It’s generally agreed that gifts for Dads are not easy to find. Gifts are needed for his birthday, Christmas, Father’s day or ‘just because’, so you need some help! If your dad’s a budding chef, grill master, or the type of guy who likes to unwind with a cold beer, here are some ideas for gifts to help him enjoy his skills when entertaining or dining in at home:


1. Roast garlic over hot coals with the Charcoal Companion Cast Iron Garlic Roaster. Your dad can also use this on a gas grill or in the oven. Set the oven or bbq to 400 degrees, trim the top of the garlic bulb and cook. Grill master points for your dad when he serves this with the meat.

2. One of the greatest gifts in the gift of time. If you don’t want your dad to be trapped by the grill, let the Pitmaster IQ120 regulate the cooking temperature. All dad has to do is set the cooking temperature, step back and the foods will cook perfectly for a smoky bbq flavor whilst leaving the meat juicy, fall-off-the-bone tender and delicious.

3. Your dad works hard at getting the perfect bbq, so one of the best gifts to him is a Grillbot. This is a robot that roams around the grill, brushing off caked-on crust with its 3 motor-powered wire brushes. Let the grill cool, set the Grillbot down, select the cleaning time, close the lid and an alarm will let you know when it’s done.

4. Stainless Steel Jalapeno Poppers Grilling Rack keeps your dad’s jalapeno poppers upright while you add fillings and bbq great tasting and unique appetizers for your next outdoor event.

5. Mini-Burger Triple Press Slider Set. Mini burgers (aka sliders) make ideal snacks for any occasion. The triple patty press means you cook more food faster.

6. The electric Kamado Joe Blow Lighter makes starting the charcoal grill easy. One of the best gift’s to make your dad look even more cool. Simply plug it, turn it on, hold it near the charcoal, and your dad will have burning coals in as little as three minutes. The three position switch allows you to use it to light the fire and then switch to fan only mode to stoke it.
