With summer holidays coming up, you'll be going to a lot of barbecues. Hopefully, your dad, or another dad you know, will be manning the grill at said barbecue in order to tinge the meat with that perfect dad char—but if not, make like a couple of 20-something Spokane, Washington jokesters and try to hire a "BBQ Dad" over Craigslist.
The post has been deleted, but to help these guys get their barbecue dad, we will happily reprint what the ad says here:
While most of us know how to operate a grill, none of us are prepared to fill the role of 'BBQ Dad.'
The party will take place June 17th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
What does a "BBQ Dad" do, exactly? Duties include:
Grilling hamburgers and hot dogs (whilst drinking beer, of course)
Bringing your own grill (subject to change, but meat will be provided by party planners)
Referring to attendees as Big Guy, Chief, Sport, Champ, etc.
Talk about dad things like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet, etc.
The perfect candidate will meet the following qualifications:
A minimum of 18 years experience as a father
A minimum of 10 years grilling experience
An appreciation of cold beer on a hot summer day
*Bonus points if your name is Bill, Randy or Dave.
