haha going retro... i love it!! (there was a charcoal one on that 70's show that was adorable with a tulip table base!) i just got ours cause it was cheep!! were vegetarian so we dont grill much but im sure gas is better more efficient and cheaper in the long run!!
The one thing I miss the most about my ability to cook in the past few years, is not having a big 'ol bbq grill to use, and a back yard to do it in. Around here in the city, bbq/grilling is illegal (on balcony/porch etc.) without approved extinguisher systems, because the internet demonstrates that the common apartment dweller is a huge idiot when given the power of fire.
Plus, my inner girly-man loves Chesty Morgan needlepoint.
omg i diddent know that about the apartments there!! sheesh thats crazy but im an irresponsible home owner now that you mention it we dont have an extinguisher anywhere hahaha this homeowner is an idiot when given the power of fire i started it under the porch and it almost got to the ceiling haha ;)
See? That's what nearly everyone does! Or even if the fire is contained, people forget that wood or other stuff above it sucks up the heat and changes temperature or can burst from an hour or two of exposure or whatnot. Thus the law that says "you can't play with fire like that!" And the nearest source of effective extinguishing is often far enough away that by the time you come back, it's not gonna work or you're risking too much due to how it grew. I'm not tryin' to tell you how to run your bbq, just that what we're talking about is a common enough thing and I wish it were different (apartments with sprinklers, or areas that were easily able to bbq in without hassle or other trouble.)
