Grilling Accessories You Need This Summer

If you’re one of the hundreds of millions of people who’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you’re probably really looking forward to get-togethers filled with friends, family—and food. After all the build-up, make sure that food is on point by advancing your BBQ strategy with the grilling accessories you definitely need right now.

Grill Like A Champ

First things first, let’s make sure your actual grill is up to snuff. This 8-in-1 combo grill is an Amazon #1 bestseller in its category. It uses wood pellets to provide flavor you just won’t find with any other fuel. Bake, grill, smoke, BBQ, sear, roast, char, and braise with this 4.6-star-rated combination pellet grill for $389 (reg. $439).

Are you a briquettes purist? No worries. This charcoal barbecue and smoker should get the job done for $139.99.

Prep for the Grill Like A Pro

Sure you could buy pre-made kabobs to toss on the grill, but where’s the fun in that? Show your food (and guests) some love by DIYing it with these 7.5″ barbecue skewers. As a bonus, you can use ’em in your oven in the off-season. Get the system for $33.

Carry A Torch

If you really want to impress your friends, light your grill with a torch. This Indiegogo-funded 400,000+ BTU propane torch is designed to light charcoal, wood grills, and smokers in the absolute coolest way possible. It can also sear meat, burn off grill grime, and finish creme brulee, but does any of that even matter? Be a renegade and add the GrillGun to your arsenal for $150 with the coupon code GRILLING22.

Keep Things Safe at the Grill

One good way to ruin a barbecue? Burn yourself at the grill (or with that awesome torch we just told you about). Think safety first and slip on a pair of these heat-resistant BBQ gloves that guard against temps of up to 1,472°F. Get ’em while they’re (not) hot for just $15.99.

You may also want to keep things safe, just in general. Stock up on hand sanitizer to stash around the yard, mineral sunscreen to protect skin, and a couple of bug zappers to keep rude-as-heck mosquitoes at bay.

Ditch the Guesswork

You’re finally going to see all your faves after countless months of avoiding most other humans—why would you want to spend your time standing at the grill, trying to figure out if the meat is cooked? This smart Grilling & Smoking Thermometer hooks you up! Preset temperature alarms, timers, and Wi-Fi + Bluetooth connectivity ensure you can stay on top of things while mingling. Track up to 8 different temperatures simultaneously, using your iPhone or Android device, and huddle around the bar instead of the barbecue. Get it for $99.99.

Streamline Your Grilling Tools

Who needs a bulky set of barbecue tools that are annoying to clean and hard to store when you could swap in this multipurpose Pitmaster grilling tool? For just $21.99, you’ll be able to slice, flip, and adjust food plus pop open whatever bottles you’ve got stashed in your cooler. Designed by 4-time world barbecue champion Myron Mixon, this all-in-one will help you be the master of your grilling domain.

Want to streamline the cleanup process too? We’ve got two words for you: Grill Mats. They’re one of the most useful grilling accessories of all time.

Whether your focus is major barbecue events like Memorial Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day, or you’re the type to bust out the BBQ for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’ll benefit from adding these grilling accessories to your collection.
