Father’s Day is the perfect time to show Dad just how much you appreciate him, and what better way to do it than with a big meal cooked on the grill? But before you throw on those ribs, kebabs, or ears of corn, consider a few of these barbecue tips.

Source Your Ingredients
When it comes to grilling, your options are endless. Whether you choose to cook up ribs or chicken, salmon or shrimp, or colorful vegetable kebabs, almost anything tastes better after it’s spent some time on the grill.  

Your job is to find out what Dad wants and then get the best product out there. It's a special occasion, so don't hold back from buying the best cut or the freshest catch from the store.  

Marinate in Minutes
Instead of marinating proteins and vegetables in the fridge for hours, prep in just minutes with FoodSaver. With the FoodSaver FM3920 2-in-1 Manual Operation Food Preservation System, you'll need less than a half hour to marinate almost anything for the grill—simply put your proteins or vegetables in a resealable vacuum sealer bag, seal it up, and place it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to get grilling.  

The best gift for dad might be an opportunity to grill a quality cut.

Seal and Save After Dinner
After you’ve finished dinner, vacuum sealing your food helps to keep it as fresh as it was when it came off the grill. Food Storage Bags and Containers help lock in the flavor of everything you cooked and are also a great way to preserve freshness in any leftover food that didn't make it to the grill. Those uncooked meats, seafood, and vegetables will be safe from freezer burn and fresh for another special occasion, while your other grilled and vacuum sealed leftovers will be just as flavorful tomorrow.

With FoodSaver Vacuum Sealers and accessories, surprising Dad on Father's Day takes minimal prep work, and sealing up those foods for later is the perfect way to turn his special meal into the gift that keeps on giving.
