The Right Tool for the Right Job

bbq tools blog mobile

When it comes to cooking on a gas BBQ in the UK and Ireland, there is always uncertainty about what tool you should use for what type of food. Here is a simple guide that shows you how to master your craft.


You will need three tools to cook on a gas BBQ: Tongs, a spatula, and a barbecue fork. The Sahara 3 piece BBQ set features all the tools you need to cook any food. Use the tongs to pick up or turn sausages. Having a good grip is vital. With burgers, the classic slotted spatula will help you get underneath the meat and flip it over easily. Vegetables and skewers should be handled with tongs. Use the barbecue fork to pick up foods that other tools struggle with.

When cooking certain food items, it can be hard to know when it’s cooked. For this, we would recommend using a BBQ thermometer. The Sahara Digital BBQ Thermometer has you sorted for the job.

Making sure you’re protected.

The typical gas BBQ features grease splashes and dripping sauces. In order to avoid having to wash your clothes immediately after using a gas grill, it is important to wear an apron. The Sahara BBQ apron is just the product to ensure you never have to worry about grease stains on your clothes again.


After the gas BBQ is cooled down, then it’s time for some cleaning. Use a sturdy wire brush, like the Sahara wire grill brush or Sahara 2 sided grill brush to remove stubborn food from the gas BBQ grill plates. After the tough stuff is cleaned, use a damp cloth to wipe the grill plates and it’s clean!

Cover it up

After the BBQing has been done and it’s finally clean, it’s now time to put it away. But before you put any gas BBQ away, it’s crucial to have a cover. Having the best Gas BBQ cover, like the Sahara Premium BBQ Cover small or medium protects your gas grill from rusting and keeps it in tip-top shape!
