Every June we like to throw a little party. A party celebrating the warmer weather, fresh food, grilling season, and get everyone stocked up to celebrate the special man in their lives for Father’s Day. This year we have chosen June 8th for our Grilling Gala and we could not be more excited.
For those of you who missed out on the fun… here’s a recap of Gygi’s 2012 Grilling Gala (along with tips from the hand-outs and recipes too!)
Our Grilling Gala is in 2 days! (I hope you’re coming…) Since we’ve been talking grill for the last little while, it’s probably time that we talk about accessorizing, and I don’t mean hats and scarves…
Just as we all accessorize a little differently in life, each of us will accessorize our grill differently. Today I’m going to show you 10 grill accessories that we think are pretty amazing! (Note: they are in no particular order)
Yes, I know you must be thinking why on earth I would put a dishcloth on the grill accessories list. But why not? You have dishcloths for your kitchen, right? Why not for your kitchen outside?
We listed this in our Three T’s of Grilling post. So yeah, it’s that important. If you headed the advice, then you already have a thermometer to help you determine when your meat will be done.
One of the things that I love about grilling is how easy the clean up is. All you have to do is burn off the residue left behind from grilling and brush it off. A good long-handled, heavy bristle brush will get the job done in no time.
Yes, there really is such a thing! Now you can enjoy making even more delicious meals on the grill. From stir fry to bruschetta–now you’ve got a new way to wok!
Again, this one is part of the Three T’s. But it does make grilling so much easier and it’s safe to say that you may never get overdone meat again.
Weber’s great design of the saucing system allows residual sauces to drip back into the cup and not on your counter, making glazing, rubbing and saucing up your meat so much easier.
Adding chopped vegetables to your grilled dish is a cinch with Weber’s vegetable basket. In fact, this is one of Tim’s favorite grilling accessories.
We all know the fun of grilling is playing with the toys. So get some good ones! This spatula is made of stainless steel and heat-resistant silicone, so it keeps you safe while playing.
If you are grilling, most likely it’s meat. So you’ll need a meat fork. And if you are getting the , then you might as well get the meat fork to match. (We’re accessorizing, right?)
Last, but definitely not least: tongs. What good is grilling if you don’t have a nice pair of tongs to take the meat from the grill to your plate? These long-handled tongs keep your hands safe from the heat of the grill (not to mention the sleek look). Tongs are a grill master’s best friend. So say hello to your new BFF.
By following these tips from Weber, you won’t go wrong. And neither will your dinner.
Grilling season is upon us and so is Gygi’s Grilling Gala. In all the excitement that comes with the Gala, I thought I’d share some grilling tips. If you own a grill, there are thee things that you absolutely must have:
Grilling isn’t just for meat. Check out these delicious recipes for vegetables for the grill.
Once the grill is hot, the next step is to set the grill up for direct or indirect grilling. This is a critical decision because it will mean the difference between perfectly cooked and perfectly disappointed. Let Weber explain:
When it comes to choosing a grill, how do you know which one is right for you? At my house, we have a charcoal grill. I don’t have a preference either way. I grew up with a gas grill, but my husband grew up with a charcoal grill. Since he does most of the grilling at our house, we have a charcoal grill.
Our friends at Weber Grills have a few questions that may help you decide. Today, I’ll share them with you so that you can make your choice.
Happy Memorial Day! Here’s 4 delicious recipes for pork dishes on the grill.
