Though mobile camping grills have existed for decades, the last few years have played host to a myriad of new, increasingly portable and efficient model designs. One of the more novel takes on the segment comes from Texas-based startup, NOMAD with its new grill and smoker model.
Taking the form of a standard suitcase when closed (measuring 20.5” x 13.5” x 9.5”), the NOMAD Grill & Smoker opens up to provide two cooking surfaces with a collective 425-square-inches of cooking space (when using a second grate, which is sold separately). Boasting anodized cast aluminum construction and cast and cambered stainless steel grates, the grill calls on an advanced patented multi-layer design that retains immense heat, while allowing for airflow control via magnetic vent sliders. This item can also be utilized as a grill, or a smoker, where it can accommodate some 30 hamburgers patties while configured as the former or two full racks of ribs when set up as the latter. The unit also sports high-heat-resistant silicone bumpers and an ultra-precise integrated Tel-Tru MFG’s bimetal thermometer. Available now, the NOMAD Grill & Smoker starts at $599.
