I know it’s a bit of a stereotype, but I have yet to come across a guy whose eyes don’t light up when he sees a nice grill in front of him. And Father’s Day is the perfect time to get a new grill. A gift for dad. A kick-off for summer. A reason to entertain on beautiful summer evenings. And a great tool for getting the cooking out of the kitchen.

Kenmore’s new Premium 5 Burner Gas Grill with Side Burner is the ultimate man machine (that moms will appreciate just as much). Four stainless steel burners provide 400 square inches of cooking surface while an integrated ceramic searing burner gives you an additional 208 square inches of cooking area and lets you to get that perfect, seared exterior. What does that translate to in real life terms? When I tested this baby out, it fit 24 hamburgers on one night and more hot dogs than I could count this last weekend.

Other features include:

• electronic ignition

• stainless steel grates

• porcelain cooking surface

• top rack for toasting buns

• sleek black and stainless steel exterior

• 4 rolling castors

• 12,000 BTU side burner

• 803 square inches of total cook space

• double door enclosure for propane tank (not included) with room for other storage

• handles on either side with rings to hang tools

This is a BIG grill and may be too much fire, power and surface area if you’re a small family. But if you’re a big family or a family of big eaters, this BBQ won’t disappoint.  One warning – this BBQ (like most) comes unassembled, and assembly can easily take 1.5-2.5 hours depending on your handiness. So if you’re planning on surprising dad with a finished, assembled BBQ make sure to set aside adequate time. And if you’re jut going to put a big red bow on the box to leave for him to assemble, you might want to get some nice steaks to inspire him to fit together all the pieces and enjoy the fruits meats of his labor.

The Kenmore Premium 5 Burner Gas Grill with Side Burner normally retails for $469.99, but right now it’s on sale for $369.99. Plus the Kenmore website is offering free delivery through a mail-in rebate and 12 months interest-free financing if you purchase the grill on your Sears card. Visit Kenmore.com for more information or stop by your local Sears store to see if they have one in stock.

Happy Father’s Day!
