Guy Advertised For Father Figures To Attend His BBQ, And Loads Turned Up


A few days ago, a man took to Craigslist to advertise his desire for father figures to appear at his BBQ that he’d be hosting with his friends. Here’s what his advert read:

They needed someone/some people to:

– Grill hamburgers and hotdogs (whilst drinking beer)
– Bring their own grill (though this is subject to change. We will provide all of the meat)
– Refer to all attendees as “Big Guy’, “Chief”, “Sport”, “Champ” etc. (whilst drinking beer)
– Talk about dad things, like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet, etc. Funny anecdotes are highly encouraged. All whilst drinking beer.

They needed:

– A minimum of 18 years experience as a father
– A minimum of 10 years grilling experience
– An appreciation of a nice, cold beer on a hot summer day

Well, the BBQ did happen and so many father figures turned up. One Imgur user, TheDoctorFeelgood, happened to be there as one of the friends of the host and it looks like it was pretty great…


The event grew in popularity, the Boys were contacted by companies that wanted to sponsor the event! Johnsonville supplied a cooler full of brats, Chester Copperpot Clothing donated a bunch of custom t-shirts, and right at the last moment, Rainier hooked the Boys up with 500 cold ones!




This is Jim, AKA Grill Dad. He brought his own badass smoker/grill and fired it up, churning out delicious burgers and brats all night.”


This is Scott, AKA Weed Dad. Scott works at a dispensary and was hooking everybody up with infused goodies (we’re in Washington, it’s legal yo). Scott was also dishing out veggie burgers and A+ fatherly advice the whole time.”


“This is Pete, AKA Army Dad. In this picture Pete is singing us an Italian drinking song he learned from one of his Army buddies. Pete brought a pony keg of homebrew to share and some wild stories from his glory days.”


One of the guys brought a goat. Jim grilled it up and everyone got to try some. I’d never had goat before, it’s actually pretty good!”

I wish I were there. Surragate father BBQs are poppin’.
