Tips from the pros on the indispensable backyard gadgets
The right grilling tools can improve your grilling experience.
Father's Day is coming soon, and there's no better time than now to prepare for the big day. Forget about giving Dad another banal tie rack, or a new wallet, or even a nice bottle of cologne — get him what he really wants. No, not a new sports car, although if you can swing that, that probably wouldn't hurt. How about some grilling tools? Father's Day isn't exactly like Mother's Day — after all, it's OK to make the guest of honor do all the work.
Sure, there are the usual suspects — a spritzer of water to put out those flare-ups in a hurry, a grate cleaner because a dirty grill means stuck food, a man's apron just because, and of course, a fire extinguisher just in case things get really out of hand. But what about the toys?

We gathered together some tips from Joel Gamoran, resident chef of Sur La Table’s Manhattan Cooking Program. Gamoran cooked in various West Coast kitchens in the early years of his career and went on to Florence, Italy, to study at the Culinary Institute of Florence. Later, he traveled back to the West Coast to study at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, Calif., where upon graduating, he worked in numerous seasonally driven California and Seattle-based restaurants. Gamoran found his true calling when he started teaching, however, and has never looked back. Here's what he had to say.

7 Essential Tools For Backyard Grilling Success
Ma always used to say that a 'workman is only as good as his tools'. To a degree she was right. If a workman (or woman) does not have the right tools for the job then the job will probably not get done properly. The same goes for grilling. So here are the seven essential tools that every backyard griller should have.
Thermometer - get yourself a reliable thermometer. This will enable you to check the internal temperature of the cooking food. This will help you to avoid overcooking and undercooking. If you buy a cheap thermometer, you could end up with one that gives the wrong reading so choose carefully and wisely.
Spatula - there are plenty of these around but as with the thermometer, it is worthwhile getting a good non-stick spatula. Make sure also that it is large enough to get under a big fillet of fish, which will avoid any disasters of the fillet falling apart as you flip it. Having one with a bent handle is also good as it makes it less awkward to use.
Wire brush - this is a case where the price doesn't really matter. The brush is just for cleaning off the grill afterwards. The important thing is that you have one as dried on foods that are re-heated again and again will impart off-flavors to anything you grill.
Brushes - You should get a couple of these at least, ordinary pastry brushes will be fine and can really save time. Keep one for oiling grilling surfaces and maybe 2 or 3 others for basting. Replace them when the flavors of the basting mixture do not wash out fully. You can use a spoon for basting but brushing gives a more even and thorough coverage.
Skewers - There are plenty of these to choose from. Skewers with handles are more convenient but whatever type you buy, get them with a flat blade design. The simple sharpened wire design are a complete pain, when you try to turn the food, this type just rotate within the food, it then needs turning individually which is time consuming.
Mitts - heatproof mitts are a real boon, you can pick up hot stuff without worry. Getting a fireproof pair is always a good idea as there is always the possibility of the mitts coming into contact with a naked flame whilst grilling.
Tongs - if you buy only one specialist grilling tool, make it a pair of tongs. Many inexperienced grillers will just use a fork. Each time you flip your meat, a fork pokes holes in it and allows the juices to flow out. This makes the meat dry and reduces its flavor. You can use a spatula but that is more awkward and makes it a tad more difficult for a visual examination of the meat when checking if it is cooked. A good quality pair of tongs are best, cheap ones will distort, making food handling more difficult.
So, get the right tools for the job and you will get better results from your backyard grill.

26 DIY Father's Day Gifts That Are Easy Enough for Toddlers and Kids to Make
All dads &mdash even the one who claims to be Mr. Tough Guy &mdash love a Father's Day gift that tugs at his heartstrings. Since it can be tough to find a store-bought option that has just the right amount of practicality, personalization and heart, try your hand at making one of these DIY Father's Day gifts this year. These homemade gift ideas vary in skill level, but most of them are easy enough for toddlers and kids to make (with mom's supervision, of course).
Many of these DIYs highlight everything your #1 guy loves most: manning the grill, cracking open a cold one with his buddies and going on adventures with his family. While we made sure to find ideas that he can actually use in his day-to-day life (say, a new spatula and apron for grilling), there's also so much room for you and your kids to get personal. Add heart to any of these handmade gifts by writing a heartfelt message, incorporating your family's best photos or attaching a homemade Father's Day card. Even if the final product doesn't look exactly like the photo shown here (ah, expectations vs. reality), there's no doubt that he'll cherish this present for years to come.
Give kids a range of fabric markers and paints to choose from, and then watch as they turn a plain white apron into something special for your family's grill master.
You'll also rely on your kid's help for this DIY: Ask them to draw a picture of their dad on a piece of craft foam, which you'll later wrap around a beer can like a koozie.
Print one of these punny messages on card stock and then attach them to his favorite after-work drink of choice (read: beer).
For a sweet (and edible) take on a fishing tackle box, fill a plastic organizer with a colorful array of Swedish Fish.
He takes so much pride in being the chosen one to man the grill, so it's only fitting that he has a custom burger, hot dog and veggie flipper. Let the kids paint a special message &mdash #1 Dad, Best Dad Ever, you name it &mdash on its wooden handle.
Make his movie snack (or anytime snack, really) fit for the holiday by affixing a custom label from dad's own "little monsters." And if you can't make it to the grocery store to buy trail mix, make your own with an assortment of nuts, dried fruit and chocolate.
The M&Ms will give him an instant sweet fix, but the heartfelt message written inside the card will last a lifetime.
Make a basic six-pack fit for the occasion by dressing each bottle with a paper flower. Since you know he really just wants a case of his favorite beer for Father's Day.
If it was a milestone year in your family (new baby! graduation!), this wooden frame will serve as a highlight reel for dad to enjoy for years to come.
As a nod to dad, turn chocolate bars into superheroes with colored construction paper and markers.
Here's a personalized way to show of his Father's Day gift: a brand-new BBQ set.
If they're willing to give up their LEGOs (a.k.a. their pride and joy), then get your kids involved by having them write down things they'd like to do with dad.
Remind him of his outdoorsman spirit with a leather drink sleeve. It's way better than a store-bought "World's Best Dad" mug, don't ya think?
For a masculine touch, make homemade candles in paint cans. He'll appreciate their mosquito-deterring capabilities even more the next time he camps or grills.
Treat his five o'clock shadow to a nourishing blend of grapeseed oil, olive oil and an essential oil of your choice (we vote sandalwood).
Restock the grill master's cookout arsenal with new tools, top-notch condiments and his very own apron.
Dad will finally use a coaster if it looks as cool as these rustic ones, personalized with his last initial.
After years of giving him a tie for Father's Day, surprise him with a crafty way to keep them organized.
If he's got a scratched record or two, give it new life by melting it into a bowl and filling it with small trinkets and tchotchkes.
Give his desk a small makeover with this leather mouse pad. Something to note: You'll need a rotary cutter for this project, so be careful, will ya?
Woodworking experience is helpful if you plan on making this coffee contraption, but hey, for the promise of caffeine on the other side, it's a good time to learn.
Let him know he's your bulwark in the storm with this print-and-trace project.
Set him up to grill in style with a custom apron that'll keep his trusty pair of khakis totally clean.
Start looking for a picture of your pops, so you can add a snazzy bow tie to create this gift-meets-card hybrid.
In muted, monochrome shades, these block letter printables double as a card, making his Father's Day gift even more special.
A tie may be a cliché Father's Day gift, but a tie that you made yourself? That's something that can't be beat.

You need to get that fire hot, fast. This one from Weber has plenty of capacity for when you need to grill a feast, but want to skip the lighter fluid.

A perfect set of tongs isn&rsquot just for grilling&mdashit&rsquos an extra set of hands in the kitchen. These heavyweight ones from Winco have a durable spring-loaded design made of sanitary stainless steel. They might be the best cooking tool seven bucks can buy.

The grillmaster&rsquos apron is both a protective item and a trademark. Yes, your old one with a six-pack is funny. But when the grilling gets serious, you&rsquoll want Filson&rsquos, made with their sturdy tin cloth, five pockets, and an adjustable webbing neck strap.

Lodge is the king of affordable, dependable cast-iron, and this reversible griddle might be their pinnacle. It&rsquos just a slab of metal, designed to be set right on the grill (or right on the fire, as the grill itself) and used for anything that could use some searing.
&ldquoBut we have phones in our pockets,&rdquo you say. &ldquoWho would need such a thing?&rdquo Obsessives, that&rsquos who.

Is there any more classic grilling eat than the burger? And is there anything worse than uneven burger meat? You spend too much money on your ground beef and too much time on your seasoning. So ensure BBQ uniformity when you cook. The Weston press compacts evenly and then pops back for the perfect patty. No more crumbly, unevenly cooked burgers. Bring on the next batch.
Adding flavor to some items but not all without using a plank is possible with these convenient papers. They come equipped with natural string too to make it easier to wrap any food in delicious cedar notes. No one will ever complain that anything you grill in these tastes bland.

VII. Tips for Charcoal, Fire Starters, Gloves, and more…
An Electric Charcoal Lighter
C’mon man, it’s just easier! Who wants to waste time and money trying to light your Kamado Joe? Not me, that’s why I consider an electric charcoal lighter to be a must-have kamado grill accessory. You have LOTS of other things to worry about – getting the fire started with your lump should not be one of them!
Quality Lump Charcoal
Personally I use the KJ-Char. Now I know there are a lot of charcoal options out there when it comes to kamado grilling and there’s even a list of quality options on the Naked Whiz Database, but for my money, I believe in the Kamado Joe Lump Charcoal brand – specifically the Big Block XL version. Why? Because not only is the bag filled with really big lumps of charcoal, but even more importantly, the type of wood used is a combination of various hardwoods so you get a great flavor but not an overpowering flavor. (If you’ve ever used lump charcoal that is primarily made with hickory then you know what I mean). The KJ-Char is great for kamado grill cooking because you can use it for all types of food – from pizza, to chicken, to beefs, to pork, and fish. It works for all of it and it compliments it all well. Using KJ-Char as your base also gives you the flexibility to then add your own wood chips to add additional specific flavors (cherry, pecan, apple, etc) depending on what you’re cooking.
Here are some options to consider…
