5 rad gadgets for summer grilling
Summer hasn’t officially started yet, but if you’re anything like me, you’ve been grilling for a month now. But rather than stick with your old trusty arsenal of grilling tools, why not mix it up this summer and pick up a new gadget to expand your grilling horizon? Check out these five cool grilling gadgets that are sure to optimize your summer.
Tired of getting inaccurate readings with your old-school meat thermometer? Try out the Splash-Proof Super-Fast Thermapen. This Thermapen is the same kind used by restaurant chains and health inspectors and can give you the temperature of your food in seconds. It also comes in a wide variety of colors, find it at Amazon.
Beer can chicken never looked this good. This roaster from Williams-Sonoma takes vertical chicken cooking to the next level. It’s made of stainless steel and anything from beer to wine to herbs and spices can fit in the “beer can” holder in the center. It’s even dishwasher safe!
If you’re tired of grilling your wings right on the grill grates and want something a bit more indirect, the Folding Leg and Wing Rack will be perfect for your chicken wing designs. The Wing Rack can suspend 12 legs or wings in the air over your flame so you get the most even cooking of the chicken possible.
Grilling can be tricky sometimes. The balance between cooking your food just right and drying out that chicken or brat is a fine line. That’s where Sur La Table’s Moistly Grilled Grill Humidifier comes in to save the meal. The cast-iron grill humidifier can be filled with beer, wine or other juices and placed directly next to your food in the grill to make sure it stays moist as it cooks. Smart shoppers can even get 6.5 percent Cash Back on their purchase, too.
I would not complain if cleaning my grill was a little easier. That’s why I’m adding the Motorized Grill Brush to our list of gadgets. The grill brush’s motor does all the hard work for you, while the brush’s push-button mist turns to steam on your grill, helping you get rid of particularly gnarly food stuck on the grates. Get it from Brookstone to get 5 percent Bash Back.
With these inexpensive and handy grilling items, this summer might be your best one yet.
