Barbecue and grilling season is upon us, and Father's Day will be here sooner than you think. And with this being an election year, a political-party steak branding iron is guaranteed to get the conversation started around the grill and keep it going at the dinner table. Let your guests declare their allegiance to the Grand Old Party with the Republican Elephant steak branding iron, or to the Democratic cause with the Democratic Donkey steak branding iron. (Sorry, Libertarians, we haven't found a steak branding iron for you yet.) Both styles of political branding irons feature a 14" long metal shaft with a solid wood handle to add a touch of elegance and of course to allow you to handle them safely. And they're also proudly made in the USA. In addition to being a great Father's Day gift for the politically-savvy steak-loving Dad, they also make great Christmas stocking stuffers and birthday gifts.
For those who prefer to steer clear of controversy when cooking steer, we also now offer personalized steak branding irons, custom-designed with your choice of up to three letters. Finely crafted in the USA and featuring superior workmanship, the letters are made from "HeatBacker" stainless steel for a clear, uniform "professional-quality" brand every time. The letters are expertly welded onto a 14" long metal shaft that is capped with a stylish lacquered wooden handle and finished with a leather loop for hanging at your grill or on a hook when not in use. The personalized branding iron comes in a cedar box that's been branded with the enclosed brand, for a one-of-a-kind, elegant presentation when given as a gift.
Another excellent--and practical--choice is the three-sided Rare, Medium, and Well Steak Branding Iron to help identify how each steak is cooked, and thus avoid potential controversy and disappointment when dinner is served. By branding each steak as it cooks, the barbecue chef will know at a glance how long to cook each steak. And when the serving platter is brought to the table, guests will be able to select a steak cooked to their desired level of doneness simply by looking at the brand on each steak. Made of steel with a wooden handle and leather hanging strap, this branding iron measures 15 1/2" in length and features a unique 3-sided "head" bearing the letters R, M and W (one on each side) for 3-in-1 convenience at the grill. It also arrives gift-boxed, so you don't even need to worry about finding the right-sized box for this useful and thoughtful gift. If you or someone you know enjoys grilling up steaks for friends or family, this is one tool you and they need!
Steak branding irons make memorable Father's Day gifts for any Dad who loves to barbecue or grill steaks. There's no reason you shouldn't treat yourself to one or two of these as well.
