Everything becomes a lot easier once you have the right tools. Even a bad griller can have better results with the right tools. If you thought that your grill was the only tool you needed then think again. BBQ tools are important to help you start the whole process. Having juicy succulent meat needs to start before it even hits the grill.
To achieve BBQ perfection you need the right BBQ tools to prepare your meat in advance. Good preparation makes your meat taste great and it also makes the whole process go a lot easier and faster. You spend less time slaving over the grill and more time relaxing.
Basting and Tenderizing
BBQ tools include good basting brushes and meat tenderizers. If you plan on grilling steak then you will need a good meat tenderizer to prepare your meat. Besides the old school meat hammer there are other types of meat tenderizers available that require less effort on your part.
Use a good meat tenderizer that will create ‘heat channels’ throughout the meat by making uniform punctures. This will give you quicker cooking times and meat that is tender and flavorful.
Basting brushes are invaluable BBQ tools to keep meat moist. A good basting brush will allow you to evenly coat meat quickly while it is grilling. As anyone who has grilled before knows, without regular basting meat becomes dry quickly and even worse can burn. Keep your meat safe by buying a good basting brush.
Keeping it Together
Your arsenal of BBQ tools should also include some great skewers. Find some non-stick skewers that you can use during your next barbeque and you will find that things go along a lot easier. Not only are they handy for grilling smaller chunks of meat but also they are also very versatile BBQ tools.
Skewers can be sued to make kebabs, grill vegetables or fruit and even hold chicken into place. A lot of space is wasted when you are grilling smaller pieces of meat at a barbeque. So save space by using skewers and optimizing the heat for more meat. Skewers sometimes come in fork shapes and are great for making more kebabs than traditional skewers would.
After the party’s over you need to clean up. Cleaning a grill seems like a lot of hard work after a long day out in the sun. Make your life easier with a good scrubber. If you are worried about ruining your nails use a holder that will hold a scrubber in place while you clean your grill.
