As a hard-working chef with a four-year-old daughter, Jesse Griffiths has yet to truly live it up on Father’s Day, but he has ideas for the holidays to come. “They’ll probably involve pancakes, and fishing,” he says. “It’ll be fun.” In the meantime, the chef at Dai Due, in Austin, Texas, has volunteered to help the rest of us make our plans. Griffiths is a serious outdoorsman who serves venison ceviche and slow-cooked wild boar at his restaurant, and teaches classes in hunting and fishing on the side. He drew upon his experiences both in hunt camp and the kitchen to brainstorm gifts for your own outdoorsy, cast-iron-loving dad. He has field-tested everything on the list below, from a potentially lifesaving pair of boots to a couple of cookbooks that might inspire your old man to fire up the grill.
