Father's Day grill-out

Plus, these Father’s Day gifts for barbecue enthusiasts are kind of like a gift to yourself too because when dad barbecues, that’s just one less meal you have to make yourself, am I right?

Be Prepared for Any Event.

The Pit Boss- A great gift for the barbecuing dad!

Whether Dad is cooking out in the backyard, at a competition, or catering a party, the Pit-Boss is ready for any event. With never-flat wheels, you can easily cart this smoker across a wide variety of surfaces. We love this smoker because it’s small enough to easily transport, yet large enough to cook a feast! As with many of our models, heat and smoke automatically rotate around your barbecue masterpieces, rather than having to turn the meat. Check out our products page for more information on the Pit-Boss!

Bigger is Better. Smoke on the Go!

The Judge - A good father's day gift for the barbecue enthusiast

If Dad’s motto is “bigger is always better” then the Judge with a Stainless Rotisserie was built for him! The Judge 5FT can be ordered with legs and mounting pads, and several trailer options to be able to smoke on the go! ¬†Whether competing in a competition, or catering for a large party, the Judge was built with barbecue masters in mind. For variations of the Judge model, visit our products page. To see more features, specifications, and capacities, check out the Judge 5FT product info page.

Custom Covers for Grills & Smokers

Don’t forget the custom cover for Dad’s new grill! Not that there will ever be a time that dad won’t be using the Pit-Boss or Judge, but we like to suggest a cover, just in case. You never know when a hail storm will grace the midwest with its presence! Our custom fit covers are made of heavy-duty, waterproof vinyl with grommets to secure the cover so dad’s smoker will stay as handsome as ever.

An Apron

We know Dad probably already has one of these, but let’s face it. Unless Dad’s apron has some magic powers that help him win all of the contests, (which, we highly doubt it-dad probably just has mad skills) it’s probably about time to get a new one anyway.


You can never have too many tools! Stock up on tongs, metal skewers, knives, and a variety of stainless steel spatulas. These days, you can even customize many of these items with personal engravings that make them extra special.
