You can't fake quality any more than you can fake a good meal.

William S. Burroughs
I’ve always considered myself a home chef, and grilling is no exception. It never crossed my mind that grilling is unlike most entertaining because the host is off on their own. Until I visited Japan a few years back and discovered yakitori grilling. This traditional method for grilling chicken skewers isn’t just a dining experience. It brings the whole party together around the grill.

The idea for YAK Grills was born. After a year-long journey, I’m proud to introduce group grilling to the rest of the world with a line of solid, tabletop safe hibachi-style grills and accessories.

I hope you’ll enjoy grilling together as much as you do eating with company.
