    Happy marriage

    Yesterday I received an email from my local meat purveyor with a 20% off coupon because I subscribe to their email special notifications. Informed my wife of 36 years last night of the coupon offer, to which she immediately responded "great, let's get right over there and get some tri-tip for you to cook". She's a keeper.

    Ulterior motive....while your buying tri tip she'll be at the shoe store trying on a $1200 pair of Jimmy Choo pumps.
    She's still a keeper though.
    There's only one store that I know of in my area even carries tri tip and its never marked down so that offers a good score.

      At least in a pinch you could chew on the Jimmy Choo pumps.

    Wives deserve the shoes and accessories for putting up with us.

      My now spouse gave me a chest freezer as an early birthday present. But her dietary heart really belongs to chicken/fish and salads. Back then, when I was eating basically mostly meat, I couldn't decide if I wished she shared my diet, or if I should be happy that the most carnivorous portions were mostly mine.

          My wife is of Scottish decent. She may buy a purse for herself once every 10 years and a pair of good shoes every 20 years, she just doesn't wear her good shoes except at funerals anymore.

          I love her dearly but wish she would spend a little more on herself. After 45 years I don't think I am going to change her.

            RustyHaines congrats on the 36 years and on the Tri-Tip bonus.
            mountainsmoker tell your wife to be careful about wearing her good shoes only to funerals... I did that recently to my Uncle Ron's memorial service; I was walking into the church just 10 minutes before the start of the service, forgot my phone in the car, made a quick about face to go get the phone and the bottom fell out of both shoes! I was 250 miles from home, with no spare shoes, and not enough time to go shopping. I threw the shoes in the trunk of my car (pic) and attended the service in my socks. My Uncle was a retired Division Chief from the Portland OR fire department, so there were a lot of people there that I didn't know; quite embarrassing!

            If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

            slow n sear

            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

            the good one grill

            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.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

            kareubequ bbq smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
