What Type of Grill to Get Dad for Father’s Day

A new grill is the perfect Father's Day gift. First, it's a Father's Day gift he will actually use. Second, dad gets a grill and the family gets food. That's a win-win in our book.

At Char-Griller, we have a grill or griddle for every backyard and cooking style, and we wanted to make choosing the right Char-Griller for dad stress-free. Check out our guide below for which type of Char-Griller will be the perfect Father's Day gift this year.

A Classic Charcoal Barrel Grill

Does dad love classic charcoal flavor? Is starting up the coals and standing by the grill with a beer one of his favorite parts of summer? Then the classic charcoal barrel is the perfect grill for your dad. Char-Griller barrel grills come in a variety of sizes. From the smaller Blazer™ to the Super Pro®, a barrel grill is a great option for the dad who wants to grill with charcoal but wants lots of options when it comes to cooking zones.

An added bonus? You can make any Char-Griller barrel grill an offset Smoker with the Portable Tabletop Grill and Side Fire Box.

An Offset Smoker

If dad has already mastered charcoal grilling, it might be time to upgrade him to an offset smoker. A great way to make classic Texas-style BBQ in your backyard, Char-Griller offset smokers are a Father's Day gift that will provide dad with hours of tinkering and adjusting so the airflow and heat stays just right to get that perfect smoke ring and bark.

The Char-Griller Smokin' Champ™ is a good option for the dad who is just getting into offset smoking while the Grand Champ™ is a fantastic upgrade for the dad who knows his way around a smoker but wants something larger and heavy duty.

An AKORN® Kamado Grill

Have a dad that wants to cook everything on the grill? The Char-Griller AKORN is the grill he needs. Grill, smoke, sear, roast, bake and so much more with the AKORN kamado grill. Its triple walled insulation means ultimate fuel efficiency and the innovative steel body means that it is easy to move while still being able to stand up to the elements.

The AKORN also comes in a Jr. model so dad can take his grilling on the go for camping, tailgating and more.

A Dual Fuel Gas & Charcoal Grill

Have a dad that loves the flavor of charcoal but wants the convenience of gas sometimes? We have the solution: a dual fuel grill. With gas on one side and charcoal on the other, Char-Griller Dual Fuel grills are a great way to get the best of both worlds.

They are even Side Fire Box adaptable so you can turn the charcoal side into an offset smoker! Want the smoker included? The Texas Trio® is the grill you need. Made in a different style than our other dual fuels, this is a great grill for the dad who wants to be a pitmaster but also wants the freedom to grill up some quick burgers on the gas side.

Another option for fans of gas and charcoal is our Flavor Pro™ Multi-Fuel Grill. Equipped with the innovative flavor drawer, this is a gas grill that quickly turns into a charcoal grill with a turn of the burners.

A Flat Iron® Gas Griddle

If dad already has a grill he loves, why not add a griddle to his outdoor cooking arsenal? Coming in 2-burner, 4-burner and a portable model, the Char-Griller Flat Iron® gives you the ability to cook a wide variety of meals for any time of the day. Create individual heat zones on the 2 and 4-burner models to cook every part of your meal at once. Cleanup is a breeze thanks to the easy-to-use grease tray and to be honest, the griddle might be the most fun thing to cook on ever.

Fair warning, since you can literally cook everything from pancakes and hash browns to stir-fry and fajitas, you might never get dad to cook a meal inside ever again. Find the Char-Griller Flat Irons at Menards!

The Gravity 980 Charcoal Grill

Have a dad that loves being an early adopter to new and innovative technologies? The Gravity 980 Charcoal Grill is the perfect Father's Day gift. The Gravity 980 is the charcoal grill perfected. It is as easy to use as a pellet grill but you get the real taste and flavor of charcoal. The LCD controller with bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, let's dad control the temperature of is grill and monitor the cook right from his phone. A slide damper and precision control fan keeps the smoke rolling and the fire going. Go from low and slow at 200 degrees to a quick and hot searing 700 degrees in 20 minutes.

Built to last and designed to impress, the Gravity 980 is a surefire way to secure your spot as dad's favorite.

We're obviously biased, but we think there's truly no better Father's Day gift than a new grill or griddle and thanks to Char-Griller's full line of products, you'll be able to find something for dad no matter what his cooking style is!
