Out with the old….
And in with the new!
While the old grill doesn’t look that bad, the entire interior (including the burner, flame guard, and grate) had almost completely rusted through. In fact, flames were shooting out the sides and bottom last time we fired it up (pun intended). We looked at just buying replacement parts but they were going to cost nearly as much as new grill. So off to the store we went.
We ended up with a Char-Broil TRU-Infrared grill from Lowes using a handful of giftcards we had laying around. In order to fit it in our car, we needed to buy it disassembled, unpack the original box and then repack everything in the back seat of the car because the original box itself didn’t fit. It turned out to be quite the process but in the end it all came together smoothly.
Jennie headed out to the store for some fresh NY Strip steaks while I did my afternoon workout. After my 2 hour/20 minute bike/run brick, we fired up the grills and threw them on. The verdict?
Holy AWESOMENESS! They turned out perfect! They were the juiciest, tenderest steaks I have ever grilled.
Yes, I am holding my Kindle while I grilled. I was at 96% of my book – The Book Thief – and wanted to finish it up.
Now one of just
my the meat.
The steaks were good enough alone to make a meal, but we decided to add some veggies and carbs to the mix.
Alright, now how many of you are motivated to get out and grill this weekend????
