Below are the Top 5 Birthday Gift Ideas for your Favorite Griller that I picked from the great list of BBQ products I’ve had the opportunity to review here at BBQ Sauce Reviews. I feel these products would make for a fantastic birthday gift for any griller. (This list is in no particular order…click on the product name to see its full review.)

1. Splash-Proof Super-Fast Thermapen

The Thermapen is one of the fastest, most accurate thermometers on the market today (reads internal temperatures in mere seconds). It’s a thermometer that’s extremely popular for use by backyard grillers all the way up to competition BBQ teams. Thermapens come in a vast variety of colors. As you can see in the picture above, a person can never own too many Thermapens!

2. Maverick ET-732 Wireless Barbecue Thermometer Set

The Maverick ET-732 is a barbecue thermometer set that comes with 2 thermometer probes. One probe monitors the food temperature and the other is an ambient temperature probe which monitors the smoker or grill temperature. Both probe wires are heat-resistant to 716 degrees. The wireless receiver that comes in this set allows you to monitor both probe temperatures from an impressive distance of up to 300 feet away. The Maverick ET-732 is one of the best-selling barbecue thermometer sets on the market today.

3. Smokenator 1000

The Smokenator 1000 is an 18 gauge stainless steel insert that fits in the lower part of a 22.5″ Weber kettle grill and transforms it into a smoker. The Smokenator contains the hot charcoal while channeling the heat upward and shields food from the direct heat. The chamber of the Smokenator holds enough briquettes for about a 6 hour cook at 230° F at the dome.

The Smokenator also makes it so the food is cooked by convection and gentle radiation through the 18 gage stainless shield. A water pan rests on top of the charcoal which is the most efficient way to fill the kettle with high humidity. This humidity keeps food moist and helps to keep the temperature lower and more controllable. This also helps to ensure a nice deep smoke ring penetration.

4. Cook-Air (Tailgating Grill)

The Cook-Air grill is a portable wood burning grill constructed of 304 stainless steel and weighs in at 17 lbs. The base of the grill always stays cool, so the entire unit can be set on a tabletop without worry of damage to it. The Cook-Air Grill runs on a combination of wood fire and a five-speed electric fan which helps to accelerate the fire in the combustion chamber so the grill reaches temperatures of up to 1100 °F (Great for searing meat).

Items included in the Cook-Air starter kit are a cleaning brush, tongs, 120-volt electrical adapter, 12-volt car adapter, cooking grid handle, a retractable warming rack, a carry bag, as well as a bag of wood pucks and a fire starter pack. The wood pucks that are included are made of 100% natural non-resinous wood and the fire starters are made of 100% natural, biodegradable, waterproof strips.

5. Grill Plate from Grill Innovations

The Grill Plate is an all aluminum cooking plate designed to allow you to bake foods on your gas grill or even a pellet grill. It basically turns your grill into a convection oven. The Grill Plate is 16 inches by 12 inches and is 1 inch thick.

The bottom of the Grill Plate has a V-shaped angle which directs the heat to the ends of the plate. As the heat rises from the grill, the two heat forces collide, causing a convection process due to the rising force of heat. In the center of the plate, a 1 inch air gap provides insulation to prevent burning the bottom of the dish you’re baking. This process allows you to bake cookies, cinnamon rolls, cakes, pies, lasagna; pretty much anything you can bake in your oven.

You can buy the Grill Plate on the manufacturer’s website here.
