Traeger
The ultimate in outdoor cooking, a Traeger wood pellet grill is more than a smoker, it’s a lifestyle. There’s even a Traeger Cocktail that mixes up bourbon, grilled lemons and smoked simple syrup – you can find the full recipe here: https://www.traeger.com/recipes/traegerade-cocktail

Offering a set-it-and-forget-it style of cooking, the Traeger regulates temperatures and circulates heat for consistent cooking. Not just for smoked meat, Traegers are great for pizza night, veggies and even baked goods. Basically, anything you can cook in our oven, you can throw on the Traeger.

BONUS: If dad likes to cook, he’ll love the Meater– a wifi, smart meat thermometer that works in any oven, grill, smoker or rotisserie. 

Bourbon Tasting Set
Curated by The Spirit Co., this sampling set includes five one-ounce tasters of American bourbon. Samples could include FEW Bourbon, Sonoma Distilling Co. Bourbon, Woodford, Reserve Double Oaked, Michter's US*1 Bourbon and Jim Beam Single Barrel. Based in the UK, The Spirit Co. provides the best libations from around the world and works with high-end distilleries to source full-sized bottles and tasting sets. If bourbon isn’t dad’s thing, the company offers tastings of gin, vodka, whiskey, rum and more.

A Tee Time
Whether you are enjoying a private golf club– like Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club – or the local public course, hit the links with dad for a memorable Father’s Day. Just remember, Father’s Day is in the middle of summer so be sure to stay hydrated and don’t skip the sunscreen. Gifting dad with a sunburn on his special day isn’t the type of memory we had in mind.
