From our Consumer Tips and Patio Parties Department, Blog is here today to introduce you to the newest member of our household at Magic House. Please welcome Son of Hibachi!
SoH: Ah yes, it is funny, you think?
Blog: Very clever and late-night-TV-infomercial-worthy, Son. So by way of introduction, what brings you to Magic House aka Chez Diana?
SoH: Well, you see Magic House patio has fine gas grill, very fine, but nothing which might incorporate charcoal briquets. Diana recently enjoyed her daughter's Smokey Joe cooking with mesquite charcoals. Big tasty.
Blog: I see, so she had a hankering for that wood smoke flavor.
SoH: Yes, yes! And for hibachi cooking of her childhood, you know how in 1960s American suburbs, they love hibachi. And from the Interweb she learned about me!
SoH: I am happy to tell whole story of use of Son of Hibachi, Blog. You begin by unfolding Son to open position, like so. And put charcoals on each side, like so, and some in center tray with little firestarter maybe. Put on some lighter fluid, good douse. Instruction say not needing to put on side coals, but maybe better you do.
SoH: Light coals in center tray, then fold up Son of Hibachi. Clip at top like in picture, this all makes chimney effect to light charcoals! Very clever!
Blog: That IS clever. And may I say, you're sort of an Asian Billy Mays, aren't you?
SoH: Billy Mays, greatest master of all infomercials! I humbly thank you for comparison.
SoH: Yes, yes. Maybe ten minutes, Son is ready. Open up, spread coals out, maybe rearrange. Then put on food, like tasty tequila lime chicken prepared by Diana.
SoH: Yes, you see in photo, result of cooking is tasty grilled tequila lime chicken. But now Son of Hibachi do even more crazy stuff!
Blog: Not anything like on those wacky Japanese game shows where people jump through weird cutout shapes to avoid being knocked into the pool...
Blog: Wow! Do you need an oven mitt to do that?
SoH: Not even. Aluminum legs and handles stay cool to touch. Then, in goes Son of Hibachi to Snuff-Out Pouch! That finish job, and also you can right away put Son in garage or car.
Blog: While you're still roasting hot?
Blog: Sweet! And what might I have to pay to get my own Son of Hibachi, Son?
SoH: Order straight from website www.sonofhibachi.com, 75 American bucks, free shipping! Very heavy with cast iron, but still, shipping free!
Blog: Well, I'm sold and I know Diana is too. Otherwise why would she have me interview you for no remuneration from the manufacturer, just as a service to our grilled-meat loving readers?
SoH: Good for corn too! Very good for corn and veggies! 170 square inches for any food that won't fall through slots.
Blog: So you won't be good for making bacon spaghetti for Diana's dad next weekend, then.
SoH: Not so good for spaghetti, fall through slots.
Blog: Sort of like on those wacky Japanese game shows where people jump through weird cutout shapes to avoid being knocked into the pool.
SoH: Blog very funny guy. Very funny anthropomorphized being with masculine vibe.
Blog: Right back atcha, Son.
