If you're a self-described Meatmaster, spend unhealthy amounts of time around smoking hot coals, and write a blog about it all, you're pretty certain to get an influx of meat and grilling related gifts during the holidays. I'll be the first to tell you there's a lot of loser grilling gifts out there, items that are neither awesome or useful. Luckily with the bad also comes the great, and my friends and family have been pretty right on when it comes to what to get the griller who seemingly has it all. I've put together a short list of things I've gotten and loved, or would love to get—either way they're sure to set your special griller's heart aflame.
17th Street Bar and Grill Pig PackFrom the legend of barbecue, Mike Mills, comes this great gift pack of two bottles of sauce and magic dust that's sure to make your ribs amazingly delicious.
$16 from 17th Street Bar and Grill
Baskets & Squeeze Bottle SetThe Meatwave quickly ditched paper plates for deli baskets early on, and that decision has served us well for over 5 years now. This set of 8 baskets, liners, and 2 condiment bottles makes for a great gift and barbecue entertaining.

Mitten ApronAn apron and oven mitts, finally combined into one! It won't replace a pair of welding gloves for working with hot coals, but this apron has been very useful around the grill to handle those less blazing hot items quickly.

Pizza Grilling SetGrilling pizza has come to be one of the most popular things at the Meatwave and I couldn't encourage everyone enough to try it out. The BBQ Pro Shop has compiled an excellent set to get you started that includes a peel, wheel, and Elizabeth Karmel's Pizza on the Grill.
