So long as you’ve got clothes on, it doesn’t really matter what you wear when you’re grilling. But if you’d like to lessen the chances that you get grease, bbq sauce, lighter fluid, or hot tears all over your clothes, an apron can come in handy. Aprons with “hilarious” sayings on them like Kiss the Cook are about as cool as bumper stickers and posters with “hilarious” sayings on them. (Except for bumper stickers that say, “How’s my driving? Call 1-800-EAT-SHIT.” Somehow those are always funny.) And that’s why we love Grillin’ Villain aprons. They’re not necessarily funny, but they’re cool. That’s right. They’re cool aprons.
Grillin’ Villain aprons cost between $40 and $150, and make you look sorta like all sorts of different characters — Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Joker, Riddler, Two-Face, Penguin, Deadpool, a Stormtrooper, Ursula from The Little Mermaid. Yeah, you’re goddamned right we’d wear an Ursula apron.
Each apron is made to order, so it’ll take a few weeks to get yours. If you want one for your annual Memorial Day or July 4 BBQ, you’d better get on it.
