Featured Grilling Gifts for Dad

  • We’ll come right out and say it: we’ve got a soft spot in our heart for all the dads out there. Sure, they might be our largest demographic (not exactly a trade secret for a grill retailer), but there’s just something right about seeing Dad, a beer in his hand and a bad joke surely on his lips, manning the grill in all his glory. It’s only right for us to do what we can to give back to fathers everywhere — or rather, help you help him do what he does best.

    In fact, we’ve been helping people like you find the right BBQ gifts for Dad since 1998, and now we’re proud to unveil our BBQGuys staff picks for fathers who love to grill. Our expert selections are based on quality, performance, features, and a general understanding of what dads like; many of us have extensive experience on that last point! From our favorite grills of all types and top-rated BBQ tools to must-have outdoor kitchen components and everything in between, these are the BBQ gifts that’ll knock Dad’s socks off. You know the ones we’re talking about: knee-height, cotton-white, and not a trace of irony in sight.

  • Blaze Professional LUX 3-Burner Propane Gas Grill

    Simply put, this is our pick for the best propane grill, period. Not just for Dad — though he’ll definitely appreciate it — but for anyone, anywhere who wants an all-around powerhouse grill. And, let’s be honest, hasn’t your old man spent too much of his life cooking on grills that rust out after a year or two? He deserves the commercial quality, unrivaled performance, and top-of-the-line features that only the Blaze Professional LUX can offer. (We think the best-in-class, lifetime warranty will treat him well, too.)

  • Traeger Ironwood 885 Wi-Fi Controlled Pellet Grill

    Perhaps the father in your life is more of the low-and-slow type of guy, in which case you’ve almost certainly heard him mention Traeger before. The Ironwood 885 in particular delivers a premium outdoor cooking experience from the original pellet grill brand: wood-fired flavor, hassle-free controls, Wi-Fi capabilities, and remarkably stable temperatures for virtually any type of cooking. Even if Dad isn’t into slow-cooking, the set-it-and-forget-it Traeger Ironwood just might change his mind, no matter how stubborn he can be.

  • Weber Performer Deluxe Freestanding Charcoal Grill

    It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… Dad grilling on a Weber! Indeed, few things are more powerful than your old man cooking with the iconic grill brand, especially when it’s the Weber Performer Deluxe. This charcoal grill is decked out with helpful features to improve Dad’s experience: a weatherproof Char-Basket container for storing fuel within the grill, a Touch-N-Go ignition system for easy startup, and the patented One-Touch cleaning system for when his job is done. Then he’s off to save other planets, one perfectly grilled burger at a time.

  • Burch Barrel V2 Grill

    Inspired by communal cowboy grilling — yeah, you can already tell this’ll be a hit with Dad — the Burch Barrel is versatile in both fuel and cooking style. He’ll be able to grill, smoke, sear, roast, and bake using briquettes, lump charcoal, or wood. There are innovative designs everywhere you look, all the way down to the circular shape that creates a communal cooking experience typically reserved for campfires. We can’t help Dad live out all his cowboy fantasies, but the Burch Barrel will at least make him feel like he’s out on the range.

  • Ooni Fyra 12 Wood Pellet Portable Outdoor Pizza Oven

    This Ooni oven makes quite the promise: portable pizza for Pops in 60 seconds flat. How? Despite its compact size, the Ooni Fyra can reach a whopping 932°F, plenty enough heat to almost instantly fire a 12” pie to craveable crispiness and gooey goodness. Better yet, it’s fueled by hardwood pellets that infuse wood-fired flavor into every bite. (It’s at this point that you’re probably thinking, “Hey, I’ll just get this for myself!” To which we respond: “What would your father think?”) Throw in minimal assembly and a portable design, and you’ve got the perfect gift for dads who love to eat well on the road.

It’s the outdoor kitchen hack Dad doesn’t even know he needs, and one that’ll save him the time and effort of building an outdoor space himself. (Let’s be honest, we both know he thinks every project is a DIY project.)

Our rib rotisserie system is designed for peak performance, from the stabilizing support rod that prevents trays from twisting and dropping to the stainless steel build for years of use. Each of the 4 trays can hold an entire rack of ribs, but why limit Dad to a single dish?

    Help Dad appreciate the dirty work with Napoleon’s cutting board/knife combo. Known for producing quality grills, Napoleon carries over its craftsmanship to the genuine acacia wood cutting board whose warm, rich grain in various tints belies its durability and microbe resistance. As for the executive chef’s knife — appropriately named for the man of the house — it’s forged from German steel with a razor-sharp blade to tackle every task. Any way you slice it, this is the best way to give Dad an edge in the kitchen and ensure he never gets bored with prep work.

    Though the father in your life may not exactly be fashion-forward (remember those socks from up top?), this is the quickest way to get him looking trendy behind the pit without sacrificing safety. Our full-coverage BBQ apron is crafted with heavy-duty, cotton-twill denim that stands up to splattering grease and grime from the grill; in terms of style, you’ll find modern design touches like contrast stitching everywhere you look.
