Any other ideas for BBQ enthusiasts?

Though a great-quality tool set or heat-resistant gloves may be the obvious choice for your BBQ-loving friend, there are other things to consider before you buy the best BBQ gifts. Another thoughtful option might be a gift card to a local butcher shop or a speciality store that sells premium cuts of meat for their BBQ adventures. Maybe make some gourmet barbecue sauces, rubs, or marinades at home to enhance their grilling experience.

We love BBC Good Food's BBQ Sauce Recipe, which is easy to make and bottle up for your loved one.
