Last Minute Sizzlin’ Gifts for Grillmasters!

If you’re looking for last minute gifts that your grill-pro Santa will appreciate and undoubtedly use throughout the entire year, look no further than this list of red hot BBQ items.

Following are several recommendations with a little help from the jolly one at the holiday hibachi.

‘Tis the season for gift boxes and I recently discovered an outstanding one by MeatCrafters. From party appetizers to full-on feasts, this company has a great selection of cured and artisan meats. You can select your own bundle or choose from their various gift packages.

Here is a list of my favorite choices:

  • Butifarra Sausages
  • Chorizo Picante Sausages
  • Sweet Italian Sausages
  • Sliced Soppressatta Salami
  • Wild Fennel Salami
  • Sliced Bresaola
  • Naked Bacon
  • CHF Randall Lineback Ground Beef

Their Naked Bacon and DC Bratwurst (pork) are two of my favorite items. I made a roasted potato leek soup with the bacon as a base flavor and when I grilled up the brats, I got a round of applause from my neighbors. These sausages are perfect sliced or served whole with a side of grilled red cabbage or on a bun for those who prefer the traditional sandwich with a little mustard and/or sauerkraut. I also recommend their Butifarra Sausage that reminded me of my school days in Barcelona, Spain and the many festivals celebrated in Cataluña.

It may be last minute but keep in mind that it’s a season and this gift will be remembered for months to come. Visit the MeatCrafters website for delivery options to make sure this mouth-watering gift box arrives on time for the season, new year or any special occasion.


This next gift idea is not only functional but a ho, ho, ho, hoot. What better conversation piece to get the holiday party started than wrapping on the Grill Kilt. Yes, it looks like a kilt but functions like a prepared warrior of the culinary army.

The Grill Kilt comes in various colors and styles but I believe the most important aspect of the garment are the pockets, hooks and gizmos to hold all necessary utensils — and even a pocket for a cold beverage.

A website titled Personalization Mall has many distinct craft items and gift ideas that can be personalized with monogramming or a name. I discovered this serving platter made with North American lumber measuring 15” x 21” and .75” thick. You can personalize it with 2 lines of text below the grilling design.

You can hardly go wrong with a gift from Williams Sonoma. With consideration to my BBQ theme, I selected their Black-Handled BBQ Tool Set. They are sturdy and made with superior quality so they will last a very long time. Furthermore, this set of 4 utensils comes with a handsome and protective storage case.

Happy holidays from my grill to your entire barbeque!
