Gift for a Griller?

Velda Mae | Apr 26, 2007 05:35 AM

I'm making this a Home Cooking post even though it could go in General Chowhounding Topics or Cookware. Here are my questions -

I'm thinking of getting my husband a grilling-themed gift for his birthday and am wondering whether it's possible to do any kind of serious grilling on the small Weber kettle grill, which is what we own, or is the space just too small to create direct and indirect heat? If so, I may abandon this gift idea in favor of something else.

What cookbook, if any, provides the best technique on grilling, meaning how to build a fire, create levels of heat, etc.

I'm thinking of getting a cookbook, a bag of hardwood charcoal, and a six-pack of high quality beer, but am stumped for what else to include. Any thoughts? We generally make our own spice rubs and sauces, but if there's a good one to purchase, I'd like to know about it. Also, I live near a Penzey's, if there are blends there to recommend.
