New grill!

Well, as an anniversary gift from us - to us, I bought our first real gas grill yesterday. We spent the morning assembling it, making sure everything was tight, no leaks, etc and christened it this afternoon with some marinated sirloins, eggplant slices and zucchini. Man it was good!

In fact, we enjoyed it so much that about 10pm tonight, we both got the munchies again and threw a couple of burgers and dogs on it just for fun.

I won't say I felt like Tom Hanks in Castaway ("I have made fire!"), but it was pretty cool.

Oh... and for the gadget geeks out there, it was a Perfect Flame 3 burner, 42,000 BTU LP... about $200 from Lowe's hardware.

outstanding gift! takes a few 8sessions* to brek her in properly..but once u get it going they are the best!

just hold of on any kind of fish or foods that will stick till you porperly break in the new grates.
I hated going to weddings. All the grandmas would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped that when I started doing it to them at funerals.
