Just in time for grilling season, Charred from Bespoke Post delivers some heavy-duty tools for some hardcore grill-work. Bespoke Post is a men’s lifestyle subscription box. Each month, you’ll get to choose from one of the limited-edition boxes filled with an array of products built around a central, unique theme. There are usually two or three new boxes to choose from every month in addition to a selection of past boxes. One of the great things about this subscription is that you can skip the month if you’re not interested in it. You can save 25% on your first box with coupon code MYFIRST.
Bespoke Post always includes a booklet describing the care that went into producing your new treasures.
All the items in the CHARRED box.
Pineapple & Habañero Hot Sauce, 8.5 oz, Bravado Spice Co. ($9) Habanero and tropical fruit is a now-classic combination. Hot sauce goes with anything that comes off a grill, but the pineapple will definitely play nicely with pork and chicken.
Maple Wood Chips, 1-2 Uses, Klassen Wood Co. ($3?) Shipped straight from Canada, where they have nothing if not an abundance of maple trees. Can be used on an ordinary grill and don’t require a fancy smoke box to use (tinfoil will do). My bag was a bit dirty – some pulverized bark tagged along with my chips – but nothing the requisite soaking wouldn’t cure.
Walnut Handled Open Flame Essentials, 15″ long, Lamson & Goodnow ($80) I admit to having used $1 Walmart and dollar store grill tools, but there is something about using quality tools that brings out the creative spirit. These over-sized tools are handsome and very sturdy – solid enough to maneuver a pork butt or other large cut without losing it.
We also picked up these Extra-Long Suede BBQ Gloves ($30) from the Bespoke Post shop. Long enough to cover the entire forearm, these are perfect for working deep within a smoker, tending an oil drum grill, or just keeping the hair on your arms. The suede gives leather-like protection while retaining great flexibility. I may use these in the house too avoid those occasional oven door and broiler-coil contacts.
This would be an excellent box for Father’s Day. Bespoke Post has also updated its shop in advance of the main event, along with a Father’s Day Gift Guide (preview available now, full guide open on May 26).
