You’ve been there: the sun has set yet you aren’t quite done grilling the evening’s dinner. Unfortunately, unless your backyard is well lit, you are likely staring into the dark trying to determine whether or not the food is properly cooked.
Fortunately there are several portable grill lights out there that not only work well but also won’t break the bank. One such light is the weather resistant LED Concepts’ BBQ Grill Light featuring super bright LED lights, a flexible gooseneck on a heavy duty aluminum body, a touch sensor button, a screw clamp, and a magnetic base. All of that for approximately $25! The 22-inch long adjustable gooseneck allows you enough reach to light up grills with a large cooking surface such as multi-burner gas grills and can be adjusted 360 degrees.

– THIS IS NOT AN AD –
Equally, the ability to choose between attaching it to the grill with the magnetic base or with the clamp is a must if your grill is stainless steel, as the magnets will not stick to steel. Powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included), the BBQ lamp’s 12 energy efficient LED lights provide even lighting and last longer than traditional bulbs. The one downside, however, is that the LED bulbs are not replaceable, so you will need to replace the entire unit. That said, I have had one for several years and all of the LED lights are still fully functional.
