Having the right grilling tools and utensils is a must to help you grill a perfect backyard meal. To start with, a dedicated long-handled grilling spatula is a must, because many kitchen spatulas are not designed to stand up to the high heat of the grill. Their handles also tend to be too short, which puts your hands too close to the heat. To flip chicken breasts and steaks, a pair of long-handled grilling tongs gives you precise control and prevents food from slipping between the grates. And when it's time to clean up after the party, you can run your grill brush over the grates while they're still warm for quick and easy cleanup.
