This viral footage with over 1.5 million views shows a man riding a motorbike with a barbecue attached to the back as he flogs sizzling cuts of meat fresh off the grill.

The netizen accompanied the viral clip with the message: “When you fancy a Sunday barbecue but you wake up around 1.30pm and then God appears on a motorbike.”

In the footage, biker Adrian Ricardo Braga Lemes, alias El Papu, is seen riding along a street before being asked to pull over to the roadside.

The mobile vendor, who is reportedly well known in the area, opens up his barbecue and offers the hungry resident a selection of sausages, fillets and peppers.

The 43-year-old told local media that it took seven months to finish making the mobile grill after first coming up with the idea.

He said: “I am restless, I like to fix things, do electrical work at home and solder stuff.”

An ‘asado’ (roast) is a famous social event in various South American countries consisting of cooking beef, pork, chicken, chorizo and morcilla on a grill known as a ‘parilla’.

Netizen ‘Abel Miranda’ said: “Great idea! Very clever.”

‘William Matias Fernandez’ commented: “He should win an award as Argentina’s entrepreneur of the year.”
