We all know that one person who can’t go a season without grilling up their favorite flame-kissed meal in the backyard. The only problem at holiday time is finding a handy accessory or tool they don’t already own. But don’t worry—that’s where we come in!

BBQ Gloves and Meat Claws Set

If that griller in your life doesn’t yet own a pair of meat claws, now’s the time to introduce him or her to these handy tools. There’s no better way to pull apart beef, chicken, or pork than with these unbeatably convenient meat shredders.

This set also includes an instant-read thermometer to ensure everything is cooked to the desired degree of doneness. It also comes with a pair of heat-resistant gloves for easy handling without burning precious fingers.

The powerful magnetic bases mean no tricky installation—your friend can simply pop these wherever she needs them. Best of all, the flexible goosenecks mean she can shine that light in any direction.

Keep the heat out of the kitchen with this rotisserie kit. Fit for any grill, your recipient will love slow roasting pork, turkey, or a whole chicken any time with this powerful motor.

A basting brush is a must-have for any grilling pro, but this brush and saucepot combo set takes things to another level. The canister holds up to 16 ounces of sauce, perfect for even the largest cuts of meat.

Your recipient will also never have to worry about where to set his messy brush again, as this one fits snuggly over the pot. The brush is also safely secure from flies trying to land in that sticky-sweet sauce.

Say goodbye to burnt wooden skewers and hello to reusable stainless-steel shish kebob sticks! These skewers are heat-proof, rust-resistant, and come with a convenient storage pouch.

Beer Can Chicken Roasters

If the rotisserie kit we included above is a bit extra for the grilling enthusiast in your life, this wire rack roaster is the runner-up. They’ll love serving up the tastiest, tenderest chicken their guests have ever had.

The roaster cooks a whole chicken upright and your recipient can use his or her favorite can of beer for a steam session. As a bonus, when you cook a chicken upright, it means the breast is farther from the heat source, so you can avoid a totally dry bird.
