15 BBQ Grilling Gear Essentials

It is summer time, and you know what that means...Time to bring out the grill, throw some beers on ice, and fire up the briquets – it's BBQ time!

As every man knows (or at least as every man should know), your run-of-the-mill outdoor cooking could be accomplished with a half-empty empty beer can and a pile of red hot logs. But a man who's serious about his craft pulls together the proper equipment and takes the job to the next level.

So if you want to get fancy with your non-fancy cooking and lay claim to the title of Master Griller in your neighborhood, we've compiled a list of barbecue tools and grilling gadgets for your next backyard culinary adventure. It's enough to get any red-blooded American male's mouth watering.

Note: To complete the "recipe" for the perfect BBQ, don’t forget to toss in the obvious essentials: some bloody meat and a stack of cold brewskis. We can only do so much for you here...
