Grilling season is here! And rather than just slapping a patty directly on the grill or a hot dog on the grates why not go the extra mile and cook up something totally different? Instead of turning on the oven on or sparking the stove, keep the heat outdoors and cook up some of your favorite dishes on the grill. It’s easy to do with the help of these key kitchen tools.

Pizza Stone

You can achieve that nice charred chicken and blistered, caramelized veggies when

grilling fajitas on top of a pizza stone. Serve with tortillas and salsa for extra flavor.

You can also cook breakfast sandwiches on a pizza stone. Grilling makes them taste like they came straight off the griddle with an added smoky flavor, crispier bacon and toastier English muffins.

Sheet Pan

The summer calls for this seafood medley! A shrimp, mussel and chorizo-filled paella might look intimidating at first but it’s so easy to make on the grill. Prep everything beforehand, then drop everything onto the sheet pan and cover the grill.

Forget the skewers when you can make a ton of s’mores all at once. Ree Drummond lines a sheet pan with pre-assembled graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows, then putsthem on the grill. Wait until they get golden brown and deliciously melty before taking them off. This is a great alternative when you don’t have a firepit!

Cast-Iron Skillet

A juicy and tasty chicken dumpling can be savored all year long with this summery grilled version. The additional lime in the biscuits brings in a fresh and fun flavor to this comfort food. When cooking in a cast-iron skillet make sure it’s deep enough for this dish.
