Default Which BBQ toys did you initially roll your eyes at but came to love?

How I ever grilled during Winter without this is beyond me.

I'd never heard of Fireboard, it looks pretty good.
The appeal of this setup is that it is entirely improvised, cost $0, and will also show the density and quality of smoke billowing out the top.

That temperature control blower with the Fireboard looks like a game changer though. Remote temperature control is my next goal.

Not really an eye roller, but I hesitated on buying a Pigtail. The day it arrived I ordered 6 more for friends, and to date have given at least 20 as gifts.

I've been thinking about getting one of those. Do you recommend a particular brand or size?

I never quite understood why anyone would use a pigtail until I saw the griller at Jocko's in Nipomo in action. He's cooking so much meat so quickly & over such a high flame there's no time to clamp and release tongs. Dude was flying and it's awesome to see. Great results, too!

I have a couple pigtails & like to use 'em when I remember I have 'em.

This pigtail intrigued me into some google searching. While trying to figure out how one would flip a chicken wing with it I came across this:

Y'all are gonna laugh at me, but for me it was a chimney starter. For many a year, I used lighter fluid on my briquettes.

For me it's my latest acquisition - Weber Performer grill. For the past 30 yrs I've been cooking on a 14" Weber Smokey Joe and finally picked up a 22" Performer. Of course the grill area is a major benefit however when coupled with the propane assisted charcoal starter it's simply awesome and I smile every time I push the igniter.

That's easy. Pellet grills.

Now I own one and love it. Rec Tec Stampede. It is an excellent addition to my other cookers.
