1. Weber tongs
The best tool I have. The longer the better – they should act like an extension of your arm.
2. Seasoned wood
I always cook with seasoned wood, either for smoking or making fresh charcoal. Plus, it’s not only a heat source; its an ingredient, as it will definitely flavour your food.
The essential flavour enhancer. I like Maldon, as it crushes perfectly on your fingers. Melts beautifully onto a steak.
4. Day-old baked potatoes
I do so much with these things. Chips, home fries, hash browns. They’re the best carbs going. Seriously, day old baked potatoes make the best chips, I promise.
My whole thing is catertainment, so when we’re out cooking we have to have tunes. It’s essential to who we are.
