Best New Grills and Accessories to Upgrade Your BBQ This Summer

Every year there’s a crop of new grills and tools to up the ante on your BBQ game. We see advancements in pellet burning, automatic temperature control, and wireless monitoring that make cooking your favorite meals easier, tastier, and more enjoyable.

And the accessories that go along with backyard barbecuing aren’t just getting smarter, they’re also continuously being refined and redesigned. Take a look at what we think are the best barbecue grills and tools on the market for spring 2022.

1. Char-Broil Cruise Gas Grill

You can’t deny the convenience of grilling with gas, and Char-Broil’s Cruise might be the most convenient cooker of all. It’s the first gas grill to let you set and hold heat like an oven to maintain specific temps beyond the standard “low, medium, high.” And a max-heat mode zooms to 700 degrees for the perfect seared steak. But our favorite feature? The auto clean mode that cleans and shuts off the grill at the end of each grilling session. Convenient, right?

2. Camp Chef Apex Pellet Grill

Pellet grills’ smoky versatility has won over many a grill master, but most won’t let you get a true flame-broiled fix. Enter the Camp Chef Apex. This unique hybrid combines the perfection of pellets with the blaze of gas, all in the same main chamber (easily switchable with a button). Add a gasketed lid, double-wall construction and internal lighting, and you’ll never go back to a one-dimensional grill.

No more cutting or poking the meat to see if it’s done.

Choose your wood and finish—either walnut or ebonized white oak—either way, the timber is FSC-certified and sustainably grown and harvested in the U.S.

9. FlipFork

Most guys would think that a spatula is a spatula—until you wield the FlipFork, which is more of a MacGyver-esque multitool than a ho-hum burger flipper. A sharp knife’s edge slices, a blunt edge tenderizes and a protruding prong helps manage all the tricky forking, poking, and flipping required when the flames start jumping. There’s even a bottle opener, too, for grill-side brewskis.
