Grill and Smoker Accessories
I can’t tell you how many times these gloves have saved my fingers and hands from a nasty burn. I use these every time I have to move meat or pick up a grate, pizza stone, etc that’s still too hot to touch. $14.99. Purchase
These racks are absolutely perfect for smoking beer can chicken. I purchased two so I can do two at a time. Simple to clean – just throw them in the dishwasher after cooking. $8.30. Purchase

There’s a reason this is the #1 selling grill thermometer on Amazon. It’s wireless capability is good for 300 feet and I can attest to that – it works throughout my entire house and yard.

I originally purchased this rib rack to fit on my 14″ Weber Smokey Mountain smoker and while it worked wonderfully there, it works just as well on a Kamado. Holds four racks perfectly. $9.99. Purchase
The Thermapen is a godsend to backyard BBQers because it precisely measures temperatures, to the tenth of a degree, in as little as 3 seconds. With the Thermapen, you’ll never serve another under or over-cooked piece of meat again! My full review. $96. Purchase
My wife gave me this set of grill tools last Father’s Day and I cannot say enough good things about them. Despite abusing them on a regular basis, they still look and function as good as new. Incredibly happy with this set of grill tools. $29.99. Purchase
