My newest purchase — with a nice piece of meat from W-2’s

I was desperate.

I was looking for someone — anyone — who could help me out.

But, I struck out over and over again.

So I decided to just do it myself.

I bought a grill.

I love grilling. Or at least eating grilled food.

But I didn’t own one.

The closest thing I had was a George Foreman grill. And those are great, don’t get me wrong. But it’s not the same.

I talked with a couple of my friends, trying to see if they were doing anything on Monday night.

The final product

But alas, nothing came to fruition.

So, I went to Walt-mart to see what they had to offer.

What I found was perfect. It was a small grill that uses the small bottles of propane. It was rather inexpensive, so I bought it.

I got it home and opened the box and what I found was surprising.

I had to put it together.


Yep, a grill was assembly required.

So I spent a few — or 20 — minutes putting it together.

In anticipation of grilling, I had purchased a nice steak from W-2’s in Worthington. I put some seasoning on the steak and let it sit while I put my grill together.

Once it was together, I took it outside and started it up.

It started right away. Fortunately, and this was a real concern, it didn’t blow up in my face.

I threw on the piece of meat and started some green beans and potatoes inside.

About 30 minutes later, I had myself quite the meal.

It was possibly the best meal I have ever cooked on my own. And the best part is I had leftovers for the next day.

So now I have a grill, I can’t wait to put other things on it. I have a couple hot dogs in my fridge right now, they might be next. After that, perhaps some brats or burgers.

The possibilities are endless.

And that makes me excited.

      A smoker? Really? I can barely grill, let alone smoke something! But I might still have to crash the 2nd Annual Smoke Fest anyway.

      Get your clubs ready, we’re going to rock the tourney!
