If James Bond ever went on a cook-out, it probably wouldn't be too surprising if he were to open up an aluminum briefcase, to reveal a miniature fully-functioning rotisserie inside - that Q is so clever! Well, if you want to exercise your own "license to grill," you can actually buy such a device. The Carson Portable Rotisserie Grill automatically rotates up to seven skewers of meat or veggies over a charcoal fire, but folds into a compact case when not in use. Eat your heart out, Blofeld!
When opened, the bottom of the unit houses a heat-resistant porcelain charcoal tray, while the inside of the lid incorporates receptacle slots for seven skewers - the package comes with three medium metal skewers and one small. A motor inside the lid slowly rotates those skewers, while a metal rack serves to both support their weight and shelter the charcoal from the wind.
Power is provided by a rechargeable 12-volt battery, or via an included AC adapter.
The Carson Portable Rotisserie Grill certainly looks like a nifty gadget, but it doesn't come cheap - expect to pay US$719.
The video below shows how it transforms from briefcase to cooker.
