Where to find a charcoal grill?

I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions as to where to find a charcoal grill. I just moved here from the US and am in desperate need of a grill!

There's a store on Seefeldstrasse/Kreuzstrasse that carries them, but 300-400 CHF for a charcoal grill seems a little ridiculous?!

Re: Where to find a charcoal grill?

Big Coop and big Migros stores sell grills in (I think) their garden departments.

If you are only in need of a small charcoal grill, try Landi - they should have some cheaper alternatives, but they not located in or near the cities.

Here a direct link - offers from CHF 39.- up to whatever you want to spend

I was jsut messing with you. I don't know the going rate for a charcoal grill...but you ought to checkout a Swiss version of Home Depot called "Coop Bau +Hobby" there you will certainly find a cheaper one.

Haha...fair enough. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll check them out. Thinking of Home Depot doesn't help with the home sickness.

Re: Where to find a charcoal grill?

Don't want to sound like a party pooper, but check your rental contract if you're planning on using it on your balcony (if you're not on the top floor).

Re: Where to find a charcoal grill?

I'm on the top floor...but am an untermieten (sp?). I checked with the tenant I'm leasing from and she said it is ok. So I'll take her word for it...

A 6 piece sounds amazing...especially with a side of cornbread and okra!

Re: Where to find a charcoal grill?

Fust has a reasonable range, including Weber grills.

Prices will always be higher than the US, but that's true of most things here.

Walked past Fust the other day and it's very pricey even for a standard charcoal grill.

Re: Where to find a charcoal grill?

I saw a very basic one at Jumbo yesterday selling for CHF 39.95.
I suspect the quality is pretty abysmal at that price.
