Grilling is my favorite way to cook, and sure, a set of dollar store tongs and a fork from the kitchen will work, but is that really how you want to grill? If you want to do it right, anyone will tell you to get the right tools for the job. Today we'll be taking a look at the 20 Piece Grilling Set from Mr Bar-B-Q, showing you how to be prepared for your next outdoor party.
Unboxing the Grilling Set
With a magnetic light fitted to the outside, and a pretty full case on the inside, this set looks to have it all. Straight from their site, this set comes with durable stainless steel construction. Extra long hardwood handles. Set includes: 4-in-1 spatula, tongs, grill brush, 4 skewers, 4 steak house knives, 8 corn holders and carrying case. Includes a bonus magnetic LED grill light.
Everything feels solid. The tongs, the huge spatula, and the brush, you can feel the weight when you pick them up, in a good way. I also really appreciate the functionality they've included; the spatula has two different edges for cutting, and even on the handle, a very solid bottle opener. The case is made from a lighter plastic, but as long as you aren't abusive with it, it looks like it'll hold everything just fine.
My First Hand Experience
The three most used items in this set are likely going to be the tongs, the spatula, and the brush. The weight of them is nice, and honestly, I really like the size. The tongs and spatula let me get in there when I need to without feeling the heat. The brushes long handles did the same, made it easier to get in there and work the brush better.
Everything else was nice to have too, the corn holders, skewers, and especially the steak knives. The set is aimed towards cooking for and eating with a group of four people, since everything is in fours, but it's still pretty nice. The light is an added bonus. We didn't get a chance to do any grilling in the dark, but it holds strong, and the little LED light does put out a fair amount of light.
Whether you're buying this as a gift or for yourself, this is a worth while set. The price isn't too high, and everything in it is useful. Like I said, you can get things done with a fork and a set of dollar store tongs, but if you want to do them right, then you'll want the right tools, and these are the right tools to do some real grilling.
