My family says I am hard to shop for on Fathers Day or any day for that matter. I think I am rather easy to shop for. Like most BBQ Fans we are always happy to receive new rubs, gloves, gadgets, meats, thermometers, pits, grills or anything that makes our BBQ experience better. If you need some clues for your BBQ loving Father just check out his social media profiles. I bet he has shared some pics and follows brands related to BBQ and grilling.
If you are still looking for some help check out some of these great Father’s Day BBQ Gift Giving Ideas for 2020.

Thermometers and Meat Probes
Around here we love the thermometers and meat probes from ThermoWorks. They have a huge selection of professional grade thermometers with accurate readings and long lasting design. Many backyard barbecue cooks have more than one thermometer or meat probe so don’t worry if he already has a thermometer. At ThermoWorks you can find a great addition to his tool kit for instant temperature reads or monitoring the temperature of a long cook.
You will find thermometers at ThermoWorks starting around $35 for the ThermoPop® and the popular Thermapen® MK4 for about $100. For the Dad that loves to smoke briskets and other large cuts on a smoker check out the Smoke X™ Long Range Wireless BBQ Alarm Thermometer. This baby is awesome and you can select either a two probe or 4 probe capable monitor. It’s the kind of gadget he will show off to his friends for years to come.
Pit Barrel Cooker
The Pit Barrel Cooker makes a great Father’s Day Gift for the Dad that loves to grill and smoke meats. If your Dad is like me and wants great tasting meat without having to monitor a fire for 12 hours this is a fantastic cooker. I have been using my Pit Barrel Cooker for several years and have been very happy with the results. If I had known cooking brisket and ribs could be this easy I would have joined the Pit Barrel Cooker Revolution much sooner.
Not only is the Pit Barrel Cooker a great Father’s Day Gift for 2020 but it will provide you with gift ideas for years to come. Pit Barrel Cooker offers accessories for the cooker itself to make the cooker more convenient and versatile. There are hangers for different kinds of meats and vegetables. The hinged grill grate is a must for smoking ribs allowing you to hang the ribs and cook on the grate at the same time. You can also find rubs, knives and apparel from Pit Barrel Cooker that also make great gifts for your Dad.
Every Backyard BBQ guy needs a great selection of dry rubs for grilling and smoking meats. Even if our pantry is full, a new rub we haven’t tried before will always be appreciated. Rubs come in more flavors than you can ever manage to try but somehow a BBQ lover will try to test them all. Listed below are a few brands of dry rubs I have tried and enjoy that your Dad might appreciate too.
- Meat Church Holy Cow
- Rufus Teague Spicy Meat Rub
- Stanley’s Pitmaster’s Spike
- The Shed Rack Attack Rib Rub
- Bone Suckin’ Sauce Seasoning Rub
- Stubb’s Pork Rub
- Hardcore Carnivore Black
- Cool Smoke BBQ Rub
The choices for rubs and seasonings are endless. You can also check out your Dad’s pantry to get an idea of what his favorite brands are.
When it comes to grilling accessories you have plenty of products and categories to choose from. Maybe a new cutting board with his name etched into the board. Spatulas, tongs, forks and knives are great choices as well. You can even put several things together and make a personalized gift box he will love. If your Dad is into grilling steaks think about getting him a cast iron pan for that perfect sear.
Pay him a visit and check out his current grill or smoker. Take note of the brand and model and then check out the website for his equipment. You just might find some great accessories specially designed for his current grill or smoker. For example if his cover is old and worn out you can buy him a new one to protect his grill.
Dads love to grill and we really love to share the food we cook with our friends and family. So for Father’s Day this year consider giving him a great gift to help him enjoy cooking outdoors even more than he already does. After all you don’t want to be that child that just gives their Dad a necktie or Worlds Greatest Dad Coffee Mug, do you?
