Other Cool Tools

Here are some cool tools that just don't fit our other categories, but some are pretty impressive.
double spatula
These double spatulas, or oversize tongs if you prefer, made from sturdy stainless steel, are the best thing to happen to burgers since buns and fish filets since tartar sauce. Slip it under the burger or filet, clamp down, flip and gently slide back onto the grates. No more broken burgers or filets. read more
Heavy D heat diffuser side view
Want more smoke from your pellet cooker? The Heavy D Stick Burning Heat Diffuser replaces your cooker's current heat diffuser and includes perforated chambers for holding wood logs or chunks that generate smoke for about 2 hours. Read our full review. read more
GrillBlazer GrillGun
Lighting your smoker, grill, or fire pit has never looked so cool! It also couldn't be much simpler thanks to the GrillBlazer GrillGun propane torch. The device looks like a pistol and a flamethrower had a child, providing plenty of firepower for getting charcoal or wood going in a matter of minutes. read more
Sear Daddy Universal Pellet Grill Searing Station
Looking to get a great sear from your pellet cooker? The Sear Daddy Universal Pellet Grill Searing Station replaces your cooker's current heat diffuser with a funnel shaped one. Its "flavorizer bars" and lava rocks create a dedicated searing station with 360 square inches of grill space. Read our full review. read more
Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Grill Press
The pre-seasoned Lodge Cast Iron Panini Press flat weights are great for making grilled cheese sandwiches and other paninis, and even bacon. When I make sandwiches I preheat the press on high on the side burner, and then put the sandwich on the grill grates and the hot press on top so I can cook both sides at once. read more
Bayou Classic Cast Iron Dutch Oven
Forget the fancy high end pricey Le Creuset French Oven when selecting a cast iron Dutch Oven. This is the one you want for cowboy cooking and camping. It's perfect for whole chickens or slow braising in the oven or in the grill. Add coals to the lid and it's great for baking. It also comes in handy around the house.. read more
weber rib rack
Expand the number of racks of ribs you can cook at one time with this handy tool. Thanks to the Weber Original Rib Rack For Grilling, you can fit five slabs of ribs on a small grill, holding them upright with enough airspace between them to allow airflow and smoke penetration. read more
ribolator
Adding the Rib-o-lator to the rotisserie on your grill allows you to cook multiple racks of ribs perfectly. There is a rod that connects to your rotisserie motor. Turn on your motor and round and round they go like a food Ferris wheel. That said, it can only handle narrow slabs that can be confined within the shelves. read more
The Ribalyzer
This is a clever way to cook ribs in two hours on a gas grill, but if you have a few hours, you can cook them better without the Ribalyzer. Essentially the Ribalyzer is a device for smoking then steaming, resulting in very soft meat that's not quite as rich in flavor as if they had been dry roasted and zero bark. read more
Gaskets
It may be cheap to modify, patch up or upgrade your current smoker. Sometimes you just need to toss it and get a new one. Here are some tools to help you. read more
Steak Markers
I love these bamboo steak markers as they are a great tool when trying to keep track of which steaks are cooked to what degree of doneness. They come in a pack of 500 and include five temperatures: rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, and well. Unless charred, they can be washed and reused. read more
Wood for Burning
What wood is the best for grilling and smoking? Who are the suppliers? read more
Old Mountain 10125 Double Pie Iron
Use the old fashioned Old Mountain cast iron double pie iron, originally designed for filled pies, for making two perfectly toasted panini style grilled sandwiches at once. Just butter your sandwich on the outside, open up the hinged mold, insert the sandwiches and put it over the coals, campfire, or gas grill. read more

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
