‘Cue up Father’s Day with grills and grilling gadgets
One thing most dads will say is a sure-fire hit is any grilling tool – or if you’re feeling generous, a new grill. Fire up this Father’s Day with grilling gifts he’ll love. Whether it’s a new grill, accessories, or some quality cuts of meats, we’re sure Dad will love these ideas.
It’s not an easy choice: You have your gas grill vs. the charcoal grill. Without a doubt, most grilling experts prefer the latter. But guess what? A gas grill is a lot easier to use throughout all the seasons. Lighting charcoal in rain and snow is a nearly impossible task.
You’ll want to consider size when grill shopping. If he’s a fan of something like beer-can chicken, look for a grill tall enough to fit the chicken. If he loves to slow-cooked brisket, consider a larger grill that will also serve as a smoker.
Grills to love
You can’t go wrong with Weber, the best-selling grills out there. The Weather Performer Deluxe 22 is a charcoal grill with a gas ignition system that will light those coals at the touch of a button. Plus, we like the look of the copper top. Weather Performer Deluxe 22 Charcoal Grill, $399, acehardware.com
