Father’s Day Ideas AND Our First GIVEAWAY!

by Kevin H. on June 5, 2012 · 8 comments

Need some ideas for your Dad with Father’s Day coming up?  Why not get him something for the grill?  Below is a list of tools I use on a regular basis:

Weber Performer – The best grill out there.  Period.  Don’t argue, I’ll just get angry.

Weber Performer Cover – Sturdy and protects your grill from the elements.

Probe Thermometer –  If you don’t already have one, you obviously haven’t been reading my posts.

Veggie Basket – It’s absolutely necessary if you ever plan to grill something other than just meat.

Wood Plank – These are so cool for smoking fish.  Adds incredible flavor.

Stock Pot – Not used as frequently, but nice for warming sauces or making chili on the grill.

Chimney Fire Starter – Still the cleanest way to light coals.  I love it.

BBQ Mitt – Again absolutely necessary…unless you’re into burn marks on your hands and arms.

Grill Brush – Buy a good one, otherwise you’ll burn through it in a summer.

Silicone Brush – So much better than bristle brushes that I can’t even discuss it.  Just buy one.

Self-locking Tongs – I’ve written about it.  It’s just ridiculously important.

Jalepeno Popper set – Having this makes it easy and fun to do poppers.

Injector and Needles – I inject a LOT.  You should too…but only if you care about flavor and tenderness and juicy meat.

Pizza Stone Set – I have so much fun with this it’s criminal.  I’ll post a recipe and pics soon.

Now, for our very first giveaway!

Father's Day Rub Giveaway


We have partnered up with a wonderful site & company – St. Louis BBQ Store – run by an extraordinarily kind and generous man, Ron Kaup.  No matter where you live, you’ll want to check out his new site for all of your BBQ supply needs.  From smokers to rubs & sauces & wood…he’s got it all.  I bought my Backwoods Fatboy competition smoker from Ron and have been thrilled with the service he provided.  Several of my teammates have bought the Backwoods Chubby from him and are equally pleased.

We’re giving away some amazing rubs to one lucky person.  We’re including a bottle of rub from Sweet Swine O’ Mine, two from Uncle Bob’s, and one bottle of rub from SLABS a’ Smokin.  All of these are award-winning rubs and I can personally vouch for their deliciousness.

You can either choose to keep them for yourselves, or give to your Dad on Father’s Day. Shhhh…he doesn’t need to know you didn’t pay for it!  The Giveaway starts today and ends Sunday June, 10th.  Use our tool below to enter!
