Visit a yakitori parlor in Japan and you’ll see in action a small, long, skinny, screaming-hot charcoal-burning grill called a hibachi. But you don’t have to journey that far: One of the world’s best-performing hibachis is made in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, by the more-than-century-old Lodge Manufacturing Company. Fabricated from quarter-inch-thick cast iron, which retains and radiates the heat, the Lodge hibachi boasts a handy hopper for adding fresh coals and a sliding vent for heat control. Set one up in the center of a backyard table so that your guests can grill the way they like. Also great for tailgates and fire escapes.
Founded in 1896, Lodge has created a legacy of quality cookware that has thrived through two World Wars and the Great Depression. Even during the hard times of the 1930’s, Lodge found ways to keep employees above water. Novelty items such as cast iron garden gnomes and animals were produced and sold to keep the furnaces burning and the paychecks issued. Today, the company continues to evolve product lines and improve manufacturing methods. With the proliferation of television cooking shows and a rise in consumer demand, Lodge has advanced the culinary lives of chefs and campers alike with its brutally tough pans. South Pittsburg, TN is where they call home.
