- We're back and we're grilling meat again.
I know what you're thinking.
You can leave a comment about that.
But it's the Homping Grill.
This is a charcoal table top grill
that is supposed to reduce smoking by 90%.
Portable, very easy to use.
And I'm very skeptical because with charcoal
you shouldn't really obviously use it indoors.
Because it smokes a lot,
the smell, et cetera, et cetera.
But if it works,
dude that's amazing.
Then that means I can do Korean barbecue at home
with real charcoal indoors.
If it doesn't really work indoors
then I don't see the point of having this
just for outdoor use because in that case
why does it need to be smokeless?
For the whopping price of $200,
that wouldn't really make sense.
You could just use a regular grill.
Let's see if it works.
You don't need electricity.
It's battery operated and that's for the fan.
It's already pretty much assembled for you.
This is the grill.
This is where you put in your charcoal.
This is where your fat will drip and live.
And it looks like the fan is inside this device.
It's very very simple.
Kind of weird because where is the smoke actually going?
All of the marketing around this.
The videos and et cetera you see online,
they're using this indoors.
But obviously on the manual
it says for outdoor use only.
And that's probably because of liability issues.
So this product's made in Korea.
They wanted to build a product
that uses charcoal that you can use
on your tabletop at home.
But we'll see how it does.
Then we'll put it right in here.
And the fan is blowing into the charcoal
so the more air that's blowing on the charcoal,
the hotter the grill is getting.
So it's only controlled element for the exhaust and the fan.
Top on, our grill on.
And then let this preheat before adding our protein.
To test this, we're gonna do burgers
'cause it has a lot of fat so we wanna test the smoke level.
And then we'll do some Korean barbecue
because I feel like this is built for Korean barbecue.
A little bit of pepper.
Then we're just gonna go for it.
Is it suctioning?
I don't think it's suctioning.
This just seems like a normal grill.
But to put that to test,
let's turn the fan lower and see
if there's more smoke happening.
And then you turn on the fan.
Yeah this is not smokeless.
So it reduces it by like 20% maybe.
But I wouldn't say 90%.
There needs to be some sort of technology
that like really pulls it with an exhaust.
Like there needs to be somewhere where the smoke is going.
But I don't feel it suctioning either.
Another concern that I do have
is that this outer ring of the grill,
it's not hot at all.
So you're gonna get uneven cooking.
The fat from the burger is dripping onto the charcoal
and creating a ton of smoke right now.
It's definitely not delivering on the smokelessness.
So I'm a little bit disappointed.
So we're gonna do the Korean barbecue and call it a day.
And at least I can enjoy some short ribs.
The placement where you put the charcoal
is just not big enough to add
more charcoal in the first place.
And if you see we filled the placement
to the max with charcoal.
And it's still not that hot.
And I hate when you see little bubbles happening
when you're grilling meat because
that just means that it's boiling.
It's not really searing that well.
Just a weird design.
I think the only thing that I like about this so far
is that it's cute.
It's really not hot so you could kind of like walk around.
And be like hey, do you want some Korean barbecue
while it's grilling?
Can walk around with the charcoal grill.
I wouldn't recommend doing this at home though.
it's still charcoal in there.
With a normal charcoal grill,
there's normal like a lever on the bottom
where all the dust falls out of
and you can like kind of help it.
But with this, you have to take the top off,
then remove all the charcoal,
and then remove all that dust.
And then put it back in.
It's just a lot of work
for something that's so simple.
I'm gonna have a bite but it really doesn't matter
because I'm not the biggest fan of this.
But that's good, yummy.
I can't see why this is necessary
over a regular charcoal grill.
You should not use this indoors at all
so the manual was right.
Do not use this indoors.
It's completely smoky.
So this is the second Korean barbecue product
that I've tried testing and as much as I want
it to work it just fell so short and I'm really sad.
So my hunt continues for the best
indoor Korean barbecue product.
Let me know in the comments.
Maybe you guys know what the best indoor grilling
Thanks for watching guys.
