Steampunk locomotive BBQ

This steampunk locomotive barbecue is totally unique. It was built privately in the village of Deulino which is about 100 miles from Moscow, Russia. The Firebox is lined with heat resistant bricks and has three compartments.One is for frying steaks, one for kebabs and one for a rotisserie for large pieces of meat.

The train was built by Yuri Fušteâ and Andrei Trubina. It burns charcoal, birch or oak wood and, according to the blog looks amazing in the dark with the fire burning and all the lights blazing on the train. You can even ring the bell to summon your guests when the meat is ready.

You can be sure that this will be much more awesome than anything your neighbours will have in their yard.

Sous vide

Sous vide cooking is popular with chefs who want to accurately regulate the temperature for cooking. Sous vide is the French term for "Under vacuum".

The food is placed into a plastic bag and all air is removed from the bag. The food is them placed into a water bath at a regulated temperature. This cooks the meat evenly, retaining moisture and ensuring meltingly soft meat.

The meat can then be glazed and sizzled to perfection on the grill.

Cream whipper

A great whipper is essential for any tech barbecue.  The charger for the whipper is filled with nitrous oxide which acts as the whipping agent as the cream is dispensed from the nozzle. Add sugar and flavourings to the cream in the can and connect it to the nozzle

Whippers will whip more than cream. Try whipped cream cheese too. Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas due to its euphoric effects when taken recreationally.
