I bought a new grill on Friday. Our previous grill was bought on sale about 12 years ago. My wife and I bought the grill just before we got married in Omaha.

I had replaced the electronic starter on the previous grill four times and it broke again last fall. Rather then fix it again I decided to get rid of the old grill and purchase a new one.

One of the things that my wife and I are changing is that we are trying to buy items that are of "higher quality." In the past we tended to buy "cheap."

Manufacturing quality has diminished over the years. Nothing seems to last as long as similar items used to last.

I bought a Weber grill on Friday and I fired it up yesterday. It started on the first try and that is a good thing. I used to routinely manually light my old grill...

I grilled marinated pork chops for Karena and I and hotdogs for Karena and Graydon.

It was good...

There were not very many insect due to the late frost. It was a beautiful day to grill.

Mike, the Weber is a great choice. I used to buy a new char-broil or some other cheapy brand every two years, then I broke down and spent the dough to get a Weber...It was well worth it...goos product and a good design...

I put together a cheap grill once. I learned a number of things from the experience:

1. Never buy a grill that requires assembly.

2. Never allow a family member to supervise/kibitz the assembly of a grill.

3. Never allow someone with my low level of mechanical aptitude to assemble a grill.

4. If you must do one or more of the above, find directions that were written by someone whose first language is English.

The grill has never been right, and I've stopped using it altogether because it brings back such traumatic memories.
