"If you’re a fan of charcoal grilling, this portable grill is the easiest method we’ve ever tested. Similar to the concept of a Keurig coffee maker, the Hero system uses charcoal 'pods'."
What is the HERO?
The HERO™ Grill System is the world's first charcoal grill to simplify grilling by utilizing a biodegradable, charcoal pod. We combined a sturdy and reusable, non-stick grill with our innovative, first-in-class Lavalite™ Charcoal Pods to make grilling simple, clean and portable.
Why use a HERO?It has never been easier to unlock the flavor only charcoal grilling can provide. The HERO™ Grill System simplifies charcoal grilling by utilizing HERO™ Lavlite™ Charcoal Pods. Our pods are easier to light, and they're clean, so you can forget about dealing with messy traditional charcoal and petroleum-based lighter fluids. The entire system easily stores in your kitchen, is dishwasher friendly, and is built to outperform traditional portable charcoal grills. The HERO is perfect for apartment porches and small outdoor spaces. Its compact design and portability also makes it easy to stow in the boat or car for camping trips or even a quick trip to the park.

Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I ordered the Hero grill after reading an article about the best portable grills. I had a short camping trip coming up and wanted to replace my old portable grill due to how messy it was to travel with and the poor cooking results. The Hero grill arrived quickly and was exactly as described. I was immediately impressed with how much thought went into designing the product and it all felt well made. The cooking experience was just as impressive. Light the pod, slide it into place and in about 10 minutes you are ready to cook. For my first cook, I grilled buffalo wings and was very satisfied with the results. They turned out far better than anything that came off my old grill. Cleanup was pretty impressive also. After everything cools, wash the cooking grate and store back in the case, then toss the biodegradable pod in the trash. Done. No ash residue, no cooking smells, and no rusty metal to go back into the car.
Bought it for the boat to replace the boat bbq best decision ever easy to store and clean up highly recommend
HERO Grill System Starter Pack (Grill System + Five Pods)
I purchased a HERO grill after selling my big house and downsizing to an apartment. It turns out to be the perfect equipment to carry down to the back courtyard when we feel like grilling. It is compact and easy to clean up. I don’t miss the old Weber I left behind!
Great product, well made, performs well. I love the freedom it provides to take it many places where you wouldn't be allowed to build a fire. It clearly doesn't fit every purpose, but it does what is was designed to do very well. Burn time is better than advertised but can be reduced in high winds. Lights easily and reaches cooking temp in no time at all. Just need a discounted way to order refills.
