Keep Your BBQ Tools & Utensils Organized With This Handy Hack

The sun is out, the temperature is up, and you're barbecuing in the summer sun like it's going out of style. The only problem is that you're having a hard time keeping your barbecue tools and utensils organized, and they're strewn about and piling up haphazardly around the new grill you just bought in time for summer. If you're having a hard time finding the space for the BBQ tools you use at the grill, you might want to put some effort into keeping things more organized at your next cookout. Fortunately, a simple, handy hack can help keep you organized when grilling out. That hack? Using a magnetic tool strip or magnetic Scotch tape to hold BBQ utensils such as spatulas and tongs.

Magnetic tool strips aren't just for standard handyman tools or kitchen knives, but can be used for BBQ purposes as well — they can fit in well as part of an outdoor grill station. Consider sticking a magnetic tool strip or strip of magnetic tape to the side of your grill to stay organized. Doing so can help you avoid running out of space for utensils while grilling and can prevent them from piling up or falling while you're cooking out.

Organizing your BBQ tools using a magnetic tool strip

To keep your BBQ tools organized with this hack, you'll simply need to buy a magnetic tool strip from a home improvement store. However, before you do, think carefully about the product you buy. Check whether the magnetic tool strip lists a weight capacity, and ensure it will have the strength to stay hanging properly while holding all of your weighty BBQ tools and utensils.

You should also make sure to get a magnetic strip that's long enough to hold all of your utensils. It should fit on your grill or wherever you decide to attach it. Additionally, consider whether the strip seems durable or not. Verify that it's made out of strong materials and will be resistant to any wear and tear that may occur. Although you'll still need to take the time to clean grime build-up on your grill utensils, with this hack, you'll no longer need to worry about having a place to store these useful tools.
