Create Your Own Gourmet Barbecue with 5 Timeless Buys
For outdoors aficionados across the globe, high summer means one thing: getting into the backyard and firing up the barbecue. So load up your briquettes and call up the family; with a couple of canny purchases you can build the perfect durable barbecue set.
1. The Inimitable Rosle Outdoor Grill
If you’re a real BBQ nut, Rosle's range of outdoor grills come with a unique air control system. This smoker from Rosle for instance is a clear winner for passionate barbecuers and fans of long-smoked fish and meat, thanks to its beautiful compact design, ease of use and seamless transportation. If you’ve only ever eaten pulled pork from pop-up stalls in covered markets, you’ll now have the power to achieve that gorgeous 18-hour slow roast and experience the real thing in your own yard.
2. A Flippin’ Fantastic Pair of Stainless Steel Tongs
Great, you’ve got a barbecue that can push heat of up to 800’F. Perfect for that gorgeous flame char and ideal for wowing the guests with steep chin-licking flames. But the glory of the BBQ is the risk – anything you chuck on a flaming hot grill is one minute from perfection and one minute from ruin. A pair of lifetime guaranteed tongs from Rosle will turn your meat and veg for every BBQ you host for the rest of your life.
With an extra long length to use over hot coals, this locking tongs also come with a patented mechanism that allows it to be opened and locked seamlessly with just one hand. There’s really little else you need for a basic BBQ – a good sharp pair of tongs is a versatile bit of equipment.
3. All other outdoor grilling equipment
If tongs just aren’t comprehensive enough for you and your dreadfully serious frying habit, our extensive range of outdoor grilling equipment cover all the bases with an affordable yet vast barbecue set for every prod, skewer, slice and grab.
From cooking thermometers, skewers, aprons and even gloves, we covered all the bases for that serious grilling aficionado.
4. A Bristolian Blowker
If you don’t know what a Blowker is, well, you’re in good company. We first encountered the astounding company that is Firewok for their flagship steel lifetime assured fire woks. After familiarizing ourselves with their entire catalogue, we discovered this ingenious little device was just as fascinating. If you’ve ever had trouble getting your fires going, from bbq to bonfire, this simple little blowing tube is here to save the day.
It works just as you’d imagine: just blow into it and channel the air towards the base of the fire. No more sticking your face into the red hot zone you’d be better steering clear of. The engineering may look unassuming, but this is designed to last immersed in furiously flaming cauldrons for a lifetime-and-a-half. Discover the magic here.
5. Solidteknics Flaming Skillet
For the perfect old-school accompaniment to your fanned flames, try a bit of new-age pan tech from the engineering innovators at Solidteknics. We often rave about the unique one-piece, seamless wrought iron design that's also proudly made in the USA. You already know about all that. But you might not have seen this beautifully sculpted flaming skillet, carved open to expose your food to the elemental touches of flame and smoke.
You’ll end up with an all-season pan taking on a classic blackened look like the cast iron cookware your grandma handed down. Look no further for your own flaming skillet.
