Grilletto 'Son of Hibachi' Portable BBQ

My trusty Aldi Porta-BBQ has finally given up the ghost after 5yrs of marine life a numerous trips to the Scillies being bounced about in a rubble bucket.
Considering splashing out this time on a 'Son of Hibachi' Gucci BBQ.

Anyone have any experince of one?

The Cobb is my normal choice for portable bbq's but this seems pretty interesting . I don't know if it will be as good as the Cobb for cooking on but it looks to easily beat it hands down when it comes to stowing it.

Son of Hibachi looks very cool. It's got rave reviews on Greenfingers but seems to be out if stock everywhere.

Hi, sorry to resurrect this, I just wondered how you're getting on with this thing. How does it compare to the Cobb? We're seriously considering getting one.

Anyone have any experience of alternatives?

Ta muchly
