Five rad and random things I found this week

The end-of-week dispatch from PopSci's commerce editor. Vol. 12.

Wolverine BBQ Meat Shredders

My job is to find cool stuff. Throughout the week I spend hours scouring the web for things that are useful or fun or ridiculously cheap. Often times, these choices coalesce into a guide of like items—for example, camping gear to make the Great Outdoors slightly more comfortable or items to get your dad this Father's Day. But I often stumble across some pretty awesome stuff that doesn't really fit into a list. So I made a list for those. The only thing they have in common is that I like them—and think you will too.

Today's lineup: stuff that'll help you kick off the summer.

Slash & Serve Shredded Meat Claws

Get this for your dad, who will enjoy making a scene wailing Smoke on the Water while "strumming" this tiny metal guitar. $15.

S’mores grill

A less messy way to make s'mores. Stack your ingredients in the baskets and safely stick it over your grill or campfire. Is it necessary? Not in the strictest sense. But the promise of making batches of s'mores on the grill is enticing. $12.

BergHOFF Table BBQ Pan
