Pimp your Weber grill with a Cast Iron Grate. This long-lasting replacement for your standard steel or aluminum grate heats up faster, gives off more even heat and can withstand higher heat. And don’t forget the perfect grill marks.
Are you bad at getting your steak the right doneness for you and your guests? Doing 10 things at once with a beer in your hand while you’re cooking? The Charcoal Companion Steak Station 4-Probe Steak Thermometer may help sort out the confusion.
Keeping your grill surface clean is important… don’t just “burn it off” or expect last week’s burger gristle to make this week’s chicken breasts taste better. So when I stumbled upon the Grill Daddy Pro Grill Brush, I decided to give it the Brian’s Belly once-over.

We usually dislike so many things that Brookstone sells for your grill, so it was nice to see something that looked like it might be helpful for certain types of grilling. The Turbo Que is a fan that turns your gas grill into a convection oven.

Now here’s a fun way to start the grill. Despite the way it looks, the Shoot and Cook Rifle BBQ lighter will help you light your grilling flames safely.
