Grilling tools and equipment to take your grilling to the next level, whether at home or on a camping trip, a quick weeknight fix or a more indulgent weekend bash.
A beauty that can handle a beast of a flame
Take note: grilling tools can be both functional AND stunning. We’ve been coveting these sleek porcelain pans that are perfect for keeping barbecue sauce warm on the grill. The handle easily detaches for serving at the table (though you’ll want to caution folks to admire them from afar while they’re still hot).
Condiments by way of haute couture
We see endless potential for the linear lines of these serving trays. The smaller compartment at one end is perfect for pairing condiments with your creations: we’re dreaming of compound butter for corn on the cob, chimichurri for slices of grilled steak, a spicy mustard for sausages…
When skewers vacation in the Southwest
Nobody wants to spend all afternoon flipping kebabs. Thankfully, these cactus-shaped tools are essentially three skewers in one and are easier to handle for quick turning. The flat prongs keep food from turning until you’re ready, which comes in especially handy for grilling shrimp.
Because he doesn’t want another tie…
Looking for that perfect thing for your dear old gadget collector for Father’s Day? This grilling fork doubles as a thermometer, alerting you when it reaches the pre-programmed temperature for your desired doneness. An onboard flashlight helps keep an eye on the grill after the sun goes down.
The pan that makes the grill your oyster
This grill pan is no one-trick pony. It’s just as capable of carrying grilled oysters to the table as it is making drop biscuits, shrimp, cornbread, even individual portions of mac and cheese! It being made of cast iron also makes it ideal for pulling it right out of the freezer to use for oysters served raw in the half shell.
If it ain’t broke, don’t change it
Similar to a good suit, this charcoal grill is a classic that’s never gone out of style. It’s largely unchanged from what you grew up with, though we appreciate the addition of the one-touch cleaning system, which makes removing the ash from the bottom a cinch. It’ll cook amply for four or so folks.
The only gaslighting we tolerate
This grill checks all our boxes. As one of Weber’s most popular models, it comes in both propane and natural gas versions to accommodate any backyard setup. The porcelain-enameled grill grates clean easily, the auto light feature means no fiddling with matches, and it handles food for up to seven people at a time.
Where there’s smoke, there’s flavor
Nothing beats the convenience of a gas grill. But nothing makes us go wobbly in the knees like the flavor of smoke. Load this smoker box up with wood chips (hickory, apple, oak, cherry, whatever you fancy) and you can, indeed, have the best of both worlds.
A travel grill as good as the real deal
This diminutive red wonder delivers in spades. Its upper limit of 750° F enables you to put a perfect sear on a steak or even grill pizza to perfection. And it’s an ideal size for tailgating, days at the beach, or camping, which means no sacrificing quality on the go.
Foolproof fish on the grill
Though the shape suggests whimsy, you’ll be seriously grateful for this fish dish when it keeps your delicate fillets from falling through the grill grates. Made of cast iron, it keeps your food warm when you bring it to the table and is marvie for vegetables and shrimp.
A box you’ll be stoked to open
Time to donate those old mismatched tools. This handsome tool collection has everything you could want—spatula, tongs, chef’s fork, skewers, and grill brush. Bonus: everything fits snuggly back in the case for camping or storing come winter. Pakkawood handles offer a classic appearance without warping or splitting.
A chimney so good you’ll dance on the roof
Waiting for the charcoal to reach optimal temperature is our least favorite part of grilling. This chimney starter helps get dinner on the table faster than ever before. The interior conical shape allows for better vertical airflow, decreasing the amount of time it takes to get your briquettes hot.
A French solution to grilled pizza
Want a soul-achingly crisp crust on your grilled pizza? This pizza stone can handle temperatures up to 900°F (!) for exactly that. The Burgundian clay makes it lighter to lift than most other pizza stones. And it performs just as well in cooler months in the oven, whether for pizza making or bread baking.
A plank we’d (happily) volunteer to walk
We’d be lying if we said we weren’t occasionally guilty of an overcooked or mangled fillet of fish from the grill. These cedar planks help fish retain moisture on the grill while sparing you from having to flip anything. The smoke imbues your dinner with flavor while it cooks. Bonus: smoking chips you can use another night.
