    …is that a grill-shaped pan I see? on a stovetop? Does that work well and are they hard to find or expensive or some other darn thing?

    Buy a cast-iron pan. Unless you want a fancy French one, they aren’t expensive. You can buy one for about $20 at amazon or most large retailers. It does a very nice job of filling in for a grill. You can also pre-heat the pan on the stovetop and then broil it in the oven to cut way down on splattering grease and avoid smelling up the house/apartment.
