I'm not opposed to getting a new grill (so simmer down there Bobby Flay), I'm just kind of in sticker shock I think. Dh wants a good one, one that doesn't have a lot of plastic on the front to break off if it falls over. One that is going to last for a while. This all translates into he wants a really nice grill, $$$. So, I've been making him do his homework in an effort to stall. Which one is better-stainless steel vs. porcelain? Which color, make and model? Which is going to last the longest? Which accessories would he really need? It's all just stalling while I try to wrap my brain around it.
In his research he came across a Weber dealer just around the corner. So, the foodies that we are, we set off on our Sunday drive to find it. We got to the littlest rinky dink hardware store you have ever seen. However, after the maze of fertilizer and rat poison, down the steps and in the basement was an entire showroom dedicated to Weber grills. It was the mecca of grills to be sure, and I considered genuflecting out of respect. However, my two year old did not share my sense of reverence. He instead grabbed a grill brush and tried to best the aliens.
We left with more questions than answers, and more research to do. So the battle rages on. At least we have the color decided upon, I feel that is a huge step in the right direction. :)
