Father’s Day is just around the corner. And maybe your father is stocked up on “kiss the cook” aprons and plastic barbecue forks that light up like a Christmas tree when they detect that your steak is burned appropriately. If so, here are five gift ideas from the Convivial Boar for your grilling father:
1. Digital Meat Thermometer
The one that I use is made by Thermopen and costs around $100. They are available online or at most kitchen stores —I bought mine at Eggshells in the Heights. This thermometer will boost your father’s confidence as he can instantly tell if his creations have reached the desired level of doneness.
2. Blue Moon Disk Pan
For the adventurous Dad looking to add some variety to his outdoor cooking regime, this pan is a sure hit. For more information on using this pan and where to get it click “here.”
3. Husky Tool Box
For the father who grills on location, this box is a handy way to keep his tools and spices at hand. Costs around $20 at Home Depot.
4. Grill Baskets
I use a variety of these in different shapes and sizes for grilling vegetables, seafood, and wings. Each costs between $10 and $40 and are available at most any cooking store.
5. PK Grill
And if your father is looking for a new grill this year, I recommend the PK Grill. This grill is a versatile charcoal grill made of cast aluminum which efficiently holds the heat without adding too much weight. Its shape even allows for indirect grilling and smoking.
