Any avid fans of the barbecue grill out there will know that there is little more annoying than having to constantly attend to making sure the charcoal keeps on burning, often resulting in ever bigger huffs and puffs. Well huff and puff no more with what is a very simple yet effective looking solution to backyard breathlessness, the Barbecue Hand Crank.

As the name suggests the Barbecue Hand Crank is a hand held and operated portable blower that lets the user produce a stream of constant air with a simple turn of the handle. As well as keeping a backyard chef's face away from the fire, the device can help to control dust and sparks.

The handy accessory is available from Uxsight for around US$5.
