Me too! There are some cool old ones out there. I have also come across some new / custom made ones that look neat but not $400 plus neat.

I have set up a row of coals in the center and used a piece of bent rod to hold metal skewers over the meat.

I really enjoy yakitori.

Every once in a while I see cast iron ones pop up on Craigslist in the Pacific Northwest. Ones that stand out to me have “KONRO” cast on them. Some are pot shaped and others traditional style.

I’ve got a vintage Lodge Sportsman Hibachi

There’s one for sale near me. Haven’t really thought about these at all.
Check out what I found on Facebook Marketplace. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/320900475329478/

Interesting. They do resemble one another.  For some reason I thought the PK’s were all cast aluminum.
