Ask Weird Al.

I hear he has an awesome hibachi dealer.

Option A: Get off your ass and go buy one.
Option B: Stay on your ass and order it off the internet.

It's a hibachi grill, not a Komodo dragon.

I like the basic original Hibachi, but it is what it is

Once it arrives, use it outside

Any grill you buy is going to be a Chinese POS.

If you want quality, you need to buy a couple tons of iron ore and a forge and smelt your own

Maybe subby doesn't have money.

Do you have chickens subby? Or a daughter? Maybe you could barter for the grill?
 
2017-09-23 01:08:56 PM  
See what your neighbors have.  See if they leave it outside.  See if they notice it's missing.

The problem with charcoal is that you have to buy the grill too.  That's how they get you.

How well can you twirl a spatula? Can you do two at a time? Also, do you have one of those little chef things that look like he's peeing that you fill with sake? This is important.

You can use it I doors if you turn on the bathroom fan

Why a hibachi? Those have pretty limited functionality when it comes to grilling. At the very least get a Weber, but I'm a big fan of the Big Green Egg.

Oh FFS, this has to be troll. Nobody on Fark can be this deficient in problem solving.

Maybe...

For that kind of money, I at least want a hand job to go with it.

Don't forget to line up your liquid oxygen supplier; you don't want to use lighter fluid - it makes everything taste funny.

I've smelt my own. Pfffew.

You also need a clever barbecue apron.  I suggest the
"Magilla G-riller" model...

How much if I don't want the hand job?

You could always steal a shopping cart, turn it over on its side, and build a fire inside it.

This is what I would do:

I bought one about 40 years ago, and really loved it. When it finally cracked after about 15 years, I replaced it with a succession of gas grills, which all disappointed me. Last year, after seeing the prices of the BGEs, I bought a 24" Pit Boss, on sale at Costco, for about $550, delivered.
I'm pretty happy with it.

By your use of "grill" I'm guessing you mean a shichirin, not a hibachi, in which case: you're welcome.

You're not going to get a reasonable answer here.

Just buy a shiatty 75 dollar Weber, swallow your sorrow, and rationalize that things could be slightly worse.

 The old folding hibachi Junior was the perfect size to take with you and because it's design it was really fast to light, folded up it became it's on chimney starter so no starter fluid. but I don't know if they even make it anymore. I would like one myself even though mostly use Webber. For a larger one I still think the most value for the money are the basic Webbers, but if you want to do more then things then stuff like the green egg etc.

A "folding hibachi to take with you" is not a reasonable response to someone asking about a hibachi for their new place.

If you plan to cook indoors with Charcoal you will run afoul of the watchdogs. I used to buy yakatori cooked on a hibachi right on the bar and a special hibachi shaped like a grapefruit juicer was used for a meal called Genghis Khan consisting of thin strips of meat and vegetables that was cooked by the customer right on his restaurant table, but that was another time and another country.

It may be for the better that we have watchdogs here since now the motto of the American griller is, "I can grill anything if I have enough beer."

A new griller without someone to guide him should regard his first grill as a learning experience and buy a small one. That way he will poison fewer people while he is learning his hobby.

Inspired by a stepson I started last year with a giant smoker/grill that was marked way down for the end of season sales. (those sales should be happening right now, by the way.) He turned out to have a limited repertoire but two other sons and a DIL have taken over and are using it twice a week.

The only other things I know are

If you're not using charcoal, why bother

If you're using charcoal lighter, don't invite me

and keep your grill clean. If you don't like scrubbing appoint a dishwasher or give up cooking.
