Father's Day Menu

Take over the grill this Father's Day. Let Pops kick up his feet with a tasty beverage and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds (hopefully) of his loyal offspring whipping up a veritable feast. Worst-case scenario, you've got an extra hand to extinguish any unwanted fires. Best case? Dad just got a new favorite son or daughter.
