Flipping BBQ with Faison! Donald Faison jumps from role to role on set, but sometimes the actor loves just kicking back with his buddies for a grill out. The Exes star told Us Weekly about cooking for his wife CaCee Cobb and their children, and what he'll be up to this Father's Day weekend.
When not running after his 22-month-old son Rocco or taking care of newborn daughter Wilder, 2 months, Faison supports the National Pork Board — and brings his own recipes to the table!
"It is a no-brainer that we partnered together. I have been learning how to grill for about 15 years and I had a couple of recipes that I was good at," the Scrubs alum, 40, told Us. "It's always great to grill out with people. And when [they] asked me if I wanted to participate I was like, 'Yes please.'"
He added: "I grew up in New York City in an apartment building, a high rise apartment building for that matter, and so if we were to grill out on the balcony, it was illegal. The neighbors would complain, so nobody ever really got a chance to do that."
Luckily, his move to sunny L.A. gave him more options. He had more space, bought a cook book, and got to work. For the perfect (and tastiest #grillpork!) chop, he recommends 145 degrees on a digital temperature for medium rare and 160 degrees for medium.
The Clueless star could very well be making his own meal for Father's Day, but he doesn't mind keeping busy. He doesn't have much choice anyway! "I would love to relax, but we’ve got a newborn at home and that ain’t happening so why fight it," he joked.
"It's me and my wife and our kids for sure," he said of his plans. "If I am lucky, I’ll see my other kids." (The star is also dad to four children from previous relationships.)
No matter what, Faison is just happy to be spending time with his loved ones. And who knows, maybe he will take some notes for the next Mother's Day.
"CaCee is the sweetest person on the planet. She always does sweet things for me," he gushed to Us. "I’m the one who’s still in training. She nails it every time."
