Light for Grilling

As the days get shorter I find myself cooking in the dark more and more. I don't have a patio light near my egg - does anyone recommend any particular type of grill light or are they all about the same? Thanks!

    <p />Georgie,
    I got this one on line several years ago and love it. It is plenty bright, has a heavy base, and hooks for hanging things. If I could find another I would buy it. -RP

    Georgie,
    me too - here's my favorite two solutions although the hard hat is my favorite and that NiteBlaster is BRIGHT!

    Then this light from Lowe's is good also when I don't want to look like such a dork!

    Don from NJ, I hear you about the cheap price, but I just screwed a couple fender washers on my table to serve as quick release pads for the earth magnets on that light. That way mine is easy on easy off!

    Now you see it...

    Georgie,
    Wish I did, but as I recall it was one of those dump the excess inventory places. I've found them in several sites, but they are all sold out. -RP

  • RRP,[p]Damn fine idea! Might have to implement that as well, i think i'm getting a cover for the table, so i would need to remove the light. I shall steal your idea sir![p]Don

  • Ron,
    Do you get good light out of this? I've been using my portable, adjustable 18V DeWalt light that came with the tools.

    The light from that is good but I don't want to knock it over in the dark.

    Flashback Bob,
    Surprising as it may be the answer is yes it is bright. It has 6 small LEDs. It's a cold almostlight blue light, but I can clearly see the color of my meat even in a 700° fire. The base can also be clamped, but I find the earth magnets have quite the grip and then that long thin neck and the ultra light head makes it very sturdy.
