Welcome to The Mabel BBQ’s guide to finding the best hibachi grill for you.
In this guide we are going to present the criteria that we believe to be most important when choosing a cast iron hibachi grill, followed by our top three best hibachi grills.
To start us off, take a look at our interactive table below, showing the key facts about the very best that the market has to offer.
Let’s get into it.
When it comes to summer grilling a good hibachi is a big bonus. With their intense heat and compact size, mini hibachi grills make the perfect campground barbecue, easily toted from place to place and capable of cooking small amounts of food quickly and efficiently.
With so many hibachis on the market these days, it’s hard to know which one is the best. While for the most part they can be pretty inexpensive, the latest hibachis boast a fairly wide range of features that, depending on your needs, can make campground cooking or even backyard barbecuing that much more enjoyable.
We’ve put together a list of the top three best hibachis that we’ve seen out there on the market to help you select your next hibachi grill:

1. Cajun Cookware Grills Cast Iron Hibachi Grill
This mini-hibachi grill is fantastic for transporting; at just 40 lbs it’s a snap to carry around; with its round pre-seasoned cast iron grilling surface it’s tiny at 15 inches across and 8 inches tall.
While the ultra-compact grilling surface may not be the best choice in all situations, it’s the price of convenience for those who adore their Cajun grill for its portability; admirers also report that for all its small size, the grill actually seems much larger than expected when in use.
It’s also very well known for being quite solid; on top of that it cleans up very easily and cooks food fast with beautiful grill marks.
2. Marsh Allen Cast Iron Hibachi Charcoal Grill
With three adjustable cooking grids and rising curves on the side of each grid, this little cast iron hibachi makes it easy to cook quickly and conveniently while keeping your food firmly in place; with 157 square inches of cooking space it’s not the biggest hibachi on the market but it handles itself well.
One of the most important features of course is the adjustable vents which allow for some control over the heat of the charcoal; as hibachis are known for their intense heat, this feature is vital for allowing the best cooking conditions.
It’s also easy to adjust, with wood handles along the side and on each grid to enable a change in position without anyone getting hurt.
This is indeed a wonderful little grill, while also managing to be very inexpensive.
3. Lodge L410 Pre-Seasoned Sportsman’s Charcoal Grill
This grill is pretty deluxe, boasting a pre-seasoned 17 ¼ by 9 cooking grate and a charcoal-fueled cast iron grill; it provides easy access to coals through a back-end downward opening door and has a draft door to help keep the heat under control.
It measures 19 by 10 by 8 ¼ inches and is easily washable by hand and it can also be placed at two adjustable heights in order to control cooking speed, which is amazing.

So no matter what you’re looking for in a hibachi, whether it’s enhanced portability, a larger cooking surface or convenient heat control, one of these three options should serve you well.
Hibachis have come a long way and they’re still one of the best methods of cooking up smaller amounts of food in a hurry; they’re also sturdy and durable so investing in the right hibachi should keep you covered for a long time to come.
