Start with the Right Tools
Depending on the meats you are wanting to cook, you need to invest in gadgets to set you up for success. For example, a stovetop smoker advances your stove into a grill, perfectly preparing pork, fish, ribs, or chicken in an hour or less. If you are looking to throw some steaks on the grill, the cast iron skillet is sure to deliver, and if you have room for it, investing in a larger one will allow you to cook multiple filets at a time. On the other hand, an electric grill easily plugs into the wall and will cook your Korean-inspired meats to perfection. Also, who doesn’t love a side of grilled vegetables? If you aren’t much of a green eater, after one helping of char veggies, you’ll be begging for more. A grill basket allows you to grill vegetables over an open stovetop flame, and the flavor is worth every sweat.

Creating the Flavor
Whether you are looking for a smoky flavor, or a marinade or rub to prepare the meats, we have you covered. Oh, and not to forget the dipping sauces, which are a true essential.
- If you are interested in the smoky taste, wood chips are sure to make it happen. Oak and hickory deliver delicious red meats, and on the other hand, applewood will cook up splendid pork. For the veggies and fish meals, mild woods work best, perhaps cherry, cedar, or maple. Although, before using, make sure to soak the wood chips in water hours beforehand.
- In order for your tastebuds to dance after one bite, you’ll need to correctly prepare the meat. Liquid smoke compliments burgers and pork chops nicely, but you’ll also want to use a dry rub. For example. a Jamaican Jerk Dry Rub is packed with flavor, including spices like smoked paprika.
- The finale is all about the finishing sauces. After all, who doesn’t love an assortment of dipping sauces? Whether you enjoy a traditional A-1 sauce with steak or a citrusy glaze to top fish or chicken, you will thank us later for this reminder.
