It’s summer’s last hurrah, and you want to go out with a bang. The Labor Day party is planned, but do you have the right grilling gadgets to make this your best bash ever? There are a slew of new ’cue tools available that will make your friends and neighbors très jealous. Order them up, then get grilling:
Weber Grill Out Handle Light (above)
Sadly, it’s getting dark earlier and earlier these days. But with this handy LED light, you won’t have to give up the grill when the sun goes down. It turns on and off as you open and close the grill, so you don’t have to touch it with dirty hands.
Cave Tools Smoker Box
Take your BBQ from good to great with a little smokey flavor. Just put wood chips in the heavy aluminum box from Cave Tools and place it on top of the burners on a gas grill or directly on top of your charcoal.
The steel blades of this gadget cut slots into your hot dog, which expand as it cooks, allowing smoke and grill flavor to penetrate deeper into the dog. The slots on your cooked dog not only look really cool, they also help hold condiments in place.
i Genietti Angurello Watermelon Slicer
If cutting up a watermelon leaves you with more mess than melon, this slicer is for you. It’s like a knife and tongs combined into one tool that cuts pieces and pulls them out in one motion, leaving all of the watermelon juice in the rind. Genius.
Why spend time cleaning all the gunk off your grill when you can have a robot do it for you instead? The Grillbot is like a little Roomba for your grill, darting along your grates thanks to a CPU chip and sensors. It has three replaceable wire brushes that can be removed for easy cleaning in your dishwasher.
