The life of the party. Sur La Table

Every grilling party suffers from it at least once: dry, flavorless meat that has been either overcooked or otherwise improperly prepared. It can happen when least expected. A little distraction--of which parties naturally provide--and meat can go from succulent to cinder in the blink of an eye. Because grilling can at times be tricky, an ounce of prevention (or in this case 12 ounces) can be worth a pound of cure deliciousness. And if that little bit of forethought makes for a better-tasting, juicier steak, well I'm all for it.

The Moistly Grilled Cast Iron Grill Humidifier may not necessarily be a grill gadget designed to prevent meats from becoming overcooked on a hot grill, but by using liquid to deliver flavor, the accessory provides a natural safety margin. The slender cast-iron box measures just about a foot long and provides a vessel in which to pour liquids. When placed on the grill, steam is created imparting a depth of flavor to meats, seafood and vegetables that grilling alone cannot supply.

It's never too early to start thinking about grilling season, and while the weather outside may still be frightful, thoughts of warm, sunny days spent by the grill could not be more pleasant. Add to that a new layer of deliciousness and it may just be time to brave the elements to fire up the grill--just dress warm, please.
