The wait is finally over. Grilling season is here! But, before you slap on those burgers and brats, Rural King has eleven grilling accessories you need if you’re an avid griller. Up your grilling game with these tools that make it possible to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner in your backyard!

Pick Your Grill

Before we get our list started, you’re going to want the right grill.

Pellet Grills

pellet grillI’m partial to the pellet grills because they are so versatile. Last grilling season, our grilling experts made desserts, side dishes, all kinds of meats, and even breakfast foods on their pellet grills.

They work very much like an outdoor oven. Anything that can be made in an oven can be cooked the same way on your pellet grill. Plus, you’ll add that smokey taste to your dishes.

If you’re looking to crank up your grilling game, you’re going to want a pellet grill. Take a look at one of our Pit Boss Rancher Pellet Grills. They are heavy-duty, easy to clean, and can create all kinds of delicious smoked foods. Add a variety of flavors to your food with a bag of Lumber Jack Grilling Pellets.

Charcoal Grills

Charcoal grills can get to a higher temperature than most, so these grills are perfect for cooking meat. You can get a great sear from a charcoal grill that you just can’t get anywhere else.

This Weber Kettle Grill is perfect for backyard BBQs. It has a 363 sq in. cooking space, one-touch cleaning system, and wheels for mobility.  Grab a bag of Kingsford Charcoal and try it out at your next cookout.

Gas Grills

Many folks love gas grills because it is so easy to cook your food evenly. On a charcoal grill, you have to fight the fire to make sure your food isn’t overcooked here and undercooked there. Gas grills don’t have that problem. Just set the heat and flip!

Big Horn also has a line of gas grills! This 4-Burner Gas Grill is great for backyard BBQs. You can grill the chicken, veggies, and burgers at the same time!
