For Late Night BBQs: Flashlight Grilling Spatula

Flashlight Grilling Spatula

 

I’m sure you’ve felt it once or twice in your life. When it’s dark out and the night is young, that craving, that yearning for meat…cooking on the grill, with the smell of spices and barbecue sauce filling the air. Having a late-night barbecue isn’t the most practical thing in the world, but a utensil that might just help you make it happen is the Grillight.

It’s a stainless steel grilling spatula with a built-in LED light so you can see what you’re cooking, even in the dark. Use it in the morning, use it in the afternoon, use it when the sun’s about to set and when you need extra illumination. The Grillight is dishwasher safe and runs on two AA batteries.

It’s available online for $34.95.

This Is A Handheld Food Smoker

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 9.28.55 PM

BBQ traditionalists will probably have a fit at the sight of the Handheld Food Smoker, but having had the chance to try a meal prepared with a similar contraption, we’d like to tell them to keep a open mind. Clearly you won’t be making any fall-off-the-bone ribs with this smoke, seeing as it’s cold. But you will be able to infuse a bit of a smoky flavour into some meals, just as they’re about to be served. The device holds smouldering wood shavings, the smoke from which is blown through a tube thanks to its internal fan. If you get a little dome to go over your plate, you can fill it up with smoke and serve it like that to your guests. They’ll be delighted as they pull the dome off and the smoke spills out, while the food will pick up a tiny bit of the scent. How much flavour it actually picks up, however, really depends on the type of food being served; in our experience, we noticed that leafy greens absorb it a lot while the salmon tartare they were mixed with ended up tasting just like salmon.

$99 gets you the smoker, as well as a “1/2-oz jar of 100% natural kiln-dried hickory and applewood shavings harvested from renewable California orchards, four AA batteries, and a stand.”

Jag Grill BBQ Table Is Awesome

jaggrill_small

If you don’t think that owning this table will crown you king of the neighbourhood, you better think again. The Jag Grill is an octagonal table with an integrated firepit and dome, and grilling stations at every seat. Throw the heavy meats in the center, while each one of your guests is free to work on his sides to his heart’s content. Adequate airflow means your coals burn hot, while a modular design makes for easier cleaning. Just make sure to strengthen the locks on the door leading to your backyard, as yu may end up with a few more guests than anticipated.

It’s $2,500, although the website seems to be having some troubles at the moment.

Bison Airlighter Turbocharges Your Firestarting

Airlighter1350

Getting a good fire going requires two things: a source of heat and good airflow. The Bison Airlighter provides both at once. It’s a butane torch that provides a 4 inch flame that’ll ignite just about any combustible material in seconds. But more importantly, an integrated fan will also deliver a flow of air that should help you spread the fire around. Gone are the days of cramming your face into the smoke in order to blow on it, or fanning the flames with an old newspaper. You’ll have a pile of burning coals in seconds and won’t keep anyone at the tailgate party waiting. It’s $99 for the Airlighter, plus $10 for a can of Butane if you don’t already have one.

Ultrasound Device Checks Your Propane Levels

truma-propane-levelcheck-xl

If you’re enjoying the summer, there is a chance you’re using the inferior BBQing method known as the propane grill. Aside from it being a well known fact that cooking with propane is inferior to charcoal, you also have to deal with fill levels on your tank. How do you know it’s empty? You can knock on it, shake it, or lift it… all in an effort to figure out how much is left. Or, you can spend $90 and get the Truma LevelCheck. It’s a dead simple device that uses ultrasounds to check for liquids. Press it against the side of the tank, and an LED will tell you what’s on the other side: green means liquid, red, no liquid.

Tactical Apron Should Satisfy The Warrior Griller

11cd_tactical_bbq_apron

With BBQ season in full swing, we’ve had no shortage of BBQ-related items to report on lately. Add the above Tactical Apron to that list. Looking a lot like a long bullet-proof vest, it’s covered in a real MOLLE System, as used in the Army. This allows for the attachment of various MOLLE-compatible pouches and accessories, which in this case is going to be spatulas, tongs, and knives. It comes with 2 large pouches and 3 smaller pouches in which you can store salt and pepper shakers, or your phone. Whatever you need to do your job on the grill, you can store it on the Tactical Apron. It’s a pretty badass purchase, and at all of $35, is worth every penny.

S’More To Love Metal Tray For Making, Well, S’Mores

smore-to-love-xl

The arrival of the summer isn’t a short-lived affair where one moment it’s winter, the next it’s summer, and everyone moves on. For the colder climates, it’s a drawn out period during which you appreciate the long awaited thawing out and celebrate all things summer, all the time. For example, we’re going to get all excited over stuff like the above S’More To Love metal tray for making everyone’s favorite campfire treat, the good ole S’More. The tray locks in the Graham biscuits, the marshmallow, and the chocolate, six S’Mores at a time, so that you can just place them all at once over your fire (or in the oven) and be efficient about your cooking. After all these treats are great when you’re actually eating them, not when you’re crying about how they fell into the fire and now you have to start all over again.

It’s $15.
