10 Must-Have BBQ Accessories Worth Your Money

Grilling is an essential part of summer in Ontario. Whether you’re BBQing for dinner, hosting BBQ Cook Offs with friends, or cooking around a fire, you need a few crucial accessories to make grilling out even more successful. We have given each of our favourite BBQ accessories a 🔥 rating, so read on to learn about the top BBQ accessories that will elevate every at-home chef’s BBQ tool kit.

MEATER+  🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Meat thermometers are any chef's best friend. They allow you to get the exact temperature of the meat you are cooking, to ensure it’s not only safe to eat but also to indicate that it’s cooked to perfection. The MEATER+ is the Classic Fireplace go-to wireless smart thermometer that connects to an App. This handy device allows you to monitor your food remotely from a 165ft range, giving you the freedom and information to be the best chef at the cookout!

Eno Long Spatula 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Long spatulas are a crucial BBQ accessory to have in your arsenal, especially if you cook large pieces of meat or large quantities of vegetables. Our favourite is the Eno Long Spatula, which boasts a non-slip handle, a specially engineered stainless steel for maximum flexibility, and is balanced so it doesn’t tip over when set down! It’s also dishwasher compatible, making clean-up a breeze!

Napoleon Rotisserie Basket 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Did you know you can make wings, french fries, veggies, and more on the grill? The Napoleon Rotisserie Basket allows you to get more from your BBQ. This Rotisserie Basket fits with most rotisserie rod styles, and makes it easy to cook every course on the BBQ. Made from an easy-to-clean stainless steel, this is the perfect accessory for those who want to elevate their BBQing this summer. 

Napoleon Premium Pizza Stone 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Pizza is always a good idea, especially when you have the perfect pizza accessories. The Napoleon Premium Pizza Stone’s porous nature makes anything cooked on it, such as pizza crust or bread, have a light and crispy texture. Easy to use on BBQs or in your oven, this innovative stone heats evenly, giving you restaurant quality results every time. For even more advice on the perfect pizza at home, read our article here.

Eno Cutting Set 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

If you’re in a family of carnivores, this Eno Cutting Set is the perfect addition to your knife drawer. Designed for expert slicing, this knife and fork set was designed to cut meat, poultry, and fish, features a non-slip ergonomic handle, and is dishwasher compatible! You’ll find yourself reaching for this cutting set over any other knife and fork every time you start the grill.

Big Green Egg EGGspander Kit 🔥🔥🔥🔥

If you invested in a Large or XLarge Big Green Egg for all of your summer BBQ needs, the EGGspander System is an addition that will take your BGE to the next level. This set allows you to extend the cooking set up options at your disposal, and includes multi-tier cooking racks, stainless steel half grids, and a “Cowboy Style” lower rack. We love how this EGGspander System revolutionizes an already classic product, giving you more versatility in your BBQing.

Big Green Egg Cast Iron Press 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Calling all burger aficionados. The Big Green Egg Cast Iron Grill Press is our go-to accessory to elevate all your homemade burgers this summer. Not only does it create the perfect smash burger, but also will help you get flawless sear marks on all of your BBQ steaks, press grilled paninis, and will even prevent curling when cooking bacon. This handy enameled cast iron tool can do it all, and is dishwasher safe.  

Traeger Stainless Steel Grill Basket 🔥🔥🔥🔥

The Traeger Stainless Steel Grill Basket is the ultimate accessory to prevent precious food from falling through the grates of your grill. We love that it features small holes that allow heat and smoke to circulate, while protecting your chopped veggies and other small items from getting lost in the grill. Its raised edges even prevent food from rolling off, making this the true savior of the summer. 

Napoleon Stainless Steel Auto Lock Tongs 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Tongs are every BBQ Chef's best friend, and Napoleon’s Stainless Steel Tongs are tough to beat. These 16” tongs are the perfect length to pair with any grill without being too light or too heavy, and have a rubberized grip that keeps your hands out of the heat. The scalloped edges allow you to grip food without piercing it, and their sensitive spring allows you to deftly pick up the smallest morsels or largest pieces of meat.  

Napoleon Stainless Steel Brush 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

At the end of a fantastic day of BBQing this summer, it’s time to clean the grill and get it ready for the next cookout. Our top pick is the Napoleon PRO Series Stainless Steel Grill Brush. This brush has an ergonomic handle to make cleaning your grill more comfortable, and is designed to not damage your grills when scraping hot food off of them. Our top cleaning tip: scrape your grill while it is still hot and also before each BBQ session. The brush’s durable grill heads will last you through many summer cookouts, and can be replaced when they wear out, without the need to replace the entire brush.
