It’s a little cliche to gift a grill for Father’s Day, but let’s be real: Who cares about being cliche! A grill is a crowd-pleaser that allows Pops to try out new ways to cook some of his tried-and-true recipes. We found a grill that doubles as a smoker and is almost 20% off at Amazon. Even better, it arrives to your doorstep before Father’s Day. No more running around trying to find a good gift for Dad.

Ditch the gas and charcoal and enter the world of wood-pellet grills, which gives food a smoky, wood-fired taste. Precise temperature control takes the guesswork out of cooking, and WiFIRE tech connects the grill to the Traeger app to control it anywhere. The Ironwood 885 isn’t a one-trick pony: you can smoke, bake, roast, braise, and barbecue on the same grill. Porcelain grill grates makes for easy clean-up so Dad can get back to watching his beloved procedurals, whether it be Law & Order or the Stanley Cup playoffs. 885 square inches of grilling space fits ten chickens, seven rib racks, or nine pork butts (Insert that one I Think You Should Leave sketch). The built-in meat probe means all your meats will be thoroughly cooked coming off the grill. It’s an investment piece that will keep on giving for years and years.
