Get The Backyard of Your Dreams

We can help you every step of the way.

Here is our pick of the top three flashlights to grill by! Cooking in the great outdoors can be a challenge. You may not have all the conveniences of your home kitchen at your disposal. One issue with cooking outside is the fact that my guests stay far beyond when the sun goes down.

No matter where you do your outdoor cooking we've got you covered. Whether you are deep in the woods, besides your beautiful waterfall or on your new patio, these lighting solutions will let you cook well into the night. 

If you have a permanent solution for your outdoor cooking then this review is not for you. But if you are looking to carry on into the night with your friends, family, good times and great food, read on as we find the perfect lighting solution for you.

Cave Tools BBQ Grill Light

Our first light is the Cave Tools BBQ Grill Light. This light features 3 different light settings to fully illuminate your grilling surface. Don't leave anything to chance. With 100 lumens of light you will be sure your meal is cooked to perfection.

The universal clamping system will fit any grill handle. Simply clamp it on your grill and enjoy 360 degree positioning to aim the light exactly where you need it. 

The clamp on this light was originally plastic, and had issues breaking when it was over tightened. The new light is equipped with an aluminum clamp that will not snap when overtightened, and is built to last.

If you can’t stand the heat, don’t worry this light can. The Cave Tools BBQ Grill Light is not only heat resistant, but is also water resistant too. Built to stand up to the elements, as well as any grill master can.

Be the pit master you were born to be. This light will keep the good times rolling well into the night.

Mosfiata Head Lamp

Our next pic is the Mosfiata Head Lamp. This option is perfect if you are a one man show. This is the ultimate utilitarian light support system. Place light where you need it most… right in front of your face. It isn’t the most glamorous of the bunch, but it gets the job done well. 

If you are the type of person who is concerned about messing up your hair, or the possibility of “helmet hair” then this may not be for you. This light can also be utilized for many other tasks around the house giving you a completely hands free light source. 

One drawback is that it may be a little off putting if you are entertaining. Having a conversation with someone may get a bit uncomfortable. Your guests may feel like they are being interrogated under the bright light. 

This headlamp features 8 different settings to give you the right amount of light you need. When fully charged it will last for up to 6 hours. 

Rechargeable battery is sealed, and the headset has an IPX4 waterproof rating. You can keep the grill cooking through rain or snow and not worry about losing your light. The battery is charged via USB allowing it to be charged just about anywhere.

Kosin Barbecue Grill Light

Our third pick is the Kosin Barbecue Grill Light. These lights have a magnetic base and a movable goose neck design to put light right where you need it. 

This is the most elegant of or group. Adding a bit of class crossed with utility. Because of the magnetic base they are easily moved from place to place. Target your grilling surface and cook with confidence. 

The Kosin Barbecue Grill Light is one of Amazons best sellers with over 500 positive reviews.

This set comes with 2 lights to completely cover your food prep area. It uses AAA batteries which are included. The bright wide light beam lights up your grilling masterpiece so you can cook with confidence.


Any one of these grill flashlights will get the job done. All you need to decide is what kind of experience you want. Going hands free with a light on your head has its advantages for sure. If you are sent out in the cold dark winter to prepare some gourmet grilled food, the headlamp my be your golden ticket.

The other two lights are a bit more permanent and something you could leave with your grill, due to their waterproof characteristics. I hope we were able to “shed some light” on grilling after dark. Let the good times roll and keep the food coming all night long! Until next time, enjoy your backyard water garden.
