Best Gift to Buy to be the Favorite Child: A Pellet Grill
If your dad doesn’t yet have a grill, buying him a pellet grill for Father’s Day is sure to make you his favorite child (even if he won’t admit it)! Pellet grills are very different from your traditional barbeque, so don’t rule it out even if he dons his apron to grill a couple of burgers on a barbeque at the weekends throughout the summer.
How Does a Barbeque and Pellet Grill Differ?
Most people own barbeques that are powered by gas or charcoal, which are great fuels if you want to blast something with heat for a short time, for less than an hour. They’re great for grilling burgers, hot dogs, corn, and anything else that doesn’t need a lot of time cooking.
A pellet grill, on the other hand, is designed to maintain a constant, lower temperature over time. This makes it ideal for smoking and barbequing any kind of food, but they really shine when cooking bigger cuts such as brisket, ribs, whole or half chicken or turkey, and more.

The Best Grilling Accessories to Buy for Father’s Day
Of course, if your dad already has a Z Grills, then some accessories will be an ideal gift. Our accessories are high quality, budget-friendly, and elevate every grilling experience. Here are our top picks for Father’s Day:
They say a man is only as good as his tools, and this is also true in the world of smoking, grilling, and barbequing! This 4-Pack BBQ Tool Set includes everything your dad needs to cook with quality and in style. Inside he’ll find a stainless steel spatula (with a bottle opener on the handle!), tongs, fork, and basting brush. The incredible reviews of these tools prove you won’t go wrong with this gift!
Bamboo is extremely durable while not being so hard that it instantly blunts all your knives, which makes it the perfect material for preparing food. The drip trenches in our Z Grills Bamboo Cutting Board will catch the juices from meat, fruit, and vegetables, and ensure there aren’t any unnecessary spillages. The beautiful light wood tone of bamboo fits in any style of kitchen, so it will look great even when it’s not being used, too!
Ever heard your dad cursing as a shrimp or piece of meat slips between the grates and into the fire when grilling? If so, our Z Grills BBQ Grill Mats are a must-buy. They sit on top of the grill (no matter what type of grill you’re using!) and prevent the food from falling through, while still allowing them to cook perfectly. They can withstand heat up to 500 °F and are made from FDA-approved materials, so there’s no chance of nasty chemicals.
Unless you’re eating out, there is (unfortunately!) always at least a little cleanup to do when cooking at home. It’s always a pain, but with our Z Grills Stainless Steel Grill Cleaner tool, clean-up will go by much faster! This brush effectively removes dirt without the use of bristles and removes debris with little effort from any type of grill.
It can be all too easy to burn yourself when you’re smoking for hours and forget how hot your grill can get, especially if you’re a little too eager to get it cleaned and put away for next time. Our Z Grills BBQ Gloves resist heat and protect you from burns up to a whopping 1472 °F! Since our hottest Z Grill goes up to 750 °F, these BBQ Gloves will keep his hands safe whenever he’s grilling or handling hot equipment.
