Spring is in full force and school is closing for the summer, so it is time to start throwing those barbecue parties where all your friends and family can come and have a great time. HomCo has everything to make your barbecue party one-of-a-kind with all the accessories, furniture, and materials. Visit our previous posts to help you pick the perfect grill and seasoning to make your May the best BBQ month yet.

What accessories are needed for the best BBQ party? According to Family Living Today, they suggest fifty must-have accessories which include roasting sticks, spatulas, and grates.


Get the perfect temp, every time.

Here at HomCo, we will make sure you get those accessories, but the one accessory that most people forget and that we have in stock is the meat thermometer also known as a food thermometer.

A meat thermometer is used to measure the internal temperature of meat, chicken, fish or other cooked foods. According to USDA, the only way to be sure food is safely cooked is to use a food thermometer to measure the internal temperature. USDA research showed that one out of every four hamburgers turn brown in the middle before it has reached a safe internal temperature. Using a food thermometer not only keeps you safe from harmful food bacteria but it also helps you to avoid overcooking, keeping it juicy and flavorful (https://www.foodsafety.gov/blog/thermometer.html).

Achieving the perfect combination of caramelization without over or under cooking can be tricky. By identifying the right internal grilling temperature with a food thermometer, you can take the guesswork out of grilling and make sure that your BBQ party is a great success. We carry ThermoWorks thermometers from the Thermo Pop all the way to Bluetooth Thermometers. Visit ThermoWorks to learn more about their thermometers. If you have questions, please ask one of our friendly associates to help you find the right fit for you.
