Put your mark on that perfect piece of meat — no that's not what we mean — with the DCI BBQ Branding Iron ($18). This metal and wood branding iron is the perfect addition to your collection of grilling tools. It includes the entire alphabet (plus extras and spacers), so you can write just about any message you think of. Letters easily slide onto the rack, with no need for additional tools. Stake a claim to that porterhouse, or amuse your friends with your favorite Ron Swanson-ism ("You had me at meat tornado").
Most of the best stuff at Ikea is simple, cleanly-designed, and affordable. This IKEA Lillon Grill ($100) is no exception. Featuring a glossy black enamel paint job that's made friendlier by the curves of the handles, grill body, and legs, the Lillon also offers versatility, in that it can be used as a standing grill with the included legs, or as a tabletop affair by swapping them out for the polypropylene feet. With a cooking area of just over 250 square inches, it's not going to be cooking up any huge meals, but for a single, couple, or small family, it should do just fine, while providing a splash of style to your outdoor living area.

Ever wish your grilling tools could be just as rugged and reliable as your real tools? They can be with the Klein BBQ Tool Set. Crafted from rust-resistant stainless steel, the set includes both a 17" spatula and a long fork, both of which feature the same cushion-grip handles as the company's normal tools. In addition, both tools feature a Tip-Ident on the end of the handle that helps make them easy to identify in a crowded drawer. Matching bottle opener sold separately.
