Barbecue aprons typically are all about novelty and most of them big up or send up the man who’s doing the cooking. Of course you can get plain BBQ aprons if you want to convey the more professional look.
Maybe you don't......but your Dad does! Because of the novelty value the main market is as a gift for a birthday or Father’s Day for example and if you buy over the internet then they’re not expensive either.
There used to be a number of stores that I could recommend but now the only one on-line is Amazon.com and it has a large range with BBQ grill manufacturers aprons too.
For the nutty pitmaster I've put below a selection of pictures to give you some examples of the sort of things available and the level of humor. So if that’s tickled your chuckle button then what better way to surprise the man in your life than with a novelty apron and some personalized
On a serious note, bbq aprons are actually a good idea and there are a couple of points to consider:-
I know what you're thinking, put it over your head and tie the waist ties around the middle...and you'd be right. But that isn't the neatest way to wear your apron, especially if you have a novelty one.
Once properly adjusted for your height, fix the apron around your waist first and let the top half hang down in front of you. Tie the waist ties where convenient and now lift the top half and put it over your head.
Do it this way and you now have the front of your apron on display and not scrunched up by the waist ties.
I have to say that whilst I understand the humour it really does
highlight how often it’s a role reversal when it comes to barbecuing. It
always seems to be the man who does the cooking and I guess in most
cases he’s the least experienced chef in the family. But then again, if
you get stuck lads, you can always shoot me a question and I'll do my best to answer it.
