The Tailgater is our smallest and most portable grill size, but that doesn’t make it small. With a 28″ diameter grill, it is still larger than many charcoal or gas grills you’ll find on the market. It fits perfectly on smaller decks or patios and would be just right for more intimate gatherings.

The 61″ table sits up to 7 people and is available in either stainless steel or Ipe Brazilian hardwood. Select your package and any add-ons below, then add to cart and get cooking!

What makes the Gather Grill special?

The Gather Grill turns your entire evening into an experience. Cooking dinner becomes a shared endeavor, with people sitting around the table enjoying food as soon as it comes off the grill. The grill and griddle is actually a lazy Susan, so the grill can spin all the way around.

The Gather Grill is extremely versatile. Want to slow cook brisket or ribs? You can do that with the grill and the smoker hood. Want to make breakfast over the fire? Cook up those eggs, bacon, and pancakes on the griddle. Grilling steaks? Oh yeah. Baking a pie? Of course! And once the food is all done, you can remove the grill and griddle to create a wide-open fire pit.

Not only is each Gather Grill flexible, but they are also built with the highest quality standards. Built with 304 Stainless Steel and Ipe Brazilian hardwood, these grills are meant to last a lifetime. It’s the last firepit/grill/griddle/smoker you’ll ever need.

A Tabletop Grill, Right-Sized for You

The Tailgater comes with the fire bowl, table, and can accommodate any combination of two grill grates, griddles, or hoods. When the table wings are extended, it brings the total diameter to 61 inches. The adjustable legs allow you to set the table height between 28″-34”. The total weight of the Tailgater is 280 pounds, but it disassembles and reassembles for easier transport.

Get Comfortable

Your Tailgater has room for seven (7) heat-resistant placemats and seven (7) stainless steel coasters. It is an ideal size for getting started with Gather Grills or as an additional grill for camping, the lake house, or as a side table to complement one of the larger grills for your bigger events.

Don’t Underestimate the Tailgater

The Tailgater is our smallest grill, but it is still a mighty outdoor cooking powerhouse. It features 615 square inches of grilling capacity and 307 square inches of baking or smoking space. It can cook up to 25 burgers at the same time. The Tailgater can handle 14 rib-eyes, two Boston Butts, two racks of ribs or one brisket.

Stainless Steel or IPE Brazilian Hardwood?

Tables are available in either Stainless Steel or Ipe Brazilian hardwood. The 304 Stainless Steel gives the grill a rugged, commercial look that will last for years. The steel holds more heat than the Ipe Hardwood, so we recommend using coasters and placemats for a better dining experience. The extra warmth can be great for cooler climates.

Ipe Brazilian hardwood is premium table top and built from one of the best wood products on the planet. It is resistant to rot, weather, and fire. The wood is twice as dense as most other woods and lasts for decades with proper care. Ipe wood also stays cooler than steel and provides a warm and beautiful look to your firepit table.

Tailgater Power-Ups

Want more out of your Tailgater? Consider adding some additional grill bars or grill griddles. You can also add on extra hoods, coasters, placements, and a cover separately. Our Lazy Susan Ipe Cover can provide style and a fully functional table, even when you’re not cooking out!

Everyone gathers around food. it's human nature. but to be able to experience cooking together, eating together, and talking with each other all at the same time is awesome! Plus, so many of us love the outdoors, and the gather grills keep you nice and toasty even on the coolest evenings. I cannot say enough great things about my meals and time spend with friends around the Grills!

I have loved my experience with the Gather Grill. I've flipped pancakes, made pizza, cobbler, and many other things that highlight its versatility. But my favorite thing about it is the opportunity it creates for fellowship. When you can invite people to cook, eat, and relax around the same space, you get more than a grill, you get a centerpiece for hosting and entertaining. I've yet to be disappointed.

Great time around the grill. We cooked fresh tuna, burgers, corn on the cob, and for dessert, chocolate fondue! All on the gather grill. Fellowship, food, and fun times.
