A cast iron griddle is the best way to ensure evenly cooked, perfectly seared food. Cast iron griddles come in a variety of sizes so be sure to measure your grill and choose one that fits before purchasing.

2. Instant Read Thermometer

Of all the grilling accessories on this list, an instant-read thermometer is possibly the most essential. No more guessing when the meat is done, or even worse, cutting it open and releasing those precious juices.

Simply unfold the probe, insert in the meat, and 4 to 6 seconds later you will know the precise temperature of your food. A handy chart is printed on the backside of the thermometer so you always know the correct temperature.

3. Extra Long BBQ Grilling Tongs

Flip, rotate and grab with these ergonomically designed tongs. The special thumb grips offers maximum grip for your hands, while the scalloped silicon covered steel heads allow easy control of the food.

4. Grill Light

Raise your hand if you’ve ever strapped on your headlamp while grilling. How about tried to hold a flashlight in one hand while flipping burgers with the other? Fortunately, there is a better way!
