  17. Kristine

    I have to say the only thing I have ever eaten from my dad’s grill are hot dogs and they were good!

  18. My family makes the best burgers around. When I was younger, my mom used to make the patties and my dad used to grill them. These days, I do the patty-making and my brother does the grilling but my dad’s always buzzing around with some constructive criticism. It’s one of our favorite weekend activities if my brother and I make it home!

  26. Danielle Stroinski

    My dad cooks AMAZING ribs! They are so juicy. And he makes his own homemade BBQ sauce! Mmmmmmm makes my mouth water.

  27. Steph

    My dad makes pork chops, steaks, and hamburgers on the grill. But my favorites are my husband’s marinated steaks. Yum!

  28. Jamie

    My dad is not much of a griller, but I would say he is not too shabby with good ole burgers and hot dogs.

  29. My dad is the king of grilled chicken. That was often our Sunday night dinner in the summer and it still makes my mouth water today!

  37. My dad makes the BEST grilled chicken. And I gave him a cookbook called “Pizza on the Grill” for Christmas and can’t wait for a summer of grilled pizzas!

  38. Sarah

    Maybe I should proof read before leaving comments. S/b My Dad is great with steaks on the grill and my hubby always turns them into hockey pucks. 🙂 I also pushed the Like button on Facebook.

  39. My family’s new favorite thing to BBQ is pizza! I had no idea you could BBQ pizza dough, but you totally can. My husband and I could definitely use a grill like this.

  40. Angie

    My dad grills fruit, and it is amazing! Pineapple, apricots, apples, you name it. He usually cuts them into chunks and stakes them on skewers, then we eat those fantastic fruit-kebobs!

  41. Nicole

    My dad is fantastic on the grill, but my favorite thing he makes is carne asada. It’s so yummy and I love to come over when he makes it.

  42. Hillary

    Hamburgers. I love my Dad’s hamburgers on the grill. And he and I have collaborated on several other yummy grill items: shrimp, Korean BBQ, grilled veggies, fajitas. I’m salivating just thinking about it!

  43. Thanks Jenny! this is a great giveaway! The best thing my Dad does with the grill……………is eat whatever comes off of it!!! Love him, but he is not much of a cook!

  44. Katie

    My dad cooks pork roasts then shreds the meat to mix with his homemade BBQ sauce. We eat this on buns with cole slaw made from my mom. To die for would be the words to describe.

  45. ann

    The best thing my dad cooks on the grill is NOTHING. And we give thanks every summer day for that. He can’t cook worth a darn. But I make a mean BBQ chicken, and my grilled vegetables can’t be beat.

  46. I have to be honest, my dad has NO BEST THING that he cooks on the grill – this man hate all meat! He would rather have a baf of Fritos in his hands! LOL

  47. My dad cooks just about everything on the grill from meats to veggies to bread. I think his favorite thing is beer can chicken, he does one about once a week.

  48. Sullygirl2009

    My dad makes the best roast chicken on the grill. When my son and I went down to TN to see my parents in April he made us one….oh boy was it great!

  49. Sarah

    My dad does a great grilled mushroom on his bbq and my husband marinades steak in a ‘secret’ sauce made out of italian dressing, raspberries, and (again) ‘secret’ spices. It turns out soooooo good!

  50. tamara henry

    My dad’s been gone a long time, but he loved to grill. he had a little hibachi grill and he would do wonderful things with it. he would have loved this grill! My husband would use this for turkey brats and chicken breasts! Thanks! I like you on FB

  51. Kristin

    Hmm…all I remember my dad cooking on the grill when I was younger are burgers. They were super yummy though!

  52. My dad doesn’t really cook anything on the grill…but he cooks really good mexican food 🙂
    However, my husband is GREAT at cooking steaks on the grill!

  53. my dad — not so much into cooking of any kind. my father-in-law, however, makes delicious grilled teriyaki chicken with boneless, skinless thighs. my two-year-old scarfs it up.

  54. Katie K

    I would love to get this for my husband….I bought him a cheapy grill from wally world and he looked at me like I was crazy!!! I would love to make up for that!! I love his steaks…they always come out perfect!!!!

  55. Jennifer Goodman

    My dad can cook hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill like no other. Gotta love our Dads!!!

  56. Christy

    Just added PP on FB. Also my father-in-law makes an amazing teriyaki marinaded flank steak on the grill…yummmm.

  57. Kimm Geria

    My Dad is no longer here with us, but he made the best filet mignon. It just melted in your mouth. My hubby BBQ’s now and he is specialty is steak as well. Just cooked right with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper.

  58. Jessica B.

    My husband makes some mean fish tacos on the grill. Throw some tilapia and whole peppers on the grill…spice up…wrap up in corn tortillas and enjoy.

  59. Michelle Stuckey

    My father-in-law grills the best chicken. Its extremely moist & tasty. It doesn’t even have BBQ sauce on it. The best I’ve ever eaten. If you had it, you wouldn’t want any other.

  60. bebeblues

    The best thing my father made on the grill was toasted marshmallows. He wasn’t much of a griller, but the time spent toasting marshmallows brings smiles to my face til this very day. Good Times :o)

  61. Sarah

    My husband does a great job grilling onions and peppers, they are just beautifully simple and delicious!!

  62. Niki

    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?!

  63. Molly Harris

    My dad is not a great griller – he tries but he overcooks everything. My husband is an awesome griller especially steaks!

  64. Shauna Vallery

    As a kid my dad cooked the best pork chops! We would love to win the Coleman Roadtrip grill to take with us in our Motorhome.

  65. Becca

    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.

  66. 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!

  67. 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!!
