    Finally got my big-boy grill

    Never had the money before to buy a Genesis grill, but I finally got my Genesis II delivered today. I can't wait to fire her up tomorrow - didn't get a chance today on the account of weather. I got a Genesis II SE-335 and, man, is she a beaut. The manager from Ace delivered my grill and left the receipt on my kitchen table, right where the wife who, used to me buying $300 grills, but foolishly told me to "buy whatever will make your heart happy" would find it. So, apparently, we're going shopping for a new patio dining set tomorrow.

    Quid pro quo at it's finest.


      That sounds awesome!

      What are you gonna cook first? Steaks?

      We will need pics.


        Congrats on that!


          Congrats on your new cooker and congrats to your wife on the new patio dining set.


            Congrats! Can’t wait to see what the cooks coming off of it


              Sorry. The rule is, no pics, it never happened. Congratulations on your new grill, if in fact it actually exists.


                Weber’s Genesis line is a good one for sure … congrats!


                  Hey it's only money, you can always print more.

                    That’s always been my attitude.

                  Congratulations! You will get alot of enjoyment from that new cooker.


                    Congratulations! You will enjoy it! And so glad to hear you were able to support your local Ace Hardware in the purchase as well. My local Ace was forced out of business 10-15 years ago by the construction of a Lowe's and Home Depot (side by side) about 1/4 mile down the road from the Ace. I miss that store.

                    If your wife gets upset at the price tag, just assure you that the "outdoor kitchen" will be used to keep all the heat out of the kitchen during the hot summer months, and get busy preparing delicious meals for her on it.


                      Enjoy your New Weber! Congrats.


                        Always nice to get a new toy, enjoy the heck out of it.

                        My bride has a horsey (little girls never outgrow them), so if we played the trade off game I could pretty much be on a shopping spree everyday!

                          Same thing with our golf membership-- and I don't golf.

                        Congrats! New grills are always fun. But the one you have wanted is extra special!


                          Results of first cook - Sweet Tea Chicken Thighs and Meat Church Honey Hog rub. Man, did it cook good - definitely better than any other grill I've ever owned.

                            If you wanted to send a few of those thighs my way, I wouldn't say no.

                        Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

                        Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                        Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                        Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

                        Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
