Top 5 BBQ Gifts for Dad

Father's Day will be here in no time! Whether you’re looking for a small, simple gift or a full blown griller's toolkit, you’ll want to include these essential BBQ tools for a summer full of delectable BBQs:

1.      Grill basket – A stainless steel grill basket or grill wok is a must for grilling the best veggies, shrimp or other fragile fish.  Keeps foods intact while letting the smokiness permeate through the basket for that great BBQ flavor. 

2.       Meat and fish spice rub – A seasoning rub should be kept on hand at all times for easy preparation of meats and fish. There are many good rubs on the market or you can make your own by mixing together equal amounts of salt, sugar, pepper, and other spices such as cumin, red pepper, all depends on your individual taste.  Explore!

3.       BBQ sauce – Another must to have on hand at all times.  Choose a favorite BBQ flavor – spicy, hickory, or sweet.  As an alternative to the rub, a sauce is great for adding during cooking and dipping during your meal. When it comes to sauce and rubs, we're partial to Uncle Bob's from Texas!   

4.       A good flipping tool – Whether it's burgers, fish, or steaks, he'll need a good spatula for flipping. 

5.       Griller’s Cookbook – With a good sauce and rub, you won’t always need recipes, but a good griller’s cookbook will enlighten you (and Dad) to some new and interesting foods to grill, like various fruits for salads and dessert! Grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream is one of my personal favorites!

As an added bonus for the chef, throw in a drink chiller.  He'll appreciate it on those hot summer days...or any day I'm sure!
These are two of our BBQ gift baskets, which include most of the items above!  So if you want to go full gamut, consider one of our stylish BBQ gift baskets!


Have a happy day!
