79 Sizzling Summer BBQ Tools

From Burger Patty Presses to Glowing Grill Accessories

— July 23, 2014 — Lifestyle
Whether you're a meat eater or not, there's always something that you can cook up on the barbecue, provided you've got the right summer BBQ tools to get the job done. For most, this means having a kitchen stocked full of barbecue essentials like spatulas, thermometers, oven mitts, basting brushes and flame-starters.

Although you could go for designs that provide pure function, in the spirit of summer and fun, there are also a ton of novel barbecue tool designs for things like bacon-shaped spatulas and oven mitts that are shaped like a big approving Facebook thumbs up. With the aid of dedicated barbecuing devices like these, the process of whipping up tons of grilled summer treats is far more entertaining and often times, even more efficient.
