Wanna see what's in my drawers?

What? No, not THOSE drawers, you pervs.

I emptied the plastic drawers that I keep under my grill table to clean them out and couldn't believe how much stuff I had in there.

The contents included....
  • 8 instant read thermometers
  • 4 remote probe thermometers
  • 7 spatulas
  • 8 sets of tongs
  • 1 pair welding gloves
  • 2 pair safety glasses
  • 2 grate brushes
  • 1 MAPP gas torch
  • 3 cans spray oils
  • skewers (7 metal, 100 12" bamboo, 50 10" bamboo)
  • 4 silicone brushes
  • 2 rotisserie tines
  • 1 can compressed air (not sure why that was in there)
Sadly, that doesn't even touch the "garden bin" that holds some of our smoking woods, rib racks, veggie racks, steam pans, chimney starters, and such.

Wait. Why are you dialing the number to Hoarders?

  1. I'm kind of a candidate for hoarders myself, so you won't get any criticism from me. I'm so glad that's the drawers you were talking about!

  2. Wait. I didn't think that was bad at all. But then I tend to be a bit of a clutter bug - thankfully NOT of the hoarders variety. On the other hand, apparently I am in need of some outside plastic drawers. :) And a garden bin too.

    ... I think I have three of those in my drawer.

  4. Oh, don't worry. I've got a spice museum in the cupboard above the stove.

  5. Welding gloves? A blow torch? Fascinating! You'll get no comments about hoarding from me...I'm sure there are times, while you're grilling, that those welding gloves and blow torch come in handy! Just as long as your not soldering ribs to wings you're probably safe!

  7. Way to go, getting us all excited. And I was thinking it was high time we spice things up around here. ;)
    From the sounds of things, you should have a "garage sale giveaway" and share some of that bounty. It sounds as bad as my bowl collecting affliction.

  8. LOL it is amazing how we accumulate cooking tools! Dropped by to tell you that I made your Fast fajitas yesterday and the guys loved them. I'm running a link for you over at my recipe blog. http://www.alwayseatonthegoodchina.com/2010/06/tequila-fajitas.html

  12. I prefer not to know what's in my drawers. If I can't see it, it doesn't exist. Right?

  13. How odd, I have a bent up hanger, a pair of tongs, a meat thermometer black with smoke. a bent piece of galvanized steel rod and a dust pan turned into a fan.

  14. Two pairs of safety glasses! Is there a story to go along with them?

  15. I'm jealous of your drawer...just sayin!

  16. A man has got to have his stuff.

  17. I have a sudden urge to run to the store and buy my husband at least one of everything you have! We so lack in the grill tools department!

  18. Thanks for helping me not feel so bad about my own pack rat tendencies ;).

  19. I can't fit my junk into my drawers. Takes a whole garage and a shed (just where did you think I was going with this?), and it looks like cleaning them out has reached the top of the task list for this weekend.
