Normally I’m skeptical of BBQ accessories, like burger formers and jalapeno popper stands. but sometimes there are tools that work.
When my Kate surprised me with the Charcoal Companion basting brush I was skeptical at first. I was going to be smoking up some pork ribs that weekend when I’d put it to the test.
Normally the last 45 minutes or so on the smoker I like to spritz or baste my ribs with a mix of apple cider vinegar, BBQ sauce, water. Often times in spray bottles the BBQ sauce clumps up and doesn’t come out evenly.
This was not the case with the Charcoal Companion basting brush. I simple squeeze and just the right amount of liquid came out and the integrated silicon brush helps to spread it exactly where you want it on your ribs.
Clean up is a snap , just toss it in the dishwasher and it comes out clean as a whistle.
It will be a regular part of my grill accessory arsenal going forward. Thanks Kate for the thoughtful gift. It’s a winner. $9.97 at Home Depot
