    The gas grill follies.....part 2

    If you missed part 1 of this little tale, you may want to start here. Anywho..somewhat dejected...I'm perusing the aisle of grills in my price range. It's the DIY aisle, as I had planned to assemble the silly thing myself...but I'm still bitter from my experience with Mr. 45000BTU. Most in the range I had set for myself were about what I had before, so no harm, no foul....I'm still a man right? Then I see it......and am confused......I waive the 1st person in a red smock over that I see.....we'll call him dude in red after known as "DIRS"

    Me...I'm confused..isn't that the same unit on display over there for $199.00..this says $169.00.

    DIRS...Oh yeah....that's because it doesn't comes with a tank, the tank is separate for $30.00.

    Me...I don't need a tank, I have 2 at home...

    DIRS...You don't have to buy a tank...

    Me...I don't know...thats still a little more than I meant to spend.

    DIRS...Well you didn't see the sign did you? This is the post 4th of July sale,,,,20% off all gas grills in stock..

    Me...I dunno...

    DIRS...If you buy it today, we'll give you a voucher for a free tank exchange when you need a refill..

    My mind does quick math....$169.00 -20% + 1 free gas exchange.....that makes this gas grill damn near FREE!!! Well no...but it drops the grill well into the $140.00 dollar zone..and..and a free tank exchange...


    As I'm wheeling the cart out to the jeep, I'm absolutely gloating. I'm humming the man know the one..I'm a man!! I bought a grill!!! I'm a man...I'll burn meat!! I digress....

    It's during this time while still enjoying the afterglow of beating the snickering grill, relishing the knowledge and eyeing my jeep as I get closer...a dilemma arises..this is a huge ass box! It's not just a big's a huge box..I mean really really huge....and in hindsite..perhaps I should have cleaned out the back of the jeep, the back of which is still holding the bulk of our camping gear. Houston...We have a problem...

    After several minutes of rearranging camp gear into the back seat....front seat..over hanging between front and back seat..the box..almost..just almost fits....I'm a guy, I know what this means. One more good shove and quick slam of the hatch.....grill is in the back of the jeep.....I'm a happy man, take that Mr. Grill! I notice when climbing behind the wheel, that my coleman lantern no longer has a glass globe...or atleast not a complete one..this is of little consequence.....I have a grill...I'm a man....I must take my bounty to my house and assemble it.....I must revel in todays accomplishment...I drive home singing the man song......

    To be continued...Here in part 3

    Must cook meat NOW! (Though fruit and veggies are good grilled too. Ever grill fresh peach halves? MMmmm. Pineapple too.) I'll be grillin' tomorrow - hopefully you too! I love the smell of propane in the evening . . .

    Well done my love, now lets get raw! *giggles*

    I've never used a gas grill. I've always just used to old fashioned charcoal types. But, Hank Hill has just about convinced me to use clean burning propane.

    I'm so jealous! It's still raining all the time over here.

    I need a break somewhere dry for a while. Perhaps I could slip over for a BBQ! ;)

    I bought Mr SD a BBQ (grill, as you call it) for Christmas the other year and had exactly the same problem when I got it to the car. Men aren't the only ones with the shove and slam manouvre :)

    Burning meat is second only to having meat, on the Scale of Manliness.
