They can fire up a feast no matter where they are with this grill-side case of 20 stainless steel utensils. These cool tools have heat-resistant handles and are organized in a convenient traveling case.

With the iGrill Digital Thermometer (BBQ Guys, $80), they can use the iPod touch, iPhone or iPad in the kitchen (or anywhere else) to monitor the meat outside on the grill. With this thermometer, you can also download the iGrill app, which has a grocery list, recipes, grilling tips and more.
