This Combination Briefcase/Barbecue Is Dangerously Classy

George Foreman, you have been usurped.

There’s nothing better than barbecuing without being constrained to one’s own backyard (I guess.) Thankfully, this $341.14 Mon Oncle portable barbecue set from  Spanish design company RS Barcelona gives you the liberty to cook your meat when and were you want.

The briefcase disguise is baffling to me–is there a demand from high-end consumers that they be able to fire up the grill in their office like a Don Draper badass? However, all proceeds for the luxuriant set go towards a good cause. RS Barcelona is partnering with My Goodness, a middleman between philanthropic design companies and consumers. According to their website,

My Goodness is the new destination for fashion and lifestyle products and ‘money can’t buy’ experiences that enables you to shop and give back to great causes and charities.

With every purchase of these Smoove B-worthy sets, a donation will be made to north-London theater company Chickenshed.

It’s so classy, in fact, that cooking on it seems like a lot of pressure. There’s no way I’ll be able to fry up franks on a Spanish leather briefcase/grill named after a French art house film helping to raise funds for a British theater company. I would have to cook, like, vegetable skewers or something. While wearing a monocle and ascot.  Shit.
