Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy , Pac. Congratulations.

a) did you pick up a nylon/ all weather cover for her. I highly recommend one of these, even if she's sitting on the porch.

b) everytime we go to the Sears or Home Depot or some-such, I 'bout give myself whip-lash when my neck swivels in the direction of the grilling dept. Then my feet lead me over there, until I am reminded we didn't come in to look at grills today. Sigh Drool. That's probably why they have one of those Caution /Yellow / Wet Floor triangle signs permanently planted in that aisle.

c) spiders. eww. Poke under the porch w/ a broom where you expect to crawl. ugh. Wear a bee hat and some welding gloves. or something.

Congrats Pac! Looks like a beauty, I bet you are gonna love her! The natural gas is a real convenience (no more running out of propane at just the wrong moment) We have two areas on our deck that are plumbed for our Jenn Air grill which looks a lot like your new gal! Hope you have many happy grilling years!

That's a good idea. My other grill was really gunky between the cooking residue, dust and dog hair Of course, that was only on the outside

Thanks Somebunny. The natural gas will be a big convenience for sure.

That's the one I have. Excellent choice, Pac! You won't regret it. As for staying shiny, about once a month I clean up external residue and such with a light detergent solution - it still looks good as new.

I also highly recommend picking up the Weber nylon cover (available on Amazon, and other online retailers) to help protect it from the elements.

Thanks guys.
And the cover will make a good birthday/Christmas suggestion.

I am 8'-4" closer to getting it piped in. As usual, my project is growing branches. I am so close to my electric dryer with the new line that I decided to replace an el with a tee in case I want to get a gas dryer in the future. So I am on standby waiting to shoot back down to the hardware store for a tee and a plug.
The outside access is removed to the crawlspace and I just might be able to work it under the crawlspace from the access rather than crawling under. I'm pretty happy about that. What I'm not happy with is there's a ground bee's nest just a few feet away under a bush. I can't see the hole to dust them, but if I don't move they settle back down. I swear my house is a bee/hornet magnet.

So instead I impulse purchased this one. Take a good look. This is the last time she will be this clean
Attachment 18400

I already reconfigured the gas lines in my basement and started another line to feed her. Tomorrow I should be able to get it through the block wall, under the porch crawlspace (spiders, eww ) and up through the deck.
And then it's trying to decide what to cook on her first. Maybe a hot dog
Oh how quickly we forget those who have gone before...
She needs a name. I vote for Big Bertha!

Get yourself a bee keepers smoke pot. It puts them to sleep.
