 h1. Dear readers,

 If your dad is anything like mine, he likes to grill. My dad likes to grill so much, he installed an indoor gas grill in the kitchen of my parents' home, with a huge exhaust fan. Thus, grilled T-bones, grilled salmon, and grilled game hens are year-round treats at their house. 

 I know Dad has grilled not only those more-common meats, but also buffalo burgers, wild turkeys, and antelope steaks. They almost always taste amazing.

 However, I am fairly certain my dad has not grilled many vegetables. Andrew Schloss and David Joachim could give him some tips (as this [/books/bookexcerpts/Mastering+the+Grill?utmsource=NL20090617&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=MasteringtheGrillExcerpt&utmcampaign=GrillTime excerpt] from their awesome grilling book, [/books/collections/allbooks/Mastering+the+Grill?utmsource=NL20090617&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=MasteringtheGrillbook&utmcampaign=GrillTime "Mastering the Grill"] shows).

 What would my dad think of grilling [/articles/culinate8/theuniversalgrill?utmsource=NL20090617&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=UniversalGrill&utmcampaign=GrillTime "pizza dough, potatoes, or fresh fruit"]? (Note to self: Ask Dad what he thinks of  [/recipes/collections/Contributors/ellenjackson/roastedstrawberries?utmsource=NL20090617&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=GrilledStrawberries&utmcampaign=GrillTime "grill-roasted strawberries"].) 

 I'm wishing my dad could be around when I try grilling flatbreads this weekend (courtesy of Katherine Miller of the Oregonian). But as it is, I'll just have to channel his steady hand. 
 
 As I try to do often anyway.

 Happy Father's Day — to my great dad and all the other great dads across the land.
