The Right Tools for Your Memorial Day Weekend Grill Master
Go to Top

A great Memorial Day BBQ needs a grill master, and a great grill master needs great tools. Modern grill tech makes the process of feeding the party quicker and more fun. Here are some of the best tools to consider before the doorbells start ringing and the family starts showing up!

iGrill Mini

You may or may not know this, but every time you open the grill, you reduce the quality of your heat. One of the major advantages to the iGrill is its prominent temperature monitor that keeps your favorite DIY Memorial Day chef from opening the lid every 5 minutes to check on the meat. Keep the full integrity of your smoking and grilling process with this attractive, convenient and very affordable mini grill.

Vino2Go Cups

If you have family that loves to overindulge in the libations before dinner, then you know how annoying cleaning up a broken glass can be. It can also be dangerous to continue to let your drunk uncle hold glasses around the kids! Solve the problem of tipsy family members with the Vino2Go brand of adult sippy cups. You keep your good glassware looking great, and you also keep bugs away from your wine!

Japanese Denim Apron

Memorial Day is fully an American holiday, but there is nothing wrong with bringing a little flavor instead of the same old "Kiss the Cook" apron every year. This apron has a bit more style to it - you may actually find yourself trying to keep the grease away from it! This special kind of apron also gives you more room to maneuver and store some of the other tools that you will find on this list.


You know that your Memorial Day wouldn't be complete without another drinking implement to deal with your drunk relatives. The Bevometer gives everyone a heads up as to who is drinking how much. Assuming that everyone can actually hold their liquor, the counter on the front of the Bevometer also lets people know who needs to catch up!

Brookstone Mounted Light Grill

There is no reason to stop the party just because the lights go out. As a matter of fact, isn't this when things get good?

This light is mounted on any grill and gives you enough power to reference the relevant items on your grill even in otherwise total darkness.

Lavatools Javelin Thermometer

This is no Olympic javalin. Let's talk chicken! If your party wants its chicken well done (and who doesn't?), the Lavatools Javelin gives you an easy way to check on the done-ness of your meat. This food thermometer can fit neatly into your pocket until it is ready to be used, and the javelin recedes to keep you from sticking anything that you don't want to stick by accident.
