The GoBQ is a game changer. We believe it will change the way people think about outdoor cooking.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
Grilling enthusiasts across the globe are gobbling up the GoBQ—the world’s first truly portable and packable grill—as GoBQ Grills is poised to blow by its Indiegogo fundraising goal in less than a week. As of Monday afternoon, the company’s Indiegogo campaign raised more than 90% of its $30,000 goal from 196 backers in 19 countries.

Spring is here, and for many that means it’s time to bust out the grill and get cooking outdoors. Well this year, grillers won’t have to be confined to their backyards or tethered to their SUVs, because the world’s first and only ultra portable and packable grill—the GoBQ—is here.
Weighing in at only eight pounds, the patented GoBQ is a revolutionary grilling system complete with a metal grate cooking surface large enough to feed a family, chain basket to hold charcoal, and lid to contain heat. But unlike other grills on the market, all GoBQ components fold in on themselves to become a black cylinder that resembles a small, sleek duffel bag. Take it with you camping, tailgating, picnicking, biking, boating or fishing, and people everywhere will ask, “Wait, that’s a grill?”
“What makes the GoBQ unique is you can sling it over your shoulder or stuff it in a backpack,” says co-founder and product chief Eric Goeken, who invented the GoBQ and built its early prototypes in his own garage.
After only five days on the market, critics are already weighing in on the ingenuity of the GoBQ. “Imagine a lightweight portable charcoal grill with nearly 200 square inches of cooking surface that fold up into a tiny little package,” says barbecue and grilling expert Derrick Riches of bbq.about.com. The GoBQ “could revolutionize the portable charcoal grill forever.”
The body of the GoBQ is made of a silicon-coated fiberglass material that can withstand flames and high temperatures. The fabric base, nickel-plated metal grate and charcoal basket all fold up to fit neatly inside the grill’s fabric lid, which also folds together to become its own compact carrying bag. Set up and tear down are a breeze, as the GoBQ body cools to the touch soon after dumping the charcoal embers—unlike other metal grills, which can take forever to cool down.
“The GoBQ is a game changer,” says company co-founder and CEO Todd Zaroban. “Those other so-called portable grills are either too cumbersome to carry or too flimsy to properly cook anything. We believe it will change the way people think about outdoor cooking.”
The Indiegogo campaign ends May 2 with a goal to raise $30,000 or more. Supporters can pledge anywhere from $5 to $1,080 or above, and the cost of one GoBQ runs $120. GoBQ is targeted to ship in August of this year.
