Officially? Probably not. But what's to stop you from doing it anyway?

Practically, the weight and inconvenience of bringing the grill/charcoal may be an issue, though.

Get a George Forman. Make sure the voltage is correct. Maybe buy from Amazon in Europe. Or buy on your way in Asia. Also get an adapter so that you will be able to plug it in.

George Foreman ≠ charcoal grill. Not even close.

They dont allow any fires on the OWV. Its officially a fire free.... [per the butler]. If you'll do it on the porch it's pretty hard to conceal.

I cooked with a burner and sandwich maker and  left the door slightly open  during the cooking  so the smoke can escape. There are smoke detectors in the units.

All their outlets are 220V, even though you can plug in your US outlet it's still 220V, except one outlet in the bathroom wich runs 110V. Make sure your appliance is compatible with 220V, if not it'll most likely blow up.

I bought Israeli applinces with adaptors.

There are outlets behind the counter in the bar but make sure the switch is turned on.

If your staying for shabbos ask them to contact engineering to remove a small magnetic strip on the fridge so it would not activate upon opening.

Dont leave your bungalow late at night there is a sensor wich activates the outdoor lighting after a certain time [past 10 I believe, but not exactly sure]

I wouldn't let the butler in while cooking. The cleaning service is no issue, they dont chap a eisek. So if your worried just the Do Not Disturb sign on the door.

I had a tasty cholent on shabbos!!!

Always praying for delayed baggage.

Pretty cool grill...
It is. Not super light, but not too heavy. Fits anywhere. And pretty cheap. Problem is I love my Weber chimney, hate BBQing without it. And that thing is very bulky.


Though if they might give me problems, I'll probably just bring takeout instead

IINM you can buy a converter to use 110 appliances with a 220 outlet. The adapters just change which prongs you use, but an adapter should solve both problems.

I live in Israel, I know how this stuff works. But I'll probably just bring prepared food

I like to BBQ on vacation. I don't like to cook on vacation

Just go for it and don't ask. Worst case you'll find another place to grill.

Would a 10:15am flight out of MLE be a problem to make?
