In addition to a good charcoal grill, you may want to purchase a charcoal chimney (such as the BBQ Dragon Chimney of Insanity or the GrillPro Charcoal Chimney Starter). This convenient tool helps you heat coals quickly and easily without using chemical lighter fluid. You may also consider an all-natural fire starter such as Fatwood by EcoStix, which contains pine resin to quickly and easily light both charcoal and wood.
You’ll also need some good grilling tools such as high-quality tongs, grilling gloves, and a grill brush to keep your grill in tip-top shape. We like this convenient 14-piece deluxe grill set from Cuisinart. And for consistently cooked meat, we also suggest purchasing a meat thermometer.
