Our favorite instant read thermometer is this one from ThermoPro.
For an affordable leave in thermometer, we have this ThermoPro.
Our splurge meat thermometer is the MEATER, which measures the internal temperature of the food as well as the ambient temperature on a single wireless probe. The probe pairs with a free app on your smart phone via Bluetooth to allow you to monitor the temperature up to 165 feet away, or more if you connect it to your wifi.
It gives you an estimated finish time just like a GPS.
Our favorite knife for trimming fat from meat is this boning knife from imarku. It's small and sharp and does the trick.
We love trying new BBQ seasoning any chance we get, so we have a lot of favorites. The ones we use most often are Three Little Pigs Championship BBQ Rub, Bad Byron's Butt Rub, Famous Dave's Rib Rub and Chicken Rub, and just about anything from Meat Church.
Blues Hog caught on that many BBQ competitors were mixing these two sauces and started selling Blues Hog Championship Blend. We love this sauce because it combines the best of both worlds.
In order to safely BBQ, you must have a good pair of heat resistant gloves. Ours go up to 1472°F!
We use these Silicone Basting Brushes to apply oil, BBQ sauce, or glaze to just about everything.
We use a wire rack over a baking sheet for dry brining skin-on poultry like chicken wings, chicken thighs, turkey wings, and turkey thighs. We also use it for salmon and for resting seared meat like hamburgers and steaks to prevent the bottoms from getting soggy.
Pellet Grill Accessories
If you watch our YouTube Channel, you know we are huge fans of the Oklahoma Joe's Pellet Storage Bucket and have many of them. It has a mesh screen to filter out pellet debris, which will not burn efficiently in your grill.
While some pellet grills like the Pit Boss 1150 Pro do feature a direct heat option, many do not. Even with direct heat, the area above the firepot is small. We use a set of Grill Grates to sear meat on our pellet grills. They can get over 700°F and provide a larger, more evenly heated searing surface. We use them to sear steaks, burgers, turkey burgers, and more. They come in different sizes to fit different grills so make sure to measure first!
One of the biggest complaints we hear about pellet grills is related to temperature problems. We experienced these ourselves and found that using a Heat Deflector and a Flame Tamer from Smokes Like A Boss helped tremendously.
Some of our viewers recommend the Smoke Daddy Heavy D, which serves as a flame tamer and smoker box.
Electric Smoker Accessories
The second is the Masterbuilt Cold Smoker Attachment. This is truly a game changer for smoking with an electric smoker. As the name suggests, you can cold smoke inside the chamber by using this exterior heating unit. We find that the most useful feature of this product is that it has a large chamber for wood chips. This means you can smoke a large piece of meat like a Boston butt or brisket for many hours without having to refill the wood chips!
Wood Pellets, Chips and Chunks
Not all pellets are created equal. You will find that some brands of big box store pellets look like compressed sawdust and crumble into dust easily. For a mid-price brand of pellets, we like Bear Mountain Brand.
To save money, we place these high end pellets in a pellet tube smoker and use the less expensive pellets in the hopper for heat.
One of our favorite ways to add smoke flavor on a pellet grill is by using a firebox with charcoal and real wood chunks. We get exceptional smoke flavor using this method!
In our charcoal grill, we set it up for indirect heat and add wood chunks on top of the charcoal.
We like the GrillArt Brush for gas and charcoal grills.
We use CitruSafe Degreaser Spray inside our grills to clean up grease on surfaces that will not be touching our food.
