When spring is approaching, and 70 or 80 degree weather starts to become the norm, it triggers my desire to bring the barbecue grill out. I don’t like using propane, so instead I use charcoal and sometimes I even use lava rocks. What I do not enjoy is having to clean the grill after every use. I also become frustrated when I overcook or under cook certain meats. That has been extremely costly in the past. I found a few products that help rectify these issues, and they’re pretty affordable too.
BBQ Grill & Baking Mats
My first amazing find was an “As Seen on TV” product called a grill mat. It will help save me from spending countless hours in the backyard cleaning my grill grates. They’re non-stick plates that go on top of your grill and create an easy to clean cooking surface. It’s advertised as free from harmful chemicals like PFOA. I like how it can be used indoors as well.
Barbecue Meat Thermometer
This barbecue meat thermometer solves the problem of under or overcooked meats on your barbecue grill. Use it to prepare your meats to the precise temperature you want every time. Just stick it in your steak or burger and go on enjoying your family and the outdoors. There’s a clear digital reading that tells you exactly when the meat is cooked to your desired temperature — you don’t have to cut the meat to check if its ready. There’s also an auto-off feature that saves energy.
Charcoal Lighter (No More Lighter Fluid)
I have always used lighter fluid in the past to light my charcoals. The down side is that at times I have over doused the charcoal and no matter what I cooked it always tasted a bit like that fuel. Not any more, thanks to this Rapidfire Chimney Starter. With this product I can safely and accurately light my charcoals in the canister and have an even distribution of heat throughout the grill. Awesome!
