BBQ Sample Days

I have to tell you this is a great way to get to try a lot of fun BBQèd items. If you live in Ontario Buster Rhinos BBQ this year is doing multiples of BBQ Sample days. This would make an excellent gift.

Artisan Steak Tasting from The Oliver Ranch Company

This is the gift that just keeps on giving. I love red meat. Ok I love meat period but earlier this year I got the opportunity to sit down to an Artisan Steak Tasting with Carrie Oliver CEO of the Oliver Ranch Company. It is fascinating and quite tasty to try different steaks of this caliber. From their website:

Choose your favorite cut and we’ll send you steaks from 4 different natural or organic ranches, each specializing in a different breed, diet, geography, & aging technique. We’ll also send you our Artisan Beef Institute™ tasting guide and tips for hosting an Artisan Steak Tasting in your home.

Weber Rapid Fire Chimney Starter  Basques All Natural Lump Charcoal »Weber Cubes

These three are among some of the easiest and most durable items I use. I have tried many chimney starters over the past few years and by far the Weber is the most durable and easiest to use. My charcoal of Choice is Basques all Natural Lump charcoal made from Sugar Maple trees. The easiest lighting is made simple by using weber cubes and all of these can be purchased together for less than $100.00

Montana Grills Crosscut Grilling Planks

I like using these planks a lot. I find they give much more flavor to the food you are eating versus a traditionally cut plank. Inexpensive to use they also can be used as serving platters for a rustic themed BBQ dinner.

BBQ Books

BBQ books are some of my favorite things to read and this past year my library certainly expanded as well I went back to some tried and true books that I am still working through.  Plus others I just enjoyed this year about food in general …Here are some of my favs :

BBQ Chips, Pellets, and wood Dusts.

This one is a really big favorite of mine.  Four years ago my Mom for Christmas went to a BBQ store and bought one of every single type of wood chip, wood dust, and BBQ pellets (sample packs) the store had. It was the gift that kept on giving. I loved trying each of the different woods and experimenting with different flavor profiles for smoke. With all of the different brands on the market this is a really fun way to give a gift that can provide a whole lot of fun.  Please note if you are shipping wood products they must adhere to all regulations in regards to the transportation of wood across state lines and provinces/ Countries.  Here are just a few manufacturers of woods and pellets I use and play with:

Traeger Canada

Smokinlicious

BBQr’s Delight

Weber
