Here we’ve compiled a list of 19 funny grilling aprons for that perfect Father’s Day gift, or summer cookout attire for you.

You can look like you’ve got a six-pack, even if you’re carrying a whole keg. This apron is probably best saved for when you’re grilling with your buddies or the gals.
This isn’t madness or Sparta, which is probably just as well. Intimidate all the lesser mortals into keeping the peace in your backyard with this legionnaire themed apron.
Too often true, though few have the guts to admit it. Grilling is a fine art, and masters take years to master their craft. Most of us, though, can only manage fingerpaintings.
And who can blame you? If the choice is between a good, cold beer, and all the troublesome cogitation… What was I saying again?
This one’s a bit politically charged, but still worthy of a giggle. Most of the guys wearing this are loaded with blanks, anyway.
It’s the truth. The pinnacle of a dad’s achievement is the perfectly grilled dog, brat, or burger. It’s what separates us from the animals.
As double entendres go, this one is pretty direct. Though, taken at face value, it might mean you’re in for a tasty meal.

For your Dad

This apron is maybe a little too honest. It should come with a disclaimer: ‘Casualties not the responsibility of the Grillmaster.”
This apron is another honest assessment of the life of a grillmaster. Cooking outdoors leave means you’re out there with the nature, your only defense the comfort of a cold drink.
A good grillmaster will never admit he’s in over his head, which is why he occasionally needs others to supply the common sense. This apron isn’t just a joke, but also a cry for help.
Animal lovers come in all types. Some like the critters when they’re furry and trotting around. Some like animals best when they’re sizzling on the grill.

Some grillers should wear their aprons at mealtimes, as well as when cooking. A fine, discerning hand at the grill can be a little less delicate when it comes time to chow down.
