What Goes With Great Meat? Great Beer
Buying your barbeque loving man some beer will surely put a smile on his face. Often, steaks, ribs, and chops are amazing, but he will need something to wash those flavors down with. Rich beers are often matched nicely with rich-tasting food, so try getting him a European beer, because they are often more flavorful than many of the North American brands (though there are some from this continent that are also packed with flavor). A variety pack is a nice way to accompany the man's barbeque.
Get Him a Barbeque Cookbook
Barbequing can be an art for many men, and that involves making the perfect sauce. Many men are very secretive about what they put in the steak sauce, and one of the ways they get to the point of obsession is by finding a great recipe in a cookbook and making it their own. This is an opportunity to introduce him to a variety of recipes, and allow him to find just the right one. The best part is that you might be able to taste test the food that he makes.
A Meat Thermometer Could Save His Life, and Yours
Some men might think that they can just judge whether the meat is ready by looking at it. But even celebrity chefs know that a good meat thermometer is a great option to ensure that the meat is cooked without having to open it up and lose many of its juices. After all, the technique behind cooking some of the best barbeque recipes involves flipping the meat over only once, and also ensuring that all the juices are packed in to the meat so that it remains tender and does not dry out. A meat thermometer could be just the way to cook the meat to perfection. It’s also part of the "cool gifts for guys" list. Finding the right gift could also benefit you. It is great to know a barbeque loving man, and if you buy him the right gift, you will likely get him on your good side. Once you have secured that spot, you will likely be the benefactor of many delicious barbeques. After all, your barbeque loving man won't likely want to experience his new sauce, cooked to perfection thanks to the new thermometer, alone. And the perfect way to wash down that meat is drinking a great beer beside the person who encourages his passion for barbequing: you.
