When I think about fashionable essential grilling accessories, my brain immediately jumps to those “Kiss The Cook” aprons favored by goofy sitcom characters everywhere. But there may be a new top-of-the-heap coming to grillers’ wardrobes, and it’s a lot more useful than any novelty apron. It’s the GrillTimer, billed by its makers at Little Griddle Innovations as the first watch in the world specifically designed for BBQ timing.
The GrillTimer uses a simple rotating bezel as a guide to let you know how much longer you should leave a variety of meats on the grill, including New York strip, beef kebab, hamburger, and even portobello mushroom. Underneath, the watch is powered by a quartz Seiko movement, and is water-resistant, luminous, and has an extra window for the date, so it’s a pretty solid watch, even apart from the BBQ component.
The GrillTimer watch from Little Griddle Innovations is in its fundraising stage on Kickstarter here, and you can pre-order yours for $25 and up.
Please remember to use your enhanced grilling powers for good, not evil.
