DIY Brazilian Car-B-Que

CNC & Machining Food & Beverage


Brazilian Volkswagen mechanics Wolks Gruppe Garibaldi miraculously salvaged an old Volkswagen Brasilia by transforming it into a bonafide churrasqueira, which is a type of barbecue for traditional Latin American style meat grilling. By using the car’s engine to slowly turn several meat-laden skewers, via a belt connected to one of the car’s rear wheels, this ingenious grill ensures the meat is evenly cooked on all sides for what I can only assume are some delicious results.

    Well that’s very nice, except for the carbon monoxide poisoning. (Just hook a hose pipe to the exhaust fellows and lead it out the door!)
