We’ve got the Best Grill Gifts because there is literally no older form of cooking than to chop up some nice cuts of meat and throw them on the fire. A couple of technical improvements over the year have relieved us of the need to make a spit, and collect firewood, avoid saber-toothed tigers…But the gist of it is the same. And in this modern age a unique player has entered the scene…the modern-day griller. Man or woman, young or old, this is a person who appreciates the primal act of cooking over a fire. And if you still don’t know much about this wonderful art, get yourself some valuable knowlegde on grilling first.
21 Must-Get Grill Gifts for the Grill Master
There is something special about the griller, who tends the fire and takes requests as the party goes on around them. We respect the griller. We know that the griller is carrying a legacy that stretches deep into the past and will continue long into the future. And with that respect, comes the need to find awesome grill gifts for this pillar of society, the grill master. By the way, let’s be real: a grill master is anyone who can cook on the grill without burning everything to a crisp. It’s an art.
Best Grilling Tools
These are some awesome things that are used with or inside the grill proper.
I’m sure some of you have had the experience of trying to grill bacon and discovered that it’s an exercise in futility. There is literally no way to do it right – until now. This grilling rack is designed so that the bacon can drape over it, and it catches the grease so that the flare-ups don’t burn all of your other food. Seriously if you are trying to make bacon-cheddar burgers, you’ve got to get this thing. It’s the perfect tool for the job.
You know how when you’re grilling someone always has the bright idea of using tin foil to cover the grill? It never works out right. Either the tin foil sticks to the food or rips up and falls into the fire…These grilling mats solve that problem. No need to feverishly clean your grill before the guests arrive, you can grill on these awesome mats and get the results you were looking for, even with tricky foods like bacon-wrapped-anything or stuffed peppers.
Vegetables have a tendency of being a pain in the behind to grill properly. In other words, they burn literally every time. This vegetable grilling basket prevents that problem from terrorizing the party, and the best part is this grill basket doesn’t discriminate against its contents – you can also throw the seafood in this wok-like device and be sure you’re not going to overcook it.
Make no mistake, this is not just a set of different types of wood chips for grilling – it’s a stainless-steel container that lets you use wood chips in both charcoal and gas grills! Furthermore, the box contains the ash and woodchips, so they don’t get all over your food and ruin it. If you haven’t tried grilling with wood chips, you’re seriously missing out! The first time I used woodchips to smoke my meats rather than just throwing them on the grill, I was literally struck dumb by how delicious it tasted. And if you need an awesome grill gift for the grill master you know, this will definitely be appreciated.
This awesome chicken roaster is good for the grill or oven – and can be filled with some liquid for a moist, delicious chicken. Although beer or wine is the best, if the grill master you know wants to get creative, they can fill it with any kind of delicious concoction they want! The possibilities are endless here and the whole thing can be broken down and thrown in the washing machine for easy cleanup.
These planks are perfect for getting that cedarwood smoked flavor that makes food truly irresistible. They’re super thick, so if you give them enough time to soak in water (never forget to do this before throwing wood chips on the grill!) you can even use them more than once. Super awesome value for a grill master who needs a grill gift this season.
This meat thermometer is literally perfect. Not only is it digital, so the grill master you know isn’t hovering their hands over the hot grill for too long, but it gives them an instant read on the temperature. Furthermore, it’s waterproof and can be calibrated – so it won’t give false readings after being used a few times. A really nice touch is the temperature requirements for different meats that’s on the top of the thermometer.
This is grill gift is nothing short of awesome. If the grill master you know truly takes pride in his or her work, they’re going to want to let everyone know who has made the awesome steak or quesadilla they’re eating. These branding irons are customizable so you can put their initials on them, or any witty grilling phrase you want!
Whether you know someone who grills a few times a season, or every other night, this is a perfect grill gift set for them. The tools are stainless steel, and the box they’re stored in is aluminum. Yes, I said there is a box! And you know what that means, no more looking around for half an hour for the spatula. It’s got a whole bunch of grilling utensils that cover all your bases, from cleaning up the grill iron to skewering some corn on the cob.
Sometimes it’s just not the right moment to do a proper grilling session outside. Whether it’s because of your living space (maybe you’re in an apartment with no patio) or maybe it’s just way to cold out there or a storm is threatening to ruin your grilling session; this handy little device will save the day. It gets extremely hot and cooks everything you’d normally put on the grill to perfection. Look, this is a great thing to have on hand in the kitchen even if you aren’t a griller. Nobody’s perfect, anyway.
Man or woman, the grill master needs to have their hands free for optimal grilling. They can’t be fumbling around for their beer every twelve seconds, which is likely to get knocked off the grill and turn into a pile of glass shards that the dog decides to start sniffing, compounding the problem. Furthermore, all grill masters know the mistake of putting their beer anywhere near the grill and enjoying a nice hot beer 5 minutes later. Solve these problems with the beer holster! It’s super easy to put on too so if your grill master decides they need a rest; someone can take the holster in their stead.
This is the ultimate tool for a grilling party. How frustrating is it for guests and hosts to have to constantly go in and outside for the cutting board, or plates, or another beer, or whatever it happens to be! It’s tiresome! This grilling station is perfect for all of that, so you can spend more time with your guests outside, rather than hunkered down in the kitchen preparing stuffed peppers. Do all that outside, with the people you invited over in the first place! Not only is this thing on wheels, but it looks great too.
If you just moved into your new place and are tired of using the cooler that looks like it came from the college tailgate, this is the cooler for you. The inside is insulated with cork, which is really perfect for the job, and it looks super classy. The outside of the cooler is black, (seriously, I’m so tired of those blue and white coolers) and it has wheels and a luggage style handle so you can roll it around to wherever it needs to be. The best part is it comes in 3 different sizes!
Ever wonder how they get that pulled pork chopped up so well down south? The answer is they don’t chop it at all. They use meat shredder claws like these to pull off chunks of meat rather than chopping it up. If the grill master you know is looking to make awesome pulled pork or beef brisket, these claws are the tool for the job.
Stuffed burgers are great in theory, but they are notoriously difficult to pull off in reality. This nice little tool solves that problem for good. With it, you can make stuffed burgers that are uniform and don’t leak their contents all over the place. It’s a really great BBQ gift for someone who knows their way around a burger patty and wants to take their game to the next level.
Whether you know a grill master or not, this BBQ gift should be in everyone’s kitchen, garage, or BBQ area for safety reasons if nothing else. They are super heat resistant gloves, so when something unexpected happens on the grill or anywhere else, the grill masters soft and gentle hands won’t be what is preventing them from preventing a small emergency from turning into a big one. These gloves are fireproof – that should be all you need to know.
If you yourself are a grill master, or you know someone who is, this is a straight up necessity. They might not think they need an apron, but they’re totally wrong. Why? First of all, you don’t want to leave the contents of sizzling burgers on your nice party shirt. And second, everyone has to be able to easily identify who is making this awesome food, or who to complain to if it’s horrible. The great part about this apron is that you can customize it with someone’s name!
This black tray is made of aluminum and is specially designed to transfer heat quickly. What does that even mean? It means that the tray allows your meats to defrost quickly, without having to microwave them or soak anything in hot water (have you noticed how that always leaves the meat smelling a little funky?) This is a great BBQ gift for the regular griller and they will instantly recognize the utility of being able to defrost meat. We all know that a lot of grilling happens on a whim, when we haven’t had hours and hours to prepare and defrost our food. All good when you have this tray.
It’s a sad truth that just because someone knows how to grill does not mean they know how to spice the food. This set solves that problem, because they’ve got 5 different super awesome spice mixes to use – from “citrus pepper” to “fresh bay.” You can even try out different themed sets, like one for people who love hot and spicy food. Don’t let the grill master mess everything up because his better half isn’t there to spice the meats – just let them use this awesome BBQ gift set!
Does the grill master you know always use the exact same dry rub? Yeah, it’s delicious, but too much of a good thing can also become…tiresome. Try out these dry rubs! They have really unique flavors like coffee black pepper rub, but also more traditional rubs for a prime rib or pork chop. Enjoy some direct injection flavor!
This salt block is really unique, and I didn’t realize how much it can upgrade a meal from just a standard grilling experience to something really classy. After finishing grilling some veggies and meats, the last thing you want to do is ruin it by throwing too much salt on there right? This is the perfect solution. The salt block can serve as a serving plate, so that all the food is perfectly salted by nature of the plate that it’s resting on! It’s a really fun way to deliver food.
Grilling really is an awesome hobby and way to cook and serve food. It’s communal in a way that we are quickly losing in this modern world where entire meals can be delivered to your door in minutes. If you or someone you know loves to grill, support them with a BBQ gift, because they’re doing something that’s really special, and we don’t want to lose. Especially if you are looking for gift ideas for men and you know that your hubby’s favorite hobby is…well…grilling, you might have hit the jackpot.
