There is no better time of year to fire up the grill than Summer — but sometimes grilling standards (burgers, dogs, brats, metts) get a little tired. Throw chicken into the mix with the Chicken Leg Grill Rack ($20). This 15-inch-long rack holds a dozen chicken legs, and can be placed directly on your grill, cooking the meat to perfection. Stainless steel construction makes it a breeze to clean, and means it will last for grilling seasons to come. So, bring on the barbecue sauce and get grilling.
If you have a hard time reconciling your love for backyard barbecues with your sustainable mindset, then the SolSource Grill ($249) is here to ease your conscience. Not only is it environmentally-friendly, it's also a great grill — it heats up quickly and can cook a large meal in minutes. The average gas grill makes four times the emissions of your home stove, and a charcoal grill more than doubles that. This solar grill makes none, so your next cookout can be entirely guilt-free. Since it doesn't need charcoal or gas to work, you can use it miles away from anything, letting you cook great meals anywhere on the planet.
Whether you sell propane and propane accessories, or just prefer to taste the meat and not the heat, you'll want to grab a Truma Propane Levelcheck ($90). This handy little device uses ultrasound to check the level of the liquid gas left in your cylinder. The LED turns green if it senses liquid, and red if it senses none, so you can tell at a glance when it's time to refill. That means less time spent knocking on and shaking your propane tank, and more time spent on extracurricular activities, like enjoying a nice cold can of Alamo out back with the guys.
