This is now our third new barbeque in the past 4 or 5 years. Hopefully it’s our last for a while.
First of all, when we got back into RVing we bought one called a Hummer. Just like the truck with the same name our hummer was In Your Face Big. Big enough to prepare dinner for the whole RV park. When our son & daughter-in law, Jason and Elizabeth moved into a house with a yard we cleaned up our Hummer and regifted.
Next we bought one called a “Little Guy”. The first time I used it I cut my finger, the second time, the lid fell off. It blew out every time it was breezy and it never really got hot. In fact when we hosted our barbeque night for the folks at Tres Amigos last winter in Mazatlan, the cooks had three barbeques set up to handle the job and they used our “Little Guy” as a warming oven for the burgers cooked on the other two.
Now girls, you already know men often are very sensitive when it comes to matters of size. Well, our feelings are exactly the same when some one calls our barbeque a “warming oven.”
So this spring our daughter Pam and her soon-to-be husband James have moved into an apartment with a patio and now they need a barbeque. Once again we will regift
By far the most popular barbeque in the RV parks is a Weber. Every one I’ve talked to is very happy with their Weber and love the way they cook. I’ve never talked to anyone who wasn’t happy with their Weber Q.
Last night I brought our new Weber home and we set it up. Later we barbequed burgers. There is no question that it is well constructed and I was really impressed with the great job it did on the food, but what I’m really dazzeled with is that these guys really thought ahead when they built these things. See the big tables on either side? It doesn’t matter whether you are right handed or left handed, there’s a spot for your beer. Hell, if you wanted to you could even use one of the tables for food.
So why am I saying Happy Mother’s Day Mar? Because never again will she have to listen to me bitch about our X&D D?XN barbeque. Now I ask you: What better gift to give your gal?
