A Grilling Thermometer
Even the best cuts of meat can be compromised when they aren’t cooked to the ideal temperature. To help your gift recipient achieve perfectly grilled steaks and other meats every time, take the guesswork out of the equation for them with a grilling thermometer. Beyond all the features you’d expect in a grilling thermometer, today’s high-tech options also connect to apps, so that enterprising cooks can step away from the grill to attend to other food prepping tasks.
A Personalized Apron
Whether you go for a standard monogram, a full name or include a catch phrase or other design, a personalized apron makes a great gift for home chefs and grill masters. Just be sure your choice is made from a material that conducts heat poorly and is durable, stain-resistant, low-maintenance, and features pockets of various sizes to stash mitts, tools and other kitchen supplies. An adjustable neck strap and back tie can also help ensure the apron fits as intended.
A Tool Rack
High-quality grilling tools are only useful when the griller knows where they are. For easy organization, deck out your gift recipient’s deck or patio with a stylish mounted tool rack where they can keep their tongs, spatula, grill brush and other supplies handy.
A Portable Grill
Let your recipient take the show on the road with a portable grill. Great for camping, tailgating and other adventures, handy lightweight designs travel well and set up in a snap. With charcoal and gas varieties available, you are certain to find a model that fits your recipient’s needs and preferences.
