Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to summer, and chances are, you either hosted a barbecue at your Huntington Beach home or you attended a friend’s party. There are plenty of more opportunities to show off your grilling prowess this summer, and with these outstanding tools, you will have a line from your barbecue out the front door and down the block!
Plank: Grilling on a wood plank made from hickory, maple, mesquite, or cedar enhances the flavors of meat, fish, and poultry. Salmon on a cedar plank is a perennial favorite! Buy the Maine Grilling Woods Natural Oval Planks and get grilling. They’re $21 for a 4-pack at mainegrillingwoods.com.
Angled Silicone Barbecue Mop: If you’re making ribs or other meats you need to baste, you have to grab one of these angled silicone barbecue mops! The mop head is removable for easy cleaning, and the brush can withstand temperatures up to 500º. You can buy it for $14 at shopbowery.com.
Steak Thermometer: Does your family prefer their steaks at varying temperatures? If so, take the guesswork out with this amazing Steak Button Thermometer Set. The tiny thermometers register when your meat is rare, medium, or well done, and all you have to do is push them into each piece of meat. Buy a set of four for $20 at surlatable.com.
Stainless-Steel Tool Set: Whether you need one yourself or you’re looking for the perfect gift for a barbecue fan, the Mr. Bar-B-Q 30-piece stainless-steel tool set is the only one you’ll ever need. Neatly packed inside the case, you’ll find a carving knife, tongs, corn holders, grill brush, skewers, and a lifetime warranty. And you can pick it up for $70 at homedepot.com.
