Best Gifts for Those Who Love Outdoor Cooking

Last Updated on November 27, 2023

Eating outdoors is a great way to spend time with friends and family, and we’re grateful to all the grill masters who make the experience possible. If you’d like to show your appreciation for the great outdoor cook of your tribe, here are some inspiring outdoor cooking equipment that’ll encourage them on their outdoor cooking journey.

Dutch Oven

Dutch ovens are versatile and multipurpose cookware you can use in the comfort of your home, over a campfire, or in a wood-burning outdoor oven. 

It’s a great gift for bakers because this cookware unlocks pies, quiches, and bread cooked right in the wood-burning oven or open fire. Since it’ll be used over flames, look for one entirely made of cast iron rather than ceramic.

Instant Meat Thermometer

Roasting outdoors is an art form, and it leads to delicious artwork! An instant meat thermometer can ensure the food reaches a safe temperature for consumption and help the chef track when the meat is rare, medium rare, medium well, and well cooked. Gifting your favorite chef a meat thermometer is a win-win situation if you love a juicy steak.

Outdoor Pizza Oven

Fact: Everyone loves pizza. It’s not only delicious but also something we all love to get together around. Who can say no to an outdoor Italian pizza party? To make that happen, all your favorite chef needs is an outdoor pizza oven. 

No, you don’t need to build a stone oven for your friend. Portable outdoor pizza ovens provide a controlled heat environment, cooking your pizzas to perfection whenever you crave some Italian breeze. Just place your dough in it over a pizza stone or griddle, and enjoy your restaurant-quality pizza.

Pizza Oven Hardwood

A box of hardwood, like this box of Smoak red oak cooking wood, that has been dried properly is what every outdoor pizza chef needs. 

Not only do they emit less smoke and last longer, but aromatic woods such as cherry, apple, almond, maple, chestnut, apricot, or hickory can significantly enhance the dish’s flavor. Just lay them over some wood chips and enjoy the aromatics filling the fresh air and your food.

Heat Resistant Gloves

A pair of heat-resistant gloves is one of the most needed grill tools, as it usually means dealing with direct fire.

Don’t confuse these gloves with regular oven mitts; a good pair of barbeque gloves allows you to handle hot grills and charcoal without looking like you’re performing a pantomime show. With heat-resistant gloves, like these Comsmart BBQ gloves, you can maneuver gracefully over a flat-top grill, barbecue, or even open fire.

Mortar and Pestle

When you’re shopping for an outdoor cook, it’s easy to limit yourself to items like grill equipment and outdoor gear. However, a good rub or marinade made with freshly ground spice mix can be a game changer in barbequing.

That’s why we suggest you try KROK, a brand that makes beautiful authentic granite Thai mortar and pestles. It’s a unique gift that will help your chef take their barbeque ribs to the next level.

Cooler Box

Sometimes the best way to remind your favorite barbecue master you love them is to crack open a cold beer for them to enjoy. Whether it’s a barbeque party in the backyard or a picnic at the park, a cooler box is a must-have to keep beverages, salads, and meats cold until you need them. Your beloved chef is guaranteed to thank you every time you save them from a trip to the kitchen for a cold bottle of beer.

Backyard Party Game

This is where we start thinking outside the box. A well-prepared feast with family and friends is a way to create priceless memories. You can get a backyard party game, such as mini cornhole, a bocce ball set, or a Kan Jam disc toss to enjoy with everyone. This way, you can keep the kids from burying their heads in the tablets and create memories together. 

Grill Lights

Lighting up the workstation, especially if you’re cooking on the outdoor grills, ensures top-quality meals. A set of lights on the gas grill can save the day — or night. Sometimes the porch lights can be insufficient, and the headlights might dazzle others when the cook is in a chatty mood, but grill lights, like RVZHI Grill Light, are the ultimate solution for those who like to grill after sunset. 

A Campfire Cooking Kit

Cooking outdoors doesn’t always mean lighting up a barbecue. Sometimes outdoors is wherever your feet take you. And what’s better than a plate of hot comfort food after a long hike? A campfire cooking kit lets you prepare a hot meal anywhere off the grid. Outdoor cooking supplies are typically made of lightweight, robust materials that are easy to carry and prepare food in and would make the perfect gift for an outdoor enthusiast. 

Basket of Assorted Spices and Rubs

Preparing a delicious rub is part of outdoor cooking. And what does the perfect rub consist of? The right recipe and fresh ingredients. You can get whole spices and condiments for your outdoor cook to experiment with and adorn a basket with readymade sauces, rubs, and whole spices!

Getting them whole spices is a good idea because they stay fresh for a long time and are always helpful to have around. But if you don’t want to give them more tasks than they already have, ready-made rubs and spice mixes can also make them level up their grilling game.

Over and Out!

Cooking away from the comfort of one’s kitchen and usual equipment can ignite a chef’s creativity.  Here, we put together inspiring gift ideas so you can thank your favorite outdoor cook for their work and encourage them to continue developing their outdoor cooking skills.
