Light up the grill at night with this set of two magnetic LED grill lights from KOSIN.
Each BBQ light is powered by three AAA batteries which the manufacturer claims will power each light for 20 consecutive hours. The lights feature 9 high density LEDs that are turned on and off using a touch sensor button, providing bright, glare free beams that can be adjusted 360 degrees thanks to flexible 4.5-inch long goosenecks.
The approximately 4-inch tall heat resistant aluminum alloy body is water resistant, making it perfect for outdoor use year-round. The powerful magnet bases make them easy to attach to most metal surfaces, though be aware that they will not adhere to stainless steel grills which are better suited for a clamp-able lamp like this one.
Since the lights are portable (they actually come in a small carrying case), you can also use them for camping, car repairs, etc. As with many LED grill lights in the $15-30 price range, the LED lights are not replaceable so once they die the entire unit needs to be replaced, though they should last several years depending on the amount of use and how they are treated.
This, coupled with the fact that the short gooseneck limits the range of the lights and that they cannot be used with stainless steel grills earned them a silver medal. Note that while there are numerous similar looking LED light sets available on Amazon, the pair from KOSIN is the only one we physically tested.

Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
