4 Things Every Grilling Dad Does

1.  Casually Drink Beer

Via reactiongifs.com

Unanimously, all dads will drink on Father’s Day.  And drinking will cause fires (see #3) and heated debates about whose sports team is better.

2.   Over/Undercook the Food

Unless your Dad is a master chef, your food isn’t coming out perfect.  If he burns the food, it will be more charcoal than actual meat.  To cover his tracks, Dad will claim the burnt flavor is actually a special secret meat rub.  If he undercooks your food, then Dad’s going to claim he did it on purpose, “so that you can taste the flavor of the food”.  Either way, bring along a PB&J to eat when he’s not looking.

3.  Cause a Fire

Inevitably, when Dads and grills are involved, a fire happens.  Perhaps it’s the drinking, perhaps it’s just male fascination with fire . . . but someone or something gets burned.  Is it going to be the food, a finger or Mom’s prized rosebushes?

4.  Wear A Cheesy Apron That Embarrasses You

We all love when Dads wear those “Kiss the Cook” aprons. But it’s always better when Dad says something to embarrass the whole family.
