This Margaritaville Tailgate grill shown requires a standard 2" receiving hitch on the vehicle, because of its rather unique design - it rides on the hitch and swings around for use once parked. Fueled by propane, it has a large grilling surface and ample power with 20,000 BTU's - more than enough for all those tailgate burgers. A great cooking companion for the outdoorsy type.

There are other designs of tailgate grills available too, in various sizes. Tailgate simply refers to the portability of an outdoor grill, but it does suggest a lot of fun with tailgate dinners. Chose one within your gift budget with a capacity that suits their lifestyle.
