Get Ready For The Summer BBQ Season (Giveaway) - CLOSED

GET READY FOR THE SUMMER BBQ SEASON WITH THE
GRILL WIZARD® GRILL BRUSH

Top rated accessory a must have tool for any backyard chef

As grillers everywhere look forward to a new season of backyard barbeques with friends and family there is one tool they should not be without – the Grill Wizard® grill brush.

The Grill Wizard, voted “Best Brush” by Cook’s Illustrated (July/August 2003 and again in June 2008), is the only brush that uses metal mesh scouring pads rather than bristles. The rugged stainless steel mesh pads conform to any grill grate size and spacing and work well on all non-Teflon surfaces, including porcelain whereas brass bristle brushes will clog with debris and wear prematurely due to the soft nature of the brass. The Grill Wizard is available online at www.toolwizard.com for $11.98, plus shipping. The Grill Wizard is dishwasher safe. When the pads wear out you simply replace them with readily available and inexpensive scouring pads from your neighborhood market.

The Grill Wizard is the last grill brush you are ever going to need to buy,” said Walter Boehringer, president of Barr Brothers Company. “According to the Barbeque Industry Association three out of every four homes has a grill. The Grill Wizard’s super effective scouring pads will make your grill look like new and provide the best possible cooking surface every time you use it. We manufacture and sell every imaginable grilling tool and this is the one accessory you simply must have.”

Additionally, Barr Brothers Company recently launched a new web site to answer any grilling questions, www.HelpMeBBQ.com.

Have you ever gone to the Internet looking for a new BBQ or grilling recipe, a product review or a new way to cook outdoors, only to find a maze of linked pages, pop-ups, or spam-ridden sites,” asks Boehringer. “At HelpMeBBQ.com we are dedicated to helping you find great information with ease. We offer free recipes, product reviews, tips, tricks and have monthly contests and drawings for great prizes."

Founded in 1873, Barr Brothers Company manufactures and distributes a broad line of industrial butcher tools, burlap sack needles, barbecue and cooking tools and accessories, fine cutlery and garden tools. The company is based in Redding, Calif. All are available on the web site at www.toolwizard.com.

I learned to "lube it up" before I grill! The website said to use a paper towel dipped in oil, peanut oil, vegetable oil or bacon fat and tongs to grease the grate before you start. Or go Mediterranean and impale half an onion on the end of a barbecue fork. Dip the onion in oil and rub it across the bars of the grate.

Put onions, garlic, sweet potatoes, leeks, and even corn in the husk directly on your coals. Roast, turning with tongs, until the skins are coal black. Scrape off the burned skin and the vegetable inside will be incredibly sweet and smoky. never thought of doing garlic that way~

yummy! I got the tip of the week from helpme bbq. sounds so great. Choose some thicker boneless skinless chicken breasts or regular chicken breasts on the bone. Marinate with your favorite marinade (we prefer a soy based marinade like Basque Norte) for at least one hour.

Place the chicken on the cool side of the grill, with the thicker side facing the coals. Cover the chicken with a disposable aluminum roasting pan: cook 6-9 minutes. Flip the chicken so thinner sides face the coals and continue grilling, covered, 6 to 9 minutes. Finish cooking the chicken over higher heat coals until dark grill marks appear, 1-2 minutes on each side. If you did not marinate prior to grilling then this when you can add some bbq sauce (we recommend Head Country’s original BBQ Sauce) to each side and still cook 1-2 minutes on each side.

My favorite tip is: grease the grill well before you start and get the grill HOT as well.

I thought it was kinda neat how they mentioned to lube up the grill with a paper towel with oil or bacon fat before cooking. I now know the next time I make bacon I am gonna save the fat and try it!

The hint I read that I didn't know what that to make sure the grill is hot enough for meat, hold your hand about 3 inches above the grill and it should be hot enough to make you remove your hand from the heat within 3 seconds.

Thanks.

Get the Grill REALLY, REALLY Hot
For meat: steaks, pork chops, hamburgers, etc…, hold your hand about three inches above the grill grate and count, “One Mississippi, two Mississippi, etc.” If “yikes” comes at two or three Mississippi, your grill is properly preheated.
