Pass the mustard? No problem - with a handy lazy Susan heaped with sauces and condiments anchoring your next outdoor feast. Typically used indoors, the seventies-evoking revolving trays take the grind out of garnishing, allowing each guest to augment their hot dogs, burgers and other barbecued delights with a flip of their own wrists. Don't have a lazy Susan? Although retailers such as Kitchen Stuff Plus sell large spinners for as little as $9.99, you can, in a pinch, also fashion your own, setting a small art-store revolving platform used for busts and models under a wooden cutting board, a square slab of slate or (as above) a round marble pastry board. Any or all would pass muster. - Michael Tong
