Make a Working Grill from an Altoids Tin

Why are teeny-tiny versions of just about anything so damn adorable? The "Altoids Sours BBQ Grill" looks like a tiny Weber and is "powered by a standard-sized charcoal briquette and capable of cooking a full-size hot dog (cut down to size) or smaller hamburger patties with ease." We were thinking more along the lines of camping uses, i.e heating up coffee, making s'mores, roasting individual marshmallows. It seems that trying to grill anything serious would be an incredibly tedious process. Then again, serious left the building a long time ago if you're cooking food out of candy tin. The inventor of the pint-size cooker promises that a propane version of his creation is on the way soon. Hank Hill would be proud.
