Preparing for a small BBQ can be a delightful adventure as you choose the menu, gather the ingredients, and set the stage for an enjoyable day. With a tabletop grill made for small outdoor spaces, you can enjoy anything from sizzling burgers and juicy steaks to flavorful vegetable skewers and mouthwatering desserts.

Aside from the food, hosting a small BBQ is also an opportunity to curate a welcoming vibe. Picture a cozy seating area and perhaps some fun outdoor games or music to keep the festivities going. The pleasant aroma of grilled delicacies wafting through the air and the sound of laughter filling the backyard will undoubtedly make your guests feel right at home.

Get ready to fire up your COBB portable grill, embrace the warmth of the summer sun, and embark on an adventure filled with delicious flavors and cherished moments. Create an unforgettable experience that brings people closer and celebrates the joy of good food and great company.

COBB Grill America makes all this possible with quality grills and accessories, so find out how to host a cozy gathering using your tabletop grill for small outdoor spaces.

Minimize the Guest List

We all know the saying: The more, the merrier! But this doesn’t always have to apply when planning to host a barbecue in a small space. There’s something truly special about gathering just a few of your loved ones, firing up the grill, and indulging in delicious food and great company.

Whether you’re planning a casual get-together or celebrating a special occasion, hosting a small BBQ is a fantastic way to create lasting memories and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of outdoor dining.

Choose Cozy Decor

This is the perfect chance to take a break from the pressure of impressing a crowd with elaborate, expensive decorations. Small barbecues are ideal for warm, inviting decor that illuminates your venue without breaking the bank.

Light up your small patio or backyard with fairy lights, hanging lanterns, or floating candles for something creative and pleasant. This will set the perfect scene and laid-back ambience for you to host a humble yet finger-licking grill that everyone can enjoy.

Prepare Food Beforehand

We often get carried away with cooking on the tabletop grill in small outdoor spaces, but this means less time to socialize. By preparing at least some of the food before guests arrive, you can save yourself the stress of chopping and dicing and enjoy the company and some nourishing conversation around the grill.

Try having your burger toppings already sliced, washed, and ready on a beautifully-crafted COBB cutting board, and your meat marinated, so you have more time for enjoyable grilling and dining.

Use a Quality Tabletop Grill

Use a high-quality tabletop grill for small outdoor spaces to make your mini-BBQ go smoothly. COBB Grill America presents the best options in portable outdoor grills, as they are made with durable materials and expertly designed to suit little nooks.

The COBB Premier comes in silver, black, or teal and comfortably grills for up to four people, while the COBB Supreme is small enough for a tiny space but is also big enough to cater for up to ten people. Buy the grill that suits your requirements, and you’re on your way to grilling pleasure.

Set up a Snack Table Away from the Grill

When using a tabletop grill for small outdoor spaces, remember that it must not be too close to objects or people to avoid being a fire hazard. The safest way to use your portable grill is to place it in an open area with lots of empty space around it. A great way to avoid people crowding around the grill is to set up a snack table away from the grill to give you ample space.
