Pocket-sized barbeque grill.

Now that the clocks have sprung forward and the weather’s warming a little, it might be time to start preparing for those summer barbeques we all love so much. I’m sorry to all those vegetarians out here, but I can’t wait to taste those barbeque-grilled steaks and flame-cooked chicken wings!

Anyway, the coolest gadgets team have got together to come up with a few ideas to help you start preparing for those long summer evenings and finally chase away those winter blues.

Everyone loves a barbeque party in the summertime. The problem with regular barbeque grills is that they’re just too bulky and messy to take in the car, never mind a rucksack if you’re backpacking. So here’s a great idea from iwantoneofthose;

it’s a barbeque grill that rolls up into a pocket-sized roll that’s just 29 x 2 cm.

Firstly, I’m not sure how it supports the weight of anything you want to cook. Also, I’m not sure how much weight you can put on the thing before it collapses in on itself, but it looks stable enough in the photo; so I’m convinced!

Another gadget that barbeque fans might find handy is this fork with a built-in thermometer. I’m sure you know the story; you start the barbeque party too late, and have already opened the tins of beer too early. As the sun sets, and judgement begins to fail, you might later regret eating those chicken thighs that were burnt on the outside and red raw in the middle.

With the fork with a built in thermometer, all the guesswork goes out of waiting. Of course it comes with a lighted LED display.

Have a good summer – we will!

  1. That does look cool for BBQs on the go.

    I actually had my first BBQ at the weekend, managed to cremate the sausages but the steak was about edible. That does

  2. Their website says:

    The grill can handle a whopping 560g of food placed upon it.

    That’s more than a pound!

  3. But Jeff, I still haven’t figured it out; if it rolls up, the bars must be flexible, so why doesn’t it collapse in the middle under it’s own weight? I think I’ll have to ask the manufacturers to send me one to review it properly!

  4. Hey I think I know how this works. The two tubes on the side are different sizes. When it is disasembled (sp?) the smaller of the two tubes slides into the larger, then all of the grill pieces and the legs are stored inside both tubes. Pretty clever, IMHO. I gotta make one of these for the trips.

  5. I’ve never seen anything like that before, but it looks cool as hell. That would do just fine when I take the kids camping.
