Portable Grill Light

Planning a party that will last til dusk or later? A grill light is a wonderful accessory. This stainless steel grill light is battery-operated and clamps on easily. NO more running in and out to "check" the meat color!

Beercan ChickCAN Rack

I have a friend that swears by this accessory; she says it makes perfect and delicious grilled poultry. "Instructions included with the rack make the process easy. Basically, the can is half emptied and seasonings such as Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and minced garlic are added. When heated, the liquid creates a fragrant steam that keeps the chicken moist."

BBQ Fire Starter Chimney

People who prefer to grill with charcoal rather than propane find this accessory indispensible. Charcoal fluid can leave a chemical residue on your food, but when you use a fire starter chimney, no lighter fuel is needed. Use some crinkled up newspapers and light.
