Barbeque Accessories in Food

Barbecue and grilling is an art which needs a lot of perfection.One really needs to put great care and attention to the food being prepared.This can only be done if the cook has all the right tools and accessories ready at hand.

Some of the most popularly used tools which are used for grilling and barbeque could be described as below:.

Grill Butane Lighter: One of the most basic things one needs for grilling is the butane lighter which is a much safer alternative to matchstick.It has a long handle and a nose that enables the lighting of the grill to be done with ease.

Meat Thermometer: Another important grill accessory is the meat thermometer which is vital to check the status of the food as to whether it is fully cooked or raw.The meat thermometer saves the repeated task of opening the lid of the grill to check upon the meat.

Grilling Tongs: Grilling tongs are a very useful accessory for grilling and barbeque.They should be flexible as well as strong so as to be able to lift a heavy piece of meat too.They should be so designed as not to damage the food while being lifted.Good tongs have a gripping edge that holds but doesn’t pierce the meat.Grilling tongs should fit in the hands of the user and give him convenience of avoiding direct heat.Tongs should not be too heavy which will make flipping the meat very difficult.

Spatula: A good barbecue spatula should be sleek enough that it can easily slide beneath the food being grilled and can turn it.If the spatula has other gadgets attached to it, then it looses its basic function of turning the food around while being grilled.It should be able to even slide beneath the delicate fillets of fish.This is important because there are some foods which will stick even if one uses a larger quantity of oil.

Stainless Steel Skewers: Skewers are meant to rotate the meat fully so that it can get roasted properly.One should preferably go for flat blade skewer which will rotate the kebab fully and not just itself.One should always go for stainless steel skewers which are more durable and are rust free.They have a much longer productive life.

Angled Barbecue Basting Brush: Basting brush is a necessary accessory while grilling.These brushes are used to apply large amounts of sauce to the food being prepared.They are easily cleaned, are heat resistant and easy to use.The long handle of these brushes acts a deterrent to direct heat and keeps your hands safe.

Grill Cleaning Brush: Wire grill brush is also an important component of the grilling accessories.One can always use a wire brush to clean up the food residues before they harden on the grill.It is a simple but a necessary tool.

Propane Gas Leak Detector: Gas gauge and gas leak detector also form a major part of the grilling paraphernalia.It is always safe to have a gas detector which can save you from unnecessary inconvenience in case of a gas leakage.

Thus, with the help of these tools and accessories, one can really produce exquisite culinary wonders which will leave a taste in your mouth for a long time.

Im wanting to use my cigarette lighter in my 98 talon as a push-button start… please help me!?

I have seen a few videos and things on the web with cars that people have done this. Will someone describe specifically what I would need to do in order to accomplish this? Also, I want the key to still be necessary. Basically, I want to turn the key to the on position and then press in the lighter, but still be able to use the key when i feel like it.

Chosen Answer:

It’s actually pretty simple, assuming you do not want to keep using the cigarette lighter as a cigarette lighter. You will need a standard 12v automotive relay.

Cut the positive feed wire to the cigarette lighter. Tape off the end of the wire coming from the power source. Connect the other end of the wire (leading to the cigarette lighter) to terminal 85 of the relay.

Cut away some of the insulation from the starter wire at your key switch. Tap in a new length of wire the same gauge as the starter wire. (I’d recommend soldering your connection here). Connect the other end of your new wire to terminal 30 of your relay.

Connect terminals 86 and 87 to a voltage source. The constant voltage wire at your ignition switch will work fine. Be sure the wire between terminal 87 and the voltage source is the same thickness as the wire connected to terminal 30. If you don’t tap into your ignition switch constant power wire, run your wire directly to the battery. If you do, be sure to put a fuse on the new wire at the battery.

Pushing the cigarette lighter into the socket will activate the starter (unless you have a manual transmission, in which case you’ll also have to depress the clutch). If the key is on, the car should start. If you want to keep the starter from turning over at all unless the key is on, you can do this, but it would require a second relay.

It’s important that all your connections are high quality. They have to be able to tolerate a fairly high current flow without a voltage drop.

P.S. Cusack_leigh has a good point; if you use the accessory power wire as the source for the relay, instead of the constant power wire, then the engine won’t crank unless the key is on. The caveat here is that the accessory power wire needs to be capable of handling the current load. It shouldn’t normally be a problem, but some vehicle ignition switches use different sized wires (and sometimes different constant voltage feeds) for various outputs. In other words, the accessory power wire may be smaller than the starter wire at the key switch. If so, it’s not suitable as a source wire for the starter. If the accessory wire is the same thickness as the starter wire at the key switch, then you can use it as the voltage source for your starter relay.

How do I remove scratches from a multi colored car?

Hi everyone! I have a Scion xB & it has a few lighter scratches & would love to get rid of them. How would I got about doing that? Keep in mind that the color is something you don’t see everyday. It is a paint that changes color depending on the angle and light. Since this paint is different I am a little concerned with wax or polish. Would was or polish harm the paint or finish? Thank for you time.

To see what the paint looks like visit this page:

Bye everyone! 🙂
The link above is wrong, what you’ll want to do is while in the page go to ‘destination’ & then ‘xb release series 4.0’. Sorry, I had the wrong URL.

Chosen Answer:

Wax and polish products will be fine on it as it is still paint. The color changing effect is just in the mica, mica is in all paints. It what gives them their sparkle.

Now depending on the scratches, depends on what is needed. If they are just light surfaces scratches from say a car wash, someone set a bag on top, etc. Then hit up a Lowes or Home Depot, go to the tool section, look in the sander area, for the Porter Cable Random Orbital Sander with 6″ pad. Be a gray/black round tube sander with pad down and comes with a handle like off a BMX bike. Be 9 normally. Then hit up a body shop supply store and get 2 foam pads, one white waffle foam pad (3M) and one black or blue waffle foam pad (3M). Then pick up some quality compound type product and also a deep gloss polish (Mequiar’s). Also pick up a 6″ velco pad for the sander, just screws in like a bolt, wrech will come with sander. This sander is like the modern day orbital polisher that detail shops use to use, but this is the new toy, we in the business call it ” the shaker “.

Get home, swap out the sander pads, put the white waffle foam pad (white = compound), but a bead of compound and polish on the car, bout 8″, side by side, and crank the shaker up to around 4/5. And go at it. You can shake around the car and even push so hard you stop this machine, and you WILL NOT damage the paint. So for stubborn areas, put more product and use some force and even crank it up some on the speed.

Once compounded/polish is done (if real bad, can do just compound, but this 50:50 mix just helps not create swirl marks). Now repeat the same thing but w/ the black or blue pad (black/blue = polish pad) and do it now with just the polish. Once all shook down, let the polish sit in the shade for up to 2 hours, if not longer. Then remove it using microfiber towels (the orange ones at Target are the best, automotive section).

Now whenever you want to wax your car, just pull out that black/blue pad and zip around you car, saves so much time. I can wax on and hand wipe off a car in under 15 mins.

Now if this doesn’t work, then the next step would be a good detail shop and let them use a high speed buffer on the scratches. Just be warned, they might put swirls in your finish, as not everyone is an expert with a high speed buffer.

For quick shine up between wax jobs, for that friday night out, get a spray bottle, then get a gallon of Orange Rain-X washer fluid. Put it in the spray bottle and squirt in about 1” of the polish into the bottle, shake. Now spray on the car and wipe around w/ a microfiber towel. By the time you get around the car, it should be dry and hazed over. Now take a fresh towel and just dust it off, 10 minute instant shine and makes it look like you spent all day decking it out (showroom secret there).

Your paint is called cameleon just so you know when you mention it to others, painters will understand that term.

PS – NEVER, I repeat, NEVER walk into a Maaco, please!! So many talk about them and have no clue how piss poor they are. They use the cheapest form of Sherwin Williams paint, its junk. And their employees don’t know a thing.

Automotive aromatherapy diffuser,electric diffusers

Automotive aromatherapy diffusers are used in automobiles to improve the fragrance of the air within the passenger compartment. They are normally plugged into the empty cigarette lighter socket of a conventional automobile. The electrical system of the automobile, among other things, energizes an internal resistor which provides heat to a fragrance laden pad. The heat from the resistor energizes the fragrance in the pad and dispels the fragrance to the interior of the passenger compartment.

One of the problems of such a device is that the heat from the resistor is not adjustable in present diffusers. The inability to adjust the heat leads not only to the inefficient diffusion of the oils in the fragrance laden pad, but also in circuit boards presently used, the risk of system failure and even fire are always present. In addition, present diffusers have no cover to surround the heated pad to prevent one from touching the pad and being burned.

It is therefore a principal object of this invention to provide an automotive aromatherapy diffuser that is capable of regulating the heat provided to the fragrance pad in a safe and efficient manner.

Another object of this invention is to avoid operational malfunction.

A further object of this invention is to provide an automotive aromatherapy diffuser that is safe to use and operate.

These and other objects will be apparent to those skilled in the art.

An automotive air freshener for insertion into a cigarette lighter socket of a vehicle has an elongated housing having first and second ends and opposite sides.

A first electrical contact is in the first end of the housing and protrudes from the inside to the outside of the housing. Second electrical contacts are on the opposite sides of the first end and protrude from the inside to the outside of the housing. The cross-sectional size of the first end of the housing is adapted for insertion into the cigarette lighter socket so that the first and second electrical contacts can be in electrical contact with the socket.

The first electrode control has an internal end that is connected to an internal electrode by an elongated conductive spring. Power is conveyed through the electrodes and the spring to energize several safe electrical control components within the housing to provide heat at varying temperatures to a fragrance laden pad and to operate the fragrance emitting phenomenon. A cover is connected to the electric diffusers and surrounds the pad to protect against injury.
