The saying goes “a good workman never blames his tools” and I stand by this when it comes to my grilling. I have tasted fantastic Asados with the basics of equipment.

But that being said, if you are considering elevating your grilling game, its time you consider your Grilling Tools.

Grilling Tools: Choose Your Weapons Wisely!

On a warm afternoon, with friends and family gathered, beers flowing (or maybe some Argentine red wine), and the grill fired up—now that’s the best way to spend your weekends or downtime. But make sure your Grill and Grilling Tools are in good shape to put on the show, that the Argentine Asado deserves!

Choosing your grill tools wisely is like the initiation into the sacred order of grill wizards (LOL). Just as a chef is only as good as their kitchen, an asado maestro is only as good as their grill tools.

Yet, when you turn on your computer and start browsing the web, you’re met with a multitude of options and models of the same old tool.

Grill tools need to possess certain standout qualities—practicality, quality materials, and, well, being tailor-made for the job.

Having the right tools will help you get the job (grilling) done and will also save you from purchasing unnecessary equipment. So, here are the five crucial tools you need before you ignite those charcoals for your grill extravaganza.

Grill

When it comes to grilling, the options are as diverse as the types of barbecue. Portable grills, gas grills, charcoal grills with foldable grates, and grills of various sizes designed to fit any space. You can find a complete list of Parillas here. There are also grills with adjustable height settings, while others are specialized to reach specific cooking temperatures and desired finishes for certain types of barbecue. Whether it’s about convenience, size adaptability, or achieving precise cooking results, the world of grills offers a wide range of choices to suit every griller’s needs. Also considering you may DIY, here is a set of plans and steps for building your own Argentine Grill.

Wooden Cutting Boards

The boards are indispensable for cutting, serving, or presenting your dishes. Not only are they durable, but they also aid in better temperature retention for meats. Moreover, certain models feature grooves that prevent grease or meat juices from spilling, ensuring a tidy cooking experience. Whether it’s for meal prep or an elegant presentation, these boards are a kitchen essential that combines functionality with style.

Grill Knife

The knives in your kitchen are probably good and pretty. However, when it comes to preparing the finest of meats, you need knives of excellent quality and sharpness that can achieve precise cuts without compromising the texture of the meat. Each knife has a special shape for a specific task: boning, carving, bone-in cuts, and more.

The 5 Knives You Should Be Considering Owning are:

  • A Chef’s Knife
  • A Butcher’s Knife
  • A Paring Knife
  • A Boning Knife
  • A Carving Knife

Choosing the right knife for the job can make a significant difference in your cooking experience, especially when it comes to grilling. A well-designed knife with a sharp edge can effortlessly glide through meat, ensuring clean and precise cuts that enhance the cooking process. Whether removing bones, slicing meat, or handling tougher cuts, having the right knife can elevate your grilling game to a whole new level.

Long-handled tongs

Given the intense heat of the grill, it’s crucial to have a heat-resistant set of tongs with the right size that allows you to handle food from a distance but without being too awkward. Tongs are perfect for handling steaks, fish, and other more delicate foods. Choosing the appropriate material ensures durability and safety while grilling, especially when dealing with high temperatures. These utensils are indispensable for effortlessly maneuvering food items on the grill, offering precision and control without compromising on safety.

Fork or Carving Fork

Like a kitchen fork, a carving fork features three sharp tines ideal for cutting thick meats and other foods or holding food in place while carving.

While these tools will make your Grilling Experience easier, it’s not necessary to start with a full set; acquiring a good knife, carving fork, and cutting board is sufficient for grilling. Over time, you can gradually add more tools to your grill accessory set as you find the need for them. The key is to start small and expand as you gain experience.
