I gave my wife a Chirstmas wish list last week that would rival Alvin's from the chipmonks. Most of the ideas were from the board.

I NEED!

a BBQ light
a Chili Grill
some branding irons would be novel
another chicken stand
a couple of chimney starters
a temperature gauge
a remote meat thermometer
an instant read thermometer
rib racks
a stainless steel injector (she just bought a plastic one last week)
16" tongs (mine are 12" and we all know length matters)
and a replacement grate for the grill.

Did I miss anything? Oh yeah, the big one ... I simply must have a pit some day! When I sell off some real estate.

I don't know about the wood chips in the stocking Grand Scale. If the fireplace gets too hot, your in-laws might start to smell like hickory.

No, it ain't burnt- it's barbecue

Henckels steak knives
wooden steak serving plates
grill brush
new iced tea pitcher
rotisserie tumble basket

We aren't traditional here on Christmas with ham or turkey so I usually do some stuff on the grill. Usually prawns (aussie style on the barbie) with steamed oysters/clams and some filets. I also enjoy creating soups and make a nice lobster bisque for our guests.

I would really like for someone to come up with a basting brush that doesn't loose any bristles. Please Santa tell me SOMONE makes one. Until that time, I will continue to use natural bristle paint brushes. I have several mops, but they are too big for my routine uses. A baby mop might do the trick, if I could find one? Right this moment I am going to order my Chile grill. I don't want everyone to think that I am not cool :cry: I might be the last one on the block with one, but better late than never I always say. Well, I don't actually ALWAYS say. Maybe from time to time.

Chagan - Try a bottle brush/mop. I found one at my local grocery store that was abot the size of your hand. Its designed purpose is for cleaning bottles but it has worked great for small mopping. The other solution is to make your own.
