I am having a blast with our 30 days of grilling series. Who knew that grilling could be so fun?
Ok… my family did! 🙂 We just love to grill out, but so many people avoid it because they think it is a hassle. However, you really don’t need much when you grill. Today we are talkinga bout the tools you need to grill your next dinner. You really only need 4 tools.
1. A Grill brush
We talked about this already on how to clean your grill, but I wanted to emphasize that you really want to get a good grill brush. This will help you keep your grill nice and clean. I found some good ones for as low as $5.99 on Amazon.
2. Long Grill Tongs
Your regular kitchen tongs are just not going to cut it unless you want to singe the end of your fingers. You really need a good pair of long grilling tongs that you use only for your grill. These are perfect for flipping your chicken, hot dogs, corn on the cob and even your zucchini.
Right now you will find some nice grilling tongs for HALF price – as low as $5 shipped!
3. A Grilling Spatula
I think every “Grill Master” would agree that you have to have a good flipping spatula. This is a perfect for flipping those Sunday afternoon burgers. 🙂 Your plastic one or your small metal one in the kitchen just won’t do. The fire can get awfully high with a greasy burger. You need a heavy duty long handle spatula to do the job. They are not expensive though – they have them for cheap on Amazon too.
That is it! You only need 3 tools to grill your family dinner.
Sure… there are some fancy tools out there, but most are not necessary. Get your spatula and your tongs ready for an easy dinner in.
On a side note, I just spotted this cute grill tool kit on sale on Amazon for only $23.32 shipped. Plus you also get the cute grill glove which would really come in handy.
