Garden Smoke Emitting Thing that Smells of Barbecue

In the summer, briefly, it is more often than not a pleasant experience to walk down the road and smell the smell of barbecues. Even if you can't see them due to the fence, you know they're having a barbecue, and it seems a good thing, although sometimes brave. Rarely if ever does it create a negative sentiment for others.

This is a thing that emits barbecue smell and smoke, and is cheaper than having an actual barbecue. In fact, you don't even have to be in. It just cheers other people up and gives the impression that you actually do things.

In 2007, Guinness World Records certified that the Ghost pepper was the world's hottest chili pepper, 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. The Ghost chili is rated at more than 1 million Scoville heat units (SHUs). [8th of 7, Oct 28 2016]


       Will the odour gradually change over time, from partially combusted cheap barbecue lighter fluid to burnt chicken?

       Which came first?

       This is entirely Bakeable, using a regular theatrical smoke machine, standard smoke oil, and appropriate food flavourings.

       But [blissmiss] won't like the title. How about "ghost barbecue"?

       I was going to go with 'thing'.
Ian Tindale, Oct 28 2016

       And yet you didn't?

       // "ghost barbecue" //   

       That is laden with ambiguity. It could be "A device for the outdoor cooking of ghosts". It could refer to the "spiritual essence" of a previous outdoor cooking event. It could imply a form of impromptu culinary sèance, to which souls of the departed are invited. Or it could be a small, specialized grill intended specifically for the preparation by roasting over charcoal of the infamous Ghost Chillies <link>.   

       So much pedantry, so little time ...

       How do you know, have you measured it?

       To the attosecond ...

       The trick, [po], is not to stand either on or directly downwind of the barbecue.
MaxwellBuchanan, Oct 28 2016

       Periodically some hair or fur could be added to the burn chamber, so those people walking down the road wonder a little.

       Nothing beats half-cooked meat with the great smell of lighter fluid.   

       I couldn't stand artificial smoke flavours as used by Burger King. For some reason they added the hint of lighter fluid to chicory to make it authentic, or at least thats how it tasted.   

       I'm now eating meat again once a month on the grounds of becoming pale and sickly.

       They have a cure for that. It's called Panera Bread...
RayfordSteele, Oct 28 2016

       You could accomplish this by putting a piece of meat on a metal grill and heating it with burning charcoal. It's a little more work, but then you could get a meal out of it too.

       That's clever, you should post that.

       See? Here's a kosher idea
