Globe BBQ Grill


It seems to me that the only sensible reason to make a spherical barbeque grill that looks like the Earth is that it is delightful, and makes the grill more enjoyable to use or just look at while it’s sitting there in the corner of the patio. And it seems to me, that the purpose of bringing delight to its users is rather spoiled by the suggestion that the grill “is a symbol of human consumption of natural resources.” My BBQ grill doesn’t have to symbolize anything. In fact, it’s better if it doesn’t. But if it wants to look like a globe just because it makes me and my family enjoy using it and having it around that much more, I’m all for it! The World BBQ is a prototype from Australia’s GoldenHen design studio.

    I think it’s nice as an art piece but impractical as a BBQ. First time it is fired up the paint will burn off and, if it is a real globe, the metal will be awfully thin so it would probably warp from the heat.

    Gore finally has incontrovertible proof! Why, it’s even man-made!
