Greetings fellow gurus!  I have compiled a list of stuff here that I really like and recommend.  This is a great shopping list if you are looking for tools and accessories for your barbecue and grilling hobby.  Some of these items are provided with affiliate links.  If you purchase an item through one of those links, I get a small commission that is used to help support the costs associated with running this site.  Thanks!

 

If you would like to help Kamado Guru by doing your everyday Amazon shopping through my general affiliate link, please start here:

 

AMAZON SHOPPING

 

 

Kamado Joe Grills:

 

As most of you know, *I* am a big fan of the Kamado Joe grills.  The 2 and 3 series grills are available on Amazon and usually at a lower price than most other places.  They also have free shipping.  For answers to the questions regarding what's the difference between the 2 and the 3 series grills, see my detailed answer to that question HERE.  

 

Kamado Joe Classic 2:

If you buy a Classic or a Classic 2, I highly recommend adding the charcoal basket option.  This option comes standard with the 3 series grills but it's a great option to have for minimizing charcoal waste in the kamado grill.  I use these and I have ZERO waste lump charcoal.

Kamado Joe DoJOE (Classic)

Kamado Joe DoJOE (Big Joe)

 

This accessory is useful for more than just pizza.  One thing the Kamado grills are not GREAT at is browning.  If you put something like lasagna or mac & cheese on a kamado, it will NOT brown as nicely as it will in an oven.  This accessory fixes that!

Kamado Joe Joetisserie (Classic)

Kamado Joe Joetisserie (Big Joe)

 

The Joetisserie is possibly the most popular accessory for the Kamado Joe.  These TYPICALLY fit on other brands of 18" and 24" kamado grills as well...

Knives:

 

You need THREE knives to cover 95% of your knife tasks in the kitchen.  These include a chef's knife, a paring knife, and a boning/utility knife.  THESE are the three that I choose as my everyday knives.  They are excellent quality, inexpensive, and easy to sharpen.  

 

Victorinox Fibrox Pro 8-inch Chef's Knife

 

71pceby1tuL._AC_SL1500_.jpg

 

 

I just purchased one of these (8/1/2022) to use as my go-to all-purpose Chef's Knife here in the Man Cave.  

 

 

Victorinox 3.25 Inch Swiss Classic Paring Knife

 

71-b4usRwBL._AC_SL1500_.jpg

 

I just purchased one of these (8/1/2022) to use as my go-to all-purpose paring knife. 

 

 

Victorinox Fibrox Pro 6-inch Boning Knife

51YhlR8sJUL._AC_SL1200_.jpg

 

I just purchased one of these (8/1/2022) to use as my go-to all-purpose boning and utility knife.

 

 Two additional knives that you might enjoy having at your disposal are these two:

 

Victorinox 10.25 Inch Bread Knife

 

Victorinox 12 Inch Fibrox Pro Slicing Knife with Granton Blade

 

 

THERMOMETERS:

 

I have found that these THERMOPRO thermometers are on par with the best instant read thermometers out there in terms of speed and accuracy.  

 

ThermoPro TP19

 

1-1.jpg

THIS is the first ThermoPro thermometer I bought.  At $30, I believe this is the best bang for the buck in the world of digital instant read thermometers.  If you have a look at the Man Cave Meals YouTube video where I did the instant read thermometer shootout, you will see that this thermometer performed as well as the best of them...

 

 

 

ThermoPro TP620

 

1-01.jpg

 

IF you would like to try a little more formidable version of the ThermoPro, this TP620 might be a great option that still rings in at about half what premium instant read thermometers cost.  I do not have this one as of 8/1/2022, but I plan on getting one soon.  

 

ENTIRE THERMOPRO LINE

 

Have a look around the ThermoPro website and see what their other options are.  They have some great temperature monitoring tools besides instant read thermometers also.  Purchasing via these links will also help support Kamado Guru and Man Cave Meals.  

 

 

My Bookshelf:

 

These are books that I have on my shelf that I think are indispensable in my efforts to be better at what I do:

Some of MY favorite EXTRAS:

 

Tormek T-2 Kitchen Knife Sharpener

 

After having tried a lot of knife sharpening solutions, I have settled on THIS one here at the Man Cave.  It's expensive but I'm happy with it.

Comsmart BBQ Gloves

 

I have multiple pairs of these gloves.  These are the BEST option for handling hot grill parts.  Do NOT succumb to the idea of buying welder's gloves.  These will out perform those by leaps and bounds.

This is America's Test Kitchen's favorite chef's knife in the "reasonably priced" category.  They rate it as high, or higher, than many much more expensive knives.  I have a long melon knife made by Victorianox of the same steel.  It has held a very sharp edge despite cutting many, many watermelons in half.

Yes... I only have one of these currently but the three I just ordered should be here tomorrow.  I am gonna get away from the expensive flashy knives and start using these that I won 't feel guilty about if I knock it off the counter or drop it outside!  One of the ODD tendencies I have discovered with myself is that the knife I grab most frequently is the one I know is the sharpest :)

The best knife is a sharp knife regardless of what it is.  Although I have a very nice chefs knife it's hard for me to keep nice ones around and treat them well.  One of our most used sets is just a SS Henckel's set from the 80's.  Cheap, sharp and no fear of breaking it.

Agreed!  The SHARP knife is the best one :)

New member here,  interesting thougts on knives.  I have some very nice knives and some utility knives.  For large meat I fined the Victorinox-Swiss-Army- 47645 Cutlery Fibrox Pro Slicing Knife, Granton Blade, Black, 12-Inch the perfect knife.  At under $50.00 USD a great bargin.  Holds an edge very well, good balance and easy to use.

@John Setzler, a week or so ago, you mentioned that you replaced the motor on the Joetisserie with a heavier duty motor.  Do you have a recommendation for that upgrade?  

Thanks

This is the one I bought but I had to bend the flanges out to make it fit on the thick mount of the Joetisserie.  It's not pretty but it works and it has worked well.  The joetisserie mount for the motor is a NON STANDARD mount and it's difficult to find something that works without modifications.
