CasusGrill - Biodegradable Instant BBQ

By: on June 21, 2017

Biodegradable and 100% natural, the CasusGrill leaves no trace when you dispose of it. Which is more than I can say for the oysters my friend Cornelius grilled at his anti-Taco-Tuesday BBQ last night. I disposed of at least a dozen (3 dozen?) of those things and they feel like they're still degrading in my biosphere, and leaving plenty of trace each time I hit the john.

Don't worry though, it's not so bad that I can't think about my next meal, and the next 25 after that. Come July 2017, one of those meals could be cooked up at Eightmile Lake on the CasusGrill. The Danish Design Award-winning grill assembles from: an FSC-certified cardboard box lined with naturally occurring lava stone; a (non-burning) bamboo grill rack; and Quick Oxilite bamboo charcoal briquettes. In addition to its biodegradable composition, the CasusGrill fires up and gets hot enough for the burgers, skewers, and fresh-caught fish in around 5 minutes.

The 12.2" x 9.25" x 2.16" cardboard contraption holds its high heat for an hour's worth of cooking. When you've finished your CasusGrill dinner, you can either throw the unit in the trash, or throw it in your campfire. And then continue your eco-friendly efforts over at the cardboard Shit Box.
