How to Make the Most of Your Grill: Get the Right Tools

Every grill master, pit master, tailgater, or weekend griller has at some point said, “I wish I had a _______.” You could make a hobby out of seeking the perfect tool, utensil, or gadget that will create BBQ nirvana.

With the rise in popularity (and sales) of outdoor kitchens, plus the myriad styles of smokers and grills, there’s been a corresponding increase in the development and marketing of ancillary products—all of those tools, utensils, and gadgets that are must-haves for the complete BBQ experience of your very own.

From multi-purpose options to one-trick ponies, there’s a lot to consider. So, before purchasing, ask yourself: “How often will I use this?”

If “frequently” is the answer, it’s probably a good addition to your BBQing arsenal. If the answer is “once a year,” there’s probably a multi-purpose item that has that function covered.

Grilling Tools: Grill Roasters

Roasting large cuts of meat or whole poultry on a charcoal or gas grill can be intimidating for less-experienced outdoor cooks.

However, the flavor and aroma of a beef roast, leg of lamb, pork loin, whole chicken, or whole turkey cooked with flame and smoke are incomparable and add new sensory dimensions that oven roasting simply cannot deliver.

Trying to manipulate a 14-pound rib roast or a whole turkey with tongs or gloved hands can be awkward, messy, and can lead to catastrophic results.

So, for those who want to venture beyond your comfort zone of burgers, hot dogs, and steaks, there are a couple tools that can open up a new panorama of tasting adventures created by you and your grill.

Culinary Classic: Carnitas

One of the staples of Mexican cuisine is the slow-cooked pork dish that originated in the state of Michoacán, known as carnitas.

The traditional method of preparation calls for braising a pork shoulder in lard until tender, much in the same way the French make confit, in which duck or chicken is simmered in duck fat until tender.

The literal translation of the word carnitas is “little meats.” The preferred cut for authentic carnitas is well-marbled pork shoulder, or Boston butt, which is cut into largish chunks of about 2 inches.
