Don’t just make Dad dinner, treat him to a meat-stravaganza this Father’s Day. Here, F&W’s best recipes for grilled pork, lamb and beef. Because there’s no better way to say “I love you” than with smoky, juicy, charred meat.

1. Throwback Porterhouse Steaks
Butcher Tom Mylan loves making big porterhouse steaks like his father did in the 1980s—brushing them with a simple and delicious combination of bottled barbecue sauce spiked with cheap beer.

2. Sausage Mixed Grill
Any and all sausages are welcome in this delicious feast. We like to use breakfast sausage, weisswurst and either hot or sweet Italian sausage.

3. Grilled Maple-Brined Pork Chops
The sweet and tangy maple-syrup and cider-vinegar brine enhances the natural juiciness of the meat.

4. Sticky Barbecued Beef Ribs
These luscious ribs are crusty, sizzling and outrageously good.

5. Grilled Lamb Chops with Roasted Garlic
A little bit of cumin in the garlicky marinade highlights the lamb’s slightly gamey flavor.

6. Barbecued Brisket and Burnt Ends
Ten hours on the grill with a slather, a rub and a mop give this brisket an extraordinarily robust flavor.

7. Grilled Steaks with Ancho Mole Sauce
Hearty grilled strip steaks are perfect with smoky mole.

8. Citrus and Garlic Pork Shoulder
This marinated bone-in pork shoulder is a spectacular centerpiece for any cookout party.

9. Cumin-and-Coriander Grilled Lamb Ribs
Ribs are the most inexpensive and unsung part of the lamb. Here, they’re rubbed with a flavorful spice mix and basted with an apple cider vinegar and pomegranate molasses sauce.

10. Grilled Short Ribs with Smoky Blackberry Barbecue Sauce
These sticky ribs are brushed with an incredible sauce made with grilled blackberries.

11. Grilled Leg of Lamb with Garlic and Rosemary
Simply flavored with garlic and rosemary, this leg of lamb develops tons of flavor thanks to slow-cooking.

12. Molasses-Smoked Baby Back Ribs
Tim Byres’s no-fail ribs are rubbed with a seasoned beer-based mop.

13. Grilled Lamb Skewers with Mustard Onions
This Senegalese dish is typically made with all parts of the lamb, but it’s also great if you just use the leg.
