The Nomad moveable grill is to grills what the Yeti is to coolers: higher in each manner, however costly. That each firms hail from Texas is a coincidence. In all probability.

The Nomad is a brand new tackle what a conveyable grill must be, and even could be. It is refreshingly low-tech and compact, it cooks phenomenally nicely, and in contrast to many “moveable” grills, it could actually genuinely go anyplace. It is as near an ideal moveable grill as something I’ve examined.

Wandering Grill

I’ve examined loads of moveable grills over time, and the Nomad is hands-down the best-built moveable grill I’ve ever used.

From the perforated, anodized-aluminum shell to the cast-aluminum grill packing containers inside, all the pieces concerning the Nomad feels stable and nicely made. The heavy-duty handles and latches are robust. Even the grilling floor is held solidly in place with high-temperature-resistant magnets.

The design of the Nomad is totally different than most grills. It is basically a suitcase, which suggests you’ll be able to carry it with one hand. The stable development would not make it gentle—it is 28 kilos with one grill grate, 31 kilos for those who choose to purchase a second—nevertheless it’s not awkward and unwieldy like our present top-pick moveable charcoal grill, Weber’s Jumbo Joe ($89).

When collapsed in suitcase carrying place, the Nomad appears like a cross between one thing Jason Bourne would use as a carry-on and a few sort of dwell animal cage. I instructed one one who requested about it that my children had a pet wolverine. For a second, I believe they believed me.

When you get the place you are going along with your Nomad, you’ll be able to set it up on any flat floor. Due to the engineering behind the grill, it by no means will get scorching sufficient to hurt wooden, steel, stone, or sand. I’d not put it on a plastic desk, nevertheless it ought to work high-quality in all places out of your truck tailgate to your native park’s picnic desk. Whereas flat on the bottom is probably the most awkward technique to cook dinner on the Nomad, it additionally works.

The Nomad can be pleasingly low-tech. There aren’t any Bluetooth temp sensors, apps, or anything. That is grilling of the old fashioned, relying in your abilities and expertise. The Nomad does have a built-in thermometer on the left facet of the “prime.” however there isn’t a digital something right here. Fortunately.

Outer Area

For typical high-temp grilling, the Nomad folds open, supplying you with two sides to grill on. The catch is that the grill for the second facet is bought individually and can set you again one other $130. In case you get the additional grill grate, you will have whole of 425 sq. inches of cooking floor. Nomad claims that is sufficient for 30 burgers. I didn’t check the second grill grate, however cooking single-sided there was sufficient room for 12 burgers at a few quarter-pound every.

The opposite factor to notice is that the grill floor is cambered, which implies that for those who get each grills, you will have to flip one over earlier than closing it up. Nomad additionally factors out which you could cook dinner with the grill floor flipped over, making it one thing like a veggie basket.
