Must Have Grilling Gifts for Father's Day

Father’s Day is that special time when you get the chance to show how much you appreciate him. If you have a dad who loves to grill, then you know how hard he’s worked to make the family well fed and happy. Whether the father in your life is a part time griller or the BBQ king of your block, we wrote this grilling gift guide so you can find the perfect Pit Boss gift for the man who made a difference in your life.

Top Grills and Smokers to Get Dad for Father’s Day

It doesn’t matter if your dad or husband has a favorite charcoal or propane grill that he’s used for years, every guy loves a new toy to play with. A Pit Boss pellet grill can reinvigorate your old man’s BBQ experience by adding in options he didn’t even know were available in outdoor cooking. With these grills, he’ll be able to not only grill, but smoke, bake, roast, sear, braise, barbeque or char-grill his heart out.

Or maybe he already has a Pit Boss Grill? Are you sure deep down he’s not wanting to upgrade to a bigger or newer grill? Or maybe he’s happy with his grill, but wishes he had one to go camping with or a separate vertical smoker. We can understand how tough it can be to sort out all these possibilities.

Now that we have those wheels turning here’s our top grills and smokers for dad:

For the dad who loves the great outdoors: The Tailgater

Tailgater Grill

The tailgater is the Pit Boss Grill you can take anywhere you have access to a power source. Great for RVing, camping, a day at the races, and (you guessed it) tailgating.

This grill may be smaller compared to the standard Pit Boss, but it still packs plenty of room and lets you do everything a bigger Pit Boss Pellet Grill can do. At 340 square feet there is enough room to grill 20 hamburgers at a time.

Can’t decide whether to get your father a smoker, gas, or charcoal grill? Well, you’re in luck. The Pit Boss Memphis Ultimate Smoking Grill does all three.

The first of its kind, the Memphis Ultimate is the combination of a gas barbecue, a charcoal barbecue and a glass doored electric smoker, totaling over 2,100 square inches of cooking space. It’s the perfect gift for the man who loves all things BBQ and Grilling.

For the dad who loves to host: The Austin XL

Is your pops the kind of guy that loves being around people? Better yet, does he love having them over and feeding them? Then you’re going to need a big grill and the Austin XL will be his go to. With over 900 sq inches of cooking space, the Austin XL can handle enough meat and veggies to feed a football team.

This big grill also packs a big value. At this size, features, and price, there’s not a pellet grill on the market that can beat the Austin XL.

For the BBQ Pro (or the dad who thinks he is): The Pro Series 1100

Does your dad consider himself a “Pit Master”? Someone who takes great pride in what he cooks and loves to study and learn about all things BBQ? Does he make his own sauce instead of buying it at the store?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the Pro Series 1100 is for him. At 1100 square inches, it is the largest wood pellet grill yet. With 2 programmable meat probes, your father will be able to dial in the perfect temperature for whatever meat he chooses to cook and deliver incredible wood fired flavor that will make him the envy of your neighborhood.

For the part time griller: The Classic

Not every dad wants to be a Pit Master or BBQ King, and guess what? We’ve got a grill (or three) for him too. Our grills are for everybody, even the guy who’s fine with grilling a few steaks or burgers on game day.

Make no mistake about it though, The Classic can do everything our other 8 in 1 wood pellet grills can do, just in a more compact form. Still, at 700 sq inches, it is plenty of space to cook a meal for a family of four.
