The Best Grilling Tools and Accessories on Amazon Prime for Memorial Day Weekend
Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner, and that means we’re going to be spending several days in front of the grill. It seems like the warm weather snuck up on us this year — wasn’t it basically winter a week ago?! — and we feel less “grill-prepared” than in previous seasons. Luckily, Amazon has several perfect grilling accessories to make any Memorial Day cookout a success. (And with Prime shipping, you probably won’t have to wait more than two days!)
Here are our favorite grilling tools and accessories on Amazon Prime for Memorial Day Weekend:
1. Best all-inclusive grilling kit: Grilljoy 6PC Heavy-Duty BBQ Grill Tool Set
Complete with a stainless-steel BBQ spatula, fork, tongs, grill cleaning brush, brush head, and storage bag, even master grillers will be satisfied with this seriously full grilling toolkit. Each instrument was designed for the easiest grilling experience possible, and the only material that touches the hot grill is stainless steel, so your food is safe from BPA. This item is on sale right now, too, so you can’t get better quality for the price.

2. Best grilling basket: AIZOAM Portable Stainless Steel Grilling Basket
If you hate making a mess and love a one-step cooking process, this is for you. This grilling basket allows you to grill whatever you want in a handy, easy-to-maneuver basket that fits on most grilltops. Grill baskets make for super easy maintenance and flipping of food items, and you can cook in “batches.” This basket is a great option for vegetarians or pescatarians who want to grill vegetables, vegan burgers, or shrimp separately from burgers and chicken. Best of all, it’s super lightweight, so you can load it up with however many burgers you want.

3. Best marinade brush: OXO Good Grips Grilling Tools Basting Brush
The silicone used in the brush is super high-quality, and it’s heat resistant — meaning you don’t need to worry about exposing it to higher heat while basting fish or meat. It’s also got an extra-long handle, so you won’t burn yourself or get too close to the burning grill top.

4. Best grilling planks: GrillingPlanks 12 Pack Cedar Planks for Grilling Salmon & Fish
Salmon is easily as delicious as a steak, and it packs in a healthy dose of omega-3s, too — so if you want to offer a selection of seafood at your new cookout, this grilling plank is the perfect addition to your BBQ setup. These cedar planks provide the perfect surface for grilling fish, and we find that they actually add a little extra smoky flavor to the meal. These would be ideal for a delicate fish like tilapia, but you can also grill a burger on a cedar plank for a smoky, robust flavor.

5. Best outdoor grill smoker: Z Grills Wood Pellet Grill Smoker with Digital Controls
If you’re into grilling, you’ve probably read all about the latest craze in the meat-cooking world: smoking. Smoking meats infuses dishes with a rich, robust flavor without adding any calories or fat — almost like a built-in seasoning. This pick is on the higher end in terms of price, but we recommend it for true outdoor cooking enthusiasts who want to get seriously into smoking this summer. This smoker goes way beyond summer cookouts, after all — you can enjoy smoking meat, fish, and vegetables all year long with this investment.

6. Best for kebabs: GRILLART Kebob SKewers for Grilling
We are all about kebabs because they’re a creative way to make vegetables taste incredible. These skewers are incredible because they’re flat, not round, making the food easier to flip and remove. The stainless steel prevents any soggy wooden skewers (which can also break off) and these even have a grill handle for easier cooking.

7. Best marinade and cooking sauce: Noble Made by The New Primal
Every good cookout has a wide variety of sauces, marinades, and dressings, and we especially love this brand — it’s Whole30 approved, Paleo, gluten-free, and has no added sugar, preservatives, or fillers. Whether you’re cooking beef, salmon, vegetable skewers, or BBQ tofu on your grill, these sauces are sure to add flavor, spice, and complexity with delicious onion, garlic, and sea-salt infused flavors. Choose from the Classic Marinade, Citrus Herb Marinade, Soy-Free, or a Spicy Marinade.

8. Best grill gloves: GEEKHOM BBQ Gloves, Heat Resistant Oven Gloves
Grill gloves are something most people don’t realize they need until it’s too late, and hosts end up with dry, chapped hands from the hot grill. Think ahead this year and grab a pair of these heat-resistant gloves, made from BPA-free silicone. They can withstand very high heat levels, all while providing maximum grilling comfort and protection. The grip is non-slip, so you can actually pick up food and not worry about it falling out of your hands. We like these gloves more than others because they’re durable but still pretty sleek and wearable, and you cannot beat the color selection! Hot pink, anyone?
