Let’s dig in a little deeper, and see which items are essential for grilling, and why each tool is vital when it comes to grilling delicious meals for family and friends!
A pair of tongs is a must-have for any grillmaster. The tongs work as an extension of the griller’s hands, and allow them to work with the food as it heats up on the grill. Look for tongs that offer a long enough length, as to keep you away from the heat, but lightweight enough to allow you to be nimble when working with meats and veggies on the grill surface.
A spatula used for grilling needs to also be similar to the tongs in that it needs to be light, durable, versatile, and have enough length to keep you at a safe distance from the hottest part of the grill. Since spatulas are used primarily for flipping foods, they can’t be too heavy and bulky, or you’ll likely be unable to properly move steaks or filets around the cook surface.
If you’re into making kebabs and other similar foods on a grill, you’ll want to use skewers to cook meats, vegetables, and more properly. Skewers are typically available in wood and metal. Wooden skewers are inexpensive, but do need to be soaked in water before use to prevent burning. Metal skewers will cost more, but are durable and reusable.
- Cast-Iron Skillet
When making burgers on the grill, consider using a cast-iron skillet to hold and cook the meat. Grilling burgers directly on the grill is fine, but the meat will lose some of the tasty fat as it drips into the charcoal. Cooking the meat in a cast-iron skillet keeps the fat in with the patties and also keeps that flavor in there, too!
- Charcoal Chimney
Never use lighter fluid to get your charcoal started again when you use a charcoal chimney. Simply use the chimney, some rolled-up newspaper, and some charcoal. Light the newspaper, and watch the charcoal heat up rapidly! The coal (and, in turn, your food) will not have that lighter fluid smell or taste.
- Grill Brush
When you’re done cooking, use a grill brush to keep your cooking surface clean for the next time! Look for a brush with heavy-duty bristles that can quickly and easily remove cooked-on food from the grate. Make sure the bristles are flexible enough to get in between the grates, which can be hard to reach and is a spot where food residue likes to get stuck.
