Time for a new propane grill…

Gave it a few weeks, and last night Heidi came in and simply said “we need a new grill, the tents on that old one are just about gone”.  Since I came to the same conclusion a few weeks ago, thinking it might be time to retire/replace the old one – have been out on the Internet looking for something affordable that would be an upgrade and home in on a “Top Rated Item” at Sam’s Club – told her I think this one is the best “bang for the buck”:

Hybrid Grill from Sam's Club

I’m kind of excited about the idea, hopefully there will be some follow-up articles and pictures on this decision.  The only real complaint in their comments has to do with difficult assembly – but between Jeff and I, pretty certain that won’t be a problem.  We shall see. 8)

Oh by the way, while I was typing this, Jeff was out in the rain pulling in a mess of ribs from the smoker.  We do LOVE our outdoor cooking! 😀

Well, it is now the following Sunday afternoon – we pulled the trigger and will see how this works out. (Picture taken with my cell phone):
