Grilling Tools Aren't Just for Gifts
We stock very useful grill trays, with grid and mesh options for grilling veggies, fish, pizza and smaller pieces of meat. Along with whole fish baskets and stainless steel or bamboo skewers, a variety of wood chips and smoking boxes, grill scrubbers, basting brushes, grilling mitts, meat grinders, sizzle platters, cedar planks and paella pans to help you outdoor grill just about anything you want.
Summertime is outdoor grilling time with great local fresh ingredients and warm evenings— it makes for an enjoyable way to prepare a meal.
Interestingly, most grilling tools we sell are sold as gifts, so that leaves me wondering how many people make do with their regular stovetop tools on the grill? For those who know me, they understand my perspective on kitchen tools… I’m a bit of a minimalist— I often prefer the efficiency of a sharp knife when someone else might use a special gadget, but I also recognize when having the right tool for the job makes a difference. And, I must say, for grilling there are many tools that, depending on what you are grilling, can make or break your grilling experience.
For example, a pair of 12” to16” long tongs or a similar length spatula are really helpful for putting food on a pre-heated grill, turning it, and taking it off when cooked to perfection. Forks can pierce your food, causing flare-ups.
Another tip— Best not to use non-stick coated cookware on the grill… never, EVER. Non-stick just won’t last and could even be un-healthy when exposed to an open flame… something often in the small print, but really… can you grill without exposing to open flame?! Best to opt for stainless steel, enameled cookware, grill-safe ceramic, cast-iron or carbon steel.
As for the grills themselves, we are fortunate to have a great shop nearby in Littleton: https://stoveshop.com/ This is where I learned, from their knowledgeable staff, all about a large variety of outdoor grill brands and options and where we purchased our Saber grill for home, which I love!
