Weber 3751001 Genesis E-320 Propane Gas Grill

The Weber 3751001 Genesis E-320 Propane Gas Grill is Amazon's top-rated gas barbecue and it is the barbecue that my husband would love to receive this year for Father's Day.

It features:

Three main burners with 42,800-BTU and a side burner with 12,000-BTU.
A large cooking area (637 square inches.)
Easy start-up with an electronic ignition.
A Thermometer.
Grates fashioned from porcelain-enameled, cast-iron
Six tool holders.
A steel frame.
A Weber cookbook.
A 2 to 25-year limited warranty.

More important than those simple facts might be some of the reviews from the Amazon customers who have purchased and LOVE the Weber Genesis gas grill:

"This piece is quality! Quality! Quality! It is a TANK! If this unit was a SUV - it would be a Hummer! The controls are easy to use & precise. The cooking is even with no chance of flare-ups. I have grilled, done a rotisserie, and even baked a jumbo chicken in it - it is a dream." ~~ Richard Delhaie

"I love owning products that are near the top of their class, yet not much of what I own falls into that category. I'm usually a 'value' buyer - I buy reasonable quality stuff at a reasonble price; rarely do I opt for the high end with no consideration to cost.   So this time I did just that: choosing to pay $600 plus for this grill when alternatives existed in the $180-$250 dollar range. We're only a family of four, occasionally have visitors, live in the Northeast so our season isn't very long. Why?

Well after putting it together today, and using it for the first time, I know why. I bought it because the assembly instructions were perfectly clear and understandable; because everything fit together like Lego(tm) - as advertised - with close tolerances, high quality components everywhere, even the small details like nylon washers to minimize marring and corrosion. I bought it because it has nice thick baked on powder coat to minimize rust. Its clear someone out there 'thinks' about this process of grilling, and they work at Weber." ~~ Denis Kefallinos



"Bottom line: great grill, and excellent customer service for both Amazon (as usual) and Weber! Thank you, thank you, thank you!" ~~ The Critic

I think that Amazon customers are a fantastic source of information about a product since they provide reviews from 'real' people who have actually used the product. You can read the 66 five-star Amazon customer reviews for yourself by clicking right here. If you already are familiar with the Weber Genesis, you probably won't be surprised. If this is your introduction to this grill, you might be blown away.

Amazon will ship this to your front door for FREE plus, they have reduced the price from $849.00 to $699, a $150 savings for you. If you are shopping for a new grill and want one that will stand up to your (or his) expectations, Weber's Genesis is a great choice. Presenting this one to Dad for Father's Day would be an amazing and unexpected surprise.

Weber's Way to Grill: The Step-by-Step Guide to Expert Grilling

When I was researching my page about barbecue aprons today I discovered a sizzlin' hot BBQ cookbook called Weber's Way to Grill: The Step-by-Step Guide to Expert Grilling.

Only infrequently does a cookbook garner a mostly five-star rating from Amazon customers the way Weber's Way to Grill has.  Receiving more than 60 five-star reviews makes it, in my mind, a top-rated barbecue cookbook and adds it to the list of top-rated Weber's cookbooks.

My 16-year old son, who sometimes is my King of the Grill, may be receiving a copy of this cookbook for his birthday. I think that he who loves to BBQ and who constantly wants to know the PROPER way to grill the foods that we prepare, would enjoy perusing a copy of this book along with a King of the Grill barbecue apron. I think he would put it to good use and our whole family would benefit!

Amazon customer reviewers said things like,

"This book includes all of the basics of grilling with charcoal or gas, complete with lots of pictures so you can see exactly how to set up the grill for the type of food you will be grilling and what the coals should look like. How to use the vents, how to use a rotisserie and needed tools and equipment." ~~ D. Bucci

"Folks just plain like good food with that just off the grill flavor. I know this from experience, and I am just as confident that folks who buy and use "Way to Grill" will experience the deep personal satisfaction of placing flavorful food in front of friends and family." ~~ John G. Gleeson

"Way to Grill gives you everything you could possibly need to take your grill beyond burgers and hot dogs. The recipes are relatively easy to make, and almost always call for common items. But more importantly, there's some emphasis on technique. In all likelihood, this is as close as you're going to get to learning how to grill, without standing next to someone who will teach you." ~~ Kevin Nicholls

Weber's Way To Grill is a solid gift choice for anyone who likes to grill.  Add a BBQ apron and you will create the perfect gift set for anyone who loves to BBQ or for anyone who wants to learn how. This would make a great Father's Day gift for any Dad who loves to grill, wouldn't it?

The Melissa and Doug Play Money Set, A Top-Rated Educational Toy

A wonderful discovery I made recently is the Melissa and Doug Play Money Set. It is perfect for your little ones to learn all about counting money.

It will not be just a learning toy though as your child will use this money over and over again as he sets up shop in your house. He can create a grocery store, a restaurant, a gas station or even a concession stand like we had at our children's movie themed party. The sky is the limit; who knows what your children will dream up!

They will use this 'loot' for lots of fun and they will not even know they are learning. They will be adding, subtracting and shopping before you know it. This Melissa & Doug money play set is recommended for children three years old and up. It arrives as a packaged kit and contains dollar bills from ones to hundreds and coins all neatly stored in a wooden cash drawer with lid. It is much, much better than the cardboard coins that children often have to play with.

A seven-year old Amazon customer reviewer said, "he loves it, he wouldn't change a thing about it and it is perfect."  What more could you ask?

Fun Tableware! Invite Some Ants To Your Picnic!

A summer dinner is even more fun with some fantastic dinnerware or accessories like this red gingham and ant earthenware serving platter.  Piled high with hot dogs or sandwiches, it will add a lot of summertime fun to your picnic table. 

This 16 inch by 11 inch oval platter features a red and white gingham pattern and a hand-painted ant design. A round serving platter is also available.

Boston Warehouse also features this checked pattern in a three-piece serving bowl set, a condiment set, a plate set and they even have an ant-shaped salt and pepper shaker.


These red and white dishes are a lot of fun, positively brilliant for summer entertaining. I would be serving my best-ever glazed baked ham on the platter and my best-ever Hawaiian potato salad in one of the serving bowls.  Naturally, you can use the pieces however you wish.

I was thrilled to see more additions to the ant collection this year on Amazon. Don't forget that Amazon offers FREE shipping on orders worth $25 or more.





Whatever you choose to serve on these pieces, they are sure to inspire a smile. The Boston Warehouse collection would be a top-rated gift choice for anyone who loves entertaining in the summer or for anyone who loves and collects ants!

Red and White Gingham Tablecloth

There's nothing that says summertime to me more than a red and white gingham tablecloth and I know from experience that they are not always the easiest tablecloths to come by.  I was, therefore, very pleased to find this one on Amazon. It is perfect for my summer dinners.

This tablecloth features the classic red-and-white checks that you are looking for and will set the scene perfectly for any casual country dinners and backyard picnics that you are planning. I guess it would be fun, too, for a western, cowboy or farm-themed party.

It is made of a 100 percent cotton, machine washable fabric and is a rectangular-shaped cloth, which measures 60 inches by 84 inches.  If you would like to assemble a complete set, matching napkins are available, too.

Jessie Moris, an Amazon customer reviewer, says that this tablecloth is "the perfect tablecloth for tailgating and parties. Good quality. Good weight. Washes VERY well. Fantastic." Amazon customer reviews are a great way to judge the quality of products you are considering buying online.

Amazon has this DII tablecloth nicely discounted at 30 percent off. PLUS Amazon offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more so, this tablecloth and the napkins, together would ship for FREE. 

Definitely a great way to set the scene for your summertime gatherings!
