R2-D2 is one of the most beloved robots ever. Chances are that if you are reading this, you already own a piece of R2 merchandise or two. Some of you have tons of R2 items. But do you have a droid that can smoke meat? No? Why not? Looks how cool that is. You need one immediately.
“I didn’t think I could love this little droid any more, but then he started cooking meat in my backyard and now my love knows no bounds.” Okay, I made that quote up. That didn’t come from the guy who created this droid smoker. This quote did: “I always thought my smoker grill looked like an astromech droid so I went ahead and painted it like one. I call him R2-Meat2!” While he’s not quite as detailed as this R2 unit, I think this version has more character.
You see, much like the sculptures of Michelangelo, the droid was there all along, he just need some paint to bring it out.
