Grill Tools and Accessories

There is a huge selection of grilling tools, hundreds actually, available to assist you with all phases of the grilling process. Some are absolutely necessary and others - not so much! As you expand the types of foods grilled you will undoubtably find that a number of these accessories will help you deal with the unique problems posed by various dishes.

Among the most basic and necessary are a pair of tongs, a spatula and a grill fork( to be used sparingly).  A chimney starter or electric starter will help you get your charcoal fired up without the use of lighter fluid - both for safety and taste. A basting brush will help you spread your sauces on to add flavor and moisture. And a spray bottle to help control sudden flare-ups.

But wait! There's more. You can find many variations of these basic tools plus an enormous variety of extra grates, grill pans, grill baskets for each type of food, racks, skillets, skewers, thermometers and flavored woods. There many that I have not mentioned - you just have to browse for find the one that will make your grilling easier and more fun.

Grill Daddy Grill Cleaning Tool

Probably my favorite grill tool, at least until the next one. O.K, my wife ordered this for me, and I set it aside thinking that this little plastic object could not possibly work. Wow!, was I wrong. Use after grilling or before your next grill session to clean the grates. The water dripping on the hot grates turns to steam and left over oil, fats and bits of food are removed! No more trying to use the kitchen sink to clean caked on crud off the grates:
