Caron Rotisseries, a company that must have been founded by Q in his retirement, recently released its newest product; a portable rotisserie grill. Perfect for a day at the beach, an EXTREMELY nonchalant office, or if you feel like walking around looking like a professional assassin.

It comes with a removal charcoal pan for grilling and the rotating skewers can be powered by A/C adapter or lithium battery. No word on how much this barbecue beast weighs but at a cost of $719, you're sure to be the only one on the block with one.
