Environmentally Friendly Grilling? Hook Me Up! Beth Snyder July 4, 2012 I absolutely love grilled food. But propane is expensive (and quite frankly tastes icky to me), and charcoal can be tricky to work with as well as releasing pollutants into the air we could all do without. We’re all aware that the sun can burn things, be it small boys being cruel to ants or a soda bottle thrown carelessly into a field that starts a brush fire. Why not harness the power of the sun to make dinner? Obviously this wouldn’t work if you eat after dark, but it would be an excellent choice for, say, the beach. SOLGRILL is a completely solar-powered grill. It uses no heat source or fuel whatsoever; just the power of the sun. It features a parabolic-shaped mirror made of 1.5 mm thick durable and weatherproof PMMA. The base is anodized aluminum, and the mount for the mirror is all natural wood with no paint or chemical solvents. It’s easy to travel, as the tripod is removable and folds as you’d expect. It features a built-in sun finder, so you’ll always have the optimum angle for cooking, and it’s fitted for an automatic rotisserie motor. The skewer is adjustable to six different heights, allowing you to cook pretty much anything you’d care to slap on a grill. It also has a removable grease tray. Since you’re using sunlight, there is no preheating necessary. Thanks to the unique shape of the mirror, your food will be almost immediately hit with 428 degrees F to 446 degrees F of cooking heat. You know the best part? You can use it summer or winter, because there have been no notable differences in the heat provided by the sun in any season. It also cooks much faster than traditional grilling since the heat is so concentrated on your food. Here’s the bad part. While SOLGRILL costs just $199.99 US, it appears to be out of stock right now. Apparently you can get one in Italy, but it’s unclear whether or not they ship to other countries. Figures, doesn’t it? Source: Walyou Share This With The World!
