12 best new grilling products of 2024

The hottest new grilling trends and product releases.

The sun is shining and the grill is sizzling: Summer 2024 is almost here, and we’ve found everything you need for BBQ season. Scroll to the bottom for our most popular grilling recipes.

What’s trending?

  • Griddling is all the rage (you can thank the Blackstone griddle trend on TikTok a few years back for kicking off their rise). Capable of tackling many of the jobs a barbecue can do, griddles are also ideal for cooking things like bacon and pancakes, and the heat levels are usually easier to control than on a typical grill.
  • Grilling gadgets keep getting smarter and more high-tech (the world’s first AI-powered grill is anticipated to launch soon).
  • The barbecue sauce market is exploding, with new product offerings coming out from established brands and new players alike. Inventive flavours and health-conscious ingredients are two trademarks of the new sauces on the scene.
