Other Grilling Accessories
Here are a few more items that can improve your grilling experience! These items really come in handy whenever you grill.
14. Grill Brush
You know how dirty your grill or campground grills can get. Clean them up by using the bristle-free grill brush.
Bristles can allow small metal pieces to get into your food when BBQing. If you have an older grill brush, it may be time to update it.
When cooking outdoors, you want to ensure your food is cooked through and safe to it. The best way to ensure it is by using a food probe.
This instant read digital thermometer is one of the most popular on the market. It's reliable, and it's fast, so you don't let all the heat escape from your grill when checking the temp.
A cast iron grill press releases excessive fat and oils from meat while adding those appetizing grill marks. It's a simple tool for healthier eating.
Plus, it's great for making grilled sandwiches while camping. Who doesn't love a panini on the go?

10 Best Campfire Accessories
Now that you're grill-ready, it's time to check out the best campfire accessories!
This list focuses on smaller campfire accessories directly related to the fire itself. We have other articles on bigger RV camping accessories, including the best portable camping fire pits and best camping chairs.
But if you already have your camp setup, here are accessories to take your campfire evening to the next level.
This 2-piece fire pit poker is one of the more versatile options on the market. For one, it breaks down into 2 pieces, so it’s easier to store. And two, it’s also a blow poke.
What’s a blow poke? It’s a hollow poker that you can safely use to breathe oxygen into the fire. It makes it easier to start a fire and keep it going.
I know many of us just use a big stick as a poker whenever we’re camping, but this is a safer option. It gives us more control over lighting and maintaining the fire.
The blow poke helps you start a fire, but you don’t have to rely on your lungs if you have this fire starter pack. These small yet mighty cubes get your flame going safely, easily, and quickly.
These water-resistant cubes are a blend of wood and wax. So, you don’t get any dangerous flare-ups or unwanted flavors in your food as you do with fluid fire starters.
You don’t need any kindling with these starters since they burn up to 10 minutes on their own.
If you love paninis, this is one of the best campfire accessories for you. It’s great for making grilled sandwiches, but it works for all kinds of food.
You can use it to make campfire sandwiches, mini pizzas, homemade hot pockets, or even cinnamon rolls. (Try these 3 Delicious Campfire Sandwich Recipes!!)
It’s really easy to clean by just wiping it and rinsing it with warm water.
