Monday Mailbag: Grilling and Playing on your day off

Ribalizer Rib Cooker – With the new Ribalizer rib cooker, you can skip the messy hassle of boiling, baking or all-day smoking, and still get those tender smoky ribs you crave. Cook up to six racks of ribs for a big group or just one or two racks for the family. Easy clean-up: high-quality metal Ribalizer rack and meat separator are durable and dishwasher safe. Pans are disposable. After cooking, just toss out the bottom pan with drippings and liquid. Rinse and reuse the top pan if you like. Four pans are included. $29.95; www.ribalizer.com

GrillGrates – Gas grill vs. charcoal grill? Doesn’t matter. Great grilling has nothing to do with the heat source and everything to do with the grate – where the meat meets the heat and the actual cooking takes place. GrillGrates are interlocking panels that work on any grill to form a new grill surface. Quite simply, GrillGrate cooks food better: meats are juicier, more evenly cooked and perfectly seared. It works on steak, chicken, pork, fish, vegetables … even pizza. Professional chefs, grillers and competition BBQ teams have embraced GrillGrate and its advanced science for amazing cooking results. Made in the USA. Starts at $39.99; www.grillgrate.com

BBQ Dragon – The BBQ Dragon is a fire-starting tool that starts charcoal faster than a chimney without using lighter fluid. It controls the heat of grills and smokers, revives smoldering fires, and heats ceramic cookers to pizza-cooking temps in just minutes. It works by blowing large amounts of low-velocity, cool air at fires, providing them with more oxygen so they burn hotter and faster. It’s cordless, hands-free, and portable so you can use it tailgating and camping or at the beach. It works for grills, smokers, fire pits, fireplaces, wood stoves and more. $59.95; www.BBQDragon.com
