For Truly Excellent Summertime Grilling, Invest in a Mangal

The mangal is essential for cooking skewers across Eurasia, but the simple, portable, dependable grill deserves more love

Before the days of frantic airport security, my grandfather flew from Russia across the Atlantic with a bulky makeshift plywood container. It was bound with bundles of rope, its sides encased in duct tape. I remember, as a kid, wondering with wide-eyed bewilderment at the mysterious package. When the first sunny weekend rolled around, we loaded the box into the trunk of the family car and headed for a nearby park, where the contents were finally revealed. It was a grill, or, more precisely, it was our mangal.
