The Godfather of Pellet Grills Becomes a Pit Boss

BBQ Bob joins Team Pit Boss



- Phoenix, AZ, Thursday, July 19th - Pit Boss Grills (Dansons, Inc.) is announcing a new partnership with BBQ Bob, an unofficial “BBQ Celebrity” and the man credited as being the Godfather of Pellet Grills. Born and raised in St. Joseph, Missouri Bob found his barbecue roots early on, and helped create the barrel lid that pellet grills are known for today. Not only has BBQ Bob won many-a-BBQ competition, he has also cooked at a legislative picnic, championed pellet grills into the future, and helped raise national awareness for the pellet grill segment.

“I am proud to be part of a company that is helping make a 200-year-old tradition available to everyone” said Bob. “Not only are Pit Boss Grills Bigger. Hotter. Heavier. than other pellet grills out there, but the company has a solid foundation in family and friendship.”


BBQ Bob and Dan Thiessen, the CEO and R&D enthusiast of Dansons, have been friends since the early 90’s, and when Dan offered Bob a position with the company, there was no way Bob could refuse. “I’ve been friends with Dan for almost 30 years, and he knows how much I love preaching the pellet grill gospel – it was a natural partnership” according to Bob.

When Dan was asked how he felt about BBQ Bob joining the Pit Boss Team he said that he was, “excited to have him come onboard” and that he’s, “looking forward to BBQ Bob helping to promote and raise awareness for the Pit Boss brand - being his natural, outgoing self.”


BBQ Bob currently resides in York, Nebraska where he lives with his wife, Shawna.



Pit Boss Grills is a subsidiary of Dansons, Inc. which was founded in 1999 by Dan Thiessen and his two sons, Jeff and Jordan. Pit Boss Grills is known for their durability and craftsmanship, as well as for their family style and approach to business. From portable grills like the Pit Boss Tailgater, to massive grills like the Pit Boss Austin XL – Pit Boss Grills takes pride in creating whatever the customers (and employees) dream up. Last year, Dansons was awarded EY Entrepreneur of the Year (2017).
