If you’re gearing up for a backyard blowout (or a steady summer of grilling for the family) you’ll want to boost your meals with the right grilling accessories. Maybe you’re in the market for a bright light that sips battery power, or an ultra-durable brush that really gets the grates clean. You may also be looking for replacement parts that have worn down over the years. Here’s a list of the best Weber grilling accessories for the warmer months ahead.
1. Weber 7516 Grill Out Handle Light
If you tend to barbecue when it’s dark out, you’ll want to have this handle light nearby. Despite its compact size, super bright LED bulbs light up the space for nearly 10,000 hours on battery power. This rugged light also holds up well against the elements and is quite heat and moisture resistant thanks to its durable nylon construction. Don’t worry if your hands are full as you head outdoors, as the light will automatically turn on with tilt sensor activation.
Price: $22.44 (20 percent off MSRP)
- Sensor activated
- Weather resistant
- Long battery life
- Confusing installation instructions
- Won’t turn off until lid is fully closed
- Installing/removing batteries is a hassle
2. Weber 7536 Flavorizer Bars
Wish your food had a bit more flavor? These flavorizer bars will do that — and more. Don’t worry about installation, as these bars are quite easy to install. Many customers appreciate how the bars, which are made from porcelain enamel material, work with a variety of Weber grill models. As with most grill components, these will need to be replaced eventually. However, they typically last for several years before showing signs of rust or general wear and tear.
Price: $39.99 (11 percent off MSRP)
- Enhances flavor
- Lasts a long time
- Easy to install
- Rusts faster when exposed to elements

If your grates are really dirty you’ll particularly like the ergonomic handle, which promotes a comfortable and efficient grip.

Wide carrying handles ensure easy portability, even when the basket is full.
