OXO #WhatAGrillWants

Y’all ready for some BBQ? My boyfriend and I grilled up some ribs on the Green Egg this weekend, and I used my new supplies sent to me by OXO.

You would have DIED y’all. Not only does the Green Egg create amazing, mouth-watering BBQ, but my OXO tools sealed the deal.

Anything we’ve cooked on the Green Egg has come out to perfection with little to no effort. We’ve done steaks, brisket, and this time, fall off the bone ribs, y’all.

We started with a dry rub of brown sugar and spices, and then glazed a homemade concoction of BBQ sauce at the end. These ribs were perfect with a crispy, crunchy coating, and moist, tender meat.

Now let me tell you about my OXO tools, y’all. I’m 100% honest when I say I wouldn’t brag about a product unless I truly appreciated its worth and value in my kitchen. I have consistently been pleased and impressed with the quality of any OXO product I’ve bought, in addition to impressed by their customer service and attention to detail. If an OXO product breaks, they’ll be happy to replace it for you.

I’ve also gotten the chance to speak with various OXO representatives from the company, and they tell me *real* stories of meeting the engineers of their products to discuss advantages and disadvantages of various products, and how to better improve them.

They’ve really thought of it all! I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate in this summer’s #WhatAGrillWants campaign, and they sent me a variety of products to play with. I received a bladed meat tenderizer (which I really want to make a great Chicken Fried Steak with), Little Salad Dressing Shaker, Corn Stripper, Silicone Basting Brush, and 16″ tongs.

For this particular summer cook-out, I decided to use the Silicone Basting Brush, and 16″ tongs. The basting brush has little gaps in the center bristles to hold liquids for easy spreading, and tapered bristles to baste with ease. The angled head has a comfortable ergonomic feel, and keeps the bristles off the counter top when resting (YES!). Best yet for BBQ, it’s heat resistant to 600 degrees.

You wouldn’t think a basting brush would be a big deal, but I was amazed at how easily it really worked. Also, the silicone bristles made clean-up a BREEZE!

The 16″ tongs came in handy; it’s extra long handle kept our hands out of the fire when moving around our ribs. These tongs have non-slip handles, comfortable finger rests which make it easy to lift and rotate meat, and it locks closed for easy, compact storage.

 

I’ll be sure to share what I use my other products for, perhaps a grilled corn and avocado salad?! Mmm…..

Try an OXO product next time you see it, I often see them at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, and Kohl’s.

~Peace, Love, and BBQ Y’all!

**Ooooh, just a little FYI, I’ll be traveling to THAILAND Y’ALL, in July, so stay tuned for pics of THAT trip and food. IMSOEXCITED.

 

 

*Although I was given these products by OXO, all opinions are my own.
