It can be hard keeping track of everything you need when when you’re smoking a rack of baby backs, a brisket and a nine-pound Boston butt over ten or twelve hours. Even something as simple as grilling steaks or a few burgers can be a challenge for some.
At any time during the process, you may need a spatula or flipper, a BBQ fork, tongs, a meat thermometer, a spray bottle and – some of you – a brush for barbecue sauce. And that’s just the beginning. You’ll also want to be sure to have a good knife at hand (we’d suggest a Ka-Bar Warthog), fire-making capability, your phone and maybe a bottle opener.
Not to worry, though. We know just the thing that every dad with a Weber kettle will appreciate and there’s still time to have one delivered tomorrow.
The Tactical BBQ Apron with full MOLLE capability (both front and rear) may just be the best barbecue apron on the planet and will save you countless trips back inside the house for those pesky items you’re always forgetting. And just to let everyone know who you are and what you hold dear, there are two — count ’em, two! — Velcro fields on which to affix your favorite morale patches.
Since dehydration is every pitmaster’s worst enemy during hours of low and slow cooking, you might consider utilizing some of that backside MOLLE acreage for adding an appropriate hydration pack, though we can’t vouch for what may happen when you try to dispense a carbonated adult beverage like Thirsty Goat amber ale through that tube.
Please be sure to let us know how it works, though, if you give it a shot.
