Spice Barn Butcher’s Grind Black Pepper
The best steak houses season meat with very coarsely ground pepper, adding a touch of heat to every bite. Apply it liberally before cooking, along with good, coarse sea salt. Dad won’t believe the difference. And with this monster jar, he’ll never worry about running out.
To buy: $12 for 17 ounces, spicebarn.com.
