Anyway, here are some simple solutions to your common barbecue party problems using the most advanced developments in grilling technology. Not to mention, a few new and interesting accoutrements...
The Problem: You have nowhere to store your tools.
The Solution: A magnetic knife strip can easily do the trick, though Char-Broil makes it simpler with its own inexpensive, magnetic tool holder.
The Problem: It’s getting dark and you can’t see what the hell you’re doing.
The Solution: The Grillbeam. That is, combination spatula-and-tongs strapped with a flashlight. It can also open your beers. Because it should.
The Problem: You have a great gas grill. But occasionally desire the taste of smoke and charcoal.
The Solution: Napoleon’s Cast Iron Charcoal and Smoker Tray, which goes directly on your gas grill’s burners so you can cook over live coals.
The Problem: Your charcoal chimney is not legally insane.
The Solution: The Chimney of Insanity from Claw Dragon, which lights your charcoal faster than its peers, who also don’t have cool heavy metal names.
The Problem: Flimsy grill brushes that are warped and ineffective long after a single scrub.
The Solution: The Grand Grill Daddy, essentially a steam iron for your grill that leaves your grates sparkling in seconds while standing up to heavy, prolonged use.
The Problem: You want to make ribs. But you really just want to eat ribs.
The Solution: BBQ Hero Ribs, racks of baby backs dry-rubbed and smoked, then mailed to your door, so all you have to do is reheat them on the grill for a few minutes before eating them/taking credit for them.
The Problem: Barbecue sauce. Ew.
The Solution: Hak’s BBQ Sauce, from celebrity meat overlord Sharone Hakman, coming in nuanced flavors like smoked maple mustard and habanero pineapple.
The Problem: Your rub lacks charisma.
The Solution: For the Love of Rubs puts an artisan spin on its spicing, with notes of citrus and cardamom in its hickory rub. Plus, the containers look like a cover of Daniel Clowes’ Eightball.
The Problem: Your guests want red wine. You kind of want bourbon. But you also kind of want red wine.
The Solution: Cooper & Thief, a red wine blend aged in ex-bourbon barrels for noticeable whiskey notes. Sort of like the Reese's cup of wine and bourbon.
