If you’ve got a dad who loves outdoor entertaining, Father’s Day couldn’t be timed any better. Just before peak entertaining season, you can be sure he’ll get loads of use out of any gifts in the months ahead. Here’s a few suggestions for the outdoor entertainer dad this Father’s Day.
BBQ Tools & Accessories
You can’t go wrong with BBQ tools or cooking accessories. Even if he already has a set, some new ones will be sure to make his day. Check out what he has and see if you can add onto it. A set of skewers will let him extend his cooking skills from steaks and snags into yummy kebabs. There’s also a big range of racks and roasters that will turn his BBQ into an outdoor restaurant.
Who’s for pizza?
Nothing beats the flavour of homemade pizza! A pizza oven lets your outdoor chef dad expand his cooking repertoire. A good start is a pizza stone that he can use with his hooded BBQ. It cooks the base perfectly every time! The next step is a gas-fired pizza oven which will sit perfectly next to the barbie. There are also compact pizza ovens that use charcoal as a fuel source if you don’t have gas. The ultimate is a wood-fired pizza oven. It gives you restaurant quality pizza at home.
Just as the slow cooker is the latest way to cook in the kitchen, a smoker is the same for the outdoor chef. The smoker cooks the food over a long period so meats end up very tender. In addition, the wood you use to create the smoke infuses the food with its own flavour. Change the smoking wood and experiment with the different flavours they provide.
Time to relax
Let’s face it, outdoor entertaining is hard work! Somewhere to chill out and relax is the perfect way to end a successful soiree. What better than a hammock! Even when there’s nothing on your social schedule, it’ll still get used as he whiles away a few hours in the afternoon.
