It’s grilling season! Have you heard of wood pellet grills? We used to have a small one at our office for Cookout Fridays…which was great! It really gave a wonderful smoky flavor to our food. Like any grill, the cost ranges from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. The one pictured to the left is from Costco (courtesy of the Costco Couple).
Even if you don’t have a wood pellet grill – you might have a grill in general. We have compiled a list of 10 really nifty grill accessories. Some really useful, and some a little over the top.
