Grilling gift baskets are a common panacea to the “I don’t really know this person, or they are really hard to shop for” problem. Every single one has a set of barbecue tools, maybe a new lighter, and definitely some barbecue sauce.
That’s all well and good, but most people have a healthy supply of grilling tools as a result. It can be tough to come up with gift ideas for folks that you don’t know all that well.
We’ve solved that problem. This list of 15 grilling gifts are ones that you’ve never heard of before.
Go ahead, put a grilling gift basket together, and include these things that no one has heard of before. Stand out from the crowd.
Plus, you can have a generic gift basket, but one that’s full of things people would actually like to get, because they don’t already have four Himalayan salt blocks.

I first saw these puppies on Shark Tank, and they are pretty nifty, especially if you are serving a crowd. Do you use the “this side of the plate is rare, then medium rare and then this other side is well done” system? It’s kinda crappy. Ditto when it’s spicy foods. Grill charms stick into your meat, so they’re labeled.
Charcoal Grilling Mat
Flare ups! Smoke! Burnt bits! These charcoal mats prevent flare ups by blocking the drips, but they still manage to give you grill lines. No more lost pieces of asparagus, either.
You can even cook an egg on your BBQ using a charcoal grilling mat. Plus, they are flexible and wash up easily under your tap.
Wooden BBQ Scraper
Say goodbye to melting plastic, falling out wire bristles and unknown chemicals being added to your food. Wooden BBQs scrapers are a natural way to clean your BBQ, last much longer and are much better for the environment. As you use them, they develop ridges that perfectly fit your own barbecue.
Have you tried to lift things off of your BBQ with a combination of tongs and a lifter, because they are too heavy? Meat claws help you lift up heavy items and control them while you do so.
Corn Roasting Rack
In case putting cobs directly on the grill is too difficult, this rack helps you cram a whole bunch onto your grill surface, and get them turned over without them rolling back to the way they were before.
Install one of these grill lights onto the handle of your BBQ, for those times that your outdoor lighting is insufficient and you have a hankering for a smokie.
Salt blocks are the latest and greatest in grill top cooking, providing a whole new set of delicious food options.
Salt Block Storage Case
One of the worst parts about grilling accessories is they can be a pain to store, because they often don’t come quite clean. Solve that with a storage case for your new salt block.
Blossoming Onion Grill Rack
Make your very own onion blossoms on the grill with this cutter and grilling rack.
“Who needs six s’mores at once??!” Evidently some folks do. Are you the folks that need six at once? This would be a fun way to make enough to serve at a dinner party.
BBQ Accessories Stand Post
Do you run out of space next to your grill? Add this C-clamp stand and have paper towel, tools and whatever else you need right at your fingertips, without running out of space for plates.
Steak Branding Irons
Brand your cow twice! Add a touch of personalization to your meat with a custom steak branding iron.
Light Saber Light-Up BBQ Tongs
Sure, there are light up barbecue tongs available, but have you seen light saber light up barbecue tongs before?
Hexagon Burger Press
Dairy Queen makes flower shaped burgers, you can make hexagon shaped burgers! Better than making burgers one by one, this press lets you make eight in one go. Plus, you can freeze them in the mold and then put them into a ziplock bag, without having to place sheets between each patty.
Steam Cleaning BBQ Brush
Evidently the grill is not the land of no power tools. This device is designed to steam clean your grates! Get them shiny and clean with this puppy.
