Our anniversary is June 1st, Sam's birthday is June 5th, and then there's Father's Day. My husband isn't dumb. He knows those 3 gift giving occasions can add up to serious swag if he plays his cards right.
This was his grill. And it was a very fine grill in its day. Cast iron, serviceable, and certainly up to the challenge of beer can chicken and a yearly turkey. Time took its toll though, and the poor thing is falling apart. Yes, I intend to fix it. It's top notch for smoking.
Oh, as long as I'm back here...
...we have some lovely progress!
If you're considering a new grill, meet the one that we scrutinized for three years. It's the Weber Performer in Apple Green from Crate and Barrel. It has a gas starter and cooks with charcoal, which Sam is addicted to, so we get that wonderful smokey flavor with the quick start convenience.
Charcoal storage is built right in too, so no cumbersome plastic bins will be littering my patio.
Oh, and it's, um, my green.
The price tag was a reasonable $329, and the grilled London broil and shrimp skewers came out superbly.
