With everything from charaben guides to virtual pets to the usual exercises in mayhem, the iPhone app gaming world has really found its niche as a tool for the overly bored. Usher in my new #1 favorite app, the iBBQ!

If you've ever wanted to experience the sights and sounds of yakiniku (traditional Japanese BBQ grilling) while, say, sitting on the subway, toilet or even on an airplane some 10,000 feet in the air, well - this quirky game has got you covered in virtual soy. Most unique game feature: You actually blow into the phone's mic to heat up the fire! Weird. The only thing missing (duh) is the ability to smell and taste the meats. Who wants some of the real thing? Corn for me, please!

Check it out, in action:
