About this project
The Status Que Crusher
The Carson Kit is a grilling instrument built to improve your grilling groove. We also built the kit to be as universally adaptable as possible.
If your smoker, gas, charcoal, wood and/or kamado grill can fit a 13" wide x 15" tall x 18"-24" long frame then you're in luck because the Carson Kit can most likely fit your grip!
Just because the kit can fit all 5 applications, it is not necessary to have all five. All you need is one to get things spinning. Though if you do have all 5 of them then out-freakin-standing!
At the end of the day, all you need is a good piece of grilling equipment or some loose brick or rocks will even do to make a nice camp fire. Set the Carson Kit over it, light it up, and let the physics of the rodizio grilling technique do the rest.
Reasons Why Grilling by Rodizio is so Powerful
The Rodizio style of grilling takes advantage of gravity. It doesn't fight against it or try to trap moisture by searing in juices as fast as it can. When racing against the gravity drying out clock, gravity will win every time. Conventional grilling trains us to keep meat still and covered. It doesn't matter how well a lid can trap heat in, gravity will always dry stationary meat out. Conversely, rodizio grilling utilizes a constant rotating method which keeps the juices circling and basting the food. That’s why there is no need for a drip pan when grilling or barbecuing with a Carson Kit.
Rodizio takes a lot of the guess work and scientific stress out of grilling. Conventional grilling is similar to baking in that you have a small window of time and specific temperature rules. However, the Rodizio style is much more forgiving and the juices stay trapped in the meat as long as it keeps spinning. Heck, you're not in the kitchen baking cookies...YOU'RE GRILLIN' BABY! So with its more forgiving grilling times, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your company.
Rodizio allows you to cook large cuts of meat fast. For example, The Carson Kit can cook 30+ lbs (5 lbs per skewer) of the most delicious top sirloin in the world and be ready to carve table side right off the fire kissed skewers in around 30 minutes. AND what you're not ready to eat can be placed back on the kit to keep spinning until you're ready to carve more. That's a real powerful difference of the Rodizio cooking physics. Here's a visual example of a Gorgonzola Sirloin Recipe.
Imagine 6 of these 5 pound skewers prepped, cooked, and served in under 30 minutes.
Even though it has a high cooking capacity, it’s just as easy to cook dinner for two. It is a grilling instrument after all; you can play it loud or play it soft.

Commonly Asked Questions
"How do you control the heat when the lid is always up?"
You control the heat just like you control the heat of a camp fire. You put coal or wood on as needed. Anytime you are using your current grill with the lid up, you are technically using kamado, gas, charcoal grill, etc. as a campfire cooker which is all you need when grilling with a rotisserie.
"What about flare ups?"
Flare ups are a fear only when your meat is stationary. If the meat is constantly spinning it cooks evenly. Here's a Parmesan Pork Tenderloin recipe to help explain:
Notice at the 45 second mark. You actually want the excess fat to roll off into the fire. That's where you get the fire kiss jump that leaps up and slaps the meat as it rotates. If I were to turn the spits off, gravity would kick in and there would be flare ups.
Quick Post Kickstarter Campaign Note
In partnership with, Manny Ohonme and his dream to put a new pair of shoes on as many of the 1.2 billion kids that wake up every day shoeless all over the world, we will be donating a brand new pair of shoes to his charity Samaritans Feet for every kit that's purchased via our website post campaign success.
It is with your support, pledged backing, and the success of this campaign that will allow us the opportunity to keep the world rodizio revolution rolling into the 2016 grilling season, just time for the Brazilian Summer Olympics!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, we couldn't do it without you!
Risks and challenges
Good News! We've gotten our hiccups and delays out of our system we believe with the initial batch. Now that we've successfully produce and delivered a few hundred units we feel there are no foreseeable challenges in producing and fulfilling your pledged order by the 2016 grilling season.
If anything unexpected happens to appear that may a cause a delivery delay, we will keep you up to date every step of the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
