8 Great Gifts for Grill-Savvy Dads

by in Holidays, June 15th, 2016

Here at Food Network, we think it’s time for a little tough love. So, in the spirit of Father’s Day, we’re here to inform you: Dad does not need another necktie this year. But if he’s the kind of guy who lives for summer — grilling, dinners on the patio, craft cocktails using in-season ingredients — then what he absolutely needs is a game-changing marinade, cocktail mixer or grill tool to take his summer relaxation to new levels of style and sophistication. Not sure where to begin? Check out our top Father’s Day gift picks for dads who fully embrace summer.

PitMaster Grill Tool (pictured above)
If your dad breaks out the grill on the first 50-degree day and doesn’t return it to the garage until the first snow, then this multipurpose grill tool is just the gift for him. The functionality of an entire grill kit is combined into a single, streamlined utensil: a flipper hook for turning food on the grill, an 8-inch chef’s knife for slicing, and even a bottle opener (though we don’t suggest using all three at once!).
