Here are some of the best grilling gifts for the grill enthusiasts. Novice, weekend enthusiast, or master – here are unique grilling gifts for them all!

Best Grilling Gifts for The Novice Griller

Are you choosing a grilling gift for someone new to grilling? Getting the right tools and some basic knowledge can help a novice move to the next level. For beginning grilling, there are some essential tools to make the experience soar.

Grilling Gift Essentials – It’s All About the Heat

The right temperature is key and a grill thermometer will get you there. When getting the grill ready, it’s got to be hot. A temperature of at least 500 degrees F is optimal for direct heat and will set up the beginning griller for a sear that keeps in the flavor of the food.

Overcooked meat is the most common mistake for a beginner. A quality meat thermometer is the best and only accurate way to determine when the meat is ready.

Best Grilling Gift for Charcoal Grills – Grill Chimney Starter

If your griller has a charcoal grill, a chimney starter is a must. Most grill masters agree that you should never start a grill with lighter fluid. The lighter fluid creates a quick flame that does not hold the heat, not to mention, the chemicals affect the taste of the food. The best way to start a charcoal grill is with a chimney starter.

Best Grilling Tool – Grill Cleaning Brush

A good quality brass wire cleaning brush is a must for any griller on your list. It is recommended a grill should be cleaned twice with each use. Clean it before you put the food on when the heat is high. Then again when the food is removed and the heat can still burn off the residue.
