As with any type of cooking, grilling’s most enjoyable when it’s done with quality tools and ingredients. You wouldn’t cut with a dull knife or settle for stale bread, and the same attention should apply outside, too. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up five essentials — including steakhouse-quality beef — to make sure your next summer cookout isn’t lost to flare-ups.

The best grill in the world can’t mask a poor ingredient. So if it’s steakhouse-quality meat you’re after, turn to Allen Brothers, purveyors of what many consider to be the best beef in the country. Online, customers can choose anything from classic steak cuts, such as prime aged porterhouse and USDA Prime tomahawk ribeye, to bison burgers, Berkshire pork and different types of fish, all cut by hand and shipped right to your door.
