Last night I received a Fathers Day (& Christmas) gift a few days early. I have been casually looking at grills for the new house, but it was not that high on the list, with all of the other things we are needing to remodel the house. I got home ahead of Angie (for a change) last night and was going through the mail when the phone rang. It was my little shoe princess, telling me to meet her on the back porch "in 3 minutes". I went up stairs to change out of my work clothes and came back down just in time to see the Dog limo
backed up to the porch. Angie was standing next to the Suburban motioning me outside. She popped open the back door of the truck. It was filled end to end with a massive box (still could not see exactly what it was). Seconds later though, it was all very clear!! I was staring at 300+ lbs; 85,000 BTU's; ...of Stainless Steel outdoor cooking perfection!
We unloaded it just as some very dark clouds started to roll in. We needed to run a few errands, so we left it boxed up on the back porch and headed out. Remember that feeling you had as a kid when you opened a Christmas gift that required batteries, and the gift giver rudely
didn't think to buy any to go along with your new toy!? And of course being Christmas, there were no stores open to get any. So you could not play with your new toy, just stare at it. Maybe it was good that we were not home last evening, in the rain, staring at the "Gucci Grill" (as it's been named) just sitting there, alone - on the porch, beckoning - calling me. Angie is pretty smart some times - OK, most of the time, getting us out of the house! Tonight however, I will race home from work to assemble and play with my new toy. We picked up some Swordfish and Tuna steaks last night to grill up for dinner, and my parents are coming over this weekend for steaks, so the "Double G" should get a good workout!
