Since we moved into the house back in November I have wanted to get a barbecue grill. We tried using the small one we had while traveling in the RV, but it is too short, and we have no outdoor table to put it on. Fabgrandpa had to set it on the porch and then stand on the ground beside it to cook our chicken the one time we used it here.
So, on Friday, we headed back over to Home Depot, when I had spotted some barbecues when we were there looking at the tractors. We found our idea of a “perfect” grill there. We decided on the Weber 18.5″ grill. We’ve had a Weber grill in the past, and it lasted a long time, and cooked things evenly. Not a bad deal at $79.
Saturday afternoon I walked out on the porch, and Fabgrandpa had the grill pieces spread all over the place. He said my part in this job was to sit and read the instructions, then tell him what to do. Hmmm, I think I am pretty good at that. So, we got started right away.
After several attempts, we got the grill all put together. My only physical contribution was to put this handle on the lid. He did everything else. Since it went together pretty quickly, we still had time to cook up a chicken for dinner.I cut a whole chicken in half, sprinkled on tenderizer generously, then sprinkled with a chicken seasoning that my sister gave me, and then put both halves on the grill.
Once the chicken is put on the grill, we put the lid on and walked away for twenty minutes. Turn it over, replace the lid, and walk away for another twenty minutes.
Check the chicken at the end of the second twenty minutes, and if it needs more time, cover and wait. We turn the chicken a second time and left it for another ten minutes. It turned out tender and delicious! I think we are going to love this grill!
