BBQ Vending Machine

Now I have really seen it all…

I ran across this picture on and I had to share it.


“This BBQ vending machine, found near Takadanobaba station in the Shinjuku Ward of Tokyo, was spotted by our Japan correspondent Devonsu. He said, “As I walked towards the train station I could smell the unmistakeable aroma of low and slow cooked meats. I had of course seen beer, cigarette, and food vending machines in Japan, but couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this.”

“I had to unfortunately rush to work, but noticed a man selecting the pork shoulder (this vending machine was serving brisket, pork shoulder, smoked prime rib, thick beef ribs, and strangely enough, prime cut steaks). The pork shoulder was lifted and cut with a robotic arm and dropped onto hot buns for sandwiches.”

If you have any other pictures of BBQ vending machines – or any picture of BBQ that are worth posting – send them to me! I love this stuff!
