Classic Bacon Cheeseburger. A Father’s Day BBQ staple that brings all the red meat eaters ‘round the grill. This recipe walks you through the process of making this timeless burger into a cookout knockout. Easy prep, easy execution!

Pulled Pork Barbecue with Hot Pepper Vinegar Sauce The secret to a perfect pulled pork - aside from quality meat - is the rub. Weber’s recipe adds some tang to the mixture for a slightly sweet, slightly spicy, totally delectable taste.

Hickory Smoked Beer Can Chicken. Put together two of dad’s favorites: a cold beer and a perfectly seasoned, expertly grilled chicken, and you’ve got a Father’s Day fave. This one requires two hours to let the bird refrigerate before cooking, so leave yourself plenty of prep time.

Beer Bathed Brisket. While we have the beer out, might as well put it into another killer Dad’s Day meal. We suggest using a hearty brew, like a Guinness or another stout, for this beer and balsamic-bathed brisket.

Paprika Rubbed Steaks with Pickled Onions For a perfectly pickled onion, make sure you have a few hours to let them soak up all the juices. After that, this recipe only requires a few rub ingredients, and of course, a high quality meat.

Pork Tenderloin Sliders. Who doesn’t love a slider? They’re easy to hold so you can mingle with other BBQ guests, and their size means you can eat more than one - perfect for this crowd pleasing pork tenderloin recipe!

Baby Back Ribs with Plum Glaze This recipe spans the course of two days, as the meat needs to marinate for about 8-12 hours before it’s ready for the fire. But the Weber experts all agree: it’s worth the wait.

Smoked Jalapeno Poppers

Planked Sausage Rolls. Another handheld, easy-to-chat-with recipe, these English-inspired sausage rolls are a great way to kick off the Father’s Day festivities. 

Buffalo Chicken Wings with Creamy Blue Cheese with Creamy Blue Cheese and Apple Slaw We saved the best for last: chicken wings are a cookout essential, and our recipe includes a fresh, tasty slaw that brings out the buffalo flavor of the chicken.
