Oh shoot I was looking forward to some good barbeque. I might need a plane ticket too.

Well, you and Paul are quite the drivers LOL. Wont take but two days I think. Just in time for Saturday easy!

It’ll be another year before I’m ready for another road trip😜
May 23, 2018 at 16:20
Yeah, I bet! Well, even if you flew, you would still have a small road trip. Most of the airplanes down this way are crop dusters LOL.

You are a country boy, aren’t you?
May 23, 2018 at 20:16
That is actually very funny, as I am not really. I did almost all of my growing up in the city. I just married a country girl. I am the token city slicker around these parts .

Looks great. What brand is it? What is the crank for on the right? I’m glad to see that it isn’t a gas grill.
May 23, 2018 at 20:20
No sir, no gas for me. It is a Char-Griller brand. Not had one before, so I hope I am not disappointed. The crank is to raise and lower the fire grate. That’s part of what I liked, and the dampers on both sides and the top. I am into temperature controls and most grills are not good at that. She gets her maiden voyage Saturday. Today was just curing the grill. I am excited!

Expecting your review soon. I’ve been a Webber guy for years.
May 23, 2018 at 20:30
Yeah, Weber is really really good. I wanted to buy that and a Weber Kettle grill, but I could not find one anywhere. That is actually the best basic grill on the planet if you want my opinion. The last one I had I paid 10 dollars for it at a garage sale if you can believe that.

I paid a little more than that when we moved back to Cali in 2011. Went to buy the same one for my son for a wedding present last year & couldn’t find the same one. His has a smaller table, but it does have a propane starter for the goals.

Well, I will let you know how it goes. Saturday is just basic steaks, so should not be an issue. I do think the larger cooking area will help there, to keep the temps right for all the different ways people want their steaks. I like mine on the rare side of medium rare, so hot and fast works really good. My wife likes on the well side of medium well, so cant cook hers blazing hot the entire time or she get ashes. Her and her dad…sheesh. Heathens I say. I want to try some chicken or a roast on it, then it’s true colors will come out.

Pardon my ignorance on grill terminology, but what exactly does curing one involve?
I’m a gas grill gal all the way, easy on/off! 😉

Well have you ever used cast iron cookware Tricia? It’s sort of the same concept. You oil everything up and heat for several hours. On cast iron helps it but stick and the cooking grates in this are cast iron. It also cooks off any factory paint smell and stuff.

Oh ok, that makes perfect sense Wally! I’ve done that too on my grills but didn’t know what it was called. Now I know…;)
May 24, 2018 at 09:06
Well there ya go

What is up 1st for the new grill?
May 24, 2018 at 11:16
Well, starting simple. We have a daughter graduating high school and daughter in law graduating Nursing School today, so just some simple Ribeyes Saturday!

This grill is neat, though, and I am going to try some more technically demanding things like roasts and stuff. I will certainly post the results when I do!
May 24, 2018 at 12:35
I’m looking forward to it! Experimenting with a new grill is always a good time!
May 24, 2018 at 12:49
I sure is!
May 24, 2018 at 13:23
I’ll be looking forward to some good bbq posts 🙂
May 24, 2018 at 14:16
People do love food posts lol

Once in a while when I have a very difficult Sunday I like to BBQ alone outside for my family…it’s like a second pulpit, except the result is immediate. You say to the meat, “turn or burn” and you can just flip it over and it will be immediately the case where the problem is avoided. But then I think “I don’t want my people to be dead meat…” and suddenly after that therapeutic time of being just there with God and myself and a grill, I feel renewed from chilling and renewed to be committed back to the ministry.

Now that’s awesome
