It’s official grill season! One of my favorite times of year is right when the weather gets warmer, the grill gets cleaned off, and the BBQ is so delicious you can’t even decide what your favorite meal has been. But grilling is more than just slapping some delicious meat and vegetables down. It’s an art form like all good cooking. The best part is you don’t have to be a master chef to make grilling fun and delicious. You just need the tools to do so. So, we’ve put together a list of essential BBQ accessories you and your household grill masters need to make this grill season the best one on record.

  • 4) Tong Holder

    One of my biggest pet peeves, when I’m grilling, is not having an easy spot to hold my grill tongs. This tong and spoon rest from Uncommon Goods looks like the perfect solution. Unlike most spoon rests that cradle used spoons and then get dirty themselves, this version elevates the messy spoon end off of the surface. It allows you to keep the dripping to a minimum and for all of you grill folks it keeps the tongs closed even when unlocked!

  • 7) Himalayan Salt Plank

    I love unique finds like this one because it’s definitely not something I thought about until this very moment. According to Uncommon Goods, “Himalayan salt has a very stable crystal structure, which allows it to hold a temperature very well. You can chill it to use as a serving platter for sushi, or heat it over a grill or stovetop to cook your veggies. Cooking on salt gives it a greatly enhanced flavor over that of a frying pan.” This is definitely one of those products that will keep things interesting on your grill top all summer long.

  • 8) Cast Iron Corn Pan

    Are you a corn-grilling lover like me? This cast iron corn pan is a brilliant way to get your corn all nice and toasty without them having to roll around all over the grill. The best part is you can easily butter and season your corn in the pan and rotate each ear for proper basting. Sounds absolutely delicious if you ask me.

  • 9) Cast Iron Garlic Roaster

    And speaking of cast iron roasting, I love roasted garlic. It’s perfect on bread and it’s great for adding flavor to your meals. This cast iron roaster helps you get your garlic to that perfect roasted temperature and it even comes with a silicon tool that allows you to squeeze each clove out of its husk without burning your fingers.
