School is right around the corner, but there is still time to enjoy summer and all its traditions, and that includes grilling out.

Call it a grill for those on the go.

It is called the "EZ Grill."

And unlike other portable grills, this is a "one use" grill that you can take pretty much anywhere: the beach, the park, tailgaters or your own backyard.

But would the EZ Grill get burned in our As Seen on TV test?

Obviously, my big grill will not fit on my patio table and the EZ Grill comes in one easy, compact container. You open it up and then it comes out of its box and, underneath the box, is the stand.

If you look inside you have these tissue papers that are actually soaked in some type of lighter fluid. You just light the ends of those. And underneath are these bags filled with environmentally friendly coal of some sort.

The manufacturer said it takes about 15 minutes for the flames to die down and the coals to get that charred looked to them, so you can start cooking your food.

It has been more than 15 minutes. I have four burgers and four brats. That is probably enough to feed a family of four or five. The only downside is, unlike a Hibachi or a Webber or a gas grill, you have a top to close so the heat circulates.

After about ten minutes, we have some brats that are awfully close to being done. They are cooking nicely.

After 45 minutes, we have some nicely done brats and burgers, just like if you were sitting at a tailgater.

The EZ Grill is really easy to use and I had a fairly decent sized meal put on here of four burgers and four brats.

It would be great for the beach or the tailgater, or just going to the park. With EZ Grill, you are cooking and it gets the thumbs up.

I paid $13 for my EZ Grill at CVS. You can find them in a lot of stores and on the internet.
