We are just one week away for Memorial Day, a.k.a. the start of grilling season. I love entertaining friends and family; and outdoor cooking is my thing – burgers, grilled vegetables, the works. Here are a few of my favorite outdoor cooking items from Mastergardening.com that make eating healthy grilled food as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Brisket and burger meat can only be enjoyed at their finest using a portable smoker grill from Mastergardening.com. A smoker grill will allow you to grill or smoke a variety of meats and vegetables at once. Perfect for entertaining numerous individuals!
2) Meat Seasoning Injector
Inject your favorite marinade into your meat easily with a meat seasoning injector. Instead of your marinade dripping off into the pan, the injector does the basting for you.
3) Meat Thermometer
If you are a fan of pork, you will know that cooking pork in its entirety is very important to avoid sickness. Use a meat thermometer to get an accurate reading on when your meats are ready to get off the grill and onto your plate (and your belly!).
4) Turkey Fryer
Have you ever had a deep-fried turkey? Moist and quick to serve in just 20 minutes. I highly recommend a Turkey Fryer Kit for your next holiday party (Memorial Day, Independence Day). Simply delicious!
5) Crawfish Tray
This deep-dish crawfish tray is essential outdoor cookware for serving crawfish, hush puppies, corn and crab. Steam them, boil them, enjoy them. Southern cooking made easy!
