What experts liked
The barbecue lighting accessory from Cave Tools is another handle mount option, though this one is upgraded to work for both round and square bars. This is a nice upgrade, as it also allows you to use on tabletops of the appropriate thickness.Accompanied by 25 professional barbecue recipes, grilling tutorial videos, and a free downloadable meat smoking journal, you get everything you need to get out there and make us dinner.The head provides full 360º rotation, which is twice most options in the clamp-mount category, and the unit is water & heat resistant so you can grill even if there’s light rain.We especially liked the lifetime satisfaction guarantee, as this provides a level of security in your purchase that has become rare in modern commerce.

An Overview On Grill Lights

Few things taste as good as food cooked on an outdoor grill, but cooking outdoors isn’t always possible. When the weather isn’t ideal, you may want to enjoy a good meal cooked outside, but rain, snow, sleet or hail kicks those plans to the curb. Unless your grill is in a well-lit area, you may also find that you’re limited to daylight hours for your culinary efforts.

One solution to that is a grill light. Attaching to either the body or handle of your grill, a light can broaden your grilling window, letting you cook well into the late evening hours. If you’re having a backyard party, this is especially beneficial because you can keep cooking while your guests enjoy the food.

Grills are built to stay outside, weathering storms and daily exposure to the sun’s rays. If you plan to set up your grill light and leave it, you’ll need to keep this in mind and search specifically for one designed to handle the elements. That said, there’s no reason you can’t remove your grill light and store it somewhere inside until you need it. If you rarely grill at night, this will let you choose from a far wider range of options.

DWYM Fun Fact

If you’ve ever planned to grill, only to find a rainstorm puts a damper on your plans, take note. You can actually grill in the rain, as long as you have an umbrella and a little extra time. You’ll find that having someone to hold the umbrella for you will free you up to focus on cooking. Keep in mind that rain can cool down the grill a little, so food may take longer than usual to cook. Some items can be baked in the oven a little while, then finished on the grill. That will not only help offset the extra cook time, but it also will reduce the amount of time you’ll have to spend outdoors.

The Grill Light Buying Guide

  • The first thing to consider in a grill light is how it attaches. Look at your grill and decide if a light clamped to the handle suffices, or if you’d be better off looking for one that clamps to the lid.
  • Magnetic grill lights are convenient, but not all grills are built using magnet-friendly materials. Make sure your grill is metal before you invest in a light that attaches via a magnet.
  • The light itself is also an important feature. LED lights will last longer and provide a brighter, more energy-efficient light, which will help you save on batteries.
  • Some lights have multiple bulbs built in, giving you a wider ray of light as you work.
  • If a light comes with a mount, check to ensure it will work with the surface you intend to attach it to.
  • It’s important that you be able to maneuver the light once it’s attached. Some are built with a swivel, while others are designed with a gooseneck stem that you can manipulate.
  • Pay attention to the batteries required to operate your light. While many ship with batteries included, you’ll want to make sure you have a spare set for that day when you prepare to grill at night, only to find your batteries are dead.
