BBQ Gifts for the Grillmaster

Whether you have a birthday coming up, or Christmas is right around the corner, this post contains awesome BBQ Gifts for the Grillmaster in your life. We’ve included some of our favorite products to make shopping this season a breeze.

Is your significant other ready to bite the bullet and get a pellet smoker? If so, you can’t go wrong with Camp Chef. Their products are top of the line, and their customer service can’t be beat. I personally cook on a Camp Chef pellet smoker, and wouldn’t dream of using anything else (check out my post on my Backyard BBQ Grill Guide for more info on all my favorite BBQ grills).

Here are my favorite Camp Chef pellet grills right now:

  • Splurge: If you’re looking for the newest pellet grill with WiFi technology, look no further than Camp Chef Woodwind with Wifi. This grill comes complete with WiFi technology that easily connects to your smart phone via the Camp Chef App. You can also purchase the grill that fits your needs with varying price tags from $600.00 to $1,200.00.
  • Save: If the WiFi grill isn’t quite in your budget, the Camp Chef’s SmokePro XT 24 is a cool $500. Even though it’s smaller without WiFi capabilities, you’ll still be able to smoke quite the feast on this guy.


Whether you’re looking for a basic gas grill or you’re a fan of charcoal grill, there are many BBQ gift options out there for you or a family member that won’t break the bank. Weber is my go-to for both charcoal and gas grills, and Home Depot is an awesome place to purchase all your grills this season. Check out these awesome grills to purchase for your significant other (or yourself!) this year.


Totally stumped what to give the grillmaster in your life? Knives are great BBQ gifts to stick under the Christmas tree this season. Whether you’re slicing vegetables or cutting up a slow-cooked brisket, knives are one of the most important tools you can have in your kitchen (and they make an awesome gift for the hard-to-shop-for person on your list).

  • Splurge: These Dalstrong Phantom Series Knives ($399.99) are the best of the best. Splurge and grab the 6-piece block set and you’ll be set to slice and dice anything and everything.
  • Save: Looking for a single good knife to use for all your cutting needs in the kitchen? This Dalstrong Chef Knife ($60) will be the only thing you need. At under $100, it’s well worth the money, and you’ll find yourself (or your pal) using it over and over again.

Current Deals: Use code HEYGRILLHEY at checkout for 10% off your entire purchase!


If you’ve been around Hey Grill Hey for a while, you’ll know that I often recommend cooking to temperature and not to time. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to have a reliable meat thermometer on hand for all your cooking.

ThermoWorks is my favorite company for thermometers. Their products are high quality, and they provide quick readings so you aren’t spending precious time trying to determine the temperature of your meat. They make the perfect gifts for birthdays, holidays, and more, so check out my favorite options below:

  • Splurge: First up, if you’ve got some extra dough to spend, splurge and grab the Signals 4-Channel BBQ Alarm Thermometer ($229). This guy has WiFi and Bluetooth technology to help you easily keep track of all your temps. If you’re looking for something just a smidge cheaper, the ThermoWorks Mk4 ($99) is the perfect thermometer for the serious griller who doesn’t want to break the bank.
  • Save: For a small, yet awesome thermometer (perfect for the beginning griller), the ThermoPop is only $34.00, and will still give you a super fast temperature readout.

Last up, let’s talk MEAT! If you’re wanting to try some fancy meat this year, you’ve gotta try Snake River Farms or Felton Angus Beef. You won’t miss the pre-packaged stuff from your grocer, I promise. They take great care in preparing and shipping their premium cuts of meat for you. And the flavors? They’re out of this world!

  • Splurge: Let’s talk about a little holiday splurge, shall we? Snake River Farms is a family-owned, quality driven farm that produces the most delicious American Wagyu beef.
  • Save: Felton Angus Beef is a quarterly meat subscription that delivers ranch raised beef directly to your door. Our family subscribes to Felton’s club subscription, and their ground beef is some of the best I’ve ever had.
