1. THE PRECISION GRIP 

Oxo Good Grips Grilling Tongs

Flip your meats and veggies from a safe distance with these extra-long stainless steel tongs. Nonslip handles and scalloped heads help maintain a solid grip – no more food falling between the grates. They are rust-resistant and dishwasher safe, and they lock for storage. $15, oxo.com

2. ROCK THE PLANK 

Williams Sonoma Cedar Plank

There’s no other grilling accessory that will impress your guests as much as a cedar plank – it adds a lovely woody, smoky flavor to your fish. When choosing cedar planks, you’ll want to ensure they are harvested sustainably, such as this model made from untreated western red cedar. Don't forget to soak them in water overnight before use. $14 for set of 4, williams-sonoma.com

3. ALL YOUR VEG IN ONE BASKET 

Broil King Grill Wok

If veg is on your menu, a grilling basket, also known as a grilling wok, is a must. Simply chop up your veg, toss with oil and seasonings and place them in the basket to grill. This heavy-duty, stainless steel model holds a family-sized portion of produce without taking up too much real estate on your grill. $20, broilkingbbq.com

4. FOOLPROOF THERMOMETER 

Maverick DF-10 Digital Fork

Use this instant-read thermometer in one of two ways: Set it to your desired temperature, or set it to a specific type of protein and it will default to the USDA-approved temperatures. Remember to always test in the thickest part of the meat since that will take the longest to cook. $30, maverickthermometers.com
