Next-Level Grilling

Charcoal, gas, pellets or straight-up wood—one of the summer's greatest pleasures is cooking with fire.

Protein, veggies, pizza—almost anything is on the table for cooking on the grill. Before you hit the backyard with that tray of grillables, make sure you have these essential items by your side.

Tongs: The one (and possibly the only) tool you need to grip and flip.

Digital instant-read food thermometer: No need to cut to check for doneness. One poke and you'll know for sure.

Side table: If your grill doesn't come with one, set one up. A place to stage your food and set your essentials is a must.
