Default My BBQ Christmas Gift on a budget.

Gave my wife a limit of 100 dollars for my Xmas gift. She always goes crazy but I'd rather buy the kidos more stuff (cause their stuff is pretty fun to) Anyways, so if you had 100 dollars what is 1 item you would get or would you get a bunch of little things. Also there is a loophole if she wants to combine money with the Grandparents they can go in together and pool there money to get something larger. So really maybe 200-300 tops. Guess I'm looking for two lists. 1 for 100 dollars and under and 1 for over. Thanks guys.

PS I have nothing, I can use anything, I want it all.

Depends what you need, but can't go wrong with a Thermapen.

If you are truly starting with a blank slate (no rubs, no cooker) then definitely get a Weber OTG, thermometer (thermapen or Thermoworks rt600c), and the SM Sampler pack at the minimum. It'll be your best xmas ever.

I wouldn't ask for a thermo pen, but I do agree with the box of cohibas. OR.... Rocky Patel Autum '08 if you can find them. Best resonable price cigar I have found in some time. It is great.

This might be a little conservative but for me it'd probably be half a cord of some good wood or something of that sort.

If you have nothing, don't buy a Thermapen; it's a luxury. You can get a serviceable quick read for under $20, leaving you $80 for other stuff. And evidently, you need stuff.

Do you have nothing at all ? Or you have a Weber kettle or other and want accessories? If you have no smoker them it's:
Weber Kettle or Brinkmann Gourmet( u will have to do a cpl easy mods) or a Big Poppas Drum Kit ($139).

If u have a smoker and need extras then:
ThermoWorks Meat Thermo ($19-$24 Amazon), Good Tongs and Meat Fork, Charcoal Chimney, Cpl of Stainless Steel Pans, Hot Gloves ( maybe Welders gloves), Various Rubs, Grate Brush, Injector Needle...

If you truly have nothing, I would start with a cooker and some charcoal. And some meat. Everything else is a luxury. On a tight budget, I'd go with Craigslist. You should be able to find a decent 22' kettle for $20 and up and that's probably the most versatile piece of equipment you can have. If you're particularly adventurous, ask for parts to make a UDS. Either will get you going on a tight budget.

Merry Christmas and welcome to the BBQ Brethren!
