I agree, its a great idea, but it looks too big and awkward.  Might better suited for one of those grill your own steak restaurants.  We just bought a propane fire pit for our patio...it works great and it doesn't smell up the house.

If I want to entertain folks by allowing them to 'cook their own food' I'll choose a fondue pot any day over such a monstrosity as that grill.
 
From fondue bourguignonne to Swiss fondue...  Oh Lord, now I've made myself hungry! :LMAO:

I do fondue, but you haven't stretched your gastronomic legs until you do raclette grilling at your dinner table surrounded by good friends and wine. I was introduced to this years ago by a German friend. He and his wife invited me to join them at a small dinner at their place in Koblenz. I was thoroughly impressed.

Especially after the deck caught fire, that then burned your house down, and the embers from it destroyed the homes of your two closest neighbors. Gotta love it! :Applause:

 

My favorite grilling incident happened when I lived in a 50-story apartment building near Lincoln Center in Manhattan.  All the apartments had small balconies, and a neighbor down on 23 decided to ignore the building's prohibition on grilling.  No damage, and I thought the smell was quite nice, but there was another resident who didn't agree.  The FDNY high-rise response is very large and involves a lot of vehicles and firefighters.  And the building-wide evacuation gave us all an opportunity to meet each other.  A good time was had by everyone.  Well, nearly everyone...

With your chair in the position shown in the first pic, I think barbecued gonads would be on the menu.

I am the "grill master" in my house over the summer and I can tell you that NO one else should have to sit next to a hot grill :Shame On You:   Between the heat and smoke that is a great idea that would be ruined by practical application  :Whew:

Paul, I have to agree on that assessment! Such a grill as illustrated in this thread would probably be bearable and perhaps even comfortable in the late Fall months when it is relatively cool...

Weird. Never heard of our seen anything like that before. Looked up some vids on YouTube and from the types of foods used, it definitely looks like a European thing. I barely survived my introduction to English teas, scones, clotted cream and cucumber sandwiches!

How about some nice, tender Rocky Mountain Oysters?

Also known as prairie oysters, Montana tendergroins, cowboy caviar, swinging beef, and calf fries... :LMAO:

With regards to "Spotted Dick," curiously enough and for the record, the word "dick" is derived from the German words "dicht" or "dick", which means "thick". It is highly probable that the ubiquitous Xmas fruit cake was derived from Spotted Dick or, possibly, a Germanic fruit cake antecedent. It is only the immature and prurient viewer/listener who titters at such, as I'm sure you just did at the word "titter". ;)

I see "lawsuit" written all over this for many potential reasons.

Guilty as charged. Especially as the kids, under the protection that it's the name of a legitimate product, still to this day contrive to use it in interesting ways in sentences.

I expected more of an even spread, actually, but I see the response is overwhelmingly negative. It just goes to show that you never know. I'm sure the inventor thought it was an excellent idea and I was interested as well, but judging from the reaction here, I wonder how many the poor guy is actually selling.

Hmmmm....... I'm thinking of propane now, but wonder if I will miss that "real" charcoal taste.

 

I saw something like this on "king of the hill" once. There's arguments for both sides. The whole subject wouldn't have even come up if the summer wasn't approaching at the same time as the old (charcoal) grill has reached a state of advanced rusty decrepitude. :(

Propane for convenience or for when you're in a hurry.  Charcoal for when you really want to enjoy the process and get the best flavors (but please - no lighter fluid).

 

There's nothing quite like a classic Weber grill for when you're in the mood to do it "old school".

I have a 5 burner Ducane with side burners/rotisserie and I never get any complaints about taste ;)
