Meet the KANKA Grill (KANKA = BBQ in a native language of Patagonia), a revolutionary electric rotating spit grill (and rotisserie system), designed to take your BBQ into a whole new level and virtually anywhere!

Upgrade your cooking experience without the hassle and cost of having multiple tools: Now, ONE SYSTEM is all you need to BBQ at home or at any outdoor cooking setting...ALL YEAR ROUND. Elevate your cooking spirit with the KANKA Grill!

Why the KANKA Grill? Just think about this: with so many places to go and opportunities to enjoy good food with family and friends, why limit yourself by having a bulky, stationary grill?

Why launching now? By launching now, we can start doing all the hard work, mass-producing all units and accessories during the winter in North America to be 100% sure we can deliver your grill before the next BBQ season starts! Guaranteed!

Motorized Rotation: Spend more time doing what you want rather than being "stuck at the grill"! The KANKA Grill features a high-torque, yet energy-efficient geared motor that rotates your food, doing the job for you! It can be powered by a solar rechargeable battery (+30 hours of operation), regular AA batteries (+12hrs), car/boat 12V plug or regular 110V outlet at home.

RELAX....and let the KANKA Grill do the job!
RELAX....and let the KANKA Grill do the job!

Fully demountable + compact + 100% portable. Take it to your fishing, hunting and all outdoor adventures! Carry it like a backpack inside its 30" carrying bag or just leave it in the trunk of your car (it won’t take up much space ;). Suddenly, any place seems to be a perfect spot for a perfect BBQ! Don't let your big, old-fashioned grill limit you...Go out and enjoy!

Easy to assemble and use. No need for manuals, tools or bolts! Now, anyone can master a BBQ or outdoor cooking fest! NO experience needed!

Perfect and consistent results: It’s no secret that slow cooking = best results, juicier meat, and tastier bites! Get professional results anywhere, BBQ after BBQ...Guaranteed!

Fun and convenient accessories: Surprise your family and friends with a gourmet experience in the comfort of your own home. Why pay a fortune at a Brazilian Steakhouse when you can do it yourself anywhere with far better results? Well, now you can!

Extremely versatile: Load it up with ANY of your favorite foods (up to 15 Lbs) and place it over ANY gas grill, charcoal grill, fire pit or open fire flame for that delicious, roasted flavor! 

Tough and Durable: Manufactured in high-quality 304 AISI stainless steel it endures impacts, extreme heat and dirt. This also makes it extremely easy to clean: just wipe it down with a wet cloth or paper towel and it is ready to be put back in its bag. Unless you enjoy brushing your old-fashioned grill, this will make a BIG difference!

Innovation + design: It not only has brains, but beauty, too! We gave the KANKA grill a modern and sexy look so you will be proud to showcase it! It's PURE INNOVATION! (US PAT PEND.) 

The KANKA Grill won't be available in stores anytime soon! Take this opportunity and get yours at the Kickstarter special price up to 60% off future MSRP! ($199 - $249)

We have been developing the KANKA Grill with all of our efforts and passion for more than 2 years and now we are extremely excited to share with you all that WE FINALLY GOT IT! THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO START THE REVOLUTION OF BBQ!  HELP US SPREAD THE WORD! (Let's share and tweet! Click below ;)

Torres del Paine - Patagonia (Chile)

The story behind it, where tradition mets innovation: South America is a land of astonishing beauty and a deep-rooted culinary culture with a great passion for food. In the most southern areas like Patagonia, local BBQ experts - The Gauchos - have mastered, over the ages, the technique of slowly roasting food by rotating it over a fire until is perfectly and evenly cooked. The results? Incredibly juicy, soft and tender meat and veggies. This method hasn't change in centuries...nor have their tools. This inspired us to create a product that could replicate this ancient technique and its results in a completely fresh and innovative way, adapted to modern-life needs, and featuring automated rotation, complete portability, and designed to be so simple to use that it would be accessible to all!

With the KANKA Grill, you’ll never worry again about burning or overcooking your food! You can cook a "traditional" BBQ or an innovative one, preparing a fancy Brazilian style BBQ and those colorful and tasty shish kebabs that everyone loves! All of this without having to attend the grill: Just relax, and let the KANKA Grill do the job! And not just any job. You will get perfect and consistent results BBQ after BBQ...guaranteed!

Risks and challenges

As with any innovation, we face some risks and challenges like:

SCALING UP PRODUCTION AND HIRING THE RIGHT SOURCING TEAM:
In order to aggressively scale up our production we will need to find the right sourcing partner and pay for expensive tooling to improve our manufacturing process. This will allow us to deliver a product of the highest possible quality, yet affordable for all.

SUPPLY CHAIN:
We get all of our parts and components from over 20 suppliers around the world, some of them small sized companies. Reaching our future production targets will require securing large quantities of key components. Our challenge will be to work in perfect coordination with them to avoid running out of stock.

CERTIFICATION:
We will start working with all necessary agencies to have our product certified and ready to commercialize. This will require big amounts of valuable engineering time and funds to pay for all official agency fees.
