It’s summer time and the grilling is easy with these five grilling gadgets! Sure, this summer burgers, ribs, and steaks will be sizzling at our bbqs but the Latin kitchen requires more specific grilling gadgets - for example, how do you smoke tacos without them falling through the grates? For all these cooking conundrums and more, we've found the five essential gadgets for summer grilling, Latin style.
Terra Flame, $49.99
For the ultimate in grill stones, our pick is the Terra Flame by Princess House. It’s perfect for the grill or oven. The unique and durable clay stone retains heat and will keep your food hot for up to 30 minutes, making it perfect for grilling meats and veggies. And the beautiful black stone tray has slightly fluted edges and is attractive enough to take from the grill to your dinner table. Even better: when the grilling is done, the tray can play double duty by acting as a cheese and fruit platter. This truly versatile stone will make entertaining a breeze.
The Charcoal Companion Taco Grill Rack is ideal for summertime taco consumption. This stainless steel rack makes taco bars easy to assemble; simply place the tortilla in the rack and build your taco right on the grill, as you cook and snack. If you're grill-less this summer, no worries, the rack can also be used safely in your oven. And bonus: the non-stick surface makes for easy clean-up.
Brinkmann Propane Gauge, $38.99
How many times have you started to grill some steaks or chicken skewers, only to have the propane run out before your meat is cooked through? The folks over at Brinkmann have a heavy-duty propane gauge that requires no assembly and will ease the anxiety of propane-doubt next time you roll out the grill. The multi-color gauge makes it easy to read and installation is simple: screw on the heavy-duty brass gauge directly onto the propane tank and then hook your grill to the gauge. It’s an affordable and durable gauge that will keep you from the embarrassment of having to finish cooking your burgers in the microwave.
Corn Grill Basket, $14.99
Charcoal Companion won over our little Latino hearts with its Corn Grill Basket. The grilling gadget is awesome and not just because it can hold up to four ears of corn at a time, but because it allows you to flip and maneuver on your grill without fuss or burns. (That means no more slippery corn falling off the grill!) And the basket holds everything in place to make brushing butter or marinades a snap. The hinged non-stick metal basket also allows for even grilling and easy cleanup. So if you want perfect, evenly grilled corn on the cob, then this corn grill basket is for you.
The Charcoal Companion Stainless Steel Chili Pepper Roaster is perfect for large crowds because it can grill up to 36 jalapeños at a time. Say good-bye to slow and clumsily stuffed hot peppers, as now you can turn your attention to your guests and actually enjoy your party.
