  1. OXO Good Grip 16" Grilling Tongs, $15
    • After LOTS of grilling, I have yet to find a pair of tongs that even compare to my OXO ones (you can thank me later). 
  2. Grill Daddy Ergonomic Grill Cleaning Brush, $32
    • There is nothing I hate more than going to clean off my grill and my hand slipping onto the greasy grill top. I love the way this brush is set up to help you easily put a little more muscle into cleaning and making your hand almost impossible to slip.
  3. Mercer's Culinary All-Purpose Hell-Handle Spatula, $35
    • This spatula is my all time favorite when grilling up fish. You will NOT be disappointed!  
  4. Cuisinart BBQ Tools Set, $40 (Extra 20% Off)
    • Intersted in an all-in-one set for this Father's Day?  You'll really like this one.  It even comes with a basting brush and hard case, which are an added bonus.

  1. Weber Rapid-fire Chimney Starter, $15
    • If you prefer a charcoal grill, a chimney starter is essential, and this has been my favorite one that I've tried!
  2. High Heat Non-Stick Pizza Pan, $27 (Extra 20% Off)
    • I love grilling pizzas during the summer time, and this is my favorite pan to use.  I love how the handles make it easy to remove it from heat.  Prep tip: I like to warm it up slightly before I put my pizza dough on it. They all claim "non-stick," but sometimes that's not the case!  
  3. Grillaholics Grill Basket, $35 (On SALE for $22
    • I have seen so many reviews that RAVE about this grill basket, which is why I had to just buy it to test it out myself! I love to use it for veggies, but it is very versatile.
  4. ThermoPro Meat Thermometer for Grill, $18 
    • I like this thermometer because you can use it on the grill or inside in the oven. It is really easy to read and super simple.
  5. Traeger BBQ Wood Pellets, $19 
    • If you haven't tried wood pellets while grilling then you haven't grilled at all!!  There are so many kinds - hickory, apple, smoked, mesquite, pecan, cherry, maple. They add such great flavor to whatever you are grilling up.

  1. AP Products Propane Level Sensor, $45 
    • I don't actually have one of these, but the thought of getting a text whenever my propane tank is running low is definitely tempting! I hate going out to grill only to find that I'm out of propane!  So annoying!
  2. Triple Initial Steak Brand,  $40  
    • This one is totally not necessary, but such a fun accessory, especially if Dad loves to entertain and show off his perfectly grilled meats.
  3. BBQ Grill Light, $20  
    • I'm lucky to have good outside lighting by my grill, but I know a few friends who don't and love having a grill light.  Ain't nobody got time to pull out their phone flashlight to see if some pork chops are done!! 
  4. Meat Lovers BBQ and Rubs, $43
    • This is a perfect gift for the Dad who already has it all.  There are different sauces and rubs to try, and I'll be honest, every rub I have ever tried from Williams-Sonoma has been spot on!
  5. Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto, $20  
    • Franklin Barbecue is one of the most famous restaurants in the entire nation when it comes to good Southern barbecue.  If Dad is a charcoal grilling / meat-smoker lover, he will love some of the tips, tricks and recipes in this book!
