If you haven’t had a BBQ cookout in a while, then it’s time to invite family and friends over for the best cook out yet. Come on, it’s time to get started!
But before you start your griller, (if you don’t have one, check out our complete grill packages) there are a couple of must-have items to have on your checklist.
Charcoal (and Charcoal Grills)
Of course, gas grills are still the fastest way to get things grilling. But if you have extra time to grill, then going charcoal is for you. I’m telling you, there is nothing like a little-burnt char on your ribs and steak to kick things up in the flavor department.
Steak and Carving Knives
Ask any chef or home cook what the single most important tool in the kitchen is and he or she will almost certainly give you the same answer: a chef’s knife.
So Yes. you do NEED a knife set for cutting steaks and all the meat you will grill. This is a must have for every kitchen, perfectly ideal for slicing, dicing, mincing and light chopping.
Okay, so next on this list is your knife’s partner in crime: the cutting board. Often forgotten for its flashier, sharper-looking companion, the cutting board doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. But, this is where all the slicing and carving action happens.
Using a smoker isn’t the only way to get great smoky flavor into your favorite foods- you can easily transform any grill into a smoker by simply using wood chips.
The multiple varieties of wood flavors each produce their own unique flavor of smoke. Pick wood flavors that will compliment the food you are grilling.
Apple Smoke Chips (Poultry, Seafood and Lamb)
Cherry Smoke Chips (Poultry, Seafood, Lamb, Pork and Beef)
Hickory Wood Chips (Pork, Beef and Cheese)
What’s the easiest and most crowd-pleasing barbecue dish to make? Kebabs! They have plenty of fun stuff on them (you can basically cut anything into cubes and throw it on the grill) and are very easy to cook. But, you don’t want to get everything all cut up and realize that you forgot the most important part- the skewers.
That’s five, but we’ve got one more as an added bonus…
Someone once said Buy the best thermometers and you’ll only cry once.
It is true, how many of us, at one time, have either undercooked or overcooked a steak?
If you hate apologizing for overcooked meat or having to take chicken off your guests’ plates and sticking it in the microwave, then you’ve got to get a good thermometer. Just open the grill, poke a thin probe into the meat, and in seconds it tells you the temp.
So, if you had to make a list of the few things that you absolutely have to have for the perfect BBQ experience, what would be on it?
