My Dads birthday is coming up and I'm trying to think of some giift ideas. He's the hardest guy to buy for because anything he wants he goes and gets himself. But he doesn't get online so I thought I could get him something/things that he doesn't have access to. We've both gotten really big in smoked meat and have both gotten us a pull behind smoker. So I think somethink BBQ would be perfect.
I can't go to crazy on price,probably around $50 or so. Budgets tight,plus I gotta match the amount for the father in laws bday Sad. One thing I think I may get is the bear claw for pulling meat. I'm sure he's never seen one and may put one of those to use. Any other suggestions on BBQ items you guys really can't live without or that are just nice to have around?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks

Along with the claws, you could assemble a whole Q'ing care package. Add in some long SS tongs, insulated gloves, a new chimney, grill brush, apron, etc, and you could still stay under $50.

As for the FIL, you're on your own Wink

Cheers!

Bear Paws for sure. Not just great for pulling, they are fantastic for moving hunks of meat around on the grill and pulling cans out of chickens' butts.

If you are looking for GREAT rubs, Big Ron's are great. I also have another suggestion, fryer gloves. We can grab anything out of the pit with these and not burn our hands!

My first thought was a big pile of Ron's rubs, but that has been covered...Bear claws a good idea as the rest of the stuff mentioned. Peace Love and BBQ? Different kinds of smoking wood? Cast iron? Cutlery? New therm's? BBQ log book? Grandkid to be a bbq buddy? The last one will cost well over $50, but worth it!
