Top 5 every day grilling accessories

Sam is a single father of two and a self-professed grilling expert who will be blogging in a series of BBQ articles.  

A grill brush is just a grill brush, right? Or is it? I decided to take a closer look at the every day tools that I take for granted and see how some can make my life easier. I mean, they might not do anything about my demanding job or the fact that my kids are cranky and tired when I pick them up from daycare, but these accessories are what I'm hoping will bring my BBQ game to the master level!

Quite seriously though, anything that can help me save time, achieve better results with less concentration, maybe make the food more enjoyable to eat for my picky eaters, or make the task of feeding these picky eaters more fun and relaxing is a game changer for me. 

It's also about those weekends when I don't have the kids, and I want to grill some steaks with the guys, have a couple of beer, and maybe even watch some sports.

Disclaimer: If you click on the links of my favorite accessories below, you'll be looking at them on Amazon and I am not responsible for the shape your wallet is in after that... because I know I'm screaming, "TAKE MY MONEY!":

So I read once that some barbecue brushes can lose their metal bristles and those could end up in your food. I'm not exactly sure how that would happen (ending up in your food, I mean) but it did concern me and made me start thinking that I might want to look for a better quality brush.

Reviewers love this BBQ brush, and it surprised me! Who knew that a simple tool like this could make such a difference to your barbecuing experience?

It's safe for every grill type including porcelain. It's heavy duty, well constructed and comes with a 5 year guarantee. It's dual head makes cleaning even the side of the grill (which I've neglected in the past) an easy task.

Gecko Grip Silicone Heat Resistant Grilling BBQ Glove Set

Because my BBQing skills improved so much once I was no longer afraid of burning myself.

These gloves allow me to grab food before it falls off the grill (especially practical for those hamburger patties that try to slide off the back of the barbecue instead of onto yous spatula!).

They also allow me to move the grill itself and get to the charcoal, it's amazing!

These gloves are so versatile and make a nice manly looking oven mitt! Once I get a wood fireplace like I want, I'm sure I'll be using these for that too! These are awesome and will keep your hands safe from heat.

BBQ Grill Tools Set with 16 Barbecue Accessories 

Using the right tools is half the battle! And I chose this set because it is almost exactly like the one I was given for Father's day (the one I was given included a meat injector -- see the bonus section) and I use it every time I grill.

I loved that this set comes with almost everything I need and in a professional quality. The case keeps it all organized and I have to admit makes me feel really cook when I take it out... Like I'm taking out some secret bio weapon or something high tech.

The reviews shows me that my impressions are right and this is an awesome set!

The Grill Sergeant BBQ Apron by Bigmouth Inc

Ok, so at first glance this BBQ apron seems more like a funny novelty item or gag gift than an actual useful/game-changing item, but after giving it a good look and reading customer reviews, I realized that I actually really want one.

This apron is a great tool. It will keep everything I need at hands reach and that means I can concentrate on my cooking. It's also great if, like me, you don't have much of a surface next to your BBQ on which to put on spices, rubs, beer cans, you name it.

It's a fun item that everyone is bound to comment on and just plain useful.

Jaccard Supertendermatic 48-Blade Meat Tenderizer

Because sometimes I'm cheap and not every cut of meat I buy is always premium quality, a tenderizer is a great tool to have on hand.

The blades on this thing create heat channels that help cook the meat 40% faster, and also cuts through the connective tissue that makes the meat more tough. You can have tender melt-in-your-mouth meat no matter your budget!

Bonus: Grill Beast - 304 Stainless Steel Meat Injector Kit with 2-oz Large Capacity Barrel and 3 Professional Marinade Needles

So since my Barbecue set used to come with a meat injector and the similar one I found for you doesn't, I wanted to add this item for you because I love it so much.

This one is actually much better than mine, so I might have to upgrade in the near future.

At the time of writing this injector had 5 stars and over a thousand reviews, this injector truly IS a beast!
