Serious Grill Masters
Here we’ve got some heavy duty aprons that are for tried and true grillmasters. These aprons will stand the test of time and become family grill heirlooms. Durable and well-made don’t come cheap, so consider these an investment piece.
A true grillmaster knows safety is key to a great barbecue! They can double as chef and patio fire marshall in super cool firefighter-inspired apron! Made of fire-resistant material, this apron features reflective material and two deep front pockets and a waist tie. The reflective trim will take on a slight glow as the sun starts to go down, perfect to help guests find their way to the food.
Wow! This apron has it all! It comes with custom-fitted tools, a bottle opener, leather details and heavy-duty waxed canvas, you can “become the bbq hero you were meant to be.” The custom embroidery adds a really cool professional detail as well. The wearer can look cool while staying clean and maybe even pretend they’re in a BBQ competition.
For the tactical BBQer. This is by far the most extreme BBQ apron we’ve ever seen and it’s a great way to “always be prepared”. Use the pouches to hold tools, spices, small jars of sauce, and maybe a bbq spray bottle. The true master will know what to do with all the space on the back of the apron.
A tactical apron for the beer drinker. You could definitely also use the holsters for seltzer water to stay hydrated on a hot day. Plenty of spots to hold your tools and every flavor of our barbecue sauce. This apron has a great balance of funny/cool/practical that will appeal to most grillmasters.
Women grillers can wear any apron a man can wear, and more. While many aprons are adjustable, women’s aprons tend to run a little smaller, which is great for petite sizes. They also come in more fun colors and shapes. Some days there’s simply nothing more badass than a glam gal cooking up some sick barbecue!
Anthropologie has tons of cute aprons, but we love the cute flowers and beautiful indigo dye on this one. It looks like heavy duty workwear, but brings a little style and flavor. It’s all about flavor, right?
Hedley & Bennett have a cult-like following of chefs, bakers and cooks. This heavy duty apron is fully adjustable to fit exactly how you want, all day. This is a super high quality apron that is cut well enough to be called chic, and more importantly, will be comfortable and stand up to just about anything a grill and chill can throw at it.
Not the sturdiest apron on the list, but the sunniest and most likely to hide a mustard stain. Maybe you want to do a costume change in the middle of the grill and chill and serve everything in this lovely apron? Nothing more badass than doing what you want, when you want.
New to the grill
Those new to the grill may not need or be willing to invest in the heavy duty aprons. It’s a good idea to keep it neutral while learning. We like these aprons because they’re simple enough to protect your clothes while you learn what you need for a great grill apron.
The perfect basic apron! Tie waste, covers your midsection while giving room to move about, and has pockets. The bright red makes it easy to spot the chef and is a power color for staying grounded at the grill. This is also a great starter apron because it’s short— many people don’t need the super long aprons!
Love this super simple, super stylish Ikea apron. The kangaroo pocket keeps things where you ended them, and there’s even a spot to hang the tongs. The colors are calming but will look stylish in a photo, and let’s be honest, we love to instagram out grill and chills.
This apron is so corny it’s cool (and true at BBQs!). We love the color and the flames. One of the great tricks of fashion (and yes, BBQ aprons count as fashion) is that you can draw the idea to wear you want emphasis. If you’re new to grilling and something goes wrong, you’ve already distracted everyone with this amazing apron.
This is a gorgeous apron that is slightly less practical when it comes to spills, but look at it! Don’t you want to entertain your guests in this funky bad boy? Maybe save this for days you’re just using the smoker.
Santa’s gotta grill too! This apron is perfect for a holiday BBQ or, honestly, year round if you happen to be the jolly old guy himself.
