Forget filling your deck or patio with various outdoor cooking tools, and instead just order up a Hephaestus Patio Pro. Made in the USA from 304 stainless steel, this multi-function wonder features a top chamber that you can use for barbequing and smoking, a middle chamber that functions as a wood-fired pizza oven — with cooking times in the minutes thanks to support for temperatures over 700 degrees — and a bottom chamber that holds the height-adjustable firebox, and which converts into a fire pit. Other than chairs, a table, and maybe a cooler, it's the only thing your backyard needs.
When normal lighters, matches, and fire-starter sticks won't quite get the job done, you need something a little more powerful — something like the Bison Airlighter. Capable of emitting a four-inch jet-powered flame, this lighter ignites charcoal and wood quickly, then blowing air rapidly over the fire to help it grow. Capable of igniting coals and wood without lighter fluid in just seconds, and producing a full-fledged fire in mere minutes, this lighter can have you ready to cook in only six minutes. Powered by batteries and butane, this lighter also features a USB charger port, a flashlight, a child-safety lock, and even a bottle opener.
