11 must-have items for grill time

Perhaps some grilling will be on the agenda as this summer continues and eventually winds down.

(Are we jerks for even suggesting that summer has to end?)

Regardless, we've come up with all the things your favorite griller could want.

We hope you love these recommendations! Just an FYI, Graham Media Group may collect a small share of sales from the links provided on this page.

1. Ultimate dual grill

Chances are your grill master already has some type of grill, but what would they love more than a new one? The gas side gives them the option of having convenience and more control over the flame, or when they want that special taste only achieved by using charcoal, there's that option, too!

2. Grilling master's tool set

These are tools for the most serious of outside chefs, with everything they could need. Not only are they high-grade stainless steel, every item inside the carrying case comes with a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

3. Rustic wooden cooler

This is my personal favorite, because nothing goes with grilling like a cold beverage. Not only is it stylish for the patio, it's got a convenient bottle opener on the outside and it's easy to put together.

4. LED light-up cornhole

Besides that cornhole is awesome, this set has LED light-up boards to boot. Um, cool! And let's be honest: Chances are, if someone is grilling, there will often be more than one person hanging out. Nothing like a little friendly competition to keep the entertainment going. With all-weather bean bags and an easy fold-up, there’s simply no reason not to get this gem. Think of it as a gift for everyone.

5. Durable LED grilling light

Let’s be honest, despite the cold beverages, it can get warm! So maybe your grilling expert wants to wait until the sun goes down for a little cooler weather (us cornhole players will appreciate that, too). This waterproof grilling light — 10 bright LEDs, to be exact — illuminates the entire grilling surface so there’s no more taking the meat inside to check it.

As one reviewer says, this thermometer has “all the bells and whistles,” without having to spend a fortune. It has a stainless steel probe that gets the temperature precisely and quickly, along with preset temperatures for several different cooking levels to suit any personal taste.
