Barbecue Tools Buying Guide

For a really great barbecue, you need a few supplies... meat ,veggies , possibly grog, definitely utensils and plates . The tools  for barbecuing are easy to spot, and easy to use. They all have long handles (if they don't, don't buy them, you don't want to burn yourself) and generally have a bit of string at the end to attach to the barbecue  when not in use. Some are sold in a set, and others are sold separately. There are a lot of different sauces  and marinades  to choose from to add some spice and flavour to your barbecue, so be sure to peruse a few next time you're out shopping.
