December 18, 2020

All outdoor cooks have a style and flair unique to their backyard. Indeed, many outdoor cooks cultivate their personal style over years of trial and error. One of the ways these backyard ballers create and perfect a signature style is through their cooking accessories.

As advocates of all outdoor cooking, here are eight great cooking accessories that can help you create an individual cooking style your neighbors will envy.

The Perfect Knife 

Wüsthof Classic Santoku Knife

The saying goes, 'Dull knife, dull chef.' This saying doesn't apply to Wustoff's Classic 7" Santoku Knife. This knife is the ultimate in quality and comfort, holds an edge well, is remarkably sharp, and offers an easy to grip handle. What more could you ask for to handle all your outdoor cooking needs? 

A Tough Cutting Board 

For any prep work, the outdoor cook needs a stable and hardy cutting board. The Samson Outdoor Bamboo Cutting Board is the durable answer to all your outdoor cooking prep needs. With its solid bamboo construction, the Samson Outdoor cutting board minimizes bacterial growth and offers a safe surface that won't dull your knives.  

The Best Spices  

TexJoy Steak Seasoning

Southeast Texans are lucky to know their hometown TexJoy brand of spices and seasonings are the best meat flavor enhancers in the game. Luckily for the rest of the world, TexJoy sells its unique line of seasonings online! We recommend the classic TexJoy steak seasoning to kick up your next outdoor cooking adventure. 

The Ultimate Outdoor Broiler 

Samson Outdoor Broiler

It's no secret that we here at Samson Outdoor are passionate about our flagship 'Uno' broiler. We agree that it will revolutionize outdoor cooking and offer a great alternative to traditional grilling. The Samson Outdoor broiler is the fastest, most straightforward outdoor cooking device on the market.  


Our company was founded on a belief that anyone should be able to have a steakhouse quality experience in their own back yard, and the Samson Outdoor broiler allows top-fired heating up to 1600° F to allow for quick and consistent searing. With the most comprehensive warranty available in its class, the Samson broiler is a sure bet for those willing to venture into new and exciting outdoor cooking territory.


Strong Tongs  


When it comes to safe and reliable tongs for high-heat outdoor cooking, we suggest the William Sonoma Signature Stainless Steel 12" Tongs. These heavy-duty grabbers come with scalloped edges to easily secure food without piercing. They are constructed of nonreactive 18/10 stainless steel for outstanding durability—an excellent buy for any outdoor cooking enthusiast.  

The G.O.A.T. Skillet 

3 Nail Ironware 11" Fry Fan

Everyone knows a Grandmother with a well-seasoned cooking skillet. If you weren't blessed with such a person in your life, don't worry, you can create that for yourself! And we suggest you start with the 3 Nail Ironware hand-forged 11" Shallow Fry Pan. Featured on the Texas Country Reporter, this shallow fry pan isn't your average cast-iron skillet. Each skillet is made to order, hand-forged of carbon steel construction, and inscribed with a unique forging date.  

A Reliable Meat Thermometer 

The Meater Thermometer

Ever wish you could check the internal temperature of your protein without risking 3rd-degree burns? The techy Meater Plus meat thermometer has you covered and more. Insert the Meater probe into your protein before cooking, and two sensors will monitor both internal and ambient temperature. With a built-in Bluetooth repeater and a wireless range of 165 feet, this is an excellent buy for the outdoor cook who wants the latest and greatest gear.  

The Ultimate Accessory


The best addition to outdoor cooking adventures is the people you share them with. They are the reason why we gather, right?
