Last night I was so excited to come home to this on my front porch...
MY WEBER GAS GRILL!!! WOO HOO! I wanted to move it to the porch immediately and start putting it together. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that would more than likely not be possible until Scott got home when I saw this warning:
I was correct. Turns out the dang thing weighs 180 pounds!?!?! (Which also happens to be my one rep dead lift max, so maybe I could have done it. Kidding.) I have a feeling Amazon Prime free delivery paid for itself 3 times over with this delivery.
I'm thrilled to finally have a grill that I can fire up and will be ready to go within minutes. And before all of you charcoal enthusiasts turn your noses up at me, let it be known that charcoal grills are my preferred method of grilling from a flavor perspective. In fact, the only grill I have owned and cooked on for the past 8 years is a classic Weber charcoal grill, and I love it. My dream grill is the Big Green Egg, and you can bet your ass I'll have one in the near future. Saving my pennies.
Unfortunately, pulling out the charcoal and firing up the grill is too cumbersome and time consuming on a busy weeknight. From now on, I'll save the charcoal for the relaxed and slow paced weekends and rely on the gas grill for quick and easy weeknight meals.
Prepare yourselves for an obnoxious amount of grilled recipes.
