Buying a Grill is a lot like buying a Car in that once you’ve chosen the model you want, there’s a range of add-on’s and extra’s you can buy separately, that’ll make your experience with it more comfortable and enjoyable. I’m going to be taking you through the kinds of products other Grill owners are choosing, and I’ll also be explaining how each one benefits you and your food. You might have heard of some of them, while others may be entirely new to you. So read on, and you’ll get the very best out of your Grill with the Worlds Best Barbecue Tools.
In many ways Grills have evolved substantially, but some things will remain the same until the end of time. Cast-Iron Grates are and will always be the best out there. If you get them with the right thickness they’ll cook meats with greater evenness than Steel or Porcelain. They’ll also cook quicker, produce less burn marks, last longer and give you a better quality taste than other materials on offer. Grates are so important in outdoor cooking because they hold heat and disperse heat around the cooking surface, and Cast-Iron Grates do this incredibly well. The best on the market are the Weber 7524 Porcelain Enamel Cast-Iron Cooking Grates, and they come with the added bonus of being non-stick so when you come to clean them, the debris will fall straight off. You’ll see quicker Grill times as heat disperses around the Grates at high-speed, and you’ll see the kind of evenness you’ve always dreamed of.
The most common implement to turn meat with is a Fork but there’s no point in buying perfect Non-Stick Cast-Iron Grates if you’re using a Fork that food sticks to. Get the OXO Good Grips Nylon Fork or the NORPRO 9105 12 Inch Melamine Fork and you’ll be turning your meats without shredding them up.
You’re probably wondering what these are, and you’re not alone because even some outdoor grill enthusiasts with years of experience have never bought Bear Claws. But, they’re becoming very popular recently and this is because of they’re obvious benefits. Restaurants who serve Pulled Pork produce those wonderful looking shreds of meat by using Bear Claws to quickly tear the meat from the bone. They’ll save you time and you won’t end up with a mess of huge chunks and thin slices when you come to make your shredded pork sandwich. The best Bear Claws can also be used to hold meat while you carve and you won’t be disappointed if you buy the Pulled Pork Shredder Claws. They’re relatively cheap but are of high quality and should prove an excellent asset to compliment your grilling.
Some people still use gloves made out of flammable materials like Cloth or Wool, but this is a huge mistake because every year thousands of Americans suffer burns from using the wrong type of gloves. Some of these burns are very minor, but others are extremely serious and result in high medical bills. The best gloves on the market are made of Silicone because Silicone doesn’t catch fire and is heat-resistant up to 450 Celsius so they will protect you from the heat of any Grill. Try the OXA Heat Resistant BBQ Grill Oven Gloves or the TTLIFE XL 13.5 Inch Long Silicone BBQ Grill Oven Gloves and you’ll make your experience of grilling a safer one.
Once you’ve got your brand new gloves you’re going to want to hold something in them, and most people buy themselves a great Long Spatula. I’d recommend the New Star Foodservice 38200 Wood Handle Grill Spatula because there’s very little heat build up on the handle and it’s wide enough to hold most steaks and ribs. The best thing about it though, is the design because they’ve made a very strong Spatula here that’ll last users many years.
I’ve been grilling for years and even I don’t know all the recipes, so a must-have item is an amazing cookbook. A great start would be Weber’s Ways to Grill: The Step by Step Guide to Expert Grilling, because it takes you through all your cooking times so you can cook meats exactly as you like them; It’ll also help you with your seasonings. Another top seasoning book is Grill Master: The Ultimate Arsenal of Back to Basics Recipes for the Grill. It has some wonderful steak idea’s and some interesting ways of grilling vegetables too. For people who love meats a top recommendation would be The Official John Wayne Way to Grill. It’s for men who love meat, and want to grill to restaurant standards. There’s seasoning idea’s, recipes, hints. tips, advice, and a guide to identifying the best cuts of meat so you’ll be fully prepared with this meat bible.
Often, buying a Grill is only the first step, because what follows is not only great food also a brand new hobby. As I mentioned above; I’m still learning even though I’ve been Grilling for many years, and that’s what’s so amazing about outdoor cooking – you can always improve. The little hints and tips I’ve given you along with the specific products you need to put them into practise, will help you move to the next level in your cooking, and most importantly they’ll help you be the envy of the neighbourhood.
