by Jolly Green Products on June 14, 2020

It’s time to fire up your grill, turn up the heat, and get grilling! But wait — just as the type of grill you buy is integral to the food you make, you should also make sure you have the right accessories to make the most out of your cookouts and backyard barbecues. You can have the best grill out on the market but if you don’t have the high-quality tools to match, you may run into a problem or two once you get started grilling pieces of meat.

Today, we’re going to count down the best grilling accessories of the year. They’re the most highly rated, purchased, and reviewed by users — and they’re perfect for all sorts of diverse uses.


1. Mercer Culinary Hell's Handle

We’re going to start with the Mercer Culinary Hell Handle, which is a 4 by 9-inch fish turner that also acts as an oversized spatula. it comes in several different colors and is made with stainless steel — perfectly customizable for any barbecue aesthetic. 

This spatula’s handle is unique in that it has high heat resistance, absorbing up to 50% less heat. It also has a textured finish for slip resistance and extra grip and the handle design is both sleek and sanitary. 

For grillers interested in making fish specifically, this turner is perfect, but it’s great for other things, too, like flipping over large pieces of meat when a regular spatula just won’t do.


2. Schmidt Brothers BBQ 4 Piece Grill Set

If you’re looking for high-quality barbecue tools sets, we highly recommend this four-piece combo from the Schmidt Brothers. It comes with a spatula, fork, basting, brush, and tongs. All of the handles are wooden, charcoal-colored, and fitted for natural grips — they also come with a leather handle strap. 

The tools themselves are made with stainless steel and you couldn’t get a more well-made set of items for your barbecue. They’re extremely high quality and well designed. 


3. Alpha Grillers Grill Bristle-Free Brush

Need something to help clean your barbecue after each use? Well, the Alpha Grillers Bristle-Free Grill Brush has been hailed as the safest and most effective tool to properly clean your barbecue after a cookout. This cleaner comes with an extra-wide scraper and 18 inches of stainless steel that work ideally with any grill. 

This brush is safe for grills of all makes, including porcelain. It’s sure not to damage any grate. At 18-inches long, the scrubber also gives you full control over cleaning.


4. Weber iGrill 2 Thermometer

As meat thermometers go, it’s hard to find one more professional than the Weber iGrill 2. This Amazon’s Choice product includes two meat probes but has a four-probe capacity so you can add two probes if needed. They’re heat resistant up to 716 degrees Fahrenheit and they have an LED temperature display. The item has Bluetooth connectivity and a 200-hour battery life. Batteries are included so you can get started grilling right away. There’s even an app so you can monitor the temperature remotely. 

Keep in mind that this meat thermometer is not waterproof — this is perhaps the only downside to an otherwise wonderful product.


5. Winco Coiled Spring Extra Heavyweight Stainless Steel Utility Tongs

These tongs have widely been called “the best tongs for the grill” this year and it’s easy to see why. They’re durable and versatile and made of stainless steel that’s sure not to rust. These tongs can be used by any professional or beginner chef and the spring-loaded and sleek design is easy to use. If you’re looking for a good pair of tongs, you can’t go wrong with these. Not one bit.


6. YFWOOD 18-Inch Grill Basting Mop Wooden

Passionate basters may find the traditional basting brush a little useless for their endeavors, so to them, we suggest this 18-inch grill basting mop. It holds more basting liquids and makes it easy to spread all over your meat. Mopping brushes help keep your barbecue as delicious as possible, infusing your food with moistness and flavor. There are three replacement mop heads included in this set which makes cleaning a lot less of a hassle. The handle is also long and sturdy, eliminating the chance of hand burns!


7. Proud Grill Slide & Serve BBQ Skewers

Last but not least, these stainless steel reusable skewers are perfect for cooking pork, beef, chicken, and vegetable shish kabobs. They’re an ideal grilling accessory thanks to their innovative design and impressive presentation. Food slides both on and off with ease. These skewers are made to eliminate mess and, most of all, to impress your friends and family with their sleekness and professionalism! There are a lot of skewer designs out there, but this one absolutely takes the cake.
