I hosted a barbecue last week, my whole family came round, it was a brilliant day and continued on late into the early hours. I knew the grilling would be going on until after dark so I purchased a grill light from a brand called Grillhawk on Amazon to help me see what I was cooking.
I am so happy I had it to hand, as without it I'm sure there would have been some over cooked meat and even worse some under cooked meat, and I would have never forgiven myself if one of the my loved ones fell ill because of my grilling.
I wasn't convinced how useful it would be until I attached it to the barbecue handle just as the sun was going down. But to my surprise it really helped, the fact it is clamp on, battery operated and heat resistant up to 415 F is important as I have used ad-hoc lighting solutions before and all of them ended getting ruined to some degree.
This version 2.0 has a few of extra advantages too, firstly the 3 light settings let me set the light level to improve the battery life. The head of the LED can be pointed in all directions so once I had clamped the bbq light to the grill handle, I didn't have to adjust it at any point after that.
But one thing that I didn't expect was how effective the bonus pair of Grillhawk grilling glasses were. I was a a little unsure at first as I knew it would be an ideal opportunity for my family to mock me however using them was well worth the jokes at my expense.
I have often found my eyes get very sore after hours standing above the grill, but these grilling glasses changed that completely and probably saved my eyelashes and eyebrows a few times during the course of the night.
Genuinely, I was really pleased with this purchase, the light did its job and the grilling glasses made the whole purchase really good value.
