Ahh... summer's aroma is coming in whiffs through freshly squeezed lemonade, grilled burgers, and sweet corn — just as a reminder that these couple of months are all about spending time outdoors and eating al fresco. Grilling is a big part of the season and no matter whether you're cooking up a vegetable kebab or a pork shoulder, sometimes things can get a little messy.
Not only are there flare ups, but there can be some oil or fat splattering and some serious grill grease coming your way. Or you could just trip and spill something on yourself (happens to the best of us). We know that aprons can be superfluous, but if you're going to have one that protects your clothes, shouldn't it be a fun one? Yes, there are the bizarre and sometimes creepy sayings, but how about taking it one step further and making your apron a functional toolbox? Oh yes, it's possible.
We've gathered up some quirky grilling aprons in case you need some extra grilling-snazz to impress your friends and family (or just want some goofy gifts to get the grilling buffs in your family).
The Buff Guy Apron
Just in case the man in charge of grilling doesn't actually have a desirable 8-pack, this buff guy apron from NakedAprons will guarantee that you or whoever wears this receives some stolen glances. Wo-wee.
The Barbeque Apron from Weber
Weber is already famous for their easy-to-use grills, so it's completely fitting that they've designed an apron that is appropriate for all your grilling needs. In case you're entertaining and accidentally drop your favorite set of tongs, this apron comes with pockets for extra storage. For those who love beer, here's another plus: this apron already comes with a handy bottle opener. Can we say party time?
The Tools Chef Barbeque Apron
We deem this the perfect apron for ultimate grillers. No matter what their grilling needs are, this apron comes with enough room to hold gloves, a spatula, barbeque brush, food thermometer... and a grill. Just kidding, no grill, but this apron also moonlights as a carrying case. For under $20, this apron is really worth it.
The Texas Iron Personalized Apron
What's the use of a grilling apron if it doesn't deflect off the occasional tinys sparks of fire? This leather — yes, you read it, leather — apron will not only protect you during the moments when flames accidentally flare up, it even comes with two deep pockets and easily convertible straps in case you're ever on the go.
Wearing an apron in the kitchen or at a barbecue can make a bold statement and there are many ways to incorporate quirky kitchen attire pieces into a wardrobe.
Some aprons have crazy compartments and pockets that are used to store everything a cook needs right at their finger tips. Other aprons have interesting patterns and designs such as SWAT-inspired aprons. This type of quirky kitchen attire allows for humorous self-expression. For more pretentious cooks, there are aprons that will not only catch food splatter and spills, but that will also repel food.
Then there are aprons that aim to please the culinary master within every chef. These aprons come fully equipped with massive pockets and hooks to hang every utensil and even have built-in oven mitts. There is a suitable style of kitchen attire for every chef and culinary master.
Polynesian BBQ Luau Ribs
Say "aloha" to these Polynesian BBQ Luau Ribs! Whether you use baby back ribs or spare ribs, this tropical barbecue will be fall-off-the-bone tender and coated in sweet, tangy sauce. These can be oven-baked ribs, but this recipe also provides instructions for rice-cooker ribs. Peaches, soy sauce, and ginger all swirl into this mouthwatering barbecue sauce, caramelizing to a picture-perfect glaze. Every barbecue fanatic out there has to try this super-easy Polynesian BBQ Luau Ribs recipe. This quirky, bright rib dinner is a great centerpiece to any meal.

How easy are Blue Apron meals to prepare?
Blue Apron meals are mostly easy to prepare and don't require any fancy cooking training or prolonged kitchen experience. Some more involved recipes take up to 45 minutes but most are between 25 and 35 minutes from start to finish.
I also tested Blue Apron's Super Bowl meal kit recipes which were meant for a group and so some of those took a bit longer such as the chicken bacon ranch flatbread pizza. Others from the Super Bowl spread, including the spinach and artichoke dip and steak lettuce wraps, took less than 25 minutes to whip up.

Butternut Squash and Apple Fattoush
Servings: 4-6 people
Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Cook time: 40-50 minutes
Swap option: Sumac is a commonly used spice across the eastern Mediterranean and traditionally lends its citrusy punch to this salad. Kristen and Peter substituted sumac for lemon zest, salt and pepper.
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
⅛ plus ¾ teaspoon table salt, divided
2 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into ½-inch pieces
3 tablespoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons ground sumac, plus extra for serving
1 apple, cored and cut into ½-inch pieces (preferably a sweeter crisp apple like Pink Lady or Fuji to compliment the bright lemony dressing)
¼ head radicchio, cored and chopped (1 cup)
½ cup chopped fresh parsley
- Adjust oven racks to middle and lowest positions and heat oven to 375°F.
- Using kitchen shears, cut around perimeter of each pita and separate into 2 thin rounds. Cut each round in half. Place pitas smooth side down on wire rack set in rimmed baking sheet. Brush rough side of pitas evenly with 3 tablespoons oil then sprinkle with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper. (Pitas do not need to be uniformly coated with oil.) Bake on middle rack until pitas are crisp and pale golden brown, 10 to 14 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
- Increase oven temperature to 450°F.
- Toss squash with 1 tablespoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Spread in even layer on rimmed baking sheet and roast on bottom rack until tender, 20 to 25 minutes, stirring halfway through. Set aside to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
- Whisk lemon juice, sumac, garlic and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt together in small bowl and let sit for 10 minutes. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in remaining ¼ cup oil.
- Break cooled pitas into ½-inch pieces and place in large bowl. Add roasted squash, apple, radicchio, parsley, and scallions. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss gently to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve, sprinkling individual portions with extra sumac.
All of it comes down to a new way of making memories together — and hopefully something good for dinner!
