Upgrade Dad’s grill with grates that last for life. Recommended for years by the BBQ Bible team and steak cookoff champions, GrillGrates are an improved grilling surface that deliver the best, juiciest food and restaurant-quality sear marks. Made of hard anodized aluminum, GrillGrates are virtually nonstick and super heat conductive. Flip them over for an instant griddle, or keep them rails up for great sear marks. On all grill types from gas to charcoal to pellet, you’ll get reduced flare-ups (no more charring or flames!), faster cook times with even heating, and flavorful food that sizzles in its juices.
Best of Barbecue Suede Grill Gloves
If you can’t stand the heat… pull on the 18” leather Steven Raichlen Best of Barbecue Extra Long Suede Grilling Gloves! Whether you’re handling a chimney starter full of hot coals or wielding that spatula at flip time, when you need protection from the heat of your grill, reach for the grill gloves that Steve Raichlen designed especially for outdoor cooking enthusiasts. Soft and pliable for a comfortable fit and easy grasp, gloves providing far more dexterity than an indoor kitchen oven mitt.
The HexClad 12″ Pan is ideal when you’re cooking for a crowd. When it’s time for a family dinner or a group of friends for brunch, this spacious pan can handle the job. Whip up a frittata or easily cook two steaks at a time. Cook up at least four salmon fillets with room for veggies. There’s no stopping your culinary prowess with a pan that offers so many possibilities.
Planet Barbecue® Meats
Steven Raichlen’s Planet BBQ offers a convenient solution for quick and delicious dinners with their smokehouse favorites. These expertly crafted dishes, including Texas-Style Brisket, hickory-infused Duroc Pork Ribs, Dry Aged 28 Day Burgers, and Smoked Brisket Sausages, are fully prepared and just need to be heated and enjoyed. The meat used in these BBQ classics comes from a network of family farms in the US, prioritizing superior Black Angus and Duroc genetics, excellent livestock management practices, and high-quality feeding. Black Angus cattle graze on lush midwestern pastures and are finished on corn-based feed to enhance tenderness and flavor, while Duroc hogs are raised humanely without crates, fed a vegetarian diet, and are free from hormones or antibiotics.
Bacon Up® the griddle! Bacon Up® the skillet! Bacon Up® those steaks!
Dad will LOVE the richer, more complex flavor of cooking with bacon grease — and now it’s easy to always have some on hand. Bacon Up® is authentic bacon grease, triple-filtered for purity, and shelf stable. With a high smoke point, it’s perfect on a griddle, for cast iron cooking/conditioning, as a binder, or to fry in. Great taste, NO trans-fat, and NOT hydrogenated – it’s a winner! Available online and in 8500+ stores nationwide.
Best of Barbecue Ultimate Chimney Charcoal Starter
The Ultimate Chimney Starter is one of the largest chimney starters on the market. The square corners give you extra control when distributing the hot embers and the two handles provide stability while pouring the coals into your grill. Environmentally safe chimney starter lights a charcoal grill quickly and easily without lighter fluid. Food tastes better and the charcoal lighter fluid odor doesn’t permeate your picnic–or the environment. To use the chimney starter, stuff sheets of newspaper in its bottom chamber and fill the top chamber with charcoal. After lighting the paper through one of the perforated holes in the starter’s bottom, it takes 20 minutes or so for the coals to heat up to the proper temperature. Simply pour them into the basin of your charcoal grill and you’re ready to barbecue.
The FlavrQ system allows gas grill users to enjoy the charcoal flavor achievable only by charcoal grill users — until now. The #1 must-have gas grill accessory consists of the FlavrQ grid and all-natural, chemical-free ChipCharwood. The FlavrQ grid installs into your gas grill in seconds, with no tools required. FlavrQ ChipCharwood is easy-to-use, imparting an authentic wood flavor that makes food taste better, naturally. It heats faster and hotter than cooking with gas alone, so your food is also juicier. The high heat leaves very little ash to clean up, making for a tasty and convenient grilling experience from start to finish. Add FlavrQ to your gas barbecue grill and add that natural, wood charcoal flavor to everything you cook!
Crowd Cow offers cuts from over 40 different farms to create a box full of Dad’s favorites, or select a curated gift box of their best sellers. They boast a variety of A4 and A5 wagyu beef from acclaimed Japanese farms, including the world’s rarest steak, Olive A5 Wagyu. They’re also the exclusive retailer for Steven Raichlen’s Planet Barbecue products!
Crowd Cow’s high-quality, extensive selection means you’re guaranteed to find an option to please any carnivore dad. Overwhelmed by the selection? Opt for a Crowd Cow gift card so Dad can assemble the perfect box for himself.
