FATHER’S DAY: Equip Dad for the grill

There are a number of cool accessories to help your grillmaster create the best meals

With Father’s Day right around the corner, you can go back to the old standby tie and golf tees package or you can step up to something that will come in handy every time your dad fires up the grill.

Grilling experts have some suggestions for every type of grill master, so take a look at these:

The Neat Freak — For the dad that likes to keep the grill spotless before and after a meal, a heavy duty grid brush is a must. Recommended is one with a grime guard. It will keep the grill clean as well as your grill master. Pair it with a biodegradable grill cleaner and let dad worry about cooking, not cleaning.

The Family Man — Trying to balance adult meals with kid-friendly choices can be tricky, but burger presses and grill baskets make it easy to accommodate everyone. Sliders are the perfect size for little hands, and a basket that can grill at least six at time will help keep hungry mouths fed. A stuffed burger press is perfect for creating unique flavour combinations for the adults. Try Greek burgers stuffed with feta cheese, roasted red pepper, and spinach.

The Entertainer — Items designed for both cooking prep and presentation are great gifts for an outdoor entertainer. A jalapeno pepper rack adds grill appeal to this popular appetizer and a pizza stone helps backyard chefs prepare and serve an authentic pizza pie.

For the dad who has it all, explore the wide range of rubs, marinades and wood chips available to provide hours of flavour experimenting.
