BBQ Equipment: The Solar Grill

I stumbled across The Solar-Grill today. It's an interesting concept, using the sun's energy to cook your food. But in no way can you create BBQ or even grill on this piece of equipment. Basically you put your food into a metal tube and the heat from the sun steams the food to cook it.

From their website: With the new Solar-Grill you can barbecue fish, chicken, vegetables, juicy steaks or other tasteful meals. An all this can be achieved without: electricity, coals, connecting or fire lighting.

Just unfold aim at the sun put the meal into the barbecue cup and grilling starts immediately

The Solar-Grill has a flexible mirror, which focuses the sun beams on the barbecue cup allowing it to heat up. Your meal is cooked in the self contained barbecue cup an heated evenly from all sides, without direct irradiation by sunlight.

Because of the intelligent construction of the Solar-Grill your favorite dishes are cooked thoroughly by it self well-done, without burning. Everything keeps icy (?) and you can enjoy other activities.

Solar-Grill is ideal for camping and spare time, in the garden, on the balcony, at the swimming pool, beach or lakeside resort. Anyplace where open fire is forbidden or clouds of smoke are not welcome; no smoke no open fire no turn of meals just pleasant smell of fresh barbecued dishes. (How can it smell like barbecue when the food is steamed and there's no smoke? It will smell like steamed meat!)

Telescope features and a foldable mirror enables easy handling and space-saving storage. Because of it's extreme lightness you can easily take the Solar-Grill to your favorite place.

Back to me now. I really think this is an interesting concept and the Solar-Grill looks like a fun gadget, but why do they insist on calling it a grill? Damn, they just don't understand BBQ.

This is what happens when an engineer with no cooking experience decides to design a grill.

Hmmm, so what makes something a grill? According to the Free Dictionary a grill is something used to cook food that marks it with a gridiron. No real mention of flames or wood. I guess that's how Big George gets away with calling his contraption a "grill".

I think products like these focus on the 2nd definition given by Free Dictionary: "to torture or afflict as if by broiling".

Personally - if it ain't cooked with wood, it ain't no good.
