Becoming a Man

Along the rite of passage highway which I have been zipping down this year, I found one of my favorite man creating moments to be the purchase of this fine barbecue. It was at a thrift store. I did a graceful job of helping them to see why it should only cost 10 dollars. Its a nice kenmore 3 burner, with a temperature gauge. Im smiling just writing about this excellent piece of equipment.

However I have found 1 glich in the man making perchase. The burners only have a tiny flame, and so I meet perhaps another right of passage; Needing to fulfill my manly duty of "Mr. Fix it"... and not having done so.

It is essential that you have hi heat. You might want to invest in an outdoor grill thermometer. Your meat on the grill can never, NEVER be good unless you can achieve high heat. Particularly, red meat.

good luck.
p.a. bed bath and beyond has great temperature gages and you can get a 20% coupon too.

Hey you too. we also just purchased a new bbq, because our last one had to be put out with a fire extinguisher. I'm hoping this one is better to us.

My dear husband,
You do such a good job of being a man. I mean...you are a real man. You're always doing manly things...you know, really masculine husbandly tasks. So, thanks you for fixing the grill, and improving my life in a very manly way on a daily basis. I Love You.
