    I love my rotiserrie. I have produced some spectacular birds with it. It is definately a must have in my book.

    I guess it depends on what I'm grilling but, my favorite tongs and a roll of tinfoil always seem to find there way on my grill every time.

    Tongs are my go to tool....and beer or course. Heck, if i had enough beer i wouldn't even need the tongs....i'd just flip with my fingers :D

    A good feeling tongs easy to use and steady are a most on my grills. I don't like to poke my meat with anything till I'm eating it.

    2 sets of utensils- 1 for the food (Tongs,Spatula,Grilling Fork) 1 for the grill itself ( Tongs,Grill Brush,Mechanix gloves - for those hot spots & prepping the grill/smoker, Chimney Starter, Plenty of old dot matrix printer paper).
    Also keep a spare "food" set in case of emergency & not enough time to clean 'em up.

    Oh yeah & of course i can't forget the beer :) . Also bought a rib rack back in July , just prior to going on the veggies.....this thread just reminded me of that. I'll have to break it out & give it a run.

    Kind of....that's my "emergency set" i mentioned. Only go to it if the wife does'nt have time to or won't clean 'em up for me in between "raw" & "cooked".

    I can't be bothered w/ the cleanin' while i'm cookin' ,lol. If i fail , we all fail & that means no Good Eats ( which btw, is my favorite show on Food Network). I know i'm all over the place :).

    They moved good eats to cooking channel which is 232 on DTV in case you needed to know that information.

    Ahaah....i thought the show just got yanked a year or two ago.Alton always seemed to be on every other FOOD show , but could never find Good Eats.Guess i never bothered to investigate the guide on DirecTV to see if it moved elsewhere. Thanks 4 the info!

    Amen!--Mr. Brown never fails to impress...I consult his work often before starting a new project--so, does he count as a 'tool'?

    lol, i think i myself would classify him as a "resource" ..... tool may imply some negative connotations,lol. I get what you are saying though , he does his thing in a totally different way . & is superb at explaining the process , and even the history/thought process behind it.

    Where does everyone get their grilling tools and accessories from? I usually utilize this site: BBQGrillPartsUSA , but I am open to any suggestions to find some unique grilling tools. Thanks!

    There are lots of great places to get grill parts. I usually search several sites including Amazon when searching for parts. For remote thermometers I like to use http://www.amazenproducts.com/
