    It’s “mangal”, not “mangel”, and one important aspect is that the equipment used is cheap and minimal, kind of the inverse of David Brooks’ Patio Man: wood is better than charcoal; blowing on the flames better than fanning them; and of course, materials such as liquid paraffin are strictly for the “partzifluchan” (weeny). That said, there’s no shame in prepping the food.

    To mangal in a public park is a poor show; the more wild and Biblical the setting, the better – but don’t be seen with it or you’ll be considered more faux than the louts in the park. (Leave No Trace)

    Not complete without Turkish coffee boiled in a “finjan” coffeepot.
