Warmer days are ahead which means grilling season is upon us! We have waited all winter for sunny weather and can’t wait to get our grills up and running for the approaching months. But how can you confidently gear up and grill out if you feel unprepared? We have gathered our favorite grilling tools, accessories, and general must-haves for the upcoming seasons to ensure you have what you need and are ready to go. Happy grilling!
How could we start with any other accessory than the coveted GRILLKILT? You cannot be ready to rock and roll down at the grill when you’re stuck trekking to and from the kitchen! Give your accessories and tools a place to live while you man the charcoals, and have your GRILLKILT buckled up from the start. The adjustable belt allows for comfortable wearing on any frame and sports many loops and pockets to hang and store your necessities. Easily wipe your hands on your towel or even the GRILLKILT itself, and cook comfortably knowing that you can easily toss it in the wash when you’re done. Save trips inside, save your clothes from spills, and save your reputation as the smartest and most well-equipped griller at the cookout by wearing your GRILLKILT all summer long!
A fan favorite that we have seen gain popularity in the past year is the Meater, a wireless smart meat thermometer! The Meater is one of the coolest thermometers we have seen with its features like Bluetooth connectivity and a sleek, small design. Not only can you monitor your cook from a phone or tablet, but it also has timing estimations and a guided cook system to ensure that you’re not over or under cooking your meats. It is helpful and handy and an amazing gift. Luckily there is also a long, skinny thermometer pocket on the front of the GRILLKILT that would be perfect for keeping your Meater safe and accessible!

BBQ Daddy Grill Scraper
While we are always looking for the latest and greatest tools to make our grilling better, it is important to also focus on taking care of your equipment! From the company that brought you Scrub Daddy sponges, check out the BBQ Daddy Grill Scraper! It is the last grill scraper you will need and one that will make your grill maintenance that much easier. Made of a unique Flextexture foam, the brush head hardens when dipped into cold water to provide a steamy and abrasive cleaning experience. But then, as the head heats up, the material softens and allows the cracks and crevices of your grill to be cleaned just the same. The adjustable knob allows you to change your grip angles and also pop off the head for easy cleaning. However, most importantly, the brush is bristle free! Horror stories of abandoned bristles finding their way into your meats, mouth, and throat are no more. This safe and effective alternative will keep your grill clean all summer long and can be securely kept in the long front pocket of your GRILLKILT!
