The GoBQ Is A Foldable, Ultra-Portable Grill

gobq-1

Being able to carry your BBQ anywhere you go seems to be an increasingly popular ability these days, as seen in products like the BBQ Briefcase we covered a while back. But even that one didn’t have the ability to roll up into a bag, like the GoBQ does. Made from a fireproof silicone-coated fiberglass fabric that can handle temperatures up to 1,200° F (648° C), the 8 lbs. GoBQ unfurls into a “14 x 14-in (35.6 x 35.6-cm) cooking grate that offers more cooking area than the Weber Smokey Joe 14.” A chain-mail like charcoal holder keeps your heat source well ventilated, and the folding legs to which the entire assembly attaches are easily collapsed and transported. The special fabric is also insulating, helping to keep more of the heat within and keeping the outside cooler; we still wouldn’t touch it when grilling, but you get the idea. It’s a good, convenient way to transport your grilling gear anywhere you want, and at $120, is priced just right. If fully-funded, you can expect to catch the tail end of Summer 2015, with a projected shipment date of August.

The Briefcase BBQ Is Stealthy, Practical

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 10.49.49 PM

BBQs come in all shapes and sizes, and not all of them are practical. The typical round grills you see in parks during the summer are just fine for cooking your meats. But not so great at stacking efficiently in the trunk, and even less so at being incognito. Not that we can think of a single good reason for why’d you’d want to walk around with a BBQ disguised as a briefcase, but now you know this product exists. The Briefcase BBQ is a 12 1/2″ H x 8 3/4″ W x 2 3/4″ D portable grill that weighs 4lbs., and uses charcoal for fuel. It’s $79.

For Late Night BBQs: Flashlight Grilling Spatula

Flashlight Grilling Spatula

 

I’m sure you’ve felt it once or twice in your life. When it’s dark out and the night is young, that craving, that yearning for meat…cooking on the grill, with the smell of spices and barbecue sauce filling the air. Having a late-night barbecue isn’t the most practical thing in the world, but a utensil that might just help you make it happen is the Grillight.

It’s a stainless steel grilling spatula with a built-in LED light so you can see what you’re cooking, even in the dark. Use it in the morning, use it in the afternoon, use it when the sun’s about to set and when you need extra illumination. The Grillight is dishwasher safe and runs on two AA batteries.

It’s available online for $34.95.

This Is A Handheld Food Smoker

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 9.28.55 PM

BBQ traditionalists will probably have a fit at the sight of the Handheld Food Smoker, but having had the chance to try a meal prepared with a similar contraption, we’d like to tell them to keep a open mind. Clearly you won’t be making any fall-off-the-bone ribs with this smoke, seeing as it’s cold. But you will be able to infuse a bit of a smoky flavour into some meals, just as they’re about to be served. The device holds smouldering wood shavings, the smoke from which is blown through a tube thanks to its internal fan. If you get a little dome to go over your plate, you can fill it up with smoke and serve it like that to your guests. They’ll be delighted as they pull the dome off and the smoke spills out, while the food will pick up a tiny bit of the scent. How much flavour it actually picks up, however, really depends on the type of food being served; in our experience, we noticed that leafy greens absorb it a lot while the salmon tartare they were mixed with ended up tasting just like salmon.

$99 gets you the smoker, as well as a “1/2-oz jar of 100% natural kiln-dried hickory and applewood shavings harvested from renewable California orchards, four AA batteries, and a stand.”

Jag Grill BBQ Table Is Awesome

jaggrill_small

If you don’t think that owning this table will crown you king of the neighbourhood, you better think again. The Jag Grill is an octagonal table with an integrated firepit and dome, and grilling stations at every seat. Throw the heavy meats in the center, while each one of your guests is free to work on his sides to his heart’s content. Adequate airflow means your coals burn hot, while a modular design makes for easier cleaning. Just make sure to strengthen the locks on the door leading to your backyard, as yu may end up with a few more guests than anticipated.

It’s $2,500, although the website seems to be having some troubles at the moment.

Bison Airlighter Turbocharges Your Firestarting

Airlighter1350

Getting a good fire going requires two things: a source of heat and good airflow. The Bison Airlighter provides both at once. It’s a butane torch that provides a 4 inch flame that’ll ignite just about any combustible material in seconds. But more importantly, an integrated fan will also deliver a flow of air that should help you spread the fire around. Gone are the days of cramming your face into the smoke in order to blow on it, or fanning the flames with an old newspaper. You’ll have a pile of burning coals in seconds and won’t keep anyone at the tailgate party waiting. It’s $99 for the Airlighter, plus $10 for a can of Butane if you don’t already have one.
