For that person in your family who waits all year to get the grill ready for summer, there’s no better gift than something related to fire, coal and a hunk of meat. But finding that perfect gift can be hard. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of gift ideas that are perfect for the grillmaster in your life.
Help the grillmaster of the family cook with ease by surprising them with this electric torch to make it easy to light a charcoal grill without getting burned by a lighter-fluid-induced tower of flames.
Frequent grillers might notice dried residue building up on the grates after a while. But it can be easily removed with this grill scraper and brush.
Grilling can be a dangerous business if you don’t follow safe protocols. That’s why it's important to make sure your pitmaster is wearing the right attire, including these heat-resistant gloves, which will protect their hands from the heat.
Give the ones who love to play with flavors this DIY BBQ sauce kit. They can experiment with making their own signature sauce. And the foodie travelers on your gift list can reminisce about the flavors of Texas, Memphis or other barbecue regions with this distinctive barbecue sauce set.
For the cooks who insist on even coverage of sauce over their chicken and ribs, this basting brush would be a great addition to their collection of handy tools.
One of the best parts of barbecue is that smoky flavor, and a smoker box is the best way to get the job done. Place soaked wood chips into the box and put the box under the grill grates, directly over the heat. The vents of the box direct the smoke to the food so the smoky flavor really comes through. This handy tool also prevents wood from catching on fire.
Do you have that one family member who uses the same equipment for years but refuses to give it up even though it doesn’t work like it once did? Well, it’s time to convince them to retire the old for the new with a brand new charcoal or gas grill. This charcoal grill has nearly 7,000 five-star ratings on Amazon and comes with a built-in lid thermometer and other great features that facilitate an easier grilling experience. If they prefer gas grills, get them this stainless steel gas grill that is big enough to cook for large gatherings. It has an average rating of 4.5 stars and is one of Amazon’s top choices for gas grills.
If your loved one is obsessed with celebrity chefs, let them enter “Rodney Scott’s World of BBQ,” where they can learn grilling techniques, tips and tricks from the legendary pitmaster.
The person who doesn’t know whether to use rubs or sauces can have all of their barbecue questions answered in “BBQ&A with Myron Mixon” — and if they're a Myron fan make sure they watch the video of him making barbecue ribs on The Daily Meal's YouTube Channel. For the grilling enthusiast who hates using store-bought barbecue sauce, get them “Barbecue Sauces: The Art of Making Sauces, Marinades, Rubs, Glazes and Etc. for Real BBQ.”
