I have the best wife and kids! They got me a new campchef 36" griddle and cover that I have been eyeballing for the last couple months. I am not sure when I will get it put together but I am sure excited. Today is a day full of boating on the gulf and tomorrow I need to finish up maintenance on the airplane so it will probably be late week before I get a chance. :cry:

What did you get?

Happy Father's Day all! I gote a shiny new Pit Barrel Cooker and six racks of back ribs to go in it! We don't typically do extravagant gifts, we are usually more of a homemade cards kind of family. But, I've recently gotten really interested in cooking and have been going on and on about a smoker for months so this is really awesome. Best wifey and kids ever! I'm new here by the way and really appreciate all the great info I've found here. Thank you all!

my workhorse 22" kettle is in rough shape, needs new guts, the ash pan falls off easily, it's seen 15 years of hard use.....so my wife replaced it with a shiny new, copper colored 22" Weber premium kettle. Excellent Father's Day gift in my opinion. So the Weber family is up to 4 members.

A phone call from my son who is cooking a brisket as I was lighting my cooker- to cook a brisket -- priceless

Well, it's still early. Son number one (Joseph) gave me a wonderful hug and a "happy Father's day" this morning. Son number two (Andrew) gave me a CAB T-bone, some bok choy, and some peppers so I can cook dinner.

Joseph and Daniel are at work, so time will tell.

I have the love and appreciation of all three boys. That's all that matters.

We started celebrating last night, both sons home for weekend so while I sipped some bourbon they gave me as a gift, delicious bacon wrapped fillets were grilled to perfection by them. Sides of Asparagus, roasted potatoes, Asian coleslaw, and my favorite sautéed mushrooms in a bourbon glaze sauce. Wife made a strawberry pie for desert. After all that a nice cigar and more bourbon while resting outside. Breakfast prepared for a king today before the guys headed back to their homes. Could not be prouder of the way they turned out. A LONG way from crappy diapers and other "joys" that at the time you think will never end! Happy Fathers Day to all the Brethren:-D

I was proud of myself for actually reading this thread, its been 28 years since my Dad passed then I read your post and cried like a B..... well it brought tears to my eyes.
Not trying to bring anyone down, its a good thing.
Hallmark Holiday or not y'all enjoy the day because we are here to actually enjoy it.

Right, it's a day to celebrate fatherhood. My Fathers day gifts were delivered over 30 years ago, and are still giving-for some reason they still want something to do with me.:-o. If anything, I thank my wife.
My Dad and all the father figures I've ever had have passed away.
In honor of my Dad and them, I'm cooking chicken and drinking beer, which they would approve of totally.

One of my most prized possessions is a Moscow circus t-shirt from a field trip with my son's class back in the mid 80's. It's at that point that I just keep it in the drawer except for special occasions, like today.

Picked up my concession trailer yesterday and got it home early this morning. Got the graphics done on my truck on Thursday. While not technically a "gift", it's not possible without the support of my family, especially my amazing wife.

It sounds like everyone had a great day for the most part. Even if your father is no longer here I am sure you were able to reflect on the past at the good times you had. I am lucky enough to still have mine but cherish every day because you never know. Even though they gave me the new griddle, the best part was we spent the day on the boat enjoying each other. The best gifts are almost always hand made and I have a drawer full of things from the past 10 years to prove it. Now after being beat down by the sun all day I really don't feel like putting the griddle together tonight but I do look forward to getting my 10 and 5 year old daughters to help this week.

My DAD brought me more than I had for him, and I don't even have kids! He's notoriously hard to buy for, so I had picked up a bunch of little things for his new gas grill. He was mostly excited about the ThermaPop. He bought me a cover for my new smoker, a grilling apron, and a gallon of commercial grade skeeter spray ( =

The missus and I drove our 15 year old son (Ethan) over to Champaign so he can spend the next 10 days at the University of Illinois Intensive wrestling camp. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them and because he was completely excited to meet up with his friends he met there last year! Then got home and my 18 year old daughter (Kayla) had bought me a Good Life cutting board. I had an awesome day and now I'm having a few beers in the garage!

On a separate note, I passed some lucky fella on the interstate hauling a brand new Yoder YS640 in royal blue home, so I'm sure he had a great day too! I hope he's a member here! Lol....

A relaxing day with my wife and son! Some bacon cheese burgers for lunch, and ribeye steaks for dinner. Also she gave me the thumbs up to grab the bayou classic at Costco!

My wife surprised me with a PartyQ so I tend the smoker less and spend more family time together. Our daughter was born the day before Father's Day in 2015 so every year for the rest of my life I will have that to cherish.

Got to spend the whole day with my wife and daughters. Yeah I got some stuff but the older my kids get the more i value time with them. My dad has been gone for 26 years. He only got to meet one of my kids. That upsets me more than anything. I wish they could have got to know him. He was just an awesome guy. Sorry guys...this thread has me reminiscing.

Hey! Smitty got a swing set.:thumb:

I got a new 3 Embers grill, thanks to a sweet Fathers Day sale at Tractor Supply. I couldn't pass it up, and the wife approved, so yay me! Cooked on it Friday and Saturday, and planning on doing a flank steak on it tonight. I freaking love this grill!

A great new 12" Dexture for slicing my briskets etc and and nice fat Ribeye!
My kids picked out a great knife (I left the model I liked lay out for them to find) and my wife can throw down with the best when it comes to grabbing the cast iron and rocking out a Ribeye

Got a card with a nice note and some $$ from the wife, a short call from the boy, who is off serving our country and currently feeling under the weather, and a late (as usual) text from my daughter this morning. The best part was talking to my Dad and hearing the about the fun he had going out shooting today. Grilled some chicken fajitas for the wife and our extended stay guest (sigh), and then went and had a couple cold ones with some friends.

All in all it was a decent day. We don't normally go overboard for it. I have more than I need, so anything more than to hear their voice or get a hug is over the top...

Jeanie I am also in your situation, mine left @ 40 years ago. But he left ME his love for great music, great intelligent females, real non fake, hard working honest people and cooking!!. So even though Fathers day is always sad to me, when I crank up a kettle, or a Jambo stick burner, or drum and fix a cocktail.....it is a celebration of him.
