An Overview On Barbecue Tool Sets

Once the weather begins to warm up, grill enthusiasts start planning summer get-togethers with family and friends. Gas or charcoal is purchased for the grill and meats are marinated. Before the feast can be prepared, the grill master needs a quality set of barbecue tools. Since there is a lot of variety when it comes to these sets, it may be helpful to review this guide before making a purchase.

Grill sets are generally made out of either wood or stainless steel, although it is possible to get a set constructed of bamboo. Stainless steel is typically ideal, as it doesn’t rust and is known for being durable. The Alpha Grillers Heavy Duty BBQ Grilling Tools Set actually uses a thick stainless steel for a longer life. Wood sets usually don’t last as long, as they are susceptible to cracking.

Examine the tool handles, and make sure they are comfortable. Some models feature non-slip handles for a firm grip even if the heat from the grill makes you sweat.

Take a look at the number of pieces in the set. Occasional grillers may only be interested in a set with the basics, such as a spatula, set of tongs and a fork, but grill masters would be better suited to a set with plenty of extras, like a basting brush, corn holders and a cleaning brush. The Cuisinart Deluxe Grill Set actually comes with a choice of 10 to 36 pieces.

Think about where you plan on using the barbecue tool set. If you do a lot of camping or beachside cooking, the Weber Stainless Steel Tool Set is a good choice because it is compact and portable. Other models, like the Home-Complete BBQ Grill Tool Set, even come with their own carrying case to make transport a breeze.

Check to see if the barbecue tool set you’re considering offers any extras that may be appealing to you. Some models have built-in bottle openers at the end of their spatulas, while others feature hanging hoops so you can store them on hooks in your kitchen. There are even models that come with forks with digital temperature displays that let you know when the food is cooked to a safe temperature.

DWYM Fun Fact

Humans have been cooking meals over fire since the beginning of time. Of course, the art of grilling has evolved over time and we now have an abundance of options when it comes to grills, tools and barbecue recipes. If you’re like most and love all things grill related, you’ll love the following fun facts:

  • May is National Barbecue Month. Despite that, the Fourth of July is the most popular day of the year for barbecuing with Memorial Day and Labor Day following at a close second and third.
  • A whopping 75% of adults in America own a grill. A total of 63% percent of those grill owners use their grills on a monthly basis with 48% of them utilizing the grill for meals year-round.
  • Beef wins out when it comes to the most popular food prepared on a grill.
  • Gas grills are more popular than charcoal grills. Only a small portion of the population actually use electric or wood pellet grills.
  • The most popular grilling tool is a set of tongs. Grilling mitts and thermometers come in second and third.
  • Although Thomas Jefferson enjoyed a good barbecue, it wasn’t until Lyndon B. Johnson became president that the White House hosted its first-ever barbecue party.

The Barbecue Tool Set Buying Guide

  • Look for a product warranty before you buy. Some companies offer a one-year warranty, while others are confident enough in their barbecue tool sets to offer a lifetime guarantee.
  • Before you clean your barbecue tool set, check to see if it is marked as dishwasher safe. If not, you can clean the tools using warm water and dish soap. Stuck-on foods can be tackled by making a baking soda paste out of baking soda and dish soap. Rub this non-abrasive paste over the hard to clean areas. It is important that you only use a soft-bristle brush when needed on stainless steel and not steel wool, which can leave scratches in your tools.
  • In the event that your barbecue grill tool set doesn’t come with a storage case, you can install a set of hooks along the base of your grill stand to hang the tools from. Other storage options include using a tool caddy, a barbecue apron with pockets or a barbecue tool holster.
  • Another essential item that some barbecue tool sets lack is a set of grilling gloves. For safety, you’ll need to wear these gloves while using the tools on the grill. Don’t forget to roll up your sleeves, as loose clothing can catch on fire if it gets too close to the flames.
  • While grilling, keep children and pets out of the area. It only takes one second for a tragic accident to happen. It’s also a good idea to have a fire extinguisher nearby. If you don’t remember how to use the fire extinguisher, re-read the instructions before you start grilling. Trying to learn how to use it when you’re in a panic is going to be tough.
  • When comparing prices, it is important to consider how many tools come in the set and whether there are any extras. For example, the Weber Stainless Steel Tool Set and the Home-Complete BBQ Grill Tool Set are designed to be portable and are therefore more basic. That means you’ll pay less for one of those sets than the Cuisinart Deluxe Grill Set, which has more than 14 tools, or the Alpha Grillers Heavy Duty BBQ Grilling Tools Set, which has an extra bottle opener and is made from a thicker stainless steel.
