Verde River Gecko Safety Grip Gloves
You can’t flip the burger, pull the pork or handle the turkeys with bare hands, so we recommend the Gecko Grip Gloves that are perfect for grilling, baking, smoking and cooking. These silicone heat resistantgloves protect your hand from temperatures even above 425 degrees. The waterproof Gecko Grip Gloves allow you to easily handle grilled meats with dexterity and freedom, but with the added protection from heat.
BBQ Grill Cleaning Brush
A grill cleaning tool is the must have accessory for ensuring that delicate foods like fish and vegetables do not stick. Most of the models you’ll come across have stiff brass bristles that bend out of shape or break off, making the cleaning process ineffective. We recommend Qually United 3 in 1 BBQ grill brush. It has solid bristles made from stainless steel woven wire that makes the cleaning process effortless. The handle is quite long and easily reaches all parts of the grill. It’s not grill specific and will work well with propane, charcoal or electric infrared cookers.
