LotusGrill Portable Charcoal BBQ
The LotusGrill is an energy and time saving portable charcoal BBQ. Its unique design allows you to barbeque with minimal fuss and maximum flavour.
This item includes the LotusGrill BBQ, Carry Bag, 4 x AA Batteries, and instruction manual.
You will also need:
- A bag of lump charcoal - specifically made for use with the Lotus Grill.
- Ethanol starter gel - to safely and quickly start the Lotus Grill.
- Glass lid with thermometer - for extra heat retention.
- Hood with thermometer - for slow roasting & baking larger dishes.
- Pizza / grill stone - to create a portable pizza oven (needs Hood).
The Most Efficient Charcoal BBQ
The LotusGrill uses a maximum of just 250 grams of charcoal. Given its efficient design, this is more than enough for a few batches of food cooked over about 45 minutes. We’ve managed to cook steaks, vegetable skewers, and sausages, all in the one session. The charcoal canister can also be topped up, so you can keep cooking for longer, if needed.
The Lotus Grill fits about four decent sized steaks on its 32cm diameter grill. If you're cooking for a big group, you can cook in a few batches.
Get Cooking in Record Time
The LotusGrill BBQ uses a built-in fan to create a ‘bellows effect’ so you'll be grilling in under 5 minutes. This battery operated fan also allows control of the heat levels with the variable speed dial. Compare this to other charcoal barbeques like a Weber, which need at least 30 minutes before they’re ready to cook on.
How to fire up your LotusGrill.
Safe & 'Smokeless' Grilling
The outside of the LotusGrill stays cool to touch thanks to its double-layered construction. Additionally, the charcoal burns inside a closed mesh container so nothing can fall out. Even if you turn it upside down, or accidentally kick it over. This design also prevents fat and oil from dripping directly onto the coals, which reduces the amount of smoke generated.
A Neat & Portable Charcoal BBQ
The LotusGrill weighs less than 4kg and comes with a handy carry bag. It's perfect for picnics, camping, and for smaller spaces like apartment balconies.
The Lotus Grill can be packed away neatly after use, great for those who don't have room for a huge BBQ. You can even cook at the table - Korean BBQ style!
LotusGrill makes barbecuing quick, clean, and efficient.
You'll Never Own a BBQ Easier to Clean
The components of the LotusGrill can be quickly and easily dismantled for cleaning. The grill grid and inner bowl are also dishwasher safe. Compare that to your typical cockroach infested outdoor gas or 'swap-and-go' LPG BBQ!

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use regular charcoal heat beads or briquettes with the LotusGrill?
No - regular charcoal products are not recommended for use with the LotusGrill. They burn too slowly and do not provide a useful amount of heat (we tried!). It must be Lump Charcoal like this and in small enough pieces to fit inside the LotusGrill canister.
How long is the burn time?
Combustion time varies between 40 and 90 minutes depending on the charcoal used, and fan speed. You can slow roast your food using the optional LotusGrill Hood.
