The Tools We Use
There are all sorts of gadgets and tools we have picked up over the years. Some were garbage while others became our go-to when working in the kitchen. This is a pretty comprehensive list of kitchen tools, appliances, grilling and smoking solutions, and anything else that we use on a regular basis.

Our Pick For Sourdough
Proofing Set, by Kook, Sourdough Bread, 2 Rattan Banneton Baskets, 2 Basket Covers, Metal Scraper, Plastic Scraper, Scoring Lame, 5 Blades and Case, Round Shape
This link includes two proofing boules, a lame (for scoring your bread), and scrapers.
We use these tools for our wonderful sourdough recipe.
Our Pick for bread
Jillmo Danish Dough Whisk, 12inch Stainless Steel Whisk
Dough whisk. You can use your hands instead. We have in the past and it was fine but we do prefer the dough whisk.
This thing gets used a lot in our bread recipes.
Our Pick For Grilling
Weber Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill, 22-Inch, Black
Every backyard or patio needs a Weber. Perfect for grilling as well as cooking with indirect heat. We use this at least once a week.
Our Pick For Smoking
Masterbuilt Gravity Series 1050 Digital Charcoal Grill Smoker Combo + Cover Bundle
All of our smoking and some of our grilling recipes are done on this. Super easy to run and so nice to set the temperature and go back inside. The phone app keeps you informed of time and temp as well. And the gravity system allows you to go hours without dealing with fuel.
Our Pick For Thermometers
Lavatools Javelin PRO Duo Ambidextrous Backlit Professional Digital Instant Read Meat Thermometer
When preparing meats it is imperative to nail that temp. This is a must.
Our pork butt burnt ends are an example of where we used this tool.
Our Pick For Mixers
KitchenAid KP26M1XOB 6 Qt. Professional 600 Series Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer
Every kitchen needs one of these. So many uses and is super reliable.
So many colors, as well 🙂
Our Pick For dutch ovens
Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Round Dutch Oven, 5.5 qt.
You can prepare so many dishes in this dutch oven. Big enough for a crowd but small enough for just the family.
Our Pick For French Bread
Chicago Metallic Commercial II Non-Stick Perforated French Bread Pan
Perfect for whipping up a couple of french bread loves.
We use this for our delicious hoagie roll bread recipe.
