What types of accessories do I need for grilling?

The basic tools and accessories you're going to want and need for grilling are tongs, a grilling spatula, BBQ Fork and a basic wire brush for cleaning (because the most important part of maintaining a grill is cleaning it after every use). You'll also want a grill cover to help protect your grill from weather damage. In addition to these tools, you may also want to acquire a basting brush and metal skewers. For cast iron grills, you're going to want to keep the grates well oiled, and you can do so with any vegetable oil and a napkin. Other accessories that can be great for grilling are BBQ gloves, a grill topper wok, and a thin, bladed spatula that is helpful when cooking delicate foods like fish.
