Cranking up the grill and cooking outside is a seasonal pastime many enjoy. There's something special (and very tasty) about meats and foods cooked outdoors. Flavors are different, textures are different, and the grilling experience itself can be festive. If your guy is the grill master in your house, you're likely considering buying him barbecue or grill-related gifts. So for that grilling enthusiast in your life, here are a few unique gifts for guys who like to grill:

1. A Smoker Box

A smoker box allows you to basically turn your barbecue grill into a smoker. Depending on the kind of grill you have, one of these little boxes filled with wood chips can get your outdoor griller started on smoking meats as well as grilling favorites. Some that we'd like to try include this Mr Bar B Stainless Steel Smoker Box or this Charcoal Companion Nonstick Large Size Smoker Box .

2. Wood Chips

Wood chips are a great way to add different flavors to food. And they come in all different varieties from apple to mesquite and many others. We'd love to give these Apple Wood Chips a try or even these Jack Daniel's Wood Smoking Chips! Wood chips can be used with or without a smoker box.

3. A Meat Thermometer

When you are grilling outdoors, sometimes it can be difficult to determine whether your food is cooked thoroughly. One of the best ways to figure out whether your grilled fare is properly cooked is to use a meat thermometer. This Digital Stainless Cooking Thermometer might be a good pick.

4. Shredding Claws

Shredding claws are a wonderful way to tear apart meats to get perfect shredded pork, chicken, or beef. They also work well to make sure any sauces or liquids are mixed through the meat. We would love to give these Meat Shredder Claws a try at our next barbecue.

5. Grilling gloves

Grilling gloves are great because they eliminate the need for the griller to try and move meat with flimsy forks at odd angles. Grilling gloves need to protect the wearer like these BBQ Mitts Heat Resistant Gloves. They are insulated and provide an easy and safe way for grillers to handle hot meats and other foods.

6. Grilling Rubs and Spices

One great way to vary up any barbecue feast is experimenting with different grilling rubs and spices. A seasoned grill rub or a spicy sauce could be just the thing to kick your barbecue feast in an exciting direction. We think this BBQ Bros Ultimate Barbecue Seasoning Set sounds delicious. And we'd also love to try this BBQ Bros Ultimate Barbecue Sauce Set.

A frugal alternative: Give homemade pork rubs and homemade BBQ sauces

7. A Guide for Grilling or Smoking Foods

If your grilling enthusiast is also a reader, he or she may enjoy a great guide on different grilling or smoking techniques. We'll be adding Smoking Meat: The Essential Guide to Real Barbecue to our bookshelf.

Cooking food outdoors is such a great way to enjoy food and friends. Hopefully these tips will give you some unique gift ideas for the guy in your family who loves to grill.
