Which BBQ Tools do you Need for Your BBQ in 2020?
You know how to get off to something and remember you’ve missed something. Normally it never fails that you miss a few things when you are on a plane, going to the store, or working on some special project. Well maybe it’s just me, but let me tell you the reminder sometimes comes about the item you’ve forgotten at the most inopportune time. I’d like to explore some basic BBQ tools for cooking at the backyard.
Heat Resistant Gloves
These are best when cooking on large cookers and you need to move large pieces of meat. Tongs and forks generally speaking can’t handle the pressure and you don’t have to pierce the meat if possible. Find them here!
I love to work with latex gloves. If you have a latex allergy then get nyplex. They’re good at stopping bacteria from spreading and won’t get you’re hands dirty.
Mops and Brushes
They just look like little mops. Cotton string dish mops work to basting greatly. I’d rather use a pastry brush for smaller pieces of meat, such as ribs, chicken and chops. After each use clean them up and they’ll last you a long time. In the case of mops, washing them in boiling water is preferred.
Instant Read Thermometer
The very best way to determine if your meat is ready is to use a thermometer for instant read. There are all kinds of things available, just find one you like, learn about and use your meat’s internal readiness temperatures. There are some new ones available that will allow you to test the meat for the whole process of cooking and alert you when the internal temperature reaches the desired setting. I preffer this thermometer with instant reading.
Disposable Aluminum Pans
Plastic Storage Container
Many metal containers react with acids such as lemon juice, and may cause food discolouration. Your local store has a range of plastic storage containers or you can buy them here on Amazon. They are also super handy when cutting your vegetables for salads!
Start gathering a few of these things now and you’re going to be ready for spring, or maybe you’re like me and you’re cooking throughout the year and they’d come in handy now. Those things will make your cooking much easier and enjoyable anyway.
