    Great giveaway! My favorite thing my dad cooks on the grill is steak. He doesn’t even need to season them a lot, he just gets great meat and cooks them well 🙂

    My Dad isn’t awesome at grilling – he usually over cooks everything, but he’s my dad and i eat it anyway:) However, my Husband (who is a dad – and the best dad I’ve ever seen!) is awesome on the grill – he cooks meat just perfect. And he grills corn and broccoli… he’s fantastic. Unfortunately, our grill is broken and I’ve been going through withdrawls because since the baby has been born we haven’t been able to afford to buy a new one… so this would be PERFECT!!

    Grilling is the only way my dad cooks and every year we have a big cookout and he grills turkey tenderloins marinated in Italian dressing… simple but delicious and its about the only time of year I have them. This grill would be perfect for tailgating – he would love it!

    My Dad taught me the secret of grilling killer marinated chicken breasts. My husband also loves to grill, and his specialty is pork ribs with a dry rub.

    Niki says:

    The best thing he can grill is a flat iron steak. He completely coats a flat iron steak in Montreal Steak Seasoning, puts it in frig for a while, then straight to medium grill for 6 minutes each side. Then he lets it rest for a few minutes before slicing it thin. It is perfectly med-rare and oh-so-tasty. Even my young children can’t get enough. Sounds simple? It is. (He’s a man after all.) But sometimes simple is best, so why mess with perfection?!
