how can it be that grilling meat over charcoals or electric grills (aka "yakiniku") has become one of Japan's favorite dishes since WWII? Mostly thanks to appliances like this Iwatani Hot Plate Yakiniku BBQ Cooker Set.
What you get with this set is a very portable (it folds up completely) gas cartridge stove with a grated plate where you can lay your meat and vegetables. It takes a couple of minutes to open and set up, pop in a gas cartridge, and start barbecuing, whether indoors or outdoors. There is an integrated wind guard so a breeze won't affect the cooker flames, plus the unit has a compact lid and comes in two stylish colors.
