My parents gave me a BBQ for my birthday the year that I bought my house…17 years ago. It’s needed to be replaced for a few years now but it just wasn’t in the budget. Last week I went to our grocery store and on a last minute whim decided to check out what they had left in stock. I’d shared my thoughts with my Dad about wanting to buy a new BBQ and his one recommendation was to ensure that the racks were stainless steel. After replacing mine a few years back with some inexpensive wire racks I knew that he was right. Needless to say, by looking at the pic below you can tell that my BBQ had been out of order for a long time since I preferred not to add rust to my food!
When Hannah and I went to the seasonal section they had a few BBQ’s left. I was excited when I found one that met my budget and had stainless steel racks but unfortunately they were all sold out. After thinking about it a bit more I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask if they’d like to sell the floor model. I was super excited when not only did they say yes but they dropped the price by another $30 so it ended up being over 60% off the original price! Add to that that I had enough points to pay for it, I ended up getting it for FREE!! Dad was excited that it was already put together and he wouldn’t have to do it for me! A win-win for both of us!
We enjoyed our first meal on our BBQ! The second meal quickly took us back to reality. Tube steaks! (aka hot dogs) Now that’s more like it for us.
