We recently got back from on a quick trip to Caspers Wilderness Park located in the eastern part of Orange County, CA.
First off, if you are in the Orange County greater area and have never been let us tell you, it's a nice little hidden gym. If you are looking to escape the busyness of city life, come and enjoy the greenery and beautiful trails that Caspers has to offer. Caution however...watch out for mountain lions as that is what the park rangers told us. The reason we ventured out to Caspers is to field test a few different products that we added to The Van Mart. Let us introduce you to the product we are going over today.
THE SKOTTLE GRILL BY TEMBO TUSK
The Tembo Tusk Skottle is a portable grill that comes conveniently packed in a carrying case along with four adjustable legs. The skottle is perfect for anyone that doesn't have a built-in kitchen in their van and is looking to take their culinary skills off grid.
REASONS WHY WE LOVE THIS GRILL
1. The Portability
This grill and all necessary parts seamlessly fit into a circular carrying case taking up very little room in your van. It is about the size of a lounge pillow for reference and can easily be carried from point A to B with ease. You can even sling it on your back using the straps which make it like a back pack. Convenient!
2. The Ease of Set-Up
Once you find a spot to setup, it takes about 2 minutes to assemble all the skottle before you ignite and start cooking! All you have to do is take out the skottle, screw in the legs, attach the propane (sold separately) and your good to go! We loved how easy it was to adjust the legs to cook at our desired height. Bonus points on this feature.
3. Spacious Cooking Area
Don't let the word portable fool you into thinking you wont be able to cook a sizable meal. Pictured below is us whipping up some eggs & as you can see there is more than enough room to cook more. Plus this product puts out some heat. We were surprised at how effectively the skottle cooked in a timely manner.
4. Easy to Clean
Cleaning up without a kitchen can be tough. Luckily you don't need a full kitchen to clean this grill. To clean your skottle pour enough water on grill to cover the surface, turn on the burner until water is hot and let sit for 10 minutes. Then you can use a rounded spatula to scrape off any remnants of food that may have stuck, drain & reheat the pan. After it is hot again all you do is pour a little water and flash steam the pan. After that, you can use a paper towel and apply a light coat of cooking oil to the pan so you are ready for your next meal.
