3. Meat Thermometer: Some pros can tell with a simple touch, but most of us still need a thermometer. Having it on hand means you're ready to check your meat and aren't darting back into the kitchen.
4. One Extra Plate Or Tray: I always forget to bring out an extra plate, and inevitably I always need one. If your first plate is covered in marinade or raw meat juice, it isn't the best place for freshly grilled food. Bring out an extra plate and you won't have any problems!
5. A Flash Light: Most modern grills come with a built-in light, but a flashlight is quicker and a better multi-tasker when night starts to creep in. Avoid burning or undercooking your meat. Just click it on to check and then turn it off again!
