We Americans love our outdoor cooking! The Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (don’t laugh, it’s an actual real thing) says that eighty-six percent of households own an outdoor barbecue, grill or smoker, and the majority of grill owners (62%) use their grills year-round. Heck, fifteen percent of Americans even grilled their Thanksgiving meal outdoors in 2013. That’s some pretty serious dedication to the art of the grill.
We also know, thanks to the HPBA, that the typical barbecue chef is pretty knowledgeable about what to cook and how to cook it. Whether male or female, the primary grillers in seven out of ten households consider themselves to be “extremely proficient” or “better than average.”
If you want to win the heart (or at least the grudging respect) of that grilling gourmand, you’re going to have to give them a gift that respects the “better than average” depth and breadth of their BBQ knowledge.
