Best Christmas Gifts for Grillers

June 23, 2022 10 min read

The fact that it is not yet Christmas everywhere does not mean that the holidays are not a terrific time to look for the ideal grilling gear for the person in your life who thrives when they are gathered around an open fire. (Besides, who doesn't enjoy a good BBQ in the winter?) The one and only obstacle? There is a wide selection of equipment for barbecuing available.

Do you truly require those seven-in-one gadgets that can flip, scrape, and do who knows what else? What about tongs that are incomprehensibly long? In a nutshell, the response is negative. We talked to passionate grillers, chefs, and pitmasters about the items they think would be nice to give (or receive), then combed through our archives to find even more noteworthy items in order to help you find the best Christmas gifts for grillers. You know, the stuff that's actually super useful and special. 

We have selected some excellent meats and marinades, as well as pans and cookware, excellent charcoal, and other helpful grilling items; in addition, Famvibe selected unique Christmas gifts for grillers.

1. Pans and Cookware

If one is determined enough, it is possible to prepare a complete meal on a grill, including the main dish, the sides, and even the dessert. Because of this, you should consider giving the Christmas gift of a pan made of carbon steel because it is an excellent heat conductor and can readily survive the high temperatures that can be found within a grill. "Because they are very hefty, I use mine for everything from pressing Cubanos to making paella," says Chef Jordan Wallace, who is the culinary director of Pizzeria Locale in Denver. "I use mine for everything from pella to pressing Cubanos." "And these are fantastic when cooked over a coal or wood fire."

2. All-Clad Stainless-Steel Outdoor Square Grilling Basket

It can be set over any form of grill (charcoal, gas, or even wood fire) and loaded with loose vegetables, shrimp, fries, and so on." It prevents the stickiness of the grill grates that would otherwise be caused by these more delicate foods.

3. Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Reversible Griddle With Handles

This cast-iron griddle is a favorite among professional chefs. Shaya describes it as "the indoor grill that's closest in spirit to firing up the charcoal." Obviously, if you want to convert the grate surface of your grill into a flattop, you may also place it directly on the grill itself. Because of its design, it is especially convenient to store.

4. Carbon Steel Paella Pan

This carbon-steel paella pan was recommended to us. He was helping us research where to buy fish online for our article. "Heats fast," is how Campos describes the material known as carbon steel, which is the preferred metal for paella pans as well as woks. "In addition, its surface area is larger than that of most pans, which enables you to get a good sear and caramelization," Because it is able to maintain its temperature, you can also use it as a serving dish, and the food will remain warm for an extended period of time.

5. Charcoals and Grilling Tools

After putting it through its paces alongside a dozen or so other varieties, according to Stephens, chef Andrew Henshaw found Thaan to be the most suitable option. Henshaw told Stephens that Thaan imparts "just the proper amount of smokiness," in contrast to charcoal, which may sometimes overwhelm the flavor of the meat with its smoky aroma. She says that the bricks are the "ideal size and shape," each having a thin tunnel running through the center of the narrow one to allow for ventilation. This, in turn, enables the bricks to burn evenly. They are also a more environmentally friendly option than typical charcoal, "since they're created with wood from rambutan fruit trees, which is a renewable resource," according to the manufacturer.

6. BBQ Dragon Cordless Grill 

This handy little device can be clipped onto any barbecue or smoker, and it will assist you in getting those coals burning quickly and evenly.

7. Artisan Griller Insulated Cooking Gloves

"The cotton-lined gloves feature a neoprene rubber coating and were created for serious barbecuers who have to handle hot meat on the smoker. Because of this, the gloves are waterproof, stain proof, and (most importantly) greaseproof.

8. Thermapen ONE

A meat thermometer that can easily and quickly determine when meat has reached the appropriate temperature after being grilled is an accessory that every person who enjoys using a grill really needs to have. When you're hovering over a hot grill, that speed makes a discernible difference in the overall experience. 

9. Indoor/Outdoor Cheese Melting Dome

Although it works wonderfully for helping the cheese on top of her burgers melt, you will appreciate this inexpensive and versatile tool for a variety of other reasons as well. The smoke is trapped on the veggies and the dish is kept warm after it is removed from the grill.

10. Heritage Foods Single-Bone Rib-Eye Roast

At this point, it purchases beef from this particular brand "very much exclusively." You can claim that the cuts are quite fresh and of a very good grade.

11. Nuñez de Prado

Olive oil is a versatile ingredient that may be used in a variety of different ways. This olive oil is from the Andalusia region of Spain and, according to Waxman, it is excellent for both cooking meat and making marinades.

12. Boiled Cider Syrup

The boiled cider has "sort of pure apple essence." It is just this sweetness that makes it such a great asset to have in one's collection of barbeque implements. "Grillmasters use it as the base of marinades, where it tenderizes meat and its somewhat acidic and delicate flavor combines with wood smoke," explains one source.

13. Egg Charcoal Grill

Those who have a passion for grilling probably already own at least one good barbecue on which to practice their hobby. But genuine perfectionists are aware that using different tools can lead to a variety of outcomes, and as a result, you could be considering treating them to something new that they can use for their favorite pastime. Real barbecue enthusiasts consider the  Egg to be one of the best barbecues available. 

14.  Digital Electric Smoker

The truth is, you can cook everything that someone would want to barbecue with the Masterbuilt smoker, and it's far more wonderful than it would be on the BBQ.

15. Looftlighter

The Looftlighter is a former Swedish actor, and director.

It looks like either a shotgun microphone, or a curling iron, but it’s actually a super insane lighter for charcoal and kindling.

16. BBQ Chimney of Insanity

Many charcoal users have already discovered the convenience of employing a charcoal chimney starter. If you don’t know what that is, we’ve got an in-depth look and buyers guide right here: Best chimney starter buying guide. A chimney starter can help speed up the very long process of igniting your charcoal.

This is a small, portable fan that can assist in hastening the igniting process for charcoal. Simply attach it to the ledge of your grill, point it in the direction of the embers, and switch it on.

The Smoking Gun, this is the quickest way to create a flavor similar to light smoke to your cuisine while remaining inside.

You first load the chamber with your combustible material — according to Breville, you can use wood chips, tea leaves, dried herbs, or spices — then you light it on fire and turn on the fan. You won't have to wait long until fragrant smoke starts coming out of the nozzle.

It reminds me a little of one of those steam-blasting fabric de-wrinklers that you can find in some types of businesses that sell clothes.

19. Meat Claws

Utilize this stainless steel pellet or sawdust basket to impart additional smoke flavor into your dish. Its primary function is to generate smoke for use in cold smoking, although it can also be used for hot smoking.

24. Grillbot Automatic Grill Cleaner

This is a little robot minion whose sole responsibility is to bounce about your grill and clean it as it cooks. In all seriousness! A child's bump-and-go toy is comparable to Grillbot in that it can adjust its course when it collides with an object.

Grillbot, which is not a toy, possesses three revolving brushes that scrape away the crud deposits that have accumulated on the grill. It will continue to move and scrape in the same manner until you turn it off.

25. BBQ Tongs With Sound

Is this the most hipster-yet-nerdy barbecue tool currently available on the market? You decide how this goes!

To put it plainly, there's nothing special—just a pair of ordinary tongs—but they happen to have the appearance of a lightsaber from Star Wars. Oh yeah, and it mimics the sound of a lightsaber as well.

25. Stuffed Burger Press

Create gourmet burgers by stuffing them with cheese, sauce, bacon, peppers, or any other ingredients that strike your fancy.
