Well a fried of mine who is equally obsessed with buying grills and smokers texted me last night to say there were some great deals on clearance BBQs at Home Depot. At my lunch today I checked out the closest one to where I work and came out with this:
Chargriller Akorn ...Originally $329 an marked down to $85!!! (Fills a gap in my grilling/smoking arsenal. My wife thinks I'm nuts.)
And then, with the wife's blessing, I got this:
The Rivergrille Cowboy Fire Pit and Grill. Originally $200, marked down to $50. My wife kept saying we needed a new fire pit, now I bought one that we can cook on!!! Downside is that it was clearance and as is, so the rotisserie piece was missing. Could call the company to replace it and if it is unreasonably priced, I'm sure I can find a cheaper alternative. I figured at $50 its a sturdy grill and fire pit even without the rotisserie piece.
I was very close to buying the exact Weber Genesis Gasser that I already have merely because it was $125, marked down from $600!!!! There was another guy looking at it and since I couldn't justify spending a dollar on the exact gas grill that I already have (and very rarely use), I basically talked him into buying it.
I have actually gotten to the point where I can't even count the cookers in my yard. I need help with this addiction, but I am loving every minute of it.
