BBQ Grill light Questions
 
I have a 22.5" OneTouch (Some call it a Kettle) Weber Charcoal Grill.
I'm searching for a grill light attachment and I can't decide.

To be honest, I'm not even really sure what I'm supposed to be looking for.
There are table lights, screw-in lights, LED lights, Solar lights, etc.
I'm looking for some direction.

I think that a magnetic grill light would be very useful for what I'm working with.
Anything clip-on would probably annoy me by making the lid uneven.

I'm just looking for some tips, some tricks; some helpful ideas to get headed in the right direction.

Thanks in advance brethren, I'm always grateful.

I really like the LED headlamps you can get at Home Depot for just a few bucks (well maybe $15)... Although you will look like a tree hugging dork, the light is always aiming at what you are look at. Also, the lights that attach to the grill always seem to get in the way in one form or another.

BTW, I have no qualms with looking like a tree hugging dork... :)

I use a head lamp I got from REI works great. It has 4 LED lights. It also works great for anything your working on. like above what ever your looking at the light is where you need it.

Rick from Ricks Tropical Delight has a cool magnetic light he uses on his BGE's.
It seemed to work great when I was there at his bash and hopefully he will chime in here shortly as to where he bought it.

I have a camo ball cap with built-in LEDs that works great for this. Nothing in the way, and both hands free.

I use a headlamp, too. I don't mind looking like a dork, either. Hey... If the headlamp fits, wear it! :nerd: :thumb:
