Silicone basting brush: Silicone is heat resistant, so it performs well under the high heat of the grill.

Probe meat thermometer: Using a probe meat thermometer makes it easy to get the internal temperature of your meat without opening and closing the grill.

Apple cider vinegar in a spray bottle: Spraying your meat with apple cider vinegar is an easy way to simplify the typical BBQ "mopping," a process which helps keep your meat moist while it cooks.

Assorted smoking chips and chunks: Having a choice of fruit or earthy wood is an easy way to change up your BBQ flavors. Smoking chips should be used for meats that have short cook times. Smoking chunks should be used to create smoke for a longer cook time.

Use a wooden wine crate or sturdy box to store all of your grilling tools.
