Not to ruin the surprise, but this is what my brother-in-law is getting for Christmas. He's likes to spend time cooking on the back porch, so this steel grill fry pan is perfect for him.
The recommendation came from Joe, who says to put it with some smoked salt and then you have a perfect present. The pan works for your gas or charcoal grill, and it's a great little accessory whether you're preparing meat or vegetables. It's versatile -- you can use it with our without the handle. And the design is great because you don't have to worry about little pieces of food falling through the holes. Phew. In laws are hard to shop for. [Williams-Sonoma]
