BBQ Accessories: THE REALLY RIGHT STUFF

Are there any reco's for tools?  Like Spatulas, Tongs, - I went to World Market and bought the stainless shaker that works well, Rib Racks, etc?

That's an amazing question. I just wish there was an equally amazing answer. Here's my input that will only lend to confuse and beg more questions. A friend of mine had a set of $135 SS All-Clad for about 2 1/2 years before the hinge on the Tongs broke and the spatula was rusted. I have a $20 zinc/aluminium/metal set from (can't remember what popular store) that I got in 1998 and are still going strong.

If I had to shop for a new set today I would hit up Amazon and check out the reviews.

I'd love your recommendation on high-heat grilling gloves because I need to buy some... like, today! :)

 

I don't own any grilling gloves of any kind so I'll have to check some out :)

 

 

Improv - I have always gone to a welding supply store and purchased welders gauntlets.  Get the longest ones you can ... longer is much better, especially during cold weather when you are wearing long sleeves.  You can get a really good pair for $25 - $35 or so.  They last a long time and are very cost effective.

I have three sets of the Weber Styles BBQ Tool Set and the wide Fish Turner. The Fish Turner works great on both fish and large chunks of meat such as roasts, steaks, ribs, etc. I also use it for small pizzas.  I bought my first set 15 > 20 years ago when they originally came out. They have been through my dishwashers 100 of times and still look like new. IMO they are a great bang-for-the-buck. You can find them on Amazon or most ACE Hardware Stores. The average cost is $10 > $15 per tool, so they are really priced reasonable, especially when you consider the quality.

I got over the desire for wireless thermometers pretty quickly.  I guess that must come with confidence and time.  I just don't see the need for it.  I agree that it can be nice to have but I check my grill periodically and know about when the meat is ready to come off.  If I don't have time to tend the grill then I don't cook :)

My idea of tending grill is rocking chair, cigar & something very cold or very neat in hand.

I've been getting reviews from some of the friendlier people in the Kamado world.  This is a new one that came out this weekend:

 

The review is now complete and you can view it at : http://hrmcreativebbq.blogspot.ca/2014/11/the-perfect-bbq-tek-chimney-cap-review.html

 

BTW, he mentions that this also helps with wind sheer across the top of the grill altering temperature.  That addresses one of Kamado Joe owners mentions as a problem.

John I notice that you do not list the Maverick PT-100 on your list. Do you now prefer the ThermoPop?

 

In looking at the Amazon ratings for both the ThermoPop and the ThermaPen the rating are consistently 5 star.

 

Even now there are quite a few very low ratings for both accuracy and time to register for the PT-100. It would seem that either some of the old ones are still being sold or that the quality control is not consistent.

      First attempt at chicken shawarma last night on the Joetisserie.
       
      Came out really good, very pleased with the result and so easy. Juicy, tender moist chicken, with gnarled crispy edges.
       
      Followed Smoking Dad's recipe from his YouTube video.

      I'm gonna do some baby backs this weekend and would like to hear some opinions. 
       
      1. Temp. I'm thinking low and slow at about 225 to 250
      2. Time - wrapped vs. unwrapped. 5 1/2 hours ish?
       
      I used to do mine in a pellet with the 3-2-1 method, although for BB's I did 3-1-.5.
       
      Let me hear your methods and why.

      Looking for opinions....
      Vision B, lava stone with hanger
      Reading posts here and looking at pictures of your rigs, I have a question.
      On line at different stores and amazon, I see a lot of spiders that will pretty much just replace the cross bars that hang the lava rock. There are also many variations that will raise the main grate to the felt line. Not considering all the options that raise the grate higher in the dome and slide in and out for various configurations of stones, half stones and additional grates for more levels of cooking and additional volume, how much does raising the main  grate from the OEM position to the felt like make?
      Pros? Cons? Improved temp and heat distribution? I realize it may be easier to access, Is that about it?
