There's an unmistakable charm in grilling. Whether it's the allure of charcoal flames, the aroma of hardwoods, the convenience of gas, or the sheer joy of grilling on a Sunday afternoon, during a tailgate, or at the much-awaited family reunion, grilling transcends to an art that's as complex as it is simplistic.
My grill collection, at the moment, boasts of charcoal and gas Webers®, and not to forget, a Kamado Joe Jr. (By the time this sees the light of day, my collection might have expanded - fingers crossed!) What I absolutely adore about them is their resilience. Despite facing nature's wrath and, let's be honest, my occasional negligence, they've never disappointed in delivering deliciousness.
One undeniable bonus of grilling? My kitchen remains pristine (well, almost). There's magic in grilling - it renders vegetables crisper, meat juicier, and fruits irresistibly sweeter.
Now, let's address the grill in the room: You don't need to splurge on the fanciest one in the market. Heck, you can even craft one yourself if you're feeling extra DIY-y. However, having a few trusty tools by your side can make a world of difference.
Chimney Starter - This is my go-to for lighting charcoal. Quick, efficient, and no-fuss.
Tongs - A robust pair of long tongs is a griller's best friend.
Grill Stone - While many swear by wire brushes, my heart belongs to grill stones for cleaning grill grates. They just do the job better.
Thermapop® - This trusty little thermometer makes sure all your foods are cooked to the precise temperature in seconds. I literally buy these as stocking stuffers for friends and family every Christmas
