A good set of Barbeque Tools and utensils are the next obvious purchase when a new barbecue grill arrives in your backyard. A few basics are often enough, and you may have some of these things in your kitchen already.
But some are specialized or adapted specifically for using at a hot barbeque grill. These adaptations are usually in the form of longer handles or handles
with a heat resistant material, such as wood on the end where you hold
So here is a run down of the most useful barbeque tools.
These are can long and with a sharp point on the end for threading the various ingredients (they don’t have to be all meat).
As the best ones are stainless steel, which is pretty good at conducting heat from a grill (300F or more temperature) - get some with wooden handles or you’ll brand yourself when you turn the kebabs over!
Hinged Grill Baskets are very useful for grilling anything that is usually grilled in quantity.
Burgers, sausages, chicken wings or breast, some kebabs, fish fillets. Put the meat inside and close the lid.
If you’ve ever had eight burgers or thirty chicken wings on the go you’ll know how much time it takes to flip all these over. A grill basket turns them all over at once. If you're into grilling more than smoking, get a couple of them.
Barbecue Tool Sets are worth a mention, as they include everything mentioned here and more in one box.
Some sets only include spatula, fork and tongs which doesn’t seem much for the money - but these are the tools that get used most.
