    I would give this to my fiancé who is a Midwesterner who’s passionate about cooking and wants to master the art of southern BBQ. He would LOVE it!!!

    If I were lucky enough to win this awesome Tailgating Bundle from PK Grills I would wrap it up with a big red bow and give it to my sweet daddy for Christmas! My parents are both 82 years old and for the past 9 years my dad has taken on all the duties of running their household. He pays all the bills, does all the grocery shopping and cooks all their meals. My mom’s failing heath has made it hard for her to get around but my dad waits on her hand and foot (pretty much has done this their entire 60 years of marriage but even more so now….lol). He loves to try new recipes and surprise my mom with delicious entrees so I know he would get so much good use out of this charcoal grill! My dad always wears a apron while grilling and he could sure use a new one with neat pockets on it 🙂

    When I was a child growing up my dad cooked steaks on the barbecue pit every Sunday after church for me, my mom and my sister. My parents hardly ever miss attending church every Sunday and my dad still to the day cooks either a steak or delicious chicken on his gas grill. So if me or my sister are ever craving a good steak by my dad Jack (AKA The Grill Master) we know where to get one every weekend! His charcoal grill fell apart a few years ago and he’s sure been missing the great charcoal taste so I know he and my mom would be SUPER excited to win this neat grill!!

    I would give it to my family, we love to cook and make meals together. I love teaching my kids how to cook and all the different techniques that can be used to prepare delicious food.

    I would so give this my husband for our 32nd Anniversary on the 17th! He is a grill master and keeps this girl fed and happy for so many years. He has PK envy every time we go to a certain friend’s house who owns one. With a gift like that, we might last another 32 years. 🙂

    I would love to gift this to JP. He has wanted THIS grill from PK grills because it is for one, America made and solid quality construction. And wow all the fantastic accessories would blow his mind Christmas morning.

    Although pretty much, year round he only has Sunday’s off from work, you will likely find him hosting a great BBQ while either football or NASCAR is on.
    A real all around, fun, great guy, patriotic, generous and hard working.
    A good old boy..don’t tell him I said that though.

    My dad would get this wonderful bundle he is the best griller I know. I love his cooking and tailgate goodies yum.

  11. Janice

    I would give this to my dear friend whose son just signed a national letter of intent to play college football! She’s a single mom and is thankful for a college scholarship. She’ll be there tailgating before every game and could definitely use such a wonderful grill and tailgating set!

    December 10, 2015 at 8:30 pm
  12. Julie

    I’d give this grill to my Uncle Jon! He gives each of his nieces and nephews a very nice grill for a wedding gift, but we’ve never given him one! I’m sure he would love it and share his food with the neighborhood and at tailgates!

    December 10, 2015 at 8:08 pm
  13. Carol D

    I would give this to my son for Christmas. He is a huge Carolina Panthers fan. He is always saying how he wants to host a tailgate but never has time to get the gear together. I can’t think of anyone who would love it more!

  17. Susie Carlson

    I would gift this to my husband who is just learning to grill and loving it. He is beginning to experiment with recipes and techniques. This would be perfect!

    December 10, 2015 at 1:48 pm
  18. Sandy Vincent

    I would give it to my bestest friend, Roy Gravil. He has seen me through a lot and helped me this year when I had no help. He is one of the biggest supporters of our Western Kenticky University Hilltoppers., Conference USA Champions…. We are going “bowling” in Miami against South Florida in two weeks…. Go Toppers

    well, I believe I would wrap it up and give it to myself this Christmas.
    I never get myself anything, and this year, I think I deserve a gift!!!

    I’d give this to my son. I was planning on giving him Aaron Franklin’s guide to grilling for Christmas. This would be the great big cherry on top!

    December 10, 2015 at 11:26 am
  21. Shayna Sanders

    I would gift this to my ❤️… He would flip!

    December 10, 2015 at 10:09 am
  22. paffrathmkd

    I would gift it to my son-in-law whose grill is on it’s very last leg, Literally! It is propped up on bricks! HA! He would think he had “died and gone to heaven” if I won this for him!

    December 10, 2015 at 9:52 am
  23. Janice Gallaway

    I would gift this to my son who just graduated from Texas State University and loves to go back and see his old buddies and school. He has moved to Houston and loves to go with his dad to Texans games as well as University of Houston games so I know he would really use this set and LOVE it.

  30. Laura

    My husband would love this! He’s mastered the grill for meats and veggies, but he doesn’t have a smoker or the awesome accessories. These would be such a great addition to his outside cooking collection.

    December 10, 2015 at 5:57 am
  31. Karen Kasica

    I would give this to my AMAZING boyfriend, he’s earned it! This man never had kids, (personally, I think they scare him, lol) but when I landed in the hospital he stepped up and took care of my kids for the entire 20 days, getting them off to school, helping with homework, and most impressively, cooking for them every night! Being a typical male he was more comfortable using the grill rather than the stove and he managed to cook them deliciously healthy meals on the beat up, rickety old grill I had in the backyard!! I’d love to win this for him, but either way, he’s getting one for Christmas!!! 🙂

    December 10, 2015 at 3:28 am
  32. Sherolyn Bishop

    I would love to win this for my son who is a newlywed. He doesn’t have a grill yet and he would use it everyday!

    December 10, 2015 at 2:13 am
  33. Kris Foster

    I would give this gift to my fiancé Steve because he needs lots of practice grilling! He is so green at grilling that he never owned a grill until last year AND he’s 46 years old! I had to talk him into buying one when we bought our first house last year. When we have friends over for a barbecue he makes them grill the food!
    I have reactive airway disease and am not able to grill. I could not live without grilled food. This is such a cool grill and by choosing me to win you will help me motivate Steve into wanting to grill. He would love this gift for Christmas and would want to use it for our next tailgating party at Gillette Stadium. Steve is a huge footie (soccer) fan so what a better way to ease him into grilling than the atmosphere of tailgating before a watching his favorite team play!

  34. Rosalyn

    I would love to have this as a BIRTHDAY gift! I would give to my son, Tanner, who LOVES to tailgate! I guess this would be a Christmas/Birthday gift as he was born on CHRISTMAS DAY! Bless his heart…..he surely deserves this for having to share his birthdays for 26 years!

    December 10, 2015 at 12:47 am
  35. Mk Poff

    i would give this gift package to my sister’s nephew [and his wife]. They love to grill, and the husband loves football–especially The Cowboys. This gracious couple includes my sister and me into their family Christmas, because we have no other family around. ;0

    December 10, 2015 at 12:35 am
  36. Livivua

    I would gift it to my uncle who has a grill one it’s last leg literally but he loves it and don’t won’t to upgrade himself but I think if one was gifted to him he would cherish it especially from me and his kids ( my cousins. ) would stop making fun if him

    My husband has been cooking on our charcoal grill for nearly 20 years. We have replaced the grate and have been saying for the past 5 years we are going to get a new grill, but we love that old grill. This would be the perfect reason to finally have a retirement celebration for our old faithful grill. I’m sure my husband would be thrilled beyond words.

    December 9, 2015 at 11:42 pm
  38. Jenn H

    For my Daddy!

    December 9, 2015 at 10:52 pm
  39. AngelaS

    I’d be a tad selfish and gift it to me. I do not have an outdoor grill.

    December 9, 2015 at 10:47 pm
  40. susitravl

    My nephew would love this! He is the chef of the family.

    December 9, 2015 at 8:56 pm
  41. LaLa

    So my fiancé keeps bragging about how, “he can cook anything on a grill”. He says, “all he needs is a good grill and some grilling accessories” I guess ya’ll can see where this is going… As my Daddy always said, “put your money where your mouth is.”

    December 9, 2015 at 7:57 pm
  42. gina

    I would like to give this package to my son. He has been very interested in grilling. wants to try different things. Also he loves sports. What a surprise it would be.

    December 9, 2015 at 6:47 pm
  43. James Osier

    Since I’m the one that knows how to use fire to cook, it goes to me. Please. Since it’s 75F here in Texas today, perfect grilling weather for Christmas looks like a distinct possibility, and who am I to mess with Mother Nature? Christmas brisket will be served.

    December 9, 2015 at 5:57 pm
  44. Lynn Welch

    I would give this to my son, the family grill master. As Southeners, we fire up the grill regardless of the season or temperature. No one would enjoy this fabulous gift more!

    December 9, 2015 at 5:54 pm
  45. Kim G

    To my sweet son! He loves grilling as much as we do and cooks for his little girls!

    December 9, 2015 at 5:35 pm
  46. karen s

    I would absolutely gift this to my hubby. He would be thrilled beyond words to open this on Christmas morning! He’s both the grill master and tailgating fanatic of our family. But would he still appreciate the new slippers I got him as well? Who am I kidding.

    December 9, 2015 at 5:11 pm
  47. Linda Haley

    This certainly goes to my husband. Then we can all enjoy it.

    December 9, 2015 at 4:52 pm
  48. gmcl

    To my son.
