The sad back story is this: Two years ago my gas grill crapped out and I never got around to replacing it. I was looking for the "PERFECT" combination of portability (I have no use for "roast a whole pig" sized barbeques), convenience (that means gas) and price (yeah, I'm a tightwad).

Wal*Mart came through with an end-of-the-season deal, a CharBroil wood-fired combo grill/smoker...for $40!!! So, it gets lower marks on the "convenience" scale, but what a difference it makes on food. I used it last night, slow-roasting/smoking some dry-rubbed chicken (garlic powder, sage, oregano, salt, pepper, achiote powder). It gets no better than that.

Yes, I live in SoCal, about 18 miles from the Santiago Canyon fire, so go ahead and crack wise about the irony of lighting up during a firestorm. But a man's gotta eat, paisano, and besides, it was already smoky outside, so my little grill was barely noticed...except for that delicate scent of garlic, hickory, chicken, and beer Smile

Geez Bill, get back to your muktaaq and quit insulting our southern cousins.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Yeah, I thought 40 bucks was a great deal, until I came across a flowerpot grill that can be made for $10!!!

Mother was right -- if I get two of something for a nickel today, they'll be givin' 'em away tomorrow...
