Uncle Steve's Italian Specialties
Actor, father and NYT bestselling author, Steve Schirripa, has developed a line of gourmet pasta sauces, in honor of his late mother: Uncle Steve’s Italian Specialties. His organic pasta sauce is now available in stores across the country in major supermarkets such as Whole Foods, Albertsons, Stop and Shop, Shop Rite, health food stores, and mom and pop shops.

Sometimes simpler is better, especially when it comes to cleaning things like the grill. So when you’re making your dad’s bbq gift basket, consider adding Brillo Steel Wool Soap Pads instead of a grill brush. What’s wrong with a regular grill brush? Grill brushes are dangerous because bristles can fall off and be left behind on the grate. The bristles have the potential to get caught in the food and are consumed by some people ending up in numerous hospitalizations per year [see the CDC announcement]. Using a Brillo pad and a little water, people can scrub their grill grate clean and wash it off completely before grilling. This prevents the hazard of potentially swallowing grill bristles and keeps your family and friends safe.
Brillo Steel Wool Soap Pads
Use steel wool soap pads to easily scrub outdoor garbage cans
Grill brushes are dangerous (see above)
Using a Brillo pad and a little water, people can scrub their grill grate or stove top clean and wash it off completely before grilling or cooking

Camerons Stovetop Smoker and Good Cooking Grilling Planks
If your Dad is all about anything barbecue the Camerons Stovetop Smoker should be on top of his wish list for Father’s Day! Smoke-cooking is a healthy way to infuse flavor without the use of fats, salts, oils, or added calories.

Stovetop smokers are perfect for smoking small pieces of food that might get lost in a large outdoor smoker. Another advantage of stovetop smokers is that they run at a higher temperature than most outdoor smokers, cutting your cooking time in half.
Camerons Stovetop Smoker can smoke large and small items on any heat surface, transforming ordinary vegetables into delicious main courses. This stainless-steel smoker also doubles as a steamer, giving you two great cookers in one product!

Don’t forget the grilling planks! These all natural wood planks allow seafood, meat, chicken and vegetables to roast slowly, basting in their own juices and create a subtle, smokey flavor. No fat or oil needs to be added as the moisture from the plank keeps your food juicy & flavorful with no nutrient loss! Comes in cedar and alder flavors, with instructions and tasty recipes inside the sleeve. Can be used two to three times before discarding. Shop: Cameronsproducts.com
