The BBQ Counterweight is a cooking aid designed to assist individuals to lift the lid of a barbecue with very little force or physical exertion. The modified BBQ lid has a 5/16-inch read rod bolted to the back and the counterweight consists of a 1-litre plastic bottle filled with sand and is attached to the end of the rod with wire. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Dave Doman for an individual with very little arm strength who had difficulty lifting the lid of the BBQ. This device was found to provide enough leverage to make the lifting force needed to open very slight.
