What can you get the grilling enthusiast in your life that he doesn’t already have? There are three main categories of gifts. We’ll look at three different potential gift categories, great for Father’s Day, birthdays, graduation or any occasion.
Accoutrements for the Grill
Consider getting a grill light. It is an LED light that provides clear lighting so that Dad doesn’t burn the meat again. Grill lights are most often used in the winter and the summer. In the winter, it lets you grill meat in the afternoon even after the sun has gone down. Summer barbeques are often not practical until after the sun has gone down and temperatures have started to fall. A grill light let’s Dad grill whenever is convenient, not just when the sun is up.
Each chef wants to put their own mark on the menu. A personalized steak branding iron lets Dad do just that. When placing the order, simply indicate the initials or name to be place on the brand. Review the number of letters allowed before placing the order, since some brand makers have a 3 letter maximum while others allow whole names. These branding irons often come in a gift box that can be reused.
Invest in Food Safety
Is it hot enough for you? The food on the grill, that is. Give Dad a digital meat thermometer so that he knows the meat is actually well done or safely done. You’ll be able to enjoy Dad’s cooking without lurking fears of food poisoning. And a digital thermometer offered to improve his grilling can do double-duty, providing an accurate temperature reading for roasts in the oven. Select models that are rechargeable to avoid the hassle of changing out batteries in the middle of cooking. Buy a unit that is dishwasher safe so that it is easy to clean between uses.
If Dad likes to set food on the grill and wander off, consider a remote meat thermometer that beeps or even speaks when the meat is done. One remote thermometer even has a walkie-talkie or pager that will ping Dad no matter how far he’s wandered from the grill.
Variety is the Spice of Life
What else can you do to support the grilling enthusiast in your life? You can add variety and literal spice to his (grilling) life. You could sign him up for a BBQ sauce of the month club. Dad receives a different, exotic barbeque sauce each month for the duration of the membership. Stop debating about whether you want regular barbeque sauce or spicy, and let Dad receive monthly deliveries of BBQ sauces with flavors such as beer flavored, bacon flavored and more. For families that enjoy Mexican and Southwestern cuisine, consider a salsa club.
There is actually a Sirloin of the Month Club, Bacon Club and a Lobster of the Month club, if you want to know that Dad is using the highest quality meats on his grill. Or order a Pizza of the Month club membership for a great side dish. If Dad enjoys a beer with his steak, consider signing him up for a microbrew beer of the month club. Or get him a wine of the month club or a wine basket. You can select the club membership length that suits your budget, regardless of the type you pick. All of these clubs are available in three month, four month, six month and twelve month deals.
