How to Find Unique BBQ Gifts That Will Make Him Flip
Next time your dad’s making barbecue ask him about the go-to spices he uses. There is a whole world spices, rubs, and salts for finessing the flavors of meats, which could make a whole basket of BBQ gifts for dad.
Does your grillmaster wing it or is he schooled in the art of barbecue with an entire shelf devoted to grilling cookbooks? Keep that in mind before considering barbecue literature.
Snoop around for style cues before scooping up personalized barbecue gifts. Not every dude will jive with the gift of monogrammed tongs. On the flip side, if he wears an apron designed with slapdash humor, then that cheeky platter will be a winner.
If you don’t know what kind of grill your ‘cue master uses, find out. It’s important. (Ask family if you can’t snoop out the answer yourself.) If he has a gas grill and no smoker box, it will be harder to get flavor from wood chips. The art of smoking wood chips and the artisanal flavors — hickory, applewood, pecan, maple and more — will instantly up his grilling game.
Sometimes it’s helpful to keep it simple. For BBQ gift ideas, think on go-to grilling accessories and gear that get used often, meaning he could probably use reinforcements. Skewers are a perfect example, especially if he’s a kabob fan.
Unique BBQ gifts can look at ways to expose him to barbecue from other destinations. If you can’t take your barbecue maven on the road, then look into gift ideas that bring flavors from afar to his grill.
