Best Grilling Gear For Summer 2018

First step spice rub, next step grill master

You went through the trouble to source a great cut of meat and farm-fresh vegetables, but those ingredients aren't going to cook themselves. From our favorite grills to conversation-starting cooking tools, these are the ultimate hamburger helpers to help get you through the summer.

The Grills

Heston Blumenthal Everdure

The chef behind London's three-Michelin-starred Fat Duck teamed up with kitchenware brand Everdure to create a collection of gas and charcoal grills aptly named Everdure by Heston Blumenthal. The quintet of grills ranges from the highly small and portable Cube to the crowd-feeding Hub, and they come in a variety of colors.

Disposable CasusGrill

On the other side of the grill spectrum: This portable Danish-designed number, which is $13, completely biodegradable and can go anywhere that you're willing to carry 2.2 pounds worth of bamboo and cardboard. It heats up in a mere five minutes, perfect for the hangry people among us.

Wolf & Grizzly M1 Grill Kit

This one may not be disposable, but it's still highly portable—you might even grab it instead of your umbrella by accident. "Strong enough for the woods and sophisticated enough for the city" is the ethos of this Canadian brand, so you don't need to be a camping wizard in order to master its use.

The Accessories

Himalayan Salt Plate

Accessorize your grill to match your trendy Himalayan salt lamp. It gives flavor to whatever you put on it, and you don't have to worry about small pieces falling through the grill grates. Plus, it works in the oven, so consider it a year-round gift to yourself.

Barbecue Grill Light

As much as we hate to admit this: It's August. And the days are only getting shorter (sorry!). But there's still plenty of grilling to do even as darkness falls earlier, so keep the barbecue going with a high-powered LED lamp that puts the spotlight where it belongs.

The Goods

Williams Family Kitchen NONO Sauce

Pharrell has many talents, the latest of which includes providing the masses with his secret family recipe. The versatile, sweet-tangy sauce works as a meat marinade, a seafood glaze, a place to dip fries and more.

Hickory Rub

Make whatever you cook taste like it spent hours in a hickory wood-equipped smoker—even if it's just a hot dog that you took out of the package five minutes ago.
