Buying BBQ gifts for them means YOU get a gift too.  I made this Ultimate Grilling Gift Guide with OVER 40 grilling gift ideas for people who love to barbecue!

Basic BBQ or grilling gifts ideas for men


Great Grilling Gifts: BBQ Basics

If your guy is new to grilling (or just needs an update of his BBQ tools) here are some basics that every guy would love to receive.

BBQ Apron  It may seem funny to see a guy in an apron but they will seriously enjoy having quick access to their grilling tools

BBQ Apron 2

BBQ Tool Set This toolset has so many different things that you need for your best BBQing.

Safe Grill Brush  Did you know the old wire brushes can break off, leaving pieces of wire in your burger? If you are still using that kind here is a great new brush that is safe.

Wireless Meat Thermometer This is a must-have (especially for smoking meats). Put the sensor in the meat and then you can take the thermometer with you. It will alarm you when certain temperatures have been reached. We love ours!

Meat Cleaver Knife– A great butcher knife can make a huge difference when preparing meat for the grill or smoker.

Chef Knife A little cheaper of an option for a good knife.

BBQ Gloves– These gloves allow you to handle the meat and serving dishes without getting burnt. This particular set of gloves is sized larger for men.

Beginner Propane Grill– This is a great starter grill if you don’t already have one.

Beginner Smoker– When we first talked about trying a smoker it was a little intimidating, and this was what a friend recommended. We are still using this one and it works amazing. It is a great size and we have used it a ton.

Mid-level Traeger Smoker– This is a mid-level smoker for people looking to do bigger cuts of meat or more types of meat at one time.


Extra grilling accessories for gifts for men


Extra Accessories for Grilling and Barbecueing

Reusable Grill MatThese aren’t a necessity but will keep your grill looking new and clean (and they are dishwasher safe, woot!)’Now let’s get a little more specific with some meat specific grill gift ideas.

Grill Basket– If you love grilled vegetables but don’t have the time to skewer them, this is a great option with amazing reviews.

BBQ Claws These are great for moving large pieces of meat from grills and/or shredding it

Grilling Recipe Books

These are great gift ideas for the griller who already has everything!

BBQ Sauce Recipe Book

Keto Rubs and Sauces Recipe book– If your guy is doing a Keto diet here is a great companion book for barbecuing

Paleo Grilling Recipes


Gifts for men who love hamburgers


Grilling Gifts for guys who love hamburgers

Great American Burger Book This cookbook has  some  great burger  recipes (and amazing reviews!)

Burger Press- Have you used a burger press before? This is a high quality one that will  make uniform  burgers (that cook evenly.)

Stuffed Burger Press -This is such a cool idea! Add yummy things to the INSIDE of your burger! It comes with recipe ideas also.

Hamburger Flipper 

Wicked Juicy Burger Flavoring– This would be a fun addition to a BBQ and add some delicious and unique flavor.

Specialty Ketchup Trio– If your guy loves ketchup give him these great options.

Hamburger Basket I think these baskets would be a fun way to serve burgers.

Hamburger basket liners  

French Fry Serving basket– These are so fun to serve fries in. Here is an option that has eight (a great deal)

DIY Hamburger Seasoning This looks delicious and would be a fun DIY grill gift for  dad or grandpa



Grilling Gifts for guys who love ribs

Smoker Box for Gas or Charcoal BBQ – This is an inexpensive way to turn a normal barbecue into a smoker.

Rib Rack- This rack makes it easier to cook the ribs evenly and add the sauce. 

Rib Rub Trio (Carolina, Memphis and New Orleans Style Rib Rubs)

Western Rib Rub Trio (California, Texas and Kansas City Style Rib Rubs)

Flavorize Cookbook-This highly rated book includes great marinades, injections, brines, rubs and glazes.


Gift ideas for guys who like kebabs


Grilling Gift Ideas for guys who love Kebabs

Kebab Maker– Now this is kind of a funny name for what this is.  When I think of kebabs I think pieces of meat alternating with veggies. A more accurate name for this gadget might be “hamburger-on-a-stick-maker.” Haha! But it actually looks really cool! Combine ground meats with herbs and small veggies then stick the kebab stick in the middle and squeeze the meat onto it. I think it would work great for Keto eaters, you could even wrap the meat with bacon!

Kebab Sticks– These are high-quality sticks which makes kebab-ing much easier.

Kebab Cookbook– this has a big variety of kebabs including seafood and vegan options.


BBQ Chicken Grilling accessories and gifts


Grilling Gifts for guys who love BBQ Chicken

Chicken Roaster Rack – If you’ve ever heard of beer can chicken, this is the fancy way to make it.  You don’t even have to use alcohol, it also works with your favorite soda! Pour the soda in the container and position a whole chicken on top. This keeps the chicken moist and makes for a delicious bird!

Chicken Wing/Leg Roasting pan – This is actually listed as a jalapeno roasting pan for the barbecue, but it also works for chicken legs or wings (and makes it easier to baste).

Marinade Injector– I’ve never actually used one of these but this one has amazing reviews.
Marinade Packets – This is an assortment of marinade packets and all you need to do is add juice.

Grilling Gift Subscription Box

If you aren’t sure what would be the best gift for the grill-loving dad in your life, consider giving a Grill Masters Club Subscription box! You can gift a 1, 3, 6 or 12-month subscription. Each box contains “contains 4-5 products including rubs, sauces, marinades, recipes, and other mystery items.”  Use one of my free gift tags to tell dad he’s going to get a monthly BBQ box! Wouldn’t it be so much fun for everyone if dad gets new grilling products to try every month? 

Don’t forget to download these great (and free!) gift tags that go along with your Great Grill Gifts.  Did you see something that will work for your guy? Is your mouth watering like mine is?
