12 Grilling Gifts for Father’s Day

Mar 25, 2022 | News

Father’s Day is coming up, and if you’re looking for an excellent gift for the grill master, look no further. Here are some of the best gifts for the grill master in your life.

1. Smoker Box

There’s no need to buy a whole smoker when you can add this to your grill. Chef Glenn Rolnick, director of culinary operations at Carmine’s and Virgil’s Real Barbecue, likes it because it provides “that true barbecue smoky taste without the need for a separate and huge smoker—plus it’s more affordable,” he remarked. Cherry and hickory wood chips are his favorites. “Soak your wood chips in cold water—for added taste, I use apple juice,” he concluded. “Heat until it begins to smoke” (in a covered grill). Add a marinated or well-seasoned beef, chicken, fish, or seafood cut to the mix. Keep the grill covered as much as possible to keep the smoke in.

2. Portable Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Grill rockstars looking for an inexpensive grill rockstar gift that’s both functional and fun should look towards this JBL wireless speaker! This speaker doesn’t just integrate with electronic devices to play music and provide a clear, crisp sound. It also has a battery that can last up to 16 hours, leaving plenty of time to listen to your favorite songs without worrying about how to charge your device! Plus, with the microphone, you can even use it as a speakerphone while cooking! This lightweight, compact speaker can be taken with you on the go and is the perfect addition to any grill rockstar!

3. Cast Iron Pizza Pan

Dad can make his tasty pizza any day of the week with this budget-friendly, pre-seasoned pan. You haven’t had pizza baked on the barbecue if you haven’t cooked it on a grill. Everything comes together quickly, and the crust develops a lovely smokey char. Additionally, cooking pizza on cast iron makes cleanup a breeze—no cheese gets stuck between the grates! This pan can be used on the stovetop, in the oven, or under the broiler in addition to the grill.

4. Kabob BBQ Skewers

Grilling season is here, so it’s time to think about delicious ways to make your meats, vegetables, and tasty desserts. Skewers are a great way to make tasty BBQ treats because metal skewers can turn food into delicious little kebabs. Not every skewer is created equal, though. That’s why you want to invest in skewers that won’t fall apart in the hot sun and will keep your food from sliding around. These skewers are perfect for grilling your favorite foods.

These skewers are popular on Amazon. Three thousand and two hundred of the nearly 4,000 reviews are five stars. Food slides “easily on and off without using veggie spray or oil,” according to fans, who also praise how “simple to clean” they are and how “easy to flip and remove from grilling surface” they are.

5. Wireless Bluetooth Meat Thermometer

A few things to consider when purchasing a grill thermometer. First, look at the quality of the materials in the device. Second, consider the device’s durability and how it will hold outdoors. Third, look at the range of the device. If you are going to be cooking for large parties, you need a thermometer that is capable of reaching high temperatures. Fourth, look at the probe tips. You want a device with at least one probe capable of reaching extremely high temperatures. Fifth, consider the features of the device. You want a machine that comes with a timer and has Bluetooth capabilities.

The Thermopro TP25 grilling thermometer has 5.0 Bluetooth technology that allows you to monitor your meals up to 500 feet away with the Thermopro app. This device comes with four color-coded stainless-steel probes that can be used to read four different types of food at once and a timer alarm that allows you to set a timer for each search. Even in the darkest situations, getting and reading an exact temperature is straightforward, thanks to the STEP-DOWN probe tip design and backlit LCD!

6. Grilling Prep and Serve Trays

The problem with most trays is that raw meat is not separated from cooked meat. With the Grilling Prep and Serve Nestable Trays, however, you get two separate trays that are easily separated. One tray (Black) has a non-stick surface for cooking the meat, and the other tray (Red) has a non-slip surface for prepping raw meat. The red tray can transfer the raw meat to the grill, and the black tray can move the cooked meat to the serving plate. Once the meat is cooked, you can use the red tray to transfer the cooked meat to the serving plate. With the slim design of these trays, they can be nested together and will not take up too much space in your kitchen. They are also made of melamine, so they are more durable than some of the other prep and serve trays. In addition to all these great features, they are dishwasher safe and BPA free, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking down over time and giving you a hard time cleaning or serving.

Grilling may be a tumultuous experience. Foods finish cooking at different times. Therefore it’s critical to keep raw and cooked meats apart. These trays can assist in keeping things safe when it comes to food: One tray should be reserved for raw meat and the other for cooked meats that have just come off the grill. They’re popular with customers because they’re “durable,” “simple to clean,” “stack nicely,” and “dishwasher safe.”

7. Grill Cleaning Kit

Finding the right cleaning tools for your grill, smoker, oven, or other kitchen tools can be challenging, but finding a tool that can clean all these appliances is even more difficult. You can spend $20 on one brush that claims to clean everything but scratches everything. Or, you can pay $10 for another grill brush, but it won’t fit in your kitchen sink. It’s more than just a grilling brush. It’s an extra-long grill cleaning kit with two wire brush heads for alternate use. One meeting is equipped with a scraper and can be used on various surfaces. This heavy-duty grilling brush set is made from stainless steel, a durable, heavy-duty material that doesn’t bend or break easily. It also includes a storage bag, which can help you keep your grilling tools neat and organized in the off-season.

For the best cooking results, a grill’s grates must be kept in tip-top form, and these wire brushes will do just that. This one is praised for its “very high quality” and sturdiness. It also includes an extra brush head replacement.

8. Cast Iron Grill Press

When it comes to grilling, you can only have one thing: delicious grilled meats. And you have a lot of work to do to ensure they turn out juicy and delicious. You have to move the heart around, flip it over, etc. But, through all that, will you have time to get out your grill press? Once you’ve used it, you’ll wonder how you used to grill without it! It’s super easy to use and dishwasher-safe. Plus, it has a wooden handle for comfort. The handle alone makes it worth getting! Whether making a juicy burger or delicious pork chops, you’ll love the grill marks the grill press puts on your food. You don’t need to worry because the cast iron grill press can hold up to the heat of a grill. It’s perfect to use when grilling sandwiches and creating paninis.

This year, smash burgers will be a summertime classic, and this grill press makes them incredibly simple to prepare. Amazon has 19,000 five-star reviews, so it’s safe to conclude that people like it. One reviewer said, “The weight is perfect, and the wood handle does not get hot.”

9. Smoking Chip Variety Pack

Western Wood Smoking Chips are a great way to add a delicious smoky flavor to your food. These chips are kiln-dried and made from hardwood, making them more resistant to moisture penetration. Western Wood Smoking Chips’ more prominent size and heavier weight add a unique flavor that blends well with other flavors. Smoking wood chips are also a great way to add a smoky flavor to food cooked on a smoker, in an oven, or on a grill. They are essential to many recipes, such as BBQ and Ribs. You will receive a great variety of wood chips in this pack, including oak, hickory, pecan, pecan (sugar-cured), and mesquite chips. This variety pack is great for trying out a wide variety of flavors.

If your father loves smokey-tasting food, he’ll need smoking chips for the best flavor. Apple, cherry, pecan, post oak, hickory, and mesquite woods are included in this variety pack. One reviewer said, “This is a fantastic beginner kit.” “Because the bags are small, you can see exactly what you like and don’t like.”

10. Griddle Accessory Tool Kit

If Dad likes to cook on the grill, he’ll need the appropriate tools. This set includes two spatulas, a chopper/scraper tool, and two spray bottles. They’re designed for use with a Blackstone Griddle but can also be used with grills with a griddle-top accessory. “The scraper blade is ideal for cleaning the griddle surface and scraping the tops of your grill’s metal grates,” one reviewer remarked.

This is the ultimate all-in-one griddle accessory pack for your outdoor grill. Restaurant Quality tools for griddled chefs everywhere! This kit contains two premium-quality forged steel spatulas, stainless steel chopper/scraper, and two bottles.

11. Grilling Spice Gift Set

Grill spices, like fresh bay, spiced habanero, and citrus pepper, should always be in your pantry. A reviewer stated, “This was a fantastic gift for my grill master dad.” “The flavors are fantastic, and the presentation is stunning.”

This Grilling Spice Gift Set includes five single-serve spice packets, each containing a different savory blend. They are certified organic, kosher (Kosher certified by Gesher K), non-GMO, non-irradiate, and have no artificial flavors. They are hand-mixed and packaged in the USA by Fresh Jax Co. Each spice packet is conveniently resealable and lasts for months if kept in a cool, dry area. This means you can keep this set around for months to add flavor to your favorite grilled foods. Whether you’re a meat lover, vegetarian, or salmon chaser, you’ll be able to find a seasoning combination in this collection that will add a little something extra to your next meal. Feel free to get creative, though. These spice blends are sure to bring out the flavor of any dish.

12. Grill Mat

You might be wondering what a grill mat is. It’s a barbecue mat that covers your grill grates and provides a smooth, level surface to cook on. They make cleanup “a snap” and are ideal for persons concerned about cross-contamination due to dietary restrictions.

These Heavy Duty Non-Stick BBQ Outdoor Grill & Baking Mats are highly durable, made of high-quality silicone, heat resistant up to 500°F, and can withstand high temperatures without melting or sticking!
