Grill Tools For Summer
Vertical Chicken Roaster
I read a recent article about the phenomenon of Beer Can Chicken. In this detailed piece on theHuffington Post, Craig Goldwyn a self proclaimed “Meathead, Barbecue Whisperer & HedonismEvangelist”, sets out to Debunk Beer Can Chicken as a Waste Of Good Beer.In the article he confesses, “Yes, I know Beer Can Chicken tastes wonderful. Yes, I know youneighbors and family think your Beer Can Chicken is fabulous. It is fabulous. What’s not to love aboutroast chicken? Yes, I know there are millions of devotees and some bars and BBQ joints serve it. Yes, Iknow there are two books on to the subject, a blog, and scores of gadgets to assist the process. Yes,with the fowl perched comically on its legs seemingly guzzling brew through its posterior, Beer CanChicken is a showstopper. But Beer Butt Bird remains a gimmick and a waste of good beer.”Strong words and to some people, fighting words, but if you read the article all the way through youwill see that Mr. Goldwyn, supported by the three cooking scientists he quotes, is absolutely correct.The key is that the bird sits up, vertically, allowing for a more even cooking process achievinguniformly browned and crackly skin.To get all the benefits of Beer Can Chicken, buy the grill tool known as a vertical roaster. There are anumber of options and styles, but I like this model for its open design. The fat drips away into a panyou place below the grill grates. The main focus is to keep the chicken upright throughout cooking. If you want added moisture, try putting water or broth in the drip pan which will evaporate as the birdcooks.
 
Brinkmann vertical roasting stand at AmazonIf you remain unconvinced and still want to grill using the beer can method, this Brinkmann VerticalRoaster has a large base that holds an opened can of beer or other beverage during cooking.Moving on from a topic of potential blasphemy, we come to a much simpler look at a grill tooleveryone can agree is necessary: a grill spatula.
Big Head Spatula
My old grill spatula was getting loose and wasn’t long enough for the tasks I was now performing, so Idecided I needed a new one. I went to the local hardware store to see the available models. One thatcaught my eye was the Big Head Spatula from Charcoal Companion’s line of grill tools.A couple of things stood out immediately. First, the large 5″ square spatula head. Next, it was longer than my old model and felt very sturdy in my hand and finally the Rosewood handle was attractive.Once I got it – actually I bought two – I began to use it in my regular grilling. I loved it right away. Thelength allowed me to keep my hand and arms safely away from the searing heat of the grill. The widehead and sturdy construction made turning food, even large steaks, feel easy.Why did I buy two of them? I own a great grill tool called the Kettle Pizzawhich turns a Weber  charcoal grill into a blazing hot wood fire pizza oven. One thing you need to do when using the KettlePizza is rotate the pizza during cooking to prevent the side closest to the fire from over cooking. KettlePizza makes a tool to help do this, but I wanted something that could serve two purposes; enter the BigHead Spatulas from Charcoal Companion.The length and angle of the head make these spatulas perfect for rotating the pizza without lifting thedomed lid of the grill.

Adjustable Grilling Tray
I love to use my grill to cook foods that normally would be made inside in the oven; meatloaf for example. I do this to keep from unnecessarily heating the house during the hot days of summer.I have tried different grill tools to makemeatloaf on the grill, but I think I have found the perfect tool intheSteven Raichlen Best of Barbecue Non-Stick Adjustable Grilling Tray.The length of this non-stick grill tray adjusts to fit everything from fish fillets to whole salmon and beef tenderloins without taking any more space than needed on your grill. The grill tray expands from 16-inches to 25-inches, although I have seen a slightly smaller version sold in retail stores. The holes in thetray let flames and smoke through to flavor the food. The black non-stick finish should help keep foodsfrom sticking.Steven Raichlen adjustable grilling tray at Amazon
