Pit Boss Grills is a subsidiary of Dansons, Inc. which was founded in 1999 by Dan Thiessen and his two sons, Jeff and Jordan. Pit Boss Grills is known for their durability and craftsmanship, as well as for their family style and approach to business. From portable grills like the Pit Boss Tailgater, to massive grills like the Pit Boss Austin XL – Pit Boss Grills takes pride in creating whatever the customers (and employees) dream up. Last year, Dansons was awarded EY Entrepreneur of the Year (2017). Today, Pit Boss Grills are the best value per square inch in the market, and pellet grills are the fastest growing segment within that market. Being Bigger. Hotter. Heavier. than the competition at a better value, and constantly striving to improve, are two of the founding principles Pit Boss was built upon. Creating a community around outdoor cooking, backyard barbeques, and neighborhood block parties is an idea Pit Boss is proud to be a part of, and proud to be included in.
