#1 Charcoal: 

Only charcoal for this mountain man. The only propane you will find on this mountain is the tank used to light the stove inside the house. Charcoal is essential to giving guests awesome food from the grill.

#2 Charcoal Chimney:

No charcoal starter fluid on this mountain. Only a charcoal chimney full of charcoal and a couple of sheets of burning newspaper underneath. That’s all you need to get your charcoals hot. The chimney is key to ensuring guest funny taste that food can pick up from lighter fluid.

#3 Wood Chips:

David loves to smoke meat. When it comes to smoking beef, he prefers Mesquite wood. When it comes to smoking chicken or pork, his wood of choice is Hickory. The wood influences the flavors that will make guests come back for more.

#4 Tongs:

David has a set of “charcoal” tongs and a few sets for tending to the meat. Tongs are very versatile allowing you to grab things easily. He has a special long set of tongs for re-positioning charcoal and wood under the meat and he uses others to tend to the meats that adorn his grill. No loss flavor when trying to move meat around of the grill by piercing it with a poker around his grill. He likes to serve juicy meat to his guests.

#5 Rub:

There are two rub recipes that are David’s must haves when it comes to Pork & Beef.

#6 Sauce:

David uses a secret sauce made up of butter sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, ketchup salt & pepper. The sauce is great and is essential to ensure that guests have fun slopping around in their plates.

#7 BEER:

David’s beverage of choice is a frosted glass from the freezer with ice-cold beer. Beverages are a sure winner to ensure the guests have something cold to wash down their food and lift their spirits.

All these essentials are key factors for hosting a fun summer cookout according to David.
I would exchange the beer for wine… ?
