The key to great grilling is having the right tools for the job. While a gas grill is great for convenience, nothing beats the flavor of a well-prepared piece of meat on a charcoal grill with the perfect balance of smoky char and sweet glaze.

Charcoal grills are the most popular type of grill on the market because of their ability to generate high heat and the great smoky flavor they burn into meat.

Unlike traditional charcoal grills that use lighter fluid, these charcoal grills use electricity to ignite the charcoal and extra airflow to sustain the heat. All you need to do is dump the charcoal into the grill, light it up, wait for the charcoal to darken, and toss on your favorite marinade and meat.

1. Victorinox Fibrox Pro Chef's Knife

Our rating: 9 / 10

Victorinox Fibrox Pro Chef's Knife

Check Price on Amazon

“This knife is an absolute joy to use. Shun may have been the first to market with a VG-10 full-tang Japanese knife, but Victorinox gets the balance of performance and value absolutely perfect. The durable, slip-resistant Fibrox handle works perfectly in hand and provides a comfortable and well-balanced grip. The cutting blade is like a heated laser. It cuts through meats and vegetables like warm butter.”

“The biggest drawback with Victorinox ‘s Fibrox line is the lack of a cutting board. You can, of course, work around this by using the proper cutting board, but it’s still a pain to have to remember to bring one along every time you plan on using your knife.”

“The only other drawback I can think of is the need for regular maintenance. It’s a little more involved than with other, non-serrated knives, but the difference in cutting quality is well worth it.”

What to get someone who likes to smoke meat?

What should I get my grill master?

If your grill master loves to barbecue, the best gift you can get him is a year’s supply of cuts of meat. Prices may vary by region so call a few local butchers and ask for their best price on a year’s supply of various cuts of meat including chicken, rib-eye, brisket, etc.

Just as a word of caution bring a notepad with you when visiting butchers and write down the prices on which you bargain. You don’t want to take a printout of the higher price and try to get them to go down on the price. The printout should be for reference—and you should go down in price.
