The Sky’s the Limit! – Hotrock BBQ’s Versatile Design

by | Aug 25, 2014 | Client Spotlight, Industrial Design, Inventions, Mechanical Design

Sunshine, clear skies, and warm summer weather; perfect timing to barbecue if you were ask most people. What if someone were to tell you that there really is no limit to when, what, or how you barbecue? In fact, what if they were to tell you that the sky’s the limit? Introducing the multifunctional device, the Hotrock BBQ! The Hotrock BBQ is not your traditional BBQ, but a top quality oven and griddle as well. Too good to be true? A new multifunctional device, the BBQ will save users time and money, both domestically and commercially. Created by Glen Hammond, a former Corrections Canada worker, and a trucker who has traveled throughout North America, the Hotrock BBQ was made with versatility in mind.

A two-piece tray, with the top acting as a griddle, there really is nothing that you can’t cook. Just use your imagination! Your typical barbecue food, an entire turkey, a cake, and much, much more. Also designed to fit most gas barbecues, it gives you better temperature and moisture control throughout the entire cooking process. An instructional video can be found here: About Hotrock BBQ and Setting it Up!

Other benefits of the multifunctional device Hotrock BBQ include:

–       Consistent, even heat

–       An easy clean up

–       No fires or flare ups

–       Cooks 2 to 3 times more food

–       Environmentally friendly

–       A compact, durable design

–       Reduced exposure to carcinogens typically associated with barbecuing

There really is something for everyone. No more babysitting your food, constraints on what you barbecue and/or cook, and no more unnecessary hassles. Now you can ask yourself, “What do I do with all this extra time?” For more on the Hotrock BBQ, visit their Facebook page here.
