Until a few years back, I didn’t believe in gas grills and never used a thermometer due to some inscrutable sense of pride. The result? Mostly good eats, but also a lot of waiting around for coals and occasionally biting into markedly undercooked or overcooked meat. It wasn’t until I loaded up with the right tools — starting with the grill, before moving on to thermometers, tongs, even a grill light, and gas-level indicator — that I started turning out perfect grilling every time. These are the best grill accessories I use.
