A solid grill that works for your lifestyle and storage needs.
Promising review: “I've had this smoker for 4–5 years. It works great and is very affordable. I totally abuse this unit but it still has another couple years of life. The unit is plenty big for smoking or grilling for the family, but still small enough if you are only grilling for two. It's sturdy enough with just enough shelf space on the front and side to get you by. When this one gets a little older I'll buy another. Best grill I've ever had, and I've had more expensive units.” –Smoker Dave
Get it from Jet for $109.
Fire extinguisher spray for when emergencies do happen. Safety first!
This spray has a 4X greater discharge time than traditional fire extinguishers. Store it near the grill, but not by it. After all, aerosol cans do not perform well near intense heat, like your grill.
Promising review: “This is an excellent product for car and home, light weight and easy to use. Highly recommended, see the demo on you tube, very effective fire extinguisher.” –MoorparkMC

Heat-resistant gloves to make turning kabobs a cinch.
Promising review: “I really love these gloves. I'm a big guy who has freakishly large hands. One warning, do not use these gloves if they get wet, as with most gloves you will feel the heat! Other than that, I love 'em for retrieving meat deep in my smoker, they cover my wrists nicely.” –Bobby1
