Ask any handyman and they’ll tell you that the key to getting a job done is having the right tools at your disposal. Ask any grill master the secret to how they earned that illustrious title and they’ll tell you the same thing. For those who enjoy grilling, the journey is just as rewarding as the end product. The hours spent honing your craft in front of that hot flame teaches you that there’s a grilling accessory for just about anything you could imagine. And as we approach the holidays, nothing brings out that true seasonal spirit more than gifting the chef in your family the grilling tools they need to whip up something delicious for the whole house to enjoy.
With 2020 bringing plenty of change, trade in the usual stocking stuffers for these unique and necessary “grill stuffers.” Whether you’re looking for a last-minute gift or a statement piece for the grill master in your family, you can’t go wrong with one of these incredible grilling accessories!
To be a true grill master, you have to look the part. However, these Leather Insulated Barbecue Gloves aren’t made solely for style. Designed with your safety in mind, these gloves protect you from the hot temperatures of your grill and much more. Because they’re long enough to reach nearly the middle of your forearm, these gloves are also the perfect accessory for those adding wood to a campfire or handling any hot items that come straight off your grill. Made of a soft and pliable leather material, it makes grasping wood, tongs, or any other grilling utensils a breeze. If you’re not sure which way to go for an easy “grill stuffer,” you can’t go wrong with a pair of these fantastic and durable gloves.
2. Meat Presses
The signature food every grill master is judged by is the classic hamburger. You can’t call yourself an expert in front of the grill without having a burger recipe, and more importantly, a burger technique down pat. Lucky for you, we have two grilling accessories that will help you make the perfect patty. Our Blue Rhino Cast Iron Press and the Blue Rhino Smash-A-Burger Griddle Press cut down the grilling time on your burgers, while also eliminating any fears of unevenly cooked meat. The cast iron press is durable and versatile, allowing you to use it on both grills and griddles alike. The Smash-A-Burger Press, which makes you feel like you’re holding the cast iron press’s little sibling, works just as well on veggie burgers and fish cakes as it does on ground meat. Because the surface of the griddle press is flat, it has the added advantage of cutting down that stickiness you’re accustomed to when using other uneven surfaces. Trust us when we say you’ll see a noticeable difference in your patties when you put these two to the test!
Take your cookout to the next level with this Non-stick Grilling Skillet! Traditionally, skillets are used for frying, searing, and browning foods in order to give them a better taste and color. This skillet, however, has one not-so-hidden trick up its sleeve. As the name would lead you to believe, the non-stick feature of this skillet is a game-changer. Grilling those small, delicate foods like vegetables, and many types of seafood, becomes a breeze thanks to the surface of this skillet. Slightly deeper than most frying pans, the skillet also offers you the opportunity to pack more food in there when you need to serve those hungry family members over the holidays. Lastly, beyond the non-stick coating, the biggest benefit for some might be the skillet’s removable handle. Yes, you read that right! Take the handle off the skillet when you need to close the lid of your grill, and you won’t have to worry about any heat escaping during the cooking process. Seriously, what can’t this thing do?
When it comes to grilling, flavor is the name of the game. You don’t get delicious chicken wings, ribs, or even vegetables without a little added flavor in the form of sauces and seasonings. But what happens when you don’t make enough sauce to properly coat the food that’s on your grill? Too many trips back and forth from the grill to the kitchen can get tiring quickly, but there’s an easy fix for that problem. The Blue Rhino Silicone Brush Basting Bottle with Storage Cap is the two-in-one brush and sauce bottle every grill master deserves. Simply fill the bottle with your favorite homemade or store-bought sauce, squeeze it onto your food and let the brush work its magic. Made with silicone bristles, the brush remains heat resistant in even the highest of grilling temperatures, avoiding any staining or deformation. The most convenient part of this gadget might actually be when the grilling process is complete. Because it comes with a storage cap, you don’t have to waste any of your leftover sauce. Simply twist the cap on, toss the bottle in your fridge, and pull it back out the next time you fire up the grill. You never thought you’d need this invention until now!
Okay, so you can’t technically stuff this in a normal-sized stocking, but the Blue Rhino Razor Portable LP Gas Griddle is the perfect cooking accessory for those days when you just don’t need your big grill. Perfect for when you’re on the go, or with outdoor cooking and dining such a big phenomenon this year, it’s great for those small gatherings with the immediate family. So what’s unique about a griddle, especially one this size? For starters, it’s equipped with high-quality features, such as a large stainless-steel burner and push and turn ignition. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how this small griddle packs a mighty punch. Coming in at a total of 18000-BTUs of power, the Razor Griddle heats up quickly, cooks your food thoroughly, and offers the convenience you may not get with your larger, less-mobile grill. Assembly of the griddle takes only a few steps and we offer plenty of tips and tricks on how to keep it in top condition for years to come!
