One of the most popular and enduring ways to cook is with a grill. Whether you opt for a charcoal grill or a gas burner version, your loved ones will appreciate the delicious meals cooked right in your own backyard. There are plenty of tools you’ll need to get BBQ grilling done right and make your life easier when you’re cooking on the grill.

These tools will be useful for any type of food, whether it’s meat or vegetables, and you will be able to host some amazing barbecues in no time!

Digital Instant-Read Meat Thermometer
Barbecue aficionados will tell you that a meat thermometer is an essential tool for any grilling enthusiast. A digital instant-read thermometer is especially useful, as it allows you to test the internal temperature of your food without having to cut into it (which can release juices and lead to uneven cooking).

The best part? These days they’re affordable enough that every cook should have one in their arsenal. There are two main types of meat thermometers: analog and digital. Both work well, but the digital variety makes it easier for you to see where exactly you stand with your food—and if you’re like most people who’ve left something on the grill too long, this might be just what you need!

A grill brush is a useful tool in BBQ grilling for cleaning and maintaining your grill. It can be used to scrub stuck-on food particles with ease, and it’s also great for scraping off any rust or dirt that may have accumulated on the grates.

A silicone basting brush is a great accessory to have in your kitchen. This brush will help you prevent food from sticking to the grill and enhance your BBQ grilling experience. You can use it with marinades, sauces and oils while cooking on the BBQ. It’s also very easy to clean so you can simply pop it in the dishwasher after use.

Grilling Gloves
Grills are very hot when they are in use, so it’s important to keep yourself as safe as possible from the heat by using a pair of grilling gloves. The best BBQ grilling gloves will be made out of material that won’t melt or catch fire easily and is thick enough for protection against the intense temperature differences between your hand and the grill itself.

Meat Gloves
Meat claws are a must-have for flipping and pickingup meats, especially burgers, sausages, chicken breasts and steak. Meat claws can also be used to hold vegetables or other foods while grilling.

You might think that tongs are the same thing as meat claws, but they aren’t! Tongs are better for turning small pieces of meat over high heat because you can use one hand to hold the tongs with your thumb and forefinger while using your other hand to turn the food with the other end of each tong.

Spatula and Tongs
This is the most basic tool you need for BBQ grilling, and will make flipping burgers, chicken breasts and veggies a breeze. Use a flat spatula if you want to flip your food easily without damaging it by scraping off pieces of meat or cheese as they fall off. A long metal spatula makes reaching into deep cookers easy too!

Whether you’re going for burgers or skewers, tongs are great for grabbing food that has been cooking over direct heat (or even indirect heat). They can hold onto food securely so it doesn’t break apart while flipping over burgers during cooking time – which means less mess in your kitchen!

That’s it! We hope you enjoyed this list of BBQ grilling accessories and found something new that may be useful for your next cookout. You can find some great accessories at Kankay Grills along with the best charcoal grills in Australia. Find the perfect match for yourself and start grilling!
