We try not to post too much snark here on Toolmonger, as that’s not really our style. But sometimes you just can’t help it. I caught this unremarkable BBQ grill over on Uncrate recently, and I almost dropped a brick in my shop chair: It’s probably the single best representation I’ve seen of the “manly men” craze and just how much some people will pay to pretend to be the kind of people most Toolmongers naturally are.

The barbecue grill may be this Toolmonger’s favorite tool. In that light, this past weekend we made an awesome discovery: as we were cleaning out the kitchen cupboards we ran across this awesome Weber grilling cookbook, which I had completely forgotten I had and can’t remember picking up in the first place. The book is almost as old as I am, but the recipes are timeless. What better way to prepare for the upcoming American famous outdoor grilling holiday, Labor Day?

When I had my house built eight summers ago, I never suspected the wind — and the wind damage — we were in for. We’ve lost shingles, given up siding, and been struck by lighting. For a Toolmonger who likes to grill out, the wind also hit me where it counted — the grill itself. We generally stored it by the fence to prevent accidents, but storms seemed to hit us during the few times we left the grill out on the patio. After purchasing two cheaper replacement grills which both subsequently ended up wind-totaled, last year I decided to buy a new grill and protect it to be sure it’d last.

My beloved Char-Griller Patio Pro grill has seen better days. The grill itself is just fine — the cast iron grill plates and the barrel are still going strong after tons of grilling and two years of being outside. The wood table and handle, on the other hand, are just about shot and look awful. Being the cheap-ass I am, I remembered I have a scrap pile and a few tools. This is a fixable problem.

Use Bear Paws to handle the heavy roast or grab that slippery ham. These plastic claws allow you to lift, move, and carve turkeys, hams, roasts and other large food without touching them, and since you’re grabbing the heavy food items closer than with a fork, you have more control.

If you were a Klingon, the Fork It Over from Backyard Warriors would be your grill fork. This mean-looking utensil lets you grab steaks without contorting your hand, and flip them by simply turning your wrist.

They make their patented barbecue fork from food-grade stainless steel and solid hardwood, and it works in either the left or right hand. You can purchase one for $15 or two for $24, including shipping.

For some of you, grilling weather may be approaching or already here. For others, there’s no such thing as “grill weather” or “grill time,” since ALL the time is grill time. As a member of the latter group, I was researching grill lights since it’s often already dark outside by dinnertime. Until now we’ve been relying on a giant, 20-lb., retina-searing emergency lamp, but it looks like more fitting options can be had.

There are a lot of silly things sold today, but the motorized grill brush tops the list. It makes you wonder if the person who signed the check to manufacture them has ever grilled. Is it really that hard to move your arm back and forth, and do you really want to hunt around for batteries when the brush dies rather than clean your grill?

Long-time Toolmonger and friend Joel Miller sent me some pictures and a link to a blog post about a project he took on to get familiar with his new Hobart Handler 140 MIG welder: a 55-gallon drum smoker. When I think “beginner w/inexpensive MIG rig makes drum smoker,” I envision a drum badly cut in half with some hinges metal-glued on, and maybe a coffee can smacked on the side.

Of course, Joel’s a little more together than that.

In fact, his smoker looks completely awesome — and better and more durable than most commercial models I’ve seen.

There will always be a soft spot around here for grills. They cook meat, they hold fire, and they’re a good excuse to drink beer — all good things. This completely custom “T” shaped grill built by reader Jmillerid is something of a work of art as boxes-with-fire go.

Created from two drums meticulously cut and fitted to form its shape, the grill then had a place for coals and vents cut in as well as racks and vents. All in all, we’d say it’s a damned good looking grill. Of course, the only way to truly test something like this is to break out the beer and cook something — which we hope Jmillerid does at the first available opportunity.
