2018 Gift Guide for Dad at the Grill

[su_spacer]

Throughout the year we try dozens of new products, and many we fall in love with and put in our own regular rotation around the grill. This year we’re  categorizing our list, and we’ve added a digital section for great gifts that are just a click away. How about getting Dad a Father/Son trip to grill in a Steak Cook-Off in the Bahamas or a membership to Meathead’s Pitmaster Club? If you’re running behind on your gift-buying, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with some great last-minute gifts. All of the products you’ll find here are products we love from people we know.

HOW ABOUT A VINTAGE GRILL FOR DAD?

[su_divider top=”no” divider_color=”##df6a00″]

We weren’t going to include any grills in this year’s guide because we’ve never met a grill we didn’t like! But then we realized that we too have been caught up in the “vintage grill” craze!

PK Portable Kitchen 19671997 Weber

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The two hottest vintage grills were both born in the same year: 1952.  That would be the PK (Portable Kitchen) and Weber. We just added a 1997 Weber Genesis Silver B to our collection of grills. It truly is a classic.  And speaking of classics, the original edition PK Classic is a hot commodity now. A 1967 PK owned by Justin Barnes recently won the 29th annual World Championship Steak Cook-off ® in Magnolia, AR.  Scour Craigslist and Facebook groups if you want to find one of these vintage gems. Good luck!
