The new 'cue

As promised, here's a photo of the new barbecue grill. It took a couple of hours to assemble, but it was not too difficult. The price was very reasonable, probably because it's the end of the season. Or maybe it was because I also looked at Weber grills, which cost about as much as a new car these days.

Three main burners and another on the side (which probably won't get much use).

On Friday, I grilled a nice steak for lunch. The new grill gets hotter faster than the previous one. The steak was done medium-rare and was delicious, but I realize that I have to adjust my cooking methods on the new grill. That won't take too long. I don't know how many more bbq days we have left this season, but I hope there will be a few more. By the end of the month I'll have to cover the grill and put it away for the winter.

  1. Wow! Looks like a super-duper one! Keeping my fingers crossed for some nice barbecue weather for you!

  2. Looks sorta like R2D2 with wings. Enjoy the Q.

  3. Oh, this is excellent! We're working in French 4 right now with present participles and past participle adjectives... and cooking! Plenty of examples here. This will make an appearance 4th hour one day next week ;)

  4. Oh, it is a marvel! I am mad-jealous.

  5. Looking forward to the Menu; can we order online?

  6. That's a very impressive machine. Even in fall and winter, surely you'll have some days when you can whip off the tarp and fire up the grill for a tasty luncheon?


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
