Are you searching for the best housewarming, birthday or Father’s Day gifts for meat lovers? Holidays, summer gatherings, tailgating parties and beachfront barbecues are just a few of the reasons to fire up the grill or stove. Whether the carnivore on your list enjoys sizzling slabs of sirloin, ribeye and T-bone or lean cuts of chicken, turkey and venison, we’ve got you covered with excellent ideas.

To get started, think about the types of meat they like as well as preferred prep and cooking methods. Take a peek into their kitchen or grill gear stash to see what they already have and what might need to be replaced or added to. Consider cooking methods such as broiling, braising and sautéing or roasting, rotisserie and searing. Sous vide is another up-and-coming method of cooking tender, nutritious and flavorful meat recipes.
