Yes of course, barbecuing is more synonymous with Summertime than Springtime, but dragging out the grill after a long winter or firing up the campfire to barbecue is a great way to usher in the Springtime season. In fact, the largest barbecue competition in Canada fires up in early May, so there’s no excuse to start early – at least in the colder locations!
Prepping meats and vegetables requires a good, long and strong knife. Okay, let’s face it, most barbecue connoisseurs pile on the steaks, ribs and chicken which calls for a sturdy, long blade that can effectively slice through bones and meat. And if you’re out in the woods and just want to carry one cooking knife, any of these we're about to recommend will do.
The Roselli Littlecook Knife is a high edged knife built to chop anything from vegetables to meat and will cut through small bones with ease. The Marttiini Ranger 250 Knife is one serious knife that is suitable for butchering but will also cut through raw or cooked meat easily. Its stainless steel blade is nicely etched with wilderness scenes so you’ll be barbecuing in style. For the wilds or the home grill, the Ahti Leuku 180mm Knife will take on any large butchering task.
There is still a large group of grillers who appreciate expertly grilled vegetables, fish or pizza and we sell knives perfectly designed for prepping vegetables and fish and cutting perfect pizza slices. The Roselli Japanese Cook’s Knife is an all-purpose cooking knife with the ability to thinly slice meat, fish and vegetables. For detailed cutting or paring, the Mora Precision Stainless Knife is a great tool. Its full-sized handle with small blade provides tons of control over the tip of the blade. The Järvenpää Fillet Knife Eemeli is a classic fillet knife with a sharp, flexible stainless steel blade. With a blade length of 6.5” this knife is useful for filleting larger fish. Let’s not forget about barbecue pizza! The Roselli Eskimo Knife, or Ulu, is super versatile for chopping vegetables and meat, but also slices through pizza like no other! So, if you’re ready to barbecue, we’ve got the knives to make it even more fun.
