Shine some light on it

As the days get a bit colder, the sun goes down earlier. But a little bit of dark shouldn’t stop you from grilling the perfect dinner. That’s why these LED grill lights are the perfect accessory for any grill aficionado. They’ve got a magnetic base that lets them stick to any grill so that you can make the perfect steak no matter what time of day it is.

Flavorful meat? Yes please.

This accessory might look intimidating, but it’s actually just there to give you tender, juicy, flavorful meat on your grill. Yup, we’re talking about an injector syringe that lets you get your marinades and seasonings deep in whatever you’re cooking. Plus it looks absolutely wild, and that is always a bonus.

Don’t forget the basics

Ok let’s reign things in a bit: in addition to the injector syringe you probably also want a basic set of grill accessories. This kit comes with a spatula, grill fork, tongs, basting brush, and a carrying case. It’s got everything you need to get to work on the grill, and it’s all high quality.

Keep your grill clean and organized

Any good griller knows that an important part of the grill is keeping things organized and clean. If you don’t know where your tools are, or what you’re doing next, things will fall apart. This grill utensil holder is the perfect solution. It keeps all your grill accessories organized and neat in one place. It attaches directly to the grill, so you never have to worry about storage.

Speaking of cleanliness…

A dirty grill is no one’s friend. That’s why one of the most important accessories for any grill is a good cleaner. This cleaning brush will get off tough stains and its shape can get into all the nooks and crannies of your grill. It won’t rust, it doesn’t wear down, and it’s got a long handle to help you get to any spots that need cleaning. This guy does wonders for your grill.

Take it to the next level

Grills can cook a fantastic steak, but one of the biggest challenges can be getting the heat to spread evenly. The last thing you want is a burger that looks done but is still cold and pink on the inside. The solution? A basting dome. It sounds fancy, but at its root it spreads the heat evenly through your food to get the perfect sear. Delicious.

Keep your hands saafe

Any time you’re cooking it’s a good idea to have an oven mitt for handling hot dishes and items. But if you’re going to be outside and dealing with the grill, you might want something that’s a bit more specialized. Enter these heat resistant gloves. You don’t lose dexterity like you would with a traditional oven mitt, but the heat resistance lets you work on and around your grill without any discomfort. You’ve become a grill god.

Everyone needs a grill plan

If you regularly grill veggies or other small foods, you do not want to stick those directly on the burner. Seriously, it is a mess. Some people go the tinfoil route, but if you want to get the best veggies, the grill accessory that you need is a grill pan. It has slits that let the juices out while keeping heat flowing through the whole thing, and lets you manage smaller foods with ease. This baby makes your life so much easier if you are a grill fan.

Small but mighty

We may be getting towards the end of our list, but that does not make this accessory less important. In fact this might be your #1 friend while grilling: a meat thermometer. One of the downsides of grilling is that it’s not quite as precise as an oven. But modern technology can solve that with this handy meat thermometer. You’ll get exactly the temperature you want every time.

The claw

Few grill accessories are as satisfying as these shredding claws. Uses include putting them between your fingers and pretending to be Wolverine, making Edward Scissorhands jokes, and handling all of that good, good meat off your grill. While their specialty is shredding, they’re also helpful for holding meat while you carve, and flipping or moving meats on the grill.
