When my wife and I moved into a house we used to rent in University District, we inherited a barbeque grill. When we moved out of that house, the landlord said we could take it with us. That grill stuck with us until we bought the house we live in now, but it eventually wore down to the point where I felt like I was risking life and limb (or at least my eyebrows) every time I wanted to grill some steaks. I eventually wheeled it out onto our street with a sign that read "free" on it, and someone whisked it away.

We went a year or more without a grill, until the weather showed some signs of life this spring. At that point, I decided to do some research online and ended up buying a Dyna-Glo grill from Amazon for about $275. The grill got excellent reviews so I was looking forward to trying it out.

Though I assembled the grill and hooked it up to a propane tank a couple of weeks ago, I didn't get to christen it until tonight. I cooked up chicken for my wife, hot dogs for my kids and a nice big steak for myself. The grill fired up instantly, cooked all three to near perfection (I need to leave myself some room to grow as a griller) and didn't disappoint, despite the already high expectations.

It felt good to barbeque again.

Its about that time of year again! Glad youre getting back into the flow.. I can never grill any chicken right with propane! I guess its my preference for the smoked flavor

Everybody loves a good barbecue, however, research has demonstrated that flame broiling meats at high warmth can cause the carcinogens heterocyclic amine and polycyclic sweet-smelling hydrocarbons to form. Furthermore, it is anything but an insignificant amount.
