How To Use A BBQ Spatula, Tongs and Fork

Chef Remi

If you like barbecuing, chances are, you have some go-to BBQ tools. The most popular tools are the spatula, the tongs and the fork.

But, did you know, many people use them incorrectly. Apart from making their lives a lot harder, it can also mean they inadvertently ruin foods.

 

Here’s How To Use The Most Popular BBQ Tools:

1) Use BBQ Tongs To Turn Cylindrical Food Items, Like Sausages

Tongs are ideal for flipping foods that are not flat and are cylindrical shape. These food items have a tendency to roll around when using spatulas.

Tongs are invaluable for gripping and turning these types of foods. Opt for tongs which have 'teeth' which will allow you to grip foods better.

2) Use a BBQ Spatula To Flip Flat Foods

Tongs can break up and damage certain foods. For example, homemade burgers are more likely to fall apart as they have less 'gunk' in them to keep them clumped together.

Fish fillets can be extremely delicate and may fall apart, when turning, if you use tongs.

Use a spatula that is thin enough to slip under foods so you can easily flip them over.

Also, look for spatulas that can do more than just flip foods. For example, the spatula in our BBQ Grill Set has a meat tenderizer on one side, and a cutting knife on the other.

Now you can tenderize steaks and other meats, and cut them up too, all with one utensil.

3) Use a BBQ Fork To Pick Up Stacked Foods And Skewer Large Non-Meat Foods

Forks are fantastic for picking up stacked foods. Look for an angled fork with 2 prongs which make getting under and picking up a stack of food (such as burgers) easy.

Forks are also great for skewering foods. If you've ever tried to turn a potato, or other large vegetable, with either tongs or a spatula, you'll know how difficult it can be!

Tongs are great for gripping foods, but large, round objects can be difficult to grip. And using a spatula on these types of food makes them roll around.

A good fork where you can skewer foods like this is invaluable.

Please do not skewer meats with a fork! The fork is for skewering large, rounded, non-meat food items. Skewering meat allows the juices to escape, which results in a dried up, tough texture.

For meats, use the spatula or tongs, depending on how flat or cylindrical the items are.

Sue said: Hamburg pressing

Wow this press is the best I have ever tried. The weight makes it easy to press a burger but not too heavy to use. I was just making patties by hand because I didnt like other presses. No more now that I have this press.

Tracy Woytas said: Love it!

I've needed a new apple slicer for so long. I'm glad I found this one. I have arthritis and this makes it much easier to slice apples! My kids love apples and caramel dip. This makes it easy for them to slice their apples.

Paula said: Works better than my old set.

This set is a dream compared to my old set (they will be going in my yard sale). The measurements are very easy to read and I dont even have to get my reading glasses. The handles I like the best, my other set the handles were not very sturdy, these do not buckle under when full like my old set. My only wish was that the smallest one also had tablespoon measurements. I have used both hot and cold liquids, I even put a pound of butter in the medium one and melted it, the butter not the cups! So happy that I got these! thanks again Chef Remi!!!!!!!!!!!

Lollie said: See what you have been missing!

These grill mats are the best invention! Keeps the grill clean. Soft, or smaller foods don't fall through, or stick. Mats are easy cleaning in the dishwasher. Also great for baking cookies in the oven. Cookies slide right off! I am giving these as Christmas gifts. Highly recommend!

Jenny said: Very sturdy and Sharp Chef's Knife

I am very impressed with the way this knife is designed and the price is very affordable too. First time I got the knife, I could feel that this knife will be a great product because the handle feels strong and durable. The blade is sturdy and very sharp, I can cut meat and vegetables with ease. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and definitely will recommend Chef Remi products to all my friends and family.
