Let’s be honest - what matters beyond expressing love your dad - Father’s Day is about epic barbecues. Dude Food. In fact, the common cultural cliché is: the way to man’s heart is through his stomach.
To help you throw that blow out party, that extends beyond hormel’s and great values - we’ve provided a list of Utah products proven to deliver.
The MEAT: seven days without meat makes one weak.
Springville Meat offers a variety of meat options and can customize your order for whatever occasion. They currently sell beef, pork and lamb and if
you’re an avid hunter and can supply your own meat, Springville Meat can custom process your meat exactly to your needs.
This weekend, consider their 50 lb Budget Package. It will be the gift that keeps feeding dad throughout the summer. This package includes: 20 lbs beef pot roast, 20 lbs lean ground beef, 5 lbs beef pork chops, 2 lbs beef stew meat, 3 lbs pork sausage. And its only $199.
You can view more prices of meat if you’re looking to buy in bulk or individual cuts.
Not everyone likes a burger, so you need a good alternative to feed the masses. Colosimo Sausage is a popular Salt Lake native that produces the finest Italian sausages and bratwursts.
With eight difference sausage and five bratwursts flavors to pick from, no one will be left out from enjoying your epic Father’s Day party!
Colosimo’s Sausage is available in various grocery stores around the state for $5.50 a package.
Seasonings and Sauces: Variety's the very spice of life, That gives it all its flavor.
Now you’ve got your meat, but how is it going to transform into the most memorable meat ever known to man? By using local seasonings and sauces, of course.
Snap Daddy’s Barbecue Sauces are sure to make your tastes buds go wild! Whether you prefer your sauce sweet, smokin’ hot, or the original flavor you remember as a child, Snap Daddy’s takes that sauce and creates a savory flavor that is unforgettable.
Bottles of these sauces go for $6.50 a bottle (online), and a little less at the local market; but with all that meat you’ll be serving up, you better stock up on as much as you can to feed all those hungry neighbors.
So you’ve got your meat, your sausages, and the sauces. Sounds like one heck of a party! So while the adults kick back with a beer to socialize, let the kids get a sugar high with Bandit Beverages and Fat Boy Ice Cream.
Kid Friendly Beverages and Desserts:
Lest you forget, if it's Father’s Day that probably means they’ll be kids (young or old) hanging around. So why not serve something that brings out the memories and the talk of the good ‘ole days?
We’d recommend Bandit Beverages – a fun , hand-bottled sodas are sure to bring the flavor grandpa remembered as a kid. Plus they contain no artificial sweeteners or chemicals. Flavors include: Ironport (traditional and cherry), lime, pumpkin spice, cherry limeade, and caramel apple.
