It may sound a bit cliché to call dad “king of the grill,” but that’s the way it is in my house: I do the prep work, and Rob is the one standing outside searing and grilling. It’s truly a combined effort. If the dad in your life is king of the grill, you’re in luck! You’ll find BBQ gift ideas online and in-store to suit every budget.
Help protect the deck, patio or balcony with this large grill mat that lays under your griller.
Whether you already have a BBQ or are looking to surprise the dad in your life with one for Father’s Day, you should help protect it from the elements. So, be sure to pick up a barbecue cover if you don’t already have one.
This BBQ cover by Classic Accessories is designed to fit BBQs up to 58” L x 24” W x 48” H. It features click-close straps that snap over legs to help secure cover on windy days. Air vents help reduce inside condensation and wind lofting. Fabric is made with a water repellant and resistant PVC under-coating.
BBQs and outdoor cooking
My dad isn’t much of a griller. I don’t know why; perhaps it’s because his dad wasn’t. Nevertheless, I do remember the year he brought home a round-shaped charcoal BBQ. I still prefer that old-school charbroil flavour. I wonder if that’s just nostalgia talking or the fact that I burn just about everything?
Is your happy griller toying with the idea of smoking meat, veggies or fish? Your first foray into this tasty domain could come with the Premium Kettle Charcoal Grill & Smoker.
This portable gas grill, also by Pit Boss, is outfitted for a 20-pound propane tank but you can use a 1-pound cylinder adapter (all sold separately) for extra versatility. It features two burners, a stainless-steel exterior and up to 20,000 BTU of firepower.
If dad likes cooking with gas, he might enjoy grilling with the Performance Series: the TRU-Infrared 3-Burner Gas Grill. This mid-size, mid-budget range BBQ is backed by a 5-year burner, 2-year firebox and 1-year all other parts warranty.
The TRU-Infrared cooking technology of this Char-Broil gas grill helps prevent flare-ups, delivers even heat and creates juicier food. It features three burners, a side burner, secure tank storage and 27,000 BTUs on primary burners.
Imagine king of the grill’s surprise if he were to open a 36-inch griddle cooking station! A griddle station is ideal for preparing breakfasts and brunches outside (when you’re trying to keep your kitchen cool in the summer heat). You can also stir-fry veggies and side dishes while the meat’s on the grill. Rob and I own this griddle, and we love it!
