Grill master Jamie Purviance joins the party with recipes and grilling tips for your Father’s Day cookout: Beer Can Chicken, Beef Tenderloin with Seared Mushrooms, and a Pineapple Upside-Down Cake cooked on the grill. Plus, two notable red wines to try (one is a blend aged in bourbon barrels, and one is great with grilled foods). And an expert explains how to shuck oysters like a pro. John Bertino, chief oyster shucker at the Oyster Club in Mystic, CT, shares some laughs and explains the art of oyster shucking. For dessert: an absurdly easy recipe idea for three-ingredient espresso ice cream you can make without a machine.
