Kitchen Tools

sort by: less expensive | more expensive | $$$ is NO Object

 

Everyone has their favorite kitchen tool and gadget. Some get used all the time and others end up in the bottom of the drawer. We are all guilty of buying the latest device to chop and slice our food, but one thing will never change, the greatest kitchen tool you own are your hands.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t use some of these things to help you along in your culinary journey.

Here are some of our favorites…

Grills & Smokers 

sort by: charcoal/wood | propane | smoker

 

Just like kitchen tools and gadgets, we all have our favorite grills and smokers.  Some prefer cooking with charcoal, others choose the convenience of cooking with gas.  And others have jumped on the trend of cooking with wood pellets.  What ever your preference, you will find your vessel here.  We have cooked on many different grills and smokers and found these to be the best for the money.

Sure, you can spend a ton of cash on infrared technology, or building you own outside kitchen with a wood fired pizza oven imported from Italy. You might even think the food tastes better prepared with them, but we gotta tell ya, it’s not what you use to cook it as is it as much as is how you choose to cook it.  Here are our favorite grills, smokers and a wood fired pizza oven anyone can afford.

Propane Tank Gauge Scale

PBKay

 

order from Amazon

or use this simple way to check the level of gas in your propane tank. Bring a cup of water to a boil and pour it over the side of the tank. Now feel the tank and look for the point where the tank goes from feeling hot (empty) to cool (filled with propane). That’s your propane level. Or, if you want to get crazy, A normal-size 20-pound capacity tank weighs 17 to 18 pounds empty, and 34 to 35 pounds after being filled. To determine how much gas is left, weigh the tank and subtract 18 pounds for the tank; multiply this number by 30 to determine approximately how many minutes of grilling time are left.

Bartending & Brewing

sort by: less expensive | more expensive | $$$ is NO Object

 

 

Why is it that BBQ and Bartending go hand in hand? Maybe it’s because backyard cooking requires backyard drinking. Sometimes it seems hard to keep up with all the Food and Beverage Trends. For Example: Is drinking bourbon still in? What about brewing beer at home? Is that still cool? Don’t even ask us about flavored bitters.

All we know is what we like to drink and how we like to drink it.

You don’t need to go out and buy a big bartending kit. Take it from us, all you need is a mason jar or two, good classic glassware, and some ideas. The rest is up to you. Trust us, all those fancy tools will end up in a drawer or collecting dust.

Have you ever tried brewing you own beer at home? It’s fun for sure, but if you don’t have the right space for all that cleaning and sanitizing, you will feel the frustration! All your hard work will be spoiled if are not vigilant about this. Guess what? Brewing beer just got a whole lot simpler, the PicoBrew is changing how we brew and we are very excited.

It doesn’t matter if you are into craft beer, if you like to imbibe, here are some gifts for you.

Smart Kitchen and Cookbooks

sort by: less expensive | more expensive | $$$ is NO Object | cookbooks

 

Technology has infiltrated our Kitchens.  It is now in our refrigerators,  ovens and coffee makers.  We are not sure if this is a good thing.  What we do know is that anything that makes cooking easier and more enjoyable is good.  There is a time and place for our smart devices, and eggs is not one of them. We all have used our phones and tablets to look at recipes while in the kitchen, and studies have shown than more than 30% of us use these devices when we cook, so let’s embrace being smart in the kitchen.

Digital Food Scale

by

order from Amazon

 

1 cup of table salt has almost twice as much salinity as a cup of Morton’s kosher salt because Morton’s kosher salt has more air space between the grains. But a pound of all salts contain exactly the same amount of sodium chloride.

Without a scale, making a brine requires a calculator. Flour and sugar have the same problem. Packed brown sugar or loose brown sugar. Big diff. Ever try to measure a tablespoon of honey? Did you get it all into the bowl or leave a lot of it on the spoon. There are plenty of conversion tables out there that help you convert. My favorite is the OXO Good Grips Stainless Food Scale with Pull-Out Display. It can weight accurately up to 11 pounds as well as fractions of an ounce. Push a button and it converts to metric. Put the bowl on the scale and push a button and it zeros out so the bowl’s weight is not included. The top comes off for easy cleaning. It will significantly improve your cooking.
