Barbecue/Grilling

Pull up a lawn chair, sit back, and taste a perfectly barbecued meal while you enjoy the summer from your own backyard. Can you see it now?  Well no one knows how much hard work goes into enjoying that first burger. 

  

Nothing is better than cooking outdoors, especially when you’re making a great meal for family and friends. And you don’t even have to stop when summer’s over because you can grill all year. Many of our customers brave those winter temperatures just  for those fresh grilled flavors. 

Woodstock Hardware has a complete supply of grills and barbecue necessities. We stock a variety of Weber charcoal grills and we special order larger gas grills on a weekly basis.  There are just too many models and colors to stock pile them all!   

If you are interested in a gas grill, we suggest you take a few minutes and review our corporate website, or that of your favorite manufacturer, to find the grill that best suits your needs.  Then stop in and see us and we will be happy to talk with you about your final choice. Don’t forget, all grills are not created equal and some with the same name on the outside are quite different on the inside.  We will leave it at that and let you stop in to learn the details.   

Visit our Barbecue Assembly Service page here to find out how Woodstock Hardware can make your life easy with free assembly and delivery of your next gas barbecue. 

 

We also carry a complete selection of grill and grilling accessories, including a full range of utensils, grilling baskets, flavored smoking chips, cedar planks, and even woks and pizza stones designed for the grill.  Woodstock Hardware can also provide you with cook books for great recipe ideas and we stock three of the best pickles around, yes pickles!

 

It is also safe to say that many of the 3000 items stocked in Diane’s Kitchen, our gourmet kitchen shop located on our second floor cross over to outdoor cooking and barbecuing.  Our cast iron Lodge cookware certainly does.  As does our popular Dreamfarm Clongs, and our fish turner. Visit Diane’s Kitchen Shop Our Gourmet Kitchen Shop.

BARBECUE AND GRILLING TIPS

In addition to the Barbecue and Grilling supplies and products you need, with over 25years of experience, Woodstock Hardware can provide you the technical expertise required to help you enjoy your outdoor cooking and dining experiences.  Here are a few tips to better outdoor grilling:     

  •  Open top and bottom vents before starting a charcoal grill and while cooking. Close the vents when cooking is finished to extinguish the coals. 
  • For proper airflow in a charcoal grill, remove accumulated ashes from the bottom before starting fire. Since charcoal requires oxygen to burn, anything blocking the vents will reduce the heat generated by the coals. 
  • Always use tongs or a spatula when handling meat. Piercing meat with a fork allows delicious juices to escape and makes the meat less moist. 
  • If you partially cook food in the microwave or on the range, immediately finish cooking the food on the grill. Do not refrigerate or let stand at room temperature before cooking on the grill. 
  • Make sure the grilling surface is clean and preheated. Scrub the grid with a dry brass-bristled grill brush after every grilling session and again once the grill is preheated.
  • Store charcoal in a dry place. Charcoal absorbs moisture readily and won’t burn well if it is damp.
  • Lubricate the grid or the food (or both) with vegetable oil. Do this right before you begin cooking or the oil will burn off before you start. It’s also a good idea to drain most of the marinade from food before placing it on the grill.            
  • Don’t try to turn or move food too soon. It takes about 10 minutes over high heat for the surface of a steak or piece of fish to cook enough so it will hold together and release easily. 
  • Watch foods carefully during grilling. Total cooking time will vary with the type of food, position on the grill, weather, temperature of the coals, and the degree of doneness that you desire. 
  • Set a timer to remind you when it’s time to check the food on the grill. 
  • Never brush on barbecue sauce until the food is almost cooked through. It contains sugar, which burns easily. 
  • Always serve cooked food from the grill on a clean plate, not one that held raw foods. 
  • In hot weather, food should never sit out for longer than one hour. Remember to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. 
  • Wash all utensils, cutting boards, and containers with hot, soapy water after they have been in contact with uncooked meat. 
  • Extend the life of your charcoal grill by thoroughly cleaning it once a year. Discard accumulated ashes and remove the grid and charcoal grates. Spray the porcelain surface with oven cleaner and let stand until the accumulated grease becomes easy to remove.
