Every Backyard Chef Need a set of Digital Grilling Tongs

I love gadgets, so when I saw an online ad for the Man Law Digital BBQ Tongs, I just had to have a pair. Little did I know that if I had waited a few days that I could have saved $20. The tongs retailed for $44, but four days after I had whipped out the plastic and order mine, the day before mine arrived by UPS, one of the cooking clubs that I belong to started selling them to its members for $24. Who cares! These things are the greatest invention since sliced hot dog and hamburger buns.

The Man Law Digital BBQ Tongs are “Smart Tongs”.

You will never overcook or undercook any piece of meat ever again. The Man Law Digital BBQ Tongs comes programmed for the seven most often BBQ-ed meats—Beef, Veal, Lamb, Pork, Poultry, Turkey, and Hamburger. To get the correct cooking temperature for one of those meats, simply select it using the push-button controls on the tong's handle. The two button control system makes them easy to master in a matter of minutes.

It speaks your language.

Are you more conversant with the Fahrenheit temperature scale or the Celsius temperature scale? That is not a concern when using the Man Law Digital BBQ Tongs because they display the temperature using both scales. Besides that, if you are grilling Beef, Veal, Lamb, Pork, Poultry, Turkey, or Hamburger and have selected that meat, all you have to do is listen for the audible beep to know when the meat is done to perfection. The tongs respond to a temperature change in 30-seconds so they do not have to remain in contact with the meat at all times the way most probe controlled temperature monitoring systems have to. The handle display is also backlit so they are easy to use when cooking out at night.

Long battery life.

The Man Law Digital BBQ Tongs operate using two AAA batteries—Batteries are not included—and is equipped with an auto power off features that makes the batteries last like the Energizer Bunny. With its 5-second response time, the fact that it turns itself off after 60-seconds of idle time is not a problem.

The tongs are dishwasher safe too!

As I said at the start of this article, I love gadgets, but the problem with most cooking/grilling gadgets that incorporate electronics is that you have clean them the old fashion way. Not so with the Man Law Digital BBQ Tongs because the handle containing the electronics slips off the metal tongs so you toss the tongs right in the dishwasher. Life for the backyard chef does not get much better than that.

Always a bit of a gap between what we want and what we need. I sometimes think that the only difference is whether we have it or not. We want it until we have it... and then, we need it. Marketeers are SO clever about using this little piece of psychological insight about most of us...

No doubt you are right David. My philosophy about want versus need is really simple--if I want something, whether I really need it or not--and can afford it, I buy it. All my grand kids will get a significant amount of money from my life insurance when my time comes, so I see no need to deprive myself of anything while I'm able to enjoy them

Nice one Jerry. I am almost tempted to go off and get one of the Tongs you have written so well about. However, I have a limitation; I am not a backyard Chef! How sad.

That really is sad because cooking out is such a treat. I BBQ all year round, even in the winter time when there is snow on the ground. I BBQ all year round but we eat what I BBQ inside when the snow flies.
Thanks for reading and commenting bronnamdi.

I'll probably write about more of them as time goes on. Many of the newer gadgets that I have I didn't buy myself because my young, significant other seems to beat me to it.
Thanks for reading and commenting, Steve.

You're such a technical man, Jerry, aside from literary. Great information.
