It’s Father’s Day, and you want to do something a little nice for the dad in your life. Maybe that’s your dad, who is long past being embarrassing and is honestly kind of cool. Maybe it’s your partner. Maybe it’s a father figure who has had an important impact on you. Whoever it is, if that dad likes to grill, holy crap, do we have a Father’s Day menu for you.
Before you get started, we’ve gone ahead and assumed you already know how to put together a hot dog. The same goes for a burger. And we’re also sure you know how to crack open a beer (unless you’re under 21, in which case I’m sure dad will be plenty happy with a root beer.)
Instead of going back to basics, we turned to some exciting, fresh, probably-haven’t-slapped-that-on-a-grill-before recipes that will open up a whole new world for your grill-devoted papa. Who knows. Maybe he’ll even steal one of these recipes for the next summer barbecue.
