With the summer high-kicking into full swing, it's about time I highlight some of my must have grilling accessories. My dad is a huge fan of grilling - as am I - and during the summer we use the bbq every night. With the proper tools you can make everything from pizza to quesadillas - including steaks and fish - on the grill. Start with the basics: a good set of tongs, a long headed spatula, and a strong wire grill brush. Before you begin your 4th of July festivities, double check to make sure you have enough propane in your gas grill or enough charcoal briquettes for your regular bbq. Bamboo skewers, a grill rack for vegetables and flaky fishes, and a deluxe basting brush are useful, but not essential accessories. With the help of these practical tools, you'll find that grilling is a cinch. I can't live without these must haves, but how about you? What are your must have grilling accessories?
