No one said grilling was an easy job to accomplish. Yet, summertime means grilling season, and nothing is better for your cookout than a spread of grilled meats or meat substitutes accompanied by your favorite BBQ sides. You can get the job done, though, as long as you have the right tools. Luckily enough for you, major e-Commerce websites, like Amazon, have plenty of items available to be ordered and easily shipped to your apartment community in no time, especially if you're an Amazon Prime member. Here is Oxford at Lake Worth Apartments’ top four suggestions!
Set of Silicone Basting Brushes
This set of silicone basting brushes is perfect for saucing chicken, sausage, and any other type of meat of your choosing. The two brushes are heat resistant up to 446 degrees Fahrenheit and different lengths, so they will accommodate any job on the grill. Your purchase also comes with various heads for even more versatility. Better yet, the handles are metal, so they will hold up for a long time, and the attached loops allow for efficient storage in your kitchen between grilling sessions.
Looking for that extra smokey flavor without investing in a separate smoker? This smoker box will certainly get the job done! Standard smokers take their time to heat up and reach a target temperature – not to mention all the time you spend actually smoking the meat, too! The beauty of a smoker box lies in its ability to expedite the entire process from start to finish. It only needs about ten minutes to get those wood chips smoldering, and you’ll be able to enjoy that undeniable smokey flavor soon enough.
Reusable Grill Mats
Get the perfect char on all your meat, fish, and veggies with some reusable grill mats. These mats, similar to the silicone basting brushes, are heat resistant up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Not only can they withstand heat well, but they are also non-stick and can be easily washed with soap and water. Speaking of which, these mats are an excellent way to keep the grates of your grill clean for less of a headache once your cookout simmers down.
Digital & Waterproof Meat Thermometer
Every good chef needs to concern themselves with food safety, especially when it comes to the temperature of your grilled meats. What we're trying to say is that one wants a side of salmonella with their corn on the cob! The best way to check your meat temperatures is with none other than a meat thermometer, and these days there are plenty of easy-to-read digital ones to get the job done right! Just make sure it's also waterproof for easy clean-up afterward.
